Make a holiday villa in Sifnos, Greece your home away from home

With HomeAway.co.uk you can track down your ideal holiday rental in Sifnos. You can choose between villas and apartments on this island that has a history dating back more than 4,000 years, and much for a modern tourist to enjoy, including the longest beach in the Cyclades. Sifnos villas tend to be whitewashed in the traditional style and, because the island is so rugged, they often command lovely views of the coast. Staying at a Sifnos holiday home it’s also natural that you should want to make more of the balmy days and evenings, and many rentals here offer a variety of extra comforts, including a garden or outdoor barbecue.


We have the perfect holiday rental to match your needs:


Things to do

-Beaches. Sifnos features some sublime Blue Flag beaches. Platis Gialos is considered one of the best, lying on the island’s south coast and boasting a long strip of sand next to calm and clear turquoise waters. A slightly quieter, though no less attractive beach can be found at the Bay of Vathi, on Sifnos’ west coast.

-Walking. There are numerous unforgettable walks to enjoy on the island. One of the best can be found at Moni Fyrogion – from here you’ll be able to follow a scenic path through a natural preserve up to the Prophitis Helias Monastery, which stands 700 metres above sea level in a spectacular location.

-Gastronomy. Sifnos’ cuisine is linked to its ancient and famous pottery industry, with many dishes slow-cooked in clay cookware. One such is chickpea soup, which is left on for the whole night before serving, or Mastelo, mutton in wine, cooked in a lidless ceramic container.

-History. At several locations around Sifnos you’ll be able to discover remnants pointing to the island’s ancient history. You can take a walking tour to see what’s left of the millennia-old gold and silver mines, while at Aghios Andreas you can see the remnants of a Mycaenean citadel, which sit atop a hills and command a memorable view of the sea.

-Boating. Hiring a motorboat for a day is a great way to explore the island’s coastline. This way you’ll be able to reach bays and coves that are inaccessible on land, swimming and snorkelling in pristine clear waters. On the east of Sifnos you’ll also get excellent views of the ancient Agios Sostis mines.

Weather in Sifnos

Sifnos is an island with a Mediterranean climate. This brings warm dry weather for as many as six months of the year. Temperatures reach the low-30s during the day in July and August, but you can expect pleasantly warm weather if you arrive at a Sifnos apartment early as May, or as late as October. Rainfall is uncommon, expect in the winter months – December and January get about six inches each, while daily highs at this time of year usually reach the low-teens.

Travel to Sifnos

If you’re flying to your beach holiday home in Sifnos then the most convenient route would be to fly to the neighbouring islands of Mykonos (JMK) or Santorini (JTR), with services offered by a number of airlines flying from UK cities. From these destinations you’ll be able to catch ferries to Kamares, on the west coast of Sifnos. There are also ferries linking Sifnos with Piraeus on the mainland, with a normal liner taking five hours and a high-speed Catamaran arriving in around 2.5 hours.

It can really offer harmony and relaxing but also luxurious vacations to all kind of guests (families, couples, groups of friends). We were 3 couples with 4 small children and really felt comfortable in this stylish and spacious house! The property was very clean and very well maintained. The pool was very nice, clean and with a fantastic view. The owners welcomed us at the harbour and we also got a basket full of nice Greek goodies like honey, wine, nuts etc. They were available whenever we needed them and provided us with all the necessary help or info. Even the cleaning lady that came once did a fantastic job ! Serifos was also even better than expected with many great beaches to discover and good food. Of course it can be windy sometimes but so are all the cycladic islands. We definitely recommend this place and we hope that we will try to visit it again soon!

It's in a great location as you can take a walk through the village, and visit Apollonia which is Sifnos main village and approximately 10 min away. It has spacious rooms decorated with great taste, two different balconies and a back yard to choose for your breakfast or your evening coffee. It's great for families and couples alike, it's a peaceful place, with great views and very close to the main village which has great nightlife. Also, it has various events that you can attend, we went to RadioActive's party, a local radio station, which was just outside the studio of the station and filled the whole the main street of Artemonas with people! On top of that the villa was about 5 min from the party, but just far enough so that when we got tired we were able to go and have a nice rest. Overall, I loved the island and the villa made our stay even better!
