Rent a holiday home on the island of Syros, a home away from home

The small Greek island of Syros in the Aegean Sea provides holidaygoers with the perfect combination of unspoilt nature and relaxation, mixed with modern life. This predominately rural island is home to Ermoupolis, the capital of the Cyclades archipelago, and is the northern-most port for the chain of islands. While Ermoupolis provides visitors with busy life, the rest of the island is a paradise for visitors to truly experience Greek culture. An affordable and comfortable holiday rental in Syros is simple to find at HomeAway.

For those travelling in larger groups, rental villas in Syros offers up plenty of space for groups of up to ten or more. Modern conveniences are also easy to come by in a Syros holiday villa, be it wireless internet, air conditioning, or satellite television. Even if travelling with pets, it is simple to find a comfortable holiday apartment in Syros with HomeAway. Many travellers to the area like to island hop, and HomeAway also offers holiday homes on other islands. For example, HomeAway has a selection of accommodation options in Mykonos, and lots of comfortable places to stay in Santorini.

Things to do

Explore Ermoupolis:

Ermoupolis is the bustling capital of Syros as well as of the Cyclades archipelago. The town's unique architecture and fascinating history make it a must-see. Stroll the streets, visit museums, and indulge in delicious Greek food at one of the many taverns and restaurants.

Take in the view from the Church of Resurrection:

Located on Vrodado Hill, one of the highest points in Ermoupolis, the Church of Resurrection offers visitors spectacular views of the city and Aegean sea. Not only that, the neighbouring islands of Tinos and Mykonos can also be seen from here.

Relax on Galissas Beach:

Approximately three miles from Ermoupolis lies Galissas Beach, a popular beach resort. It was given the EU Blue Flag award, ensuring that it has some of the cleanest and safest waters along its golden sand coastline. Authentic taverns, traditional cafés and restaurants can be found here as well.

Stroll through Ano Syros:

This 13th-century Venetian settlement is located within walking distance of Ermoupolis. Ano Syros was constructed as an amphitheatre in order to better protect it from enemy forces. Narrow streets, stone walls, wooden balconies, and whitewashed steps make up the landscape of this charming town. A visit to the Catholic Cathedral of Saint George is recommended.

See the noble gardens in Poseidonia:

Named after Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea, the village of Poseidonia is located about eight miles southwest of Ermoupolis. Lush gardens, fragrant pine trees, and neoclassical houses characterise the town, which was the chosen location for Greek nobility of the 19th and 20th centuries to build their impressive mansions.

Bask in calm waters at Fetouri Beach:

This small and quiet beach on the southwest coast of Syros is the perfect place to unwind. Warm and shallow waters along with soft sand make it ideal for families with children. The coves of Komito and Agathopes are nearby, as is the town of Poseidonia.

Weather on Syros

Syros has a pleasant Mediterranean climate with dry, hot summers paired with mild winters. The summer average temperature is around 28-30°C, and winter temperatures rarely drop below 10°C. Rain is scarce during the summer months, and strong winds offer a welcome, if not sometimes intense, break from the heat.

Travel to Syros

The best way to reach the island is via ferry or hydrofoil. Daily trips from the port of Athens bring visitors to the island in about four hours. Other daily sea routes run to and from Thessaloniki, Rafina, and Lavrio. There is also Syros Island National Airport (JSY) located south of Ermoupolis, with daily flights arriving from Athens Airport (ATH) each morning. The flight takes a mere 35 minutes.

The house is 2 minutes from the main square, and taxis and buses to the rest of the island. And Kostas and Elisa are extremely lovely hosts. We look forward staying here again soon.
