Having a beach almost to ourselves was wonderful and the Talaras Taverna was a welcoming watering hole. The house is modern, spacious and very clean with lots of options for indoor and outdoor relaxation. We found the kitchen a bit limited for self catering, fine for breakfast but lacking serving plates for nibbles, sauces etc. Lots of beaches in the vicinity, several within 15 minutes walk and more with less than 30 minutes drive. Although we did not meet Eleni her mother was there to greet us and the house was easy to find.
Nigel the owner could not have been more helpful in giving me travel advice and all transactions were very easy.
Flora arranged taxis to collect us from the port and was waiting for us at the house on our arrival.
The house is very beautiful, spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated with modern bathrooms and a small but very adequate kitchen.
Located at the top of the hill the views from the terraces are stunning however small children or elderly people may find the steps an issue, we didn't mind the exercise at all.
Kini bay just a short walk away had many reasonably priced tavernas serving great food however we were more than happy to spend a few evenings on the terrace with a glass of wine and house provides a very good quality wireless speaker.
We chickened out of hiring a car but there is a regular and cheap bus service into Ermopolis from Kini, which was never late.
Ermopolis (the main town) 20 minutes by bus is very lovely, filled with interesting shops and tavernas to explore along streets paved with marble.
Syros itself is clean and feels very safe, all the locals were very friendly and always happy to help
We hope to return to this property soon.
