exceptionnal !

  • 5 of 5

We stay in the house for two weeks in July 2015 : we have 2 children ( 4 and 10 years old). We really enjoy our stay in this cosy interior, well maintained and ready to enjoy with a large garden with shade ( as described) . The house is not isolated but is part of a village and close to another house. It was a place where you enjoy to be in and out of the house. The owners were very helpful and manage to organise for us a sailing day on a private small boat. We really enjoy the stay and strongly recommend Syros (a authentic less touristic cycladic island).

Wunderschön eingerichtetes Haus in Syros

  • 5 of 5

Das sehr schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtete Haus und der wundervolle Garten sind ideal für Ferien mit Kindern. Die Besitzerfamilie Kosta und Elisa Mavropoulou sind sehr liebenswürdig und haben uns alles im Haus mit grosser Selbstverständlichkeit zur Verfügung gestellt. Das Haus ist sehr ruhig gelegen und das Meer ist zu Fuss problemlos erreichbar. Eine empfehlenswertes Haus!

Homeaway from home

  • 5 of 5

Elisa and her family are warm and welcoming. I walked in and felt hugged by them and the house. It is gorgeous! The colours and decor made me happy every morning I woke up to the crow of the rooster. The garden is wholesome. My eldest daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful day of cooking with Elisa and learnt so much, then our families gathered for a lovely feast in the evening. Syros itself is a wonderful island, not overly touristy. Ermoupoli is stunning and cosmopolitan. The weather should have been warm all the time we we visited, when it was warm is was perfect on the beaches, unfortunately we had some wind and rain, but that didn't bother us! Cooked all day on the rainy day in the best kitchen, warm and so well equipped. Of course it helped to have Elisa there too! Definitely a country feel to the whole stay, and we loved it. Thank you Elisa, Evie and Kostas, we really enjoyed meeting you, hope the birds are happy and kittens not too much trouble:) Luckily we arrived back in Australia without any hidden in our luggage. We will be back!

We are really glad we contributed in your having a lovely stay and appreciating what our beloved island has to offer-the rainy day was specially ordered for our cooking lesson, gorgeous weather every single day after you left!

Home from home in Syros!

  • 5 of 5

We were made to feel very much at home by Elisa and Kostas and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Syros. Their house is comfortable and we have happy memories of meals under the fig tree in the garden. Thank you for recommending local beaches and restaurants - we ran out of time in the end! Highlights of our stay include swimming in the beautiful clear water on beaches near the house, a magnificent Greek feast orchestrated by Elisa and a visit to fascinating Ermoupoli. A lovely family holiday.

Simply the best in wonderful Syros

  • 5 of 5

While I am familiar with the beauty of Greece after 40 years of extensive touring there – my first visit to Syros was a surprise and a very pleasant discovery. Ermoupolis with its marble streets and footpaths ,its Venetian and neoclassical mansions must be the most beautiful town in Greece.

The large town square surrounded by fine public buildings is impressive. Syros has a viable local economy and a population that is not engulfed by and spoilt by tourism, the fate of so many small Greek islands.

Our accommodation in Finnikas more than lived up to expectations, stylish comfortable, commodious, self contained with all mod cons, in a tranquil setting.

The hospitality of our hosts Kostas and Elisa was outstanding. They guided us to the many joys of the island –the wonderful restaurants and coffee shops, the sights, the beaches, the transport links across Syros and to the other islands. This first visit we hope is the beginning of a friendship that will enhance future visits to Syros. We will definitely be revisiting to enjoy all that syros has to offer and to make it a base to further explore the Cycladic group which includes the well known islands of Mykonos, Delos and lesser known and visited islands such as Sifnos and Milos
