Our house is a listed neoclassical mansion,built in 1873 in the heart of Ermoupolis, a town renowned for its 19th architecture. It is fully restored and refurbished with care and respect to its history, while modern comforts have been added to it. We have maintained all the original wooden floors and ceilings in the bedrooms and the marble floors in the rest of spaces. The bathrooms are all marble.The furniture is mostly antique pieces, either inherited or carefully selected and everything in the house reflects its glorious past.

There are five bedrooms, two of which single.The remaining three are double, two with double beds and one with two four-poster beds.

There are three bathrooms, one with bathtub, two with shower.

There is a fully equipped kitchen and adjoining dining room that sits 8-10, and a cosy living room.

The house occupies the first floor of the building(200 square meters). The ground floor is wine cellars and storing space and on the second floor that has an independent entrance at the back of the house, there are two more one bedroom apartments with balconies with spectacular views, that can be rented independently or along the main house for an extra fee.

At the back of the house there is also a lovely patio shaded with plants, with comfortable dining and sitting spaces, to be shared among guests of both floors.

At the roof of the house there is a wonderful terrace with panoramic views over the town, the port and the sea, perfect for an evening drink.

Access to the house is via steps,as the whole old town is built on a hill and all the streets are pedestrian and extremely peaceful and quiet.,I

This means that it is not suitable for people with moving disabilities.

A beautiful, spacious, quiet house in town

  • 5 of 5

Villa Maria had everything we needed: big bedrooms, good communal areas and an outdoor eating space and roof terrace. 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.

Atemberaubende Villa in zentraler Lage auf Syros

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa Maria in Ermoupoli ist die ideale Adresse für jeden Urlauber auf Syros, egal ob man nur für einen Kurztrip fährt oder für mehrere Wochen dort bleibt. Dieses Jahr war bereits mein zweites Mal bei Elisa und Kostas und ich hoffe diese junge Tradition im folgenden Sommer weiterführen zu können. Die Villa ist stilecht eingerichtet und geräumig, mit sehr hohen decken und genug Platz um sich zurückzuziehen. Die geteilten Terrassen bieten eine schöne Aussicht über Ermoupoli und sind der perfekte Ort um den Abend ausklingen zu lassen.

Kostas und Elisa sind hervorragende Ansprechpartner und haben für alle Ecken der Insel ihre Geheimtipps für Strände und gutes Essen, auch in meinem zweiten Jahr habe ich noch nicht alle ausprobieren können. Die Insel bietet eine Vielzahl an Unternehmungsmöglichkeiten von den urig-verwinkelten Gassen in Ano Syros bis zu den modernen Restaurants und Bars in Ermoupoli ist für jeden etwas dabei. Gerade im Sommer findet viel statt, wenn die Saison für Tanz-, Musik- und Filmfestivals beginnt.

A dream-like, warm place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Kostas and Elisa's place for ten days and I wish I could have stayed more in this impressive and well organised place. The hosts manage to provide everything (even fresh espresso coffee!) and meet our needs while remaining totally discrete and responsive. The location is ideal, as it is very central but on a quiet colourful street. You can take your breakfast on the terrace, enjoying an amazing view. Even the cat roaming around the place, named Syra, is as cute as a cat can be! It is high recommendable.

A beautiful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Maria is a beautifully restored villa whose owners take very good care of. If you're a fan of antique furniture like me, you'll love the wooden furniture and the whole decor that takes you back to another time period. The space it covers is large and comfortable, with three bathrooms and several bedrooms, while also providing the traveller with all the necessities he/she needs, such as towels, a washing machine, a fully equipped kitchen, wifi and more! There were nine of staying in the villa and we had plenty of room. My bedroom had a view of Hermoupolis. The villa also has a rooftop where you can sit and drink your morning coffee while enjoying the view of Hermoupolis. Also, the owners are very helpful and hospitable and were there for whatever we needed. I highly recommend Villa Maria to everyone, it's a stay that you'll never forget! Well I can't at least.

A neoclassical marvel in Hermoupolis

  • 5 of 5

Elisa and Kostas are marvelous and accommodating hosts - from lending the smallest missing ingredient to offering tips on the island and town at large, they made us feel at home. The house itself is unique: an open floor plan, tall ceilings, handcrafted wardrobes and furniture, finely detailed wall paintings, all impeccably restored. I'd recommend the property without any reservations, especially if you are a large family or group of friends. The various rooms give each person their space, sea views, and plenty of common areas. A perfect jumping off point to explore the cuisine, art, film and beaches of Syros, a (thankfully) unexploited little gem in the Aegean. Located right above the main square on a quiet street filled with rhododendrons.

Villa Maria: Beautiful neoclassical mansion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Maria this year for a week to visit the annual Syros International Film Festival and had a wonderful time. The house has a lot of character and exudes a relaxed but sophisticated Mediterranean atmosphere. The bedrooms are spacious, cool and ornate; some of the bathrooms have been maintained in their original style; and due to the high ceilings the temperature is very agreeable. The dining room and kitchen have been well maintained and can accommodate a small family as easily as a larger group. Elisa and Kostas are very helpful hosts who are always ready to provide tips to make one's stay on Syros even better. The house is a short walk up some stairs from the extremely charming main square in Syros, where you can find nice restaurants, bars, coffeeshops, bakereries and an outdoor cinema. Altogether I would highly recommend Villa Maria to any group of people looking to have a relaxing stay at a high level of comfort on the beautiful island of Syros.

Ermoupolis is one of the most beautiful cities in Greece, full of historical neoclassical mansions, lively market, idyllic cobblestone streets lined with cafes and restaurants, an open-air cinema and a fabulous opera house (Apollo)where international musical events and festivals -like the festival of the Aegean-take place every summer.

Syros is ideally located in the heart of the Cyclades and many islands such as Tinos, Myconos, Naxos, Paros, Sifnos, Serifos, are just a couple of hours boat ride, perfect for day- trips.

Syros can offer a unique combination of culture and nature. Whether you are after an opera festival, nature trails with breathtaking sea views or sandy beaches, you will find it here!
