Peaceful villa with 5 bedrooms at the center of vibrant Sifnos Chora

Beautiful traditional villa built in modern style and located at the edge of lively Apollonia, the island's capital in the village of Katavati. Overlooking the mountains with Prophet Ilias monastery at the peak, it is just a few minutes walk from Apollonia and offers complete isolation from all tourist attractions giving its guests the opportunity to relax in its spacious private lounging areas and verandas. Ideal for two families with kids since it includes three master bedrooms with queen size beds and en suite bathrooms, a bedroom consisting of two single beds and a small guesthouse with a double bed and private shower. 1 large dining table and 2 outdoor dining tables, sofas and armchairs are perfect for relaxing in and entertaining and easily accommodate all its guests at all times of the day. Amenities such as a fully equipped kitchen / BBQ, WI-FI, LCD TV, HIFI, Dvd, etc... help make any guest feel right at home.

Most of the island’s beaches (Platis Gialos, Faros, Chrisopigi, Fasolou, Faros.) are 10-15 minutes drive, except Vathi which is about 20min.

With the largest markets of the island just 100m away and easy access to the center of Sifnos by foot (5-10min walk) or by car (2min), all supplies are at your reach.

The villa holds renting license by the Greek National Tourism Organism. http://et.diavgeia.gov.gr/f/eot/find/ypogid:27598? Permit Number: MHTE1172?92000953901

Perfect house for vacation retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house is light and bright and spacious with a large terrazza and grounds outside with two large dining tables - flowers galore - beauitful white everywhere but the house is comfortable not formal -tastefully decorated everywhere - comfortable beds - there were 5 of us and everyone had their own room - lots of windows and tons of fresh air - my favorite thing was to wake up early in the morning and hear the animals on the island waking up in the mountains that surround the house -- beaches and towns are all minutes away and easy to get to - we loved our week in Sifnos - wished we could have stayed longer.

A perfect holiday destination!

  • 5 of 5

Sifnos is just a perfect holiday destination...

.. and the house of Eleni & Konstantinos is a « little paradise »!

The house and the garden correspond perfectly to the description and the photos provided through the website. This is an amazing villa, lovingly decorated. It is roomy, with lots of storage space. The garden and its landscaped terraces are very pleasant.

The whole property was perfectly cleaned when we arrived and a cleaning service is available if needed.

We had only network contacts with Eleni and Constantinos (by email or by phone); by the way they have always been available for us and we really appreciated our exchanges.

The location is also perfect because it is very close from Apolonnia, even on foot. Food markets and many attractions are available near the house and very nice walks are possible, directly from the village.

We would absolutely recommend this property to our friends; the house is just perfect for 1 or even 2 families.

A lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We were 8 Italian friends and we had such a great time in Sifnos.

The house is very beautiful, comfortable and peaceful but at the same time it is close to all you could need during your stay. We had such amazing dinners in the front terrace!

The owner of the property are amazing hosts. If I decide to come back to Sifnos, I would rent their home again!

Un paradis sur la belle île de Sifnos!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 10 jours extraordinaires dans cette villa! Nous étions 2 couples d'amis avec 4 enfants de 2 à 8 ans. La maison est plus que confortable, décorée avec beaucoup de goût et d'élégance, complètement équipée de la cuisine aux chambres (ce qui est très pratique quand on a des enfants en bas âge!). Une mention spéciale à la superbe terrasse !!!! La maison est bien située, le village d'Appolonia étant tout près. Après une belle journée à la plage, se poser sur la terrasse avec un verre de rosé frais et admirer le coucher de soleil...quel souvenir! Je recommande cette location sans la moindre hésitation et j'espère y revenir très vite avec des amis et de la famille. De plus, habituée des voyages en Grèce, l'île de Sifnos est vraiment magnifique!

Excellent!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house!! We had a wonderful time in this traditional villa on our Greek vacation. The house is fully equipped for cooking, having BBQ and nice breakfast with coffee/espresso. The place is the best! There is a beautiful quiet square for the children to play right in front of the house!!! The location is perfect, quiet, in a nice traditional neighbourhood and in 5 Minutes walk you are in the centre of the city where all the bars and restaurants are. The house is perfect for a romantic getaway, a trip with friends, or families with young children. Would highly recommend!

Merveilleux

  • 5 of 5

La maison de Konstantinos est tres bien placée au calme mais à portée de sandales de l'animation d'appolonia.

Tres bien équipée et les espaces extérieurs judicieusement repartis. Nous avons pu cuisiner tous les jours à la grecque !

La maison était très propre, le ménage à ete fait une fois en milieu de semaine.

Merci encore pour cette decouverte.

Snowy-white houses with traditional chimneys made of potter’s clay and small churches with blue domes, built on green hills, which lead to sandy beaches. This is Sifnos, the gem of Cyclades. The capital of Sifnos is Apollonia since 1836, which is also called Stavri and which is sprawling out amphitheatrically along three hills in the center of Sifnos. At the west there is the port, Kamares. To the north of Apollonia there is Artemonas, a jewel of Sifnos with mansions of neoclassical style, with gardens and yards full of flowers, while to the east, Kastro (the ancient capital) will fascinate you with its architecture! To the south Katavati is a quiet neighborhood at end of the long narrow sidewalk running throught Apollonia.

Other beautiful coastal summer resorts in Sifnos are Platis Gialos, Faros, Chrissopigi, Vathi, Kastro and Cheronissos.
