About Vassia Athanasoula

I have grown up in Athens, Greece, and studied Architecture in the Polytechnic Institute of Lausanne , Switzerland. I visited Sifnos almost every summer since 1979, building strong emotions for the place... I managed to buy and renovate this traditional house in 2009. I live in Athens and I have three wonderful kids working and studying in Athens, the UK and Canada. I speak English, French, Italian and Greek ( and you will notice that everyone on the island can speak some English ).

Vassia Athanasoula purchased this house in 2009

Why Vassia Athanasoula chose South Aegean

Being a city child from Athens I missed a place of 'origin'; I always felt a bond to this island and I wanted to become part of it, to 'adopt' it. I also feel admiration for the power of vernacular architecture which is so simple and strong in the Cyclades... one can never repeat this in a contemporary building.

What makes this house unique

This house is very easy to live in all year round ( especially charming in June or September ) because everything is in walking distance! Also, although it is in the village, it is one of the few properties which has an open view towards the nearby villages and the sea! The terrace has full privacy which is rarely found inside the villages ; there are no noisy bars nearby , yet , at the same time , the "live" spot of the island is so close by. All the pedestrian small paths are kept very clean.

Magnifique séjour à Apollonia

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour somptueux. Cette maison est un vrai havre de paix, avec sa petite cour intérieur et sa terrasse fleurie. La vue est magnifique, et tous les matins c'est un vrai plaisir de découvrir toutes ces jolies maisons blanches au milieu d'une nature riche.

Cette île est plus qu'agréable, très familiale et nous avons été charmés par sa beauté et par l'accueil des Grecs.

Pour sûr, nous reviendrons!

Un petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

J'y reviens chaque année depuis 4 ans. Je m'y sens naturellement bien. La maison de Vassia est un havre de paix: belle, confortable, hospitalière et accueillante, à l'image de sa propriétaire! Tout est là pour que l'on s'y sente bien...La beauté des paysages, les plages aisément accessibles en bus, les bains de mer, les belles demeures d'Artemonas, de Kastro, d'Ano Petali, la gentillesse des habitants, les plats typiques et variés de l'île, what else ?

Magnifique séjour à Sifnos

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné sur l'île de Sifnos en octobre 2015, dans cette très jolie maison située au centre de l'île. Le village de Ano Petali se trouve à quelques kilomètres du port de Kamares où nous avons débarqué après six heures de bateau parti du Pirée et faisant escale dans diverses îles sur son parcours.

La maison à cour intérieure, typique de l'architecture des Cyclades, est aménagée avec un goût très agréablement traditionnel. La grande terrasse offre une vue sur la mer et sur le village d'en face, Artemonas.

L'île de moins de 3000 habitants, sans aéroport, invite à visiter les villages avec ses ruelles blanches: les nombreuses églises aux coupoles bleues et petits cloîtres situés tantôt au sommet des montagnes, tantôt au bord de la mer, les innombrables petites baies et plages, sans grand monde à cette saison, mais invitant encore au bain et les tavernes simples et d'autant plus accueillantes. Repos et sérénité: c'est ainsi que nous pourrions résumer notre séjour.

Pour des vacances de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Je ne peux que recommander cette adorable maison où j'ai déjà séjourné avec immense plaisir à trois reprises. Située entre Artemonas et Apollonia, on y est à la fois tout proche de ces deux pôles où l'on se rend à pied en quelques minutes, mais également au départ de magnifiques ballades à pied dans toute l'ile. La nature y est belle et variée et l'architecture locale très présente. C'est si simple de prendre le bus en bas de la ruelle pour se rendre dans toutes les plages de l'ile. L'intérieur de la maison est non seulement très confortable, mais il a de plus beaucoup de cachet tout en étant très facile à vivre. Nous y avons passé trois semaines à deux couples dont l'un avec enfants et c'est idéal pour tantôt partager des moments conviviaux, tantôt se retirer chacun de son côté. Deux terrasses orientées différemment permettent de chercher le soleil ou de l'éviter à différents moments de la journée. C'est un endroit que l'on ne peut quitter sans se réjouir d'y revenir!

Breathtaking View!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with 2 girlfriends July 2014 and 2015 and I keep coming back!! The house is very comfortable - we each had our own space/privacy but still keeping it cozy. One nite we invited friends over and sat on the back patio, overlooking the sea talking till the wee hours. The view was breathtaking. Getting to and from Artemonas and Apollonia, the neighboring villages , is not difficult and there you can find really nice shops, cafe's and small restaurants with great food and reasonable prices. I'm already planning my next visit!!!

It's adorable.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house for a week on May 2015. The house is adorable. I felt in love with it. The location is perfect. Just between Apollonia and Artemonas, the main villages. The view is suburb and just sitting outside with our morning coffee was the perfect start for the day. The decoration of the house is absolutely wonderful, the kitchen is fully equipped and all we needed for breakfast and dinner were there. I strongly recommend it.

Sifnos island is a unique balanced combination of picturesque , well-preserved villages of Cycladic architecture together with wonderful clean beaches with crystal clear waters and interesting untouched nature ;an 'acropolis' was also recently opened to the public for antiquity lovers . You can reach Sifnos only by boat ( or ferry ) and you can visit other islands of the Cyclades - like Milos or Folegandros or Paros... - without having to go through Pireas . The people here are easy going , offer excellent cuisine in small cosy restaurants ( as well as famous cookies and almond sweets ) ; they often also organize 'panigiria' (church feasts) with folk music and dance as well as traditional food for everyone. There is a functioning network of buses for all destinations ( beaches with tavernas, ruins & museums, villages...). Furthermore, if you like hiking, you can discover multiple charming pathways throughout the island. Pottery is the local craft and you find numerous traditional workshops ; there is a variety of choice from traditional to modern ! Everything is well accessible to everyone and has the right human scale (not too big, not too crowded, not too far, not too expensive ...) making holidays' living so easy ...
