WELCOME TO OUR HOUSE
In the picturesque port of Heronissos, at the northern part of Sifnos, a special house awaits for your vacation. Situated right next to the sea, it promises to lull you to sleep every night, with the splashing of the waves, and every afternoon, with the sounds of the seagulls. You can travel with your gaze to the blue of the sea and the horizon and let your soul find serenity in the tranquility of nature.
Built right next to the sea, away from the bustle, it will host your dream vacation with a view of the endless blue.
With great proximity to the beach of Heronissos
The blue-green beach of Heronissos, crystal clear and free of any rocks or seaweed, is situated right next to us. You can get there in just a stride, without needing any means of transportation. All you need is a towel and you are there!
The beach is small in length, sandy and the water is shallow, blue-green, calm and crystal clear. The tourism development is limited. The etesian winds cannot reach this beach, as it is protected by the cove. That is why families with small children love it! They also love it because they can watch their children from anywhere in the settlement, while they play carelessly at the beach.
The port of Heronissos is considered as one of the less windy places of the island because of its morphology, even though it is placed in the most northern part of the island. As it stays intact from the etesian winds, it promises to offer you moments of relaxation in its constantly calm waters.
The old reserved kiln of the ex pottery laboratory
Some photographs of the well-reserved pottery, that transfers the history of our great-grandfathers to today’s life and is worth a visit by young, but also older children. Through the flames of this kiln, countless clay products were made. As the ground of Heronissos is suitable for the production of refractory pottery, it gave the local craftsmen the opportunity to make a variety of products for domestic use, storage and decoration, which inundated not only this island but other areas as well. Today this kiln has long stopped working, but remains in its place to remind us of the past of this land and the people who lived here…
SOME INFORMATION ABOUT OUR HOUSE
Built according to the traditional architecture of the island, the residence room of the old pottery laboratory was fully renovated in order to meet the contemporary needs.
Its initial design was meant to serve as a summer house for the owners, rather than as an accommodation to rent. The inside consists of a room and a bathroom that can accommodate a couple or even a small family.
The house also features external water supply for the shower and a big yard, which is ideal for the children to play or for you to enjoy your book, with a dreamy view to accompany you. What really stands out is the huge balcony. It is built literally on the sea with a special view. At the end of your stay, you will not want to leave it!
The room provides you with:
• Air-Condition for the room
• Satellite wireless internet, both in the inside and the outside of the house
• Satellite T.V. with the whole package of channels offered by OTE TV
• Basic kitchen equipment and hot plates
• Everyday cleaning services if wanted
Information about the neighbourhood
When hearing the term “neighbourhood”, one can imagine something noisy, with people going back and forth and music permeating the ambience.
In our neighbourhood, everything seems more peaceful. There is only one house with a small family guaranteeing your tranquility. Are you looking for something better? In the settlement’s broader area, you can find more houses, a mini market, a coffeehouse and two picturesque tavernas (traditional restaurants) that can guarantee fresh and delicious fish.
THE VIEW TO THE ENTRANCE OF THE PORT
Between two mountainous bodies that stand one across the other, the sea is moving slowly and indolently, as if it wants to quench the insides of the dry earth. And you stand there, watching this endless process and filling with serenity. After all, heaven on earth is a matter of choice!
At the sea
The view from our house’s yard
It changes according to your orientation. At the range of a 360ο view, one can fit in mountains, sea, white houses, in a mosaic of land, boats resting at the port before embarking for the wild Aegean, sun, happy faces walking, swimming, dreaming…
The view from our house’s yard during the night
A wild and primitive sense overwhelms you while watching the sea sparkle in the dark, whilst its aura softly touches you. If you look at the sky, you will see millions of stars clearly, waiting to jump into the universe and get lost. But with every falling star you will wish to freeze time and make that night in Heronissos last forever.
The sea is literally below us.
Day and night, it is there calling you. Like the Sirens did with Odysseus. Impossible to resist its beauty. Indulge it. Take in its saltiness. Let it be engraved on your memories as a medicine for the hardships of the winter. And, next summer, come back to find it. It will be waiting for you.
