“Petalaki” cosy cottage is located at the top of the strategically situated village of Ano Petali, - right at the center of the long stretch of the island’s main settlements starting from Apollonia, to Ano Petali and Artemonas. It is the ideal spot for those who like to go everywhere by foot, or those who wish to experience the real Sifnos. Accessible only via walking through the traditional white paved footpaths, it is a short stroll from the main town where all restaurants, super markets, bars and cafes are located and a slightly longer walk to Artemonas, one of the prettiest villages of the island.
To reach the house by car, one can get to the free Petali village parking area which is 5 kms from the port, and a 5 minute walk to the cottage.
Petalaki is a two bedroom traditional home that can comfortably sleep up to 5 persons. Originally built in 1905, it has thick stone whitewashed walls and wooden beam ceilings. It has just been renovated in April 2017, yet it has kept its traditional personality by retaining the interiors layout of the original island living - where dining areas were kept separate from sleeping and relaxing areas for practical reasons such as dirt and noise minimization.
Providing all modern comforts with a mix of old and new design elements and beautiful calming colors, it is sure to offer its guests a super cozy and inviting living space, spread over two separate buildings:
Building no1: Wooden floors throughout, with one double bedroom, and a two singles bedroom. Spacious living room featuring a sofa with a 1,90 x 90cm bed mattress that can comfortably sleep an extra person. Small office space with free wi-fi. Air conditioning. Veranda with sitting area and an amazing view.
Building no 2: Tiled floors, dining area with dining table and air conditioning. Fully equipped concrete kitchen with refrigerator, small oven and washing machine. Concrete bathroom with shower and hairdryer.
(**Please note, that to visit the bathroom and kitchen, one needs to walk out of the main building where the bedrooms and living room are, and step into the building next door.)
Petalaki’s front yard boasts a small sitting area nesting right underneath the church of Ai Yiannis where the children gather to play in the afternoons. Ideal for experiencing the authentic life of the village and being social with nearby locals who will always say hello!
