Great House with Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

It doesn't get better than this. We spent a week in this lovely home with a view of the Aegean Sea and located in a totally private setting. The house is tastefully decorated and had everything we needed as well as a comfortable veranda with a view of the sea. The location is really ideal being only a short drive to Ermoupolis but also close to a number of good beaches where we swam most every day.

We vacationed on 3 Greek Islands and found Syros to have the most amenities and the largest population. We enjoyed the quay in Ermoupolis and also the picturesque streets in the district of Vaporia. Then we walked the quaint streets of Ano Syros and ended our day with a great meal at Taverna Lilis. We also explored the south coast of the island - Vari over to Fonika where we enjoyed a great seafood dinner at Arxantariki Thalassa.

Lastly we want to thank Alexia and Terry for inviting us into their home. And we hope to visit here again sometime in the future.

Vacanza indimenticabile

  • 5 of 5

Tutto quello che ci si può aspettare per una vacanza rilassante e piacevole puoi trovarlo qui. La casa é spaziosa e fornita di ogni accessorio. É arredata con gusto ed eleganza rustica. Ogni piccolo dettaglio é curato con attenzione. La location é davvero rilassante, appartata ed intima. La vista é eccezionale, la posizione strategica perché praticamente al centro dell isola. Inoltre i proprietari di casa ci hanno coccolati parecchio, portandoci i prodotti della loro fattoria ogni volta che ne avevano l'occasione. Un posto che consiglieremo senza dubbio a tutti!

This traditional farmhouse was a wonderful place to stay for our holiday. The setting in the hills with a view on the sea a few kilometers away is exceptional, with luscious greenery, a mixture of pine trees and eucalyptus. The location is very quiet. The house itself is charming, very clean and adequately furnished with complete facilities, and a lovely terrace to have meals on, or just enjoy the peaceful surroundings and beautiful view. The owners are charming and very helpful. Having a car or a motorbike is a must and is very easy to rent (the owners can help you do this). There are many interesting and beautiful places to visit in Syros and its capital town Ermoupolis, and the island's beaches are accessible and very pleasant (quite a few sandy beaches). We highly recommend this traditional farmhouse for a peaceful holiday.

Dreamy house, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks at the Chroussiano Farmhouse and it was one of the best things we have ever done. The whole booking process was super easy and a few days upon arrival Alex contacted us and made sure we made it to the property without any inconvenient. Due to medical reasons, she wasn't able to come and meet us, but she was super attentive and eager to pick up our calls any time we had a question. Then his husband also had to go back to Athens, so we spend must of our time alone, hanging out with the cats and enjoying the sweet smell of rosemary every afternoon when the sun set.

Terry's parents were in the house next door, and even though they didn't speak english, we really enjoyed their company any time they showed up. They would shows us the farm and bring us fresh eggs every morning and other produce that I used for cooking... I even made a fig tart with figs, almonds and eggs from the farm!

The house is super nice, very clean, and it has all the commodities (ac, internet, an equipped kitchen, etc). No washing machine though, but you can take your laundry anytime you go and visit the town.

The property is on top of a hill, so it is necessary to have a vehicle. We didn't have one, so we had to take cabs all the time. Cabs are totally fine, but when you stay for three weeks, you end up using them a lot! Also, the beaches are a little bit far, so better to drive than walking on a road with no sidewalks under the sun.

In general, we loved our time at the Chroussiano Farmhouse and we can't wait to go back now with our kid!

Beautiful, relaxing place for a family hoilday

  • 4 of 5

The owners are fabulous hosts and even met us at the ferry to make things easy for us. The location is a lovely peaceful spot with great veiws of the countryside. Our daughters loved going to feed the chickens each morning with the owners and collectng the lovely eggs. There are great lemons grown around the property too. Alexia speaks good English and was always keen to share her local knowledge about anything from where to find good food shops to beautiful beaches. The beaches were all really great for younger children, gently shelving beaches and no strong tides, our chilrden loved them. The main bedroom in the property was a great size especially if you have younger children needing help to get dressed or keen to pop in and out. Our children loved the upstairs bedroom too. The location is close to the island's capital so it is easy to stroll around the beautiful streets and enjoy the many good restaurants. The fishing boats come in there and the fish which you can buy from the boats is wonderful and the fishermen are very friendly. We all found the holiday brilliant and we all still talk about the warm nights spent sitting on the terrace you see on the website and the lovely family that helped make it a special holiday. We would love to return soon.

Chroussa is a village situated in the centre of the island. Its farms are built in traditional style and are typical of this kind of architecture in Syros. One also finds some surprisingly grand country houses in neoclassical style, dating from the 19th century and screened from the road by pine groves. Amazingly green gardens thrive in the shade of these tree.

You can enjoy walking around the village of Chroussa or trekking at the north of the island, where you can find the best beaches of the island.

Syros island is found almost in the centre of Cyclades, 83 naval miles from Piraeus and 62 naval miles from Rafina.

The travel with ferry-boat lasts roughly four hours, while with the modern speedboats it lasts 2 hours.

From the hill of Ano Syra the visitor can see many islands and immediately he will understand why Syros developed in the administrative, commercial, intellectual and cultural centre of Cyclades.

Syros is called 'The princess of Cyclades'.
