Delfini Beach, Syros - Paradise - beautiful villa

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,184 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Sleeps 4 - 5 people

Less that 200 meters from the best beach in Syros, this beach-side family friendly villa has its own charming garden with a large garden pergola. The house also has a large balcony with a with dining table area + sun deck chairs overlooking the ocean and is just a few minutes walk from the pristine Delfini beach.

The villa sleeps 4 - 5 people. It has two bedrooms - one bedroom with a queen size double bed and the other bedroom has two single beds which can be turned into one double bed. The sofa in the living area can be turned into one extra bed if necessary. The house has two bathrooms and a modern kitchen with a dishwasher, dining and living area, flat screen TV. The house also has access to a laundry room.

The house is tastefully and comfortably furnished and has a stunning view over the Mediterranean and the pristine beach of Delfini from inside and outside.

The path to the beach is just a few minutes walk through the property"s private gardens.

Delfini is a tranquil area, ideal for families and the beach is accessed by a narrow partly unmade valley road - it is a mixture of gorgeous villas and un-spoilt nature. One traditionally Greek taverna is open in season at the far end of the beach about ten minutes walk away plus a small snack bar.

Built on a gentle hillside overlooking a nature protected bay with fabulous swimming and crystal clear waters. The gardens lead to coastal paths to other remote beaches and rocky areas covered with wild herbs such as wild sage, thyme and oregano – a delight to the senses in all seasons. In spring the whole mountainside is full of gorgeous wild flowers. Although the climate is a little cooler earlier in the year, this is a wonderful time to visit, when beaches are nearly deserted and the island is home only to its usual Greek population.

Inside the gates there is parking for up to 3 cars. The Greek-style rocky gardens are planted with local species that can survive the long, warm, dry summers. The whole area is fenced, hedged or walled, so it is private and secluded.

Once a week cleaning is included, all linen and towels are provided and changed each week. You may decide to dine 'at home' and admire the sunsets, or try one of the many lovely tavernas in nearby Kini, or even venture further afield in the many lovely villages along the coast.

To make the most of your stay in Syros, we recommend you hire a car. We can arrange this for you with pick up from either the port or airport when you arrive to make your transfer and luggage handling easy.

The main town and port of Hermoupolis is a gem of Italian and Greek architecture, with shops, supermarkets, banks, market, cinemas and a splendid theatre.

Syros is unlike many other better known islands, it’s very safe and has few foreign tourists. The island has enjoyed prosperity from Greek ship owners, industry, boat building and repair. Impressive Neo-Classical buildings decorate the town, edging a large central marbled square, where frequent cultural displays can be enjoyed from surrounding bars and tavernas. The older part of the city Ano Syros, is a walled hill-top area crowned with a Catholic cathedral.

Each July, the Festival of the Aegean offers world class performances in opera, music, dance and drama at the tiny Apollon Theatre a small-scale version of La Scala in Milan, and local galleries showcase art from Greece and beyond. Syros has sun, sea, beautiful beaches, historical buildings, museums and cultural events.

About Joan Bowell

We are a Danish/English couple that purchased the land and developed the estate from scratch . We are creative people - a writer working with the United Nations in New York and an artist. It has taken many years to find this unique piece of land that embodied the vision of the perfect estate. We have created a sanctuary of tranquility.

We wanted to create a place that couples and families found enchanting and full of well-being.

Joan Bowell purchased this villa in 2010

Why Joan Bowell chose Delfini

We wanted to create a family orientated place where friends to the estate might come year after year because they had the same values as we do - quiet, the beauty of Greece and a place where you can live at ease - day and night. With subtle night lights one can eat in the gardens on ones private balcony / garden or in the well equipped villas. Enjoying eating and having a drink reading and relaxing under the stars is such a special experience and to hear the waves lapping against the sea shore - unique in this world.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is near to wonderful restaurants and a truly great town whilst feeling a little 'old Greek', the estate being at the end of an unmade up road with only exclusive villas with large gardens in the area and sheep and bee hives in the mountains around and through the valley to Delfini. This is a controlled nature-preserved area where only a limited number of houses have been able to be built - so very exclusive and with a beach that has not been exploited -combing natural beauty with high quality villas.

We are cat lovers and have offered a home to the cats of Delfini who are fed in the lower gardens. They are clean, cared for, have been neutered and been maintained by the local vet to a very high standard. They are tame but with children it is always good to guide them in interacting with cats. All are welcome to watch them being fed morning and evening.

Delfini Beach, Syros - Paradise - beautiful villa
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews
Apple Hill, ON, Canada

Peaceful, beautiful, comfortable, restful, magical

  • 5 of 5

Paradise! I stayed here in the off-season, during the beautiful spring, in the second house from the top of the hill. Everything was perfect! The decor is tasteful and lovely. My bed was super comfortable. I loved being able to sit on the terrace or in the living room and see, hear, and smell the ocean. The photos in the listing are very accurate!

Everything was absolutely spic and span and the owners were warm and welcoming.

I loved being able to walk down to the beach and along the seaside paths that lead through the hills surrounding the water. Just such a perfect environment to relax in. I could have stayed there for six months, but alas, was only there a week.

Syros is an amazing island and Delfini is very laid back and sweet. This villa offers an excellent home base for your explorations! I enjoyed a ferry trip to Tinos while staying here. Syros itself is wonderful.

I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to anyone who wants a beautiful, peaceful, well-maintained holiday villa!

Beautiful, peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a small villa on this property for our honeymoon in June. It could not have been more perfect. The villa has everything you need - full kitchen, towels, comfortable furniture, A/C, and amazing outdoor spaces (several sitting areas both covered and uncovered overlooking the ocean). The wonderful Delfini beach is less than a 5 minute walk down the hill, featuring a small cafe and a taverna where you can get drinks and food right on the beach (lounge chairs, umbrellas, and tables are provided). The weather was perfect. Kini, a small town with grocery stores and many good restaurants, is a 15-20 minute walk down the road. Perfect for a single person, couple, or family looking to get away from it all and have a quiet, peaceful holiday. Very welcoming.

Idyllic holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent an idyllic holiday in the wonderfully peaceful surroundings of this beautifully-located villa. The quiet beach was only a short stroll away through lovely gardens with a convenient taverna nearby. The villa itself was clean and well maintained with everything we needed.

Excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

This was already my third trip to this Estate. I have come back, because the place offers ecxcellent possibilities for a peaceful holiday. The nearby beach and adjoining Nature Preserve surroundings give excellent opportunities for outdoors activities, hiking etc. The house is beautiful, tastefully furnished and decorated. It is well kept, garden is very nice, elegant.

The village with good restaurants is within walking distance.

I am looking forward to come again and highly recommend this place to everyone.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This place kept all its promises! An elegant, clean and well equipped house in beautiful surroundings made our stay perfect. We were met by nice and caring housekeepers and hosts who made us feel at home immediately, and gave us a perfect start for 14 lazy days. A few minutes walk to the beach with crystal-clear water in a sheltered bay and with a very good taverna, nice walks in the hills nearby, gourmet-restaurants in Kini, undescribeable sunsets: We`ll be back!

The the villa is private with its own garden available for the exclusive use of guests with olive and fruit tress, borghanvillas and pergolas for al fresco dining, Illuminated garden areas with off road driveway, with stone paths and shaded areas to sit and open areas to relax and sun yourself.

Delfini is an exclusive bay on the island of Syros with about a dozen private villas and our estate is amongst the absolute best locations on the island overlooking the beach and out to the Greek islands beyond. It is a place of tranquility and great natural beauty. The sandy beach is safe and child-friendly with crystal clear shallow waters. One taverna at the far end of the beach opens in late spring/summer whilst footpaths lead across the mountains about a half an hour walk) to the remote beaches of Northern Syros in one direction and to the busy picturesque village of Kini (about 15 minutes walk) in the other.

The bay is set in an amphitheater of hills overlooking the pristine waters of the Aegean and offers a perfect view of the sunset. It is just a short walk down the private path to the beach where you can swim safely by day or night.

The nearby fishing village of Kini - about a kilometer along the valley, has shops, bars, tavernas and a mini market. A regular bus service links Kini, Hermoupolis, the capital and villages to the south.

Syros is a little-known island with relatively few tourists. As the capital of the Cyclades, it has fine buildings, a theatre and opera house as well as many interesting museums and many cultural events.

Travel is by plane and ferry via Athens, Naxos or Mykonos. We can advise about travel arrangements and assist you from the port or airport to the to the property. We can also arrange car hire, boat trips and catering, if you wish.

Basic mid week cleaning and linen changes are included.
