Our house has been in the family for 3 generations. Recently renovated, the delightful Greek, white and blue home is perched on the mountain over looking the Islands, city, and harbor. Our past guests just love the amazing view from the large rooftop patio! Simply breathtaking! The floor plan and roof top patio is perfect for 2-5 guests. The house is located on the capital island of Syros, which is about 25 km away from Mykonos (boat access).
the home is located in the inner city and includes the touches of true Greek architecture. The home is accessed though a narrow walkway amongst other homes or by a staircase off the road and parking lot.
This two room home features a ton of living space including vaulted ceilings in the living room/second bedroom, a brand new kitchen, a bathroom, and three outdoor living spaces that include a private back courtyard, a huge roof top dining room and seating area, and a front porch. It is ideal for one or two couples or a family. The living room is set up to be a spacious and private second bedroom as the kitchen/dining room is a large open concept separate space. The outdoor living room is located in the back courtyard and is the access to the rooftop patio which has the most amazing combination of sea, city, and mountain views. You can see the islands of Mykonos and Tinos in the distance.
A short stroll (15 min) down the marble stairs and paths you will find yourself in the center of the city. The plaza boasting the parliament building, as well as a number of restaurants and cafes. It's the ideal location to sit, and relax as the Greeks do.
Past the plaza you will find local shopping, and the market, where you can find unique Greek items with many being made right in Greece. Syros is known as the "hub" for business of the Islands as it has the highest population of permanent residents.
On the other side of the plaza you will find the heart of the island, the Port. This busy stretch of road includes shops, restaurants, vendors, and even fishing boats selling their catch of the day.
The beach life in Syros is unparalleled. You can check out a different beach each day, from busy sandy beaches, to secluded bays, you will be able to find the beach that suites your taste.
There are many local attractions on the island such as Ano Syros (medieval town), large arts scene, water sports, agriculture, and magnificent churches.
