Couldn't have picked a better place for my yoga retreat!
Everything was perfect: The location, close to everything we needed and high enough to offer sea view, peace and privacy.
The villa itself, a wonderful traditional mansion renovated with attention to each detail, very comfortable for a family, for couples or friends, with picturesque balconies, many private bathrooms and all necessary amenities. The rooftop offered breathtaking view of Hermoupolis and the sea, while the beautiful terrace of the house was where we took our meals and spent most of our time.
The meals were excellent, prepared with local ingredients from our hosts, very healthy and tasty!
The place was ideal for our yoga classes in the morning and afternoon, also for chilling in the evening.
Both our hosts were warm and helpful, eager to make us feel at home and give us the best tips about the island. Highly recommended!
The house is stunning, and Elisa and Kostas are perfect hosts. Elisa is also a wonderful chef (she regularly hosts cooking courses/retreats at the villa), and she prepared a festive meal for a friend's birthday with exquisite local delicacies. Warmly recommended!
We spent two weeks at Villa Maria and honestly we would have loved staying forever! The house is beautifull with a lot of character. The rooms are big and fresh, with huge ceilings. Beds are very confortable. We spent so much time relaxing on the quiet terrasses... Elisa and kostas are great hosts, quickly reacting in case you need something. We re already planning to come back!
This house is about as perfect as it gets. Comfortable and well equipped, direct access to a sunny terrace and in the town of Ermopolis with it's fine tavernas, shops and swimming platform. Great for eating out or cooking in. We loved every minute and if you like cooking Elisa is a font of knowledge and the cooking classes are great
Oh my god! I’ve just stayed in this wonderful house on Syros.
Old house full of character and amazing antiques.
Elisa & Kostas are fantastic hosts who can’t do enough for you.
We also combined our stay with a Greek cookery course with Elisa in the basement of the house which included amazing dinners after all the cooking!
Can’t praise this house enough!
Worth a visit
