The most beautiful experience

From the trips I have made in Greece, Sifnos gave me the most beautiful experience. I stayed in Apollonia, the capital where all the taverns, bars and coffee houses are. Anyone who has not yet visited the island, has no excuse because it is only 5 hours from Athens and it has it all, beautiful beaches, great nightlife, food for all tastes, villages for short excursions, interesting routes and historical settlements with a splendid atmosphere.

Once you are in Sifnos, it is a pity not to explore at least the places close to you. Imagine that only a short breath away from the center is the gorgeous Kastro, the medieval settlement of Sifnos with the castle and the beautiful houses that surround it from the top to the bottom of the hill. A stroll around the romantic streets of Kastro is surely unpredictable, as you go there are some amazing bars sitting right at the edge of the cliff with a fantastic view to the sea.

One of the most picturesque places to visit is Chrysopigi, first of all you will love the crystalline and calm waters of the beach, a couple of taverns there make the area even more interesting, I ate the best fried pumpkin balls there and then you should not miss a visit at the monastery. There are many hotels in Sifnos but I prefer the rental rooms which are much cheaper and you will find some in great locations.

We booked here for five nights in and ended up staying for eleven. Absolute heaven,so peaceful and the view is breathtaking. The owner is so friendly and her home made fried chick pea balls are amazing.

We will be back.

My holidays in Sifnos have been a quite memorable experience. Not only for the natural beauty of this Cycladic island, but also for the warm hospitality and the quality of people. We stayed in one of the best rental apartments in Apollonia, the capital of Sifnos, quite strange for our last minute booking.

We didn't get to see much on the first day but the following days we really had the greatest time. In six days, we managed to see the biggest part of Sifnos, its lovely villages like Artemonas, Platis Gialos with the fantastic beach, Katavati which is located in the highest point of the island and Faros.

Still, I haven't mentioned the best settlements in Sifnos. Hrysopigi is one of the most graphic villages with the well-known church standing at the top of a rock and surrounded by the crystal clear waters. This church is worth visiting, built in 1650. The beach is located there and the best traditional tavern to find around the island.

Herronissos is another village that we visited, probably the only one that takes a 40-minute drive to reach. Still, it was an interesting route with great views to the sea. This small village receives many people mostly for its pristine beach with the green waters. Though the beach has a limited space, it is worth finding at least a spot to place your things and dive.

Sifnos is popular for its countless churches, so don't miss the church of Agios Panteleimonas located near the beach. I saved the best for last which is Kastro, a village built on top of the remains of the ancient town of the island. As soon as you enter Kastro, you are dazzled by its beautiful architecture and its medieval atmosphere. The church of Virgin Eleoussa is built upon a huge rock in the heart of the sea. You need to climb down many steps in order to take a closer look. Kastro will definitely be a place to return to some day.

The place I met the mother of my sons

I stayed there on summer of 1995 with my friends. One morning Mr. Aris was arguing with some beautiful girls about making noise and that they shouldn't wait for the bus there but on the other side of the road. We heard the noise and we wake up. One of them became my wife, and the mother of my sons!

Six years after we came back (with my wife) and we loved the place once more!

Thanks

The days we spent in Aglaia Studios at the end of May 2011 were beautiful, relaxing, perfect! The place is rich of natural beauty, just in front of the sea, the rooms are clean, comfortable and nicely decorated, the owners are special and make you feel at home. The view of the sunset from the rooms is magic!
We hope to come back soon!

Ευχαριστώ πολί, γεια σασ και καλό καλοκαίρι!

Cristina and Fabrizio (and friends)

I stayed at Aglaia Studios in June 2004, I was looking for a quiet, secluded, peaceful place by the sea and I found it! It was a fantastic place to stay and relax. I have longed to go back since 2004 and hope to get back there this August. It really is the only place to stay in Sifnos!

We stayed in a pretty pension on the outskirts of Kamares, run by an elderly woman who was hospitality personified. The room was average, but we didn't actually care because all day we were out. Every morning, we used to have a lavish breakfast of fresh orange juice, toast, eggs and coffee in a lovely place, a short walk from the pension.

Kamares Beach is just beyond the port and it is the one you get to see when you arrive at the port. But we didn't want to swim next to ferries, so we took the bus and went to some wonderful beaches on the southern side of Sifnos. Bus itineraries are good and frequente, depending on the daytime they can be a bit late. For example, midday buses are usually 10-15 minutes late but morning buses are on time.

Chrissopigi and Platis Gialos are two wonderful beaches with very clean water. Platis Gialos is a bit more organized than other beaches and has some lovely taverns along the shore. Hersonissos is also a nice beach but gets busy all day long (but this is not bad for all people!).

Food in Sifnos is great and fresh, after all I heard that the greatest chef in Greece originated from Sifnos. Also there is a Cooking Festival every September there but sadly we left a week before the festival.

There are not impressive sights in Sifnos but you will enjoy the beaches and love the villages. Kastro is the loveliest village but Artemon and Apollonia is also very picturesque to walk. Kastro has some amazing cafeterias, you will find them on your way in the paths and will surely love the view!

We first stopped in Sifnos in 1994. Since then we have returned every 2 years and have made life long friends. We have seen many changes in the life of the people and the countryside is now being developed as the fast ferries bring more tourists from Athens, but it is still a special place with great beaches. Maria, Angelo and sample her coconut cake with ouzo!! Still an quiet seaside little resort with a hourly bus service, great for children, nice tavernas and a little shop for self catering.
