Description

Standing starkly white against the impossibly blue sky on top of a hill, this luxury villa on the island of Sifnos is the stuff postcards are made of. Once the noble residence of an aristocrat, this villa is in a class of its own and is seeped in history.

Step through the arched iron gate and you’ll find that everything inside this very special residence is equally stunning. Everywhere you look there is something beautiful and unique to catch your eye, from quirky pieces of wall art, to antique furniture to splashes of deep colour in the décor.

Surrounding the house are wide terraces, some sun traps to lounge in, others shaded seating areas where you can enjoy morning coffee with your ocean view. In the evenings, relax in the barbecue area after your meal and watch the sun set over the sea – it’s a magical spot.

Life here is all about lazy days and long evenings. In the cool of the house, there are lots of spots to chill out with a book and a long, cool drink. The living rooms are all eclectically decorated to feel like a real home from home, and the bedrooms are light and airy – ideal for an afternoon siesta. If you feel up to a little more action, head down to the infinity  swimming pool, with sea views and water gym equipment, so you can feel like you’ve really earned that first glass of wine later!

To ensure a completely relaxing experience, everything is taken care of for you here by a team of dedicated staff. Whether you want help entertaining the children, exciting excursions booking, a delivery of gourmet food and wine or a long, luxurious massage, they’ve got it all covered for you. There’s nothing more for you to do than throw yourself fully and lazily into island life.

Eating

Sifnos is the foodie capital of the Greek Islands and gourmands will be spoilt for choice here. Some of our favourite eating spots include Simos, in a lovely spot on the waterfront at Kamares and specialising in seafood mezedes and traditional Sifnos dishes. Much of its produce is home-grown. Fans of fish will also enjoy Omega 3, a fish bar on the beach at Platis Gianos.

For a memorable traditional meal with a twist head to Rabagas, part of the ‘Cycladic Space’ in Apollonia. Apollonia is also home to a whole host of other restaurants, from coffee ad meze shops to pizza parlours, so it’s a great spot to find something everyone will enjoy.

If you wish, you can instead hire a private chef to serve meals in the privacy of your luxury villa.

Kids

This is a great villa for families. Children will love the huge swimming pool and there’s plenty of space both inside and out to run round in.

One of the bedrooms has a mezzanine level that sleeps a further two people, making it ideal for a family. And for those travelling with ‘grown-up children’, several bedrooms have independent entrances so they won’t wake you up when they come in late.

Babysitters can be arranged on request.
