This family home is my getaway – a perfect place for peace and quiet and relaxing days at the beach with my children and grandchildren. When not on the island, I’d love for you too to be able to take in its and Serifos’ resourcing beauty.
An independent, 90m2 house on three levels, it has three bedrooms (2 with double beds and 1 with two single beds). There is an open kitchen with all of the cooking utensils necessary for lovely meals to be shared on the private, outdoor terrace that has 180-degree views of the sea and Agios Ioannis bay. For bbq lovers there’s a plancha and for wine lovers, a wine fridge.
Outside, there’s a great outdoor shower perfect for cooling off after a fun beach day. Inside, there are also two tiled bathrooms with showers.
Inside, most of the furniture is marble and steel – sleek lines to go well with the pure Cycladic style. But there are also comfortable couches and chairs to lounge the days away in.
There is a television with a DVD player and sound system, but there is no landline or Internet. If your cell is compatible with Greek providers there is 3G from the house.
The house does not have air conditioning but remains quite cool and every room has a ceiling fan and screens on the windows.
Other amenities: a washing machine, coffee maker, stove but no oven, fridge, wine fridge, blender etc. I provide sheets and towels.
The outdoor tub/mini-pool:
You cannot swim in for it is too small and shallow, but it is a lovely place to sit and look out at the sea on a hot day or after a long afternoon at the beach. To be used at your own risk and please do not leave children unsupervised in the tub.
Where are we?
Located just above Agios Ioannis beach, it takes about 10 minutes to walk to the beach from our house, or a 2-minute drive. We are also a 4-minute drive to Psilli Ammos, named one of the world’s top beaches. If you seek what are the best beaches on the island, with the finest sand, you want to be in this area, on this side of the island.
This house is in a quiet area. While there are three other houses behind it, you feel like you are the only one looking out at the bay. Because we are located outside of town (4.7 kilometers or a 10 minute drive), a car is highly recommended and there is private parking for your vehicle.
In Livadi town, you’ll find supermarkets, restaurants, port ferries.
What do we love most about Serifos?
It’s quiet. It has a ton of incredible beaches to choose from. It’s big enough to keep exploring without feeling trapped. It has two towns to choose from – sunset cocktails in Chora and relaxing breakfasts in Livadi…Also, we are just a two hour speed ferry ride from Athens, making Serifos one of the closest, but still low key islands of the Cyclades.
