Recent Sifnos reviews

  • Beautiful Place

    "There's something truly magical about Sifnos, and the Thimonia is the perfect place to stay. I will definitely rent this house again. I came to Sifnos for a writing retreat and stayed at the Thimonia for the month of May. It is a beautiful house with many amenities. It has all the comforts of home in a gorgeous location. The beds are firm, the kitchen is well stocked and the bathroom has a gigantic bathtub (which you will not find in most hotels)! I recommend it for up to three people. The master bedroom has a double bed (a bit too cozy for two adults, in my view, but I require a lot of room when I sleep!) The couches serve as very comfortable twin beds. Mosquito netting is provided around the bed, and it is necessary in summer. I would recommend that anyone sleeping on the couches have netting as well (I think there was one extra mosquito net in the closet). The house is situated on a ridge with a view to the north east, so there is always a nice breeze. The landscaping is beautiful. There are many places to sit outside and take in the breathtaking view of the sea and surrounding villages. Every morning I watched the sun rise over Paros, and spent the day writing at the large wood desk in front of a window facing the sea. In the evening I sat outside with my ouzo, olives, and meze, breathing in the intoxicating fragrances of thyme, rosemary, oregano, fennel, lavender and roses that grow all over the island. The lovely garden at the Thimonia provides herbs and apricots in season for the daily meal. Exabela is a pedestrian-only village. During my time at the house I never heard one car or siren or airplane--only the sound of tinkling goat bells, roosters, birds, and farmers at work in their fields. I cooked at home most days, but there are lots of lovely restaurants and tavernas that serve traditional Greek food grown locally. The villages are small and charming. Even the port, Kamares, has a clean, sandy beach and great restaurants along one small main strip. (The Old Captain's Bar, run by Kelly, Tony, and Leftheres, is a fantastic place to have a drink at sunset.) Sifnos is very manageable for visitors without a car. There are buses seven days a week, but I walked everywhere. The island offers many groomed hiking trails that wind through the gorges and up into the mountains to beautiful churches and monasteries. Three grocers are just up the street from the house and the capitol, Apollonia, is only a 15 min. walk."
