Traditional Little Family House in Private Vineyard

Bedrooms 2
Space 699 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

This recently renovated, lovely small traditional house, located in a 700 m2 private vineyard, is fully furnished and equipped. The property, situated outside the picturesque village of Apollonia on Sifnos Island, offers absolute calm & relaxation. This perfect location combines privacy, peace and a panoramic view of the nearby villages and the Aegean Sea, yet is only 5 minutes away from the center of Apollonia with its shops, restaurants, supermarket etc. An ideal spot for family holidays!


Built of traditional stone, the house stays cool all summer. It has two sleeping areas, which can accommodate a total of 5 persons: A large room contains a set of bunk beds and a single bed, while a smaller room contains a large double bed. There is also a living room with an open plan kitchenette and a bathroom with shower. The house is equipped with all the necessary kitchen and dishware (of traditional local pottery), cutlery, towels, bed and table linens, etc.


There is a large paved terrace at the front of the house, complete with vine-draped pergola and a beautiful view of the Aegean and the villages of Artemonas and Kato Petali; to the side, a spacious, shady courtyard is perfect for breakfast or just lying in the hammock. The 700 sq.m. vineyard also contains oleanders, myrtles and jasmine, olive, pomegranate and almond trees, and a fig tree with delicious figs, just begging to be picked. Bay, basil, geranium and rosemary plants perfume the air and add color to the courtyard.


Although Sifnos is one of the most beautiful islands of the Cyclades, it has yet to be discovered by tourists. Its many picturesque villages, monasteries, hiking paths and clear water beaches are very well known in Greece. The island is also famous for its traditional pottery and delicious food. Apollonia, its capital, has lost nothing of its traditional charm. You are just five minutes away from many shops selling local jewelry and pottery, as well as clothing and home furnishing. The town also offers restaurants serving regional or broadly ‘Mediterranean’ food, and a great nightlife with a full range of cafes, bars and clubs.

Kastro with its breathtaking views and Artemonas with its beautiful traditional architecture are two villages well worth visiting. The monasteries of Profitis Ilias and Aghios Simeon offer a panoramic view of the whole island from above. The famous monastery of Chrissopigi, built on a rock by the sea, is another must! You can swim in the crystal clear waters of the sandy beach of Apokofto, next to Chrissopigi, or visit Platy Yialos, Vathi, and Fasolou. Afterwards, lunch at any of the local tavernas found on every beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Back to Sifnos! (still) in the same place! 4 years later!

Mais toujours avec le même plaisir! (d’ailleurs, il y a de plus en plus de français à Sifnos…)

La maison est toujours aussi belle, l’ile toujours magnifique, les plages splendides et les sentiers de randonnée magnifiques aussi… (sentier Apollonia – Vathy à recommander!)

On se régale toujours autant des calamars grillés, des salades grecques, des « cheese-balls » ou de l’octopus en sauce ou grillé!

Encore 10 jours de rêve loin des traces du monde!

Sûrement, nous reviendrons encore…

For sure, we will be back!

Merci encore pour tout!

Île de Sifnos est très agréable beaux paysages belles plages et bonnes tavernes

  • 5 of 5

Le logement a un grand jardin agréable avec terrasse ombragée et deux coins repas

Balle vue sur la mer. Le logement est situé à 5-10 min du centre d'appolonia principal bourg de l'iles . On y a passé un agréable moment . La maison est authentique rustique sans climatisation ce qui n'était pas nécessaire - donc à recommander

Belle localisation, confort moyen

  • 3 of 5

La Maison est idéalement située dans le haut d appollonia. La vue est chouette mais la maison n est pas si isolée que ce que l on peut penser. Concernant la salle de bain, c est tres spartiate, Nous avons passé un très bon séjour malgré cela.

Très agréable et charmante maison traditionnelle très bien située

  • 5 of 5

Avec nos deux jeunes enfants, nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette charmante maison traditionnelle qui contient tout le nécessaire pour nous permettre de profiter des vacances et dont la description correspond parfaitement à ce que nous avons trouvé.

Les deux terrasses et le jardin avec notamment ses figuiers nous ont offert de très agréables moments de détente avec vue sur la mer au loin.

La propriétaire et ses amies ont toujours été à notre disposition pour nous aider et nous conseiller judicieusement.

Cette maison bien entretenue est en outre très bien situé à Katavati au calme et proche des commerces et restaurants ; un escalier tout proche permet de descendre au centre d'Apollonia en moins de 5 minutes.

A noter également la présence d'un parking à proximité de la maison.

La situation centrale de la maison sur l'île en permet la découverte assez aisément et de relier rapidement toutes les plages.

Nous recommandons vivement cette location et mourrons d'impatience d'y retourner.
