Eleni Karantza purchased this Villa in 2006

Exceeded all expectations - wonderful
The photographs do not do justice to this beautiful house. It is extremely comfortable and the rooms are set out in such a way that 10 people/ 2 families can holiday together with plenty of space and privacy. It is the perfect location - peaceful and yet easy walking distance down the steps to the buzzing centre Apollonia where there are wonderful bars and restaurants- Jewellry, pottery and clothes shops. There are also plenty of food shops in easy walking distance. We hired a car and explored most beaches on the island. I’ve stayed in Sifnos several times before but not for twenty years it is even better than I remember.
Konstantinos the owner was very helpful and communication was extremely easy.
We also engaged the wonderful Luciana and her daughter Daphne to come in a few times a week for housekeeping they were very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this house and hope to return.
Beautiful and peaceful location to gather family or friends in the heart of incredible hiking trails
Konstantinos is an attentive host, readily available to assist before, during, and after your visit. This beautiful Sifnos home was able to comfortably hold our 3 couples with room for more if needed. We loved the building style and decor and took a number of pictures to help us duplicate the comfortable features in our summer places back home. The outdoor space was well used, including the charcoal barbecue. The trails on Sifnos are incredibly well marked and close to the front door. I know that others have warned us to say that Sifnos is terrible because it is truly a treasure and a secret destination of many island seekers. Oops...Sifnos and this home were highlights of our Grecian journey.
wonderful house in a super peaceful and scenic location close to Apollonia.
Very accommodating owners and a spacious and beautifully designed and decorated house.
Excellent summer house, in perfect condition. We'd love to visit again in the future.
Perfect house for vacation retreat
The house is light and bright and spacious with a large terrazza and grounds outside with two large dining tables - flowers galore - beauitful white everywhere but the house is comfortable not formal -tastefully decorated everywhere - comfortable beds - there were 5 of us and everyone had their own room - lots of windows and tons of fresh air - my favorite thing was to wake up early in the morning and hear the animals on the island waking up in the mountains that surround the house -- beaches and towns are all minutes away and easy to get to - we loved our week in Sifnos - wished we could have stayed longer.

Thank you Jeri for the wonderful review.
We are really glad that you had such a wonderful time in Sifnos. Hope to see you and your friends next year!
A perfect holiday destination!
Sifnos is just a perfect holiday destination...
.. and the house of Eleni & Konstantinos is a « little paradise »!
The house and the garden correspond perfectly to the description and the photos provided through the website. This is an amazing villa, lovingly decorated. It is roomy, with lots of storage space. The garden and its landscaped terraces are very pleasant.
The whole property was perfectly cleaned when we arrived and a cleaning service is available if needed.
We had only network contacts with Eleni and Constantinos (by email or by phone); by the way they have always been available for us and we really appreciated our exchanges.
The location is also perfect because it is very close from Apolonnia, even on foot. Food markets and many attractions are available near the house and very nice walks are possible, directly from the village.
We would absolutely recommend this property to our friends; the house is just perfect for 1 or even 2 families.
Snowy-white houses with traditional chimneys made of potter’s clay and small churches with blue domes, built on green hills, which lead to sandy beaches. This is Sifnos, the gem of Cyclades. The capital of Sifnos is Apollonia since 1836, which is also called Stavri and which is sprawling out amphitheatrically along three hills in the center of Sifnos. At the west there is the port, Kamares. To the north of Apollonia there is Artemonas, a jewel of Sifnos with mansions of neoclassical style, with gardens and yards full of flowers, while to the east, Kastro (the ancient capital) will fascinate you with its architecture! To the south Katavati is a quiet neighborhood at end of the long narrow sidewalk running throught Apollonia.
Other beautiful coastal summer resorts in Sifnos are Platis Gialos, Faros, Chrissopigi, Vathi, Kastro and Cheronissos.
