The house is located on the edge of Artemonas, a traditional and un-spoiled village that since the 1950's has been protected from further change by the Greek government. Whilst it's secluded and quiet, ensuring great privacy to the visitor, it also gives the opportunity to reach the 'tavernas' and 'kafeneia' (coffee shops) of the picturesque Artemonas, in less than a five-minute walk. In another ten minutes on foot or less than 1km by car is the center of the island, Apollonia, with bars, restaurants and small shops selling arts and crafts. The beaches of the island, such as Platis Yialos, Chrisopigi, Vathi and Faros, famous for their clear blue waters can also be reached in less than fifteen minutes by car or bus.

Why Nikos Zacharias chose Artemonas
Somewhat off the beaten track, Sifnos is an island for connoisseurs. (...) The island attracts its own pleasant crowd of regulars — artists and intellectuals, rather than party animals and beach bums - who appreciate the uniqueness of the island: its landscape, architecture, traditional vibe, pottery workshops and famously good food. Feel part of that crowd by staying in this glorious 19th-century neoclassical mansion in the hilltop village of Artemonas; it has been owned by the same family of ship owners, musicians, journalists and a theatre director for six generations. Don’t expect butlers, flat screen TVs, Jacuzzis or even ensuite bathrooms: this is the real thing. Prepare meals in the traditional kitchen (or walk to the local taverna), take in the views from the terrace, admire family heirlooms in the living room, and sleep on brass beds. The elegance of it is restrained; the charm, overwhelming. — Harper’s Bazaar, December 2009

Wie die Könige...
Ein tolles Haus, bis ins Detail liebevoll eingerichtet, geräumig, luftig. Auch an heißen Sommertagen findet sich immer ein angenehmes schattiges Plätzchen.
Auf der riesigen Terrasse mit Blick über die Landschaft haben wir uns wie Könige gefühlt.
Einziger Minuspunkte: An der Hauptstraße gelegen ist es nicht gerade ruhig, auch nachts nicht. Ohrenstöpsel für die Nacht einpacken!
