The house is divided into two parts, separated by a courtyard. The main building has a master bedroom and en suite bathroom, a large kitchen, dining area, and living room. The annex has three guest rooms and two bathrooms.
We are Frances and George, an English and Greek couple who have made this Cylcadic island our second home for thirty years. We built the house following traditional Sifnian architecture, using locally-sourced materials.
Sifnos has long been a well-known secret of artists––and especially architects––who have been influenced by the Cubic structures of its inland villages, dotted like abstract cubes along the ridges of its inner valleys. It was an important island during the Classical period, when it had both gold and silver mines. One of its most impressive achievements was the Siphnian Treasury in Delphi.
If you are looking a vacation filled with extraordinary architecture, fine food and discreet bars playing excellent music, then Sifnos is your island. It does not have an airport, which has saved it from mass tourism.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
The villa has two buildings connected by a courtyard:
The Main Building is the master bedroom and en-suite bathroom, living room, guest WC, kitchen, and dining room. Please note: there are two single beds pushed together for this room, it is not a double bed.
The Annex has three guest rooms:
--A large room with a double bed and en-suite bathroom with a shower, and a small private patio overlooking the sea.
--A medium-sized room with two single beds set apart, with views of the sea and a small private patio. Guests share a bathroom with the single room.
--A single room with a single bed and an office desk. It has a small private patio overlooking the hills, and another window facing the inner courtyard.
We do not have A/C, as the evenings drop significantly in temperature on the islands, and there is always a pleasant cool breeze. For exceptional circumstances, all rooms have their own stand-alone fans. The master bedroom has a ceiling fan. For the winter months, we have electric heaters for each room.
All the rooms have mosquito screens, ample closet space, spare linen and towels.
We have two hot water boilers, one for each building.
