“When we were approached with an opportunity for an exchange on a Greek Island we immediately adjusted our travel plans to include a small detour to this slice of paradise. When we show our friends the photographs they can not believe our luck. We had the pleasure of staying in Edna's wonderful house for three weeks and found it to be the perfect relaxing way to start our annual trip to the Northern Hemisphere. A classic house of typical island style complete with white walls, blue shutters and mandatory bougainvillea looking over a 270 degree view directly to the Mediterranean. A short walk both ways to a beach and cantina or to the bus that travels each half hour around the island. Easy access to supermarkets for necessities. Who could want for more. The house is comfortable and beautifully decorated with memorabilia reflecting Edna's career and great sense of style. Edna was very welcoming and the attention to detail evident in her house manual was a great help with many tips to help the tourist find both necessities and items of interest. Thank you Edna and warmest regards Chris and Barbara”
Where is it?
Near a country village, with its own access road. Easy walk to close-by village shops and tavernas.
Bus stop 5 minutes away, with very frequent service all over the island. Ermoupolis, the main town, is the capital of the Cyclades, so all services are available.
Hospital, law courts, airport, seaport, travel agencies, boat and car hire.
There are three supermarkets (which will deliver groceries if the order is larger than 50e), including a French one.
Island settled by Crusaders in 1207, after 4th Crusade. Ano Syros, above Ermoupolis, their settlement, still exists as it was then, lived in, with shops and lively tavernas. City center is classé, a Neoclassical historical site, famous in Greek history. Ancient ruins, even 5000 years old. Excellent tavernas, town and country.
