SUMMER DREAM HOUSE IN GANEMA BAY SERIFOS, CYCLADES GREECE

Serifos House Rental Photos and Description

300metres by The Sea, Splendid Full Bay Sea View, Ideal Balcony, Long Chairs

A dreamy stone made summerhouse with olive green woodwork, in the magnificent (and awarded) sandy bay of Ganema, in Serifos island. The house located just 300m away from the beach, in a complex of 4 houses built in 2010, local architectural line. Facing the sea it is an ideal place to stay and enjoy the magic of Greek waters, sun and meltemi wind. A big bamboo roofed balcony has all the great view, where you can dine or relax on a long chair or a swing and enjoy the sea view in the morning, the romantic sunset in the afternoon and the star bright moonlit sky at night. Accommodation: One bedroom with double bed (140 cm), one bedroom with two single beds, two bathrooms may comfortably host four persons. On the upper floor, a salon with a sofa facing the sea, next to the equipped kitchen. A washing machine and air conditioning complete the utilities. The house is available April-October for seasonal or weekly stay excluding August 1-15th when we usually host friends and relatives.

Serifos is one of the prettiest and still unspoiled islands of the Aegean full of sun and wind and many crystal blue sandy beaches, barren rocky scenery, a truly picturesque capital, a range of night life activities but all at very peaceful levels of tourism since it has traditionally been a family island. Ganema is the largest beach of Serifos on the south of the island, in between Koutalas bay and Vagia bay. The beach is unique in that it is made from big pebbles on the one side followed by sand and ending to thin sand covering any kind of beach you may have dreamed of. Serifos is just 2.5hs from Athens by Ferry still keeping its lively secluded atmosphere. The Port is just 8 km away from Ganema. A few yachts elect this as a night stay. A very famous Greek ship owner has selected Ganema for his summerhouse too.

About Takis

I have owned and ran an advertising agency in Athens for many years. During my summer vacations, I ve sailed nearly all the Aegean with my sail boat trying to pick the best site for a dream summer house that would match my aesthetics and style. This dream came true a few years ago when we decided to buy 2 houses in Ganema Serifos. One of them we decided to rent.

Takis purchased this house in 2010

Why Takis chose Serifos

Serifos is a classy, rather family-island, away from wild tourism extremes but just 2.45hrs from Athens, the first boat stop from Piraeus port. Ganema has been my favorite beach being the largest (about 1km long) and one of the quietest beaches, pleasant at any weather condition, well and uniquely covered from strong northern winds typical during summer. The house is a short and pleasant walk, so near the beach, so you can enjoy the sun or a dive anytime of the day, being even alone early in the morning or enjoying the sunset in the afternoon.

The moment we saw the view from the balcony we said 'that's it!. This will be our house! Usually there are other kids around in the neighboring houses our kids play with and share memorable summer experiences close to the sea nature. There are great trail walking routes for those who are more fit.After crossing a few hills lead you to Chora. There is a small beach tavern that usually operates during summer, where own garden salads are served with great local specialties!... Ideal for lunch with a cool beer after the swim.Worth mentioning there is a bus stop to Chora right off the house complex.

What makes this house unique

The breathtaking sandy beach is just 300m away, crystal clear blue waters to swim. The view is magnificent from the large relaxing balcony, quiet and away from any noise. Still it's just 10 mins drive both from the port(Livadi) and Chora the mountain capital. Relaxing at my hammock or armchair, enjoying dinner under the bamboo roofed balcony is so cool and refreshing from the warm sun. In case you get too hot there is an air conditioning in every room to cool you down. At night it all turns romantic listening to the sound of breaking sea waves and watching the starlight skies under candle lights... What more can you ask for?

Unbelievable Stay in Ganema bay

  • 5 of 5
Staying at Takis' beautiful house in Ganema Bay for 11 days was simply incredible. There are so many things that made the stay special I don't know where to begin. First, the view from the balcony is superb and I cannot recall having as nice a view anywhere I have ever stayed. The house is on the south side of Serifos Island which is sheltered from the northern winds and the area has the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen, even in Greece. Ganema Bay, which is a short walk down from the house, is calm, shady and perfect for small children. Vagia beach, which is just a few minutes down the road, in my opinion, was even more spectacular and ranks as probably one of the best beaches I have ever visited. Further down the road is Psili Amos, voted one of the best beaches in Europe and my wife's personal favorite.

The house is very tastefully decorated and has all the amenities you need, including good hot water, air condition, kitchen supplies and utensils, tv with dvd player. But it is the balcony that is the star of the show, the vibe during each period of day, whether morning, noon or night, is serene, beautiful and perfectly relaxing. Dining on the balcony with family is wonderful.

Serifos is a gorgeous little island. Besides the beaches, the Chora is stunning and has some stylish and excellent tavernas in the main square, especially Sou Stratou. The port town of Livadi has a number of good restaurants, including Meli cafe, which was a great hangout for us and our kids for breakfast or a post-dinner ice cream (and World Cup watching). Be sure to get fresh Bougatsa pastries in the morning from the local bakery near the rental car company.

Despite all this, what really sets this house apart from everywhere else I have stayed is the fact that Takis' is an exemplary host. He was responsive and did everything possible to make our stay as wonderful as possible. He showed us a couple of secrets to the island that blew us away (I won't give them away). He provided toys for our kids to play with, even snorkelled and found a beautiful starfish for them. He could not have been a better host. Thanks Takis for making our stay even more special!

Takis and his wife were incredible and this is the perfect place to stay for a relaxing beach holiday. We asked for a travel cot as we are a couple with a young child and on arrival not only did they have a cot, as well as all the baby toys we could ask for, but they had also bought lots of kid friendly beach toys and even a pop up beach tent to protect our little one from the sun. Leading up to our trip Takis was also very quick to reply to all of your questions and was very helpful (really above and beyond what we had expected). The location of the house is phenomenal. We have come to believe Ganema bay is easily one of the best beaches on the island (with a great tavern in easy walking distance) and it was the perfect place for a relaxing holiday with mornings spent on the porch overlooking the ocean, days on the beach and then evenings with a cold beer back on the porch (with the little one we are a bit tied to the house). The accommodations were faultless with everything we needed to make ourselves at home. While there are so many islands to see we have already decided we will be repeat customers.

Amazing view, relaxing stay, great hosts

  • 5 of 5
The first time we visited beautiful Serifos a couple of years ago, we fell in love with Ganema bay. We were then staying in Livadi and we wished we could find accommodation close to Ganema. This year we did! We were lucky to discover this elegant house overlooking Ganema Bay and only 5 minutes walk from the beach.

The view from the house is beautiful.
The house is on two levels with bedrooms downstairs. Both levels have a bathroom which is really convenient. The house is decorated simply and elegantly and is super clean...and the owners Takis and Mika are fantastic hosts, very welcoming and friendly but not intrusive.

We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be coming back.

GANEMA

Ganema is the largest bay of Serifos looking south to the Aegean about 1km long, adjacent to Vagia bay and Koutalas bay. It is about 8kms from the port can be reached by paved road by car (10mins) or local bus. A small fine tavern operates in the summer by the beach and one at 400m distance from the house . The bay is the best protected by northern summer winds. Famous Greek ship owner has selected Ganema for his summer house. Serifos is one of the rising Cyclades islands. It is still ideal for relaxation as you can still find many sandy beaches and a powerful but rather family friendly night-life. Check out these pic links:
