This studio made a perfect place to stay on Syros. It is a spacious, airy, stand-alone stone building, one large room furnished in a traditional style, and complete with a kitchen, small dining table, wardrobe and comfortable double bed. Everything necessary to prepare and eat simple meals at home is provided. The bathroom is basic but fully functional. The terrace, with shade trees and a view over farmland, made a lovely place to dine, or just to sit in the late afternoon and evening.
I appreciated the personal touches: fresh eggs from their chickens, herbs and potatoes from their garden, their own fig jam and their own olive oil. Terry also pointed me to a good rental car company, and met me at the port when I arrived.
Syros itself is an interesting island. I particular enjoyed my trip to the Ano Meria, the small villages and wild lands in the north.
Two practical points:
1. If you stay here, you will need a car. This is not a negative, in my opinion, as it would be a shame to come to Syros and see only Ermoupolis.
2. The drive from Ermoupolis to the farm is not too long (perhaps 20 minutes), but it winds about quite a bit. I arrived after dark and was quite appreciative that Terry met me at the port so I could follow him there in my rental car.
