This house is let by my mother, but I am the one who will pick you up, show you around and be there for your assistance. So, this is me: I am a professional painter and I get my best ideas while running long distances in nature. A non smoker who appreciates everything that is fresh: air, fruit, vegetables, humor, ideas. TV usually disgusts me, so don't expect to find one in my house. I am a keen gardener and sailor. I believe one can learn everything one needs to know, in a garden and on a boat: do things slowly but on time, take the best out of things by not forcing them, find balance through flexibility, neither arrogance nor despair will help in a storm. I think I am privileged to live in a slice of paradise. I will be more than happy to share it with you if you are ready to appreciate and respect it. I am fluent in English, Italian and German and I can communicate in Spanish. If you wish to write in French, I will understand it but, if I am in a hurry, I will probably answer in English to you.

Very comfortable and great location
The house is very conveniently located, just five minutes walk from Finikas centre, where there's a well-stocked supermarket, wonderful bakery, and a choice of restaurants and tavernas (but note, no cashpoint!). We were also able to hire a car from the town, and then return it to the ferry port on our departure day, which was very helpful. Although the house is closer than we were expecting to other properties, being part of a small complex of four or five adjoining houses, it's away from the road and very quiet, enjoying views over both the countryside and Finikas Bay. The house is well-equipped - no dishwasher or microwave, which might be of concern to some, but not us - and very comfortable. Being the owner, Maria's, own home out of season, we benefited from staying in a very tastefully furnished house, decorated with some wonderful artwork, much of it done by Maria herself, so it really felt welcoming and homely. Maria was wonderfully accommodating and welcoming, helping with transport on our arrival day, advising on car booking and other local information, and generally making sure we had all we needed to enjoy our stay on the island. Syros is a wonderful island to visit and early May is a perfect time for those who want to avoid the peak season crowds, but still want good weather and a sea that is warm enough to swim in. There are plenty of lovely beaches to choose from - those who are willing to do a bit of walking to get there can be rewarded with having the whole beach to yourselves. All in all, we had a fabulous ten days and would definitely return to Syros for further recharging of our batteries!
Thank you Sian. It was great having you.
Yupi! Now we even have a cash point (ATM) next to the local supermarket. No need to go to Ermoupolis town any more for cash.
