Retreat location

When Greek islands are mentioned, Santorini sunsets and Mykonos alleyways instantly come to mind – an exalted portrait of summer perfection. But for a slice of Greek bliss without the crowds, your best bet lies in Syros, the administrative capital of the Cyclades group and one of its smallest islands.

From the moment the ferry reaches the port, Syros reveals its resplendent pastel-hued villas cascading down the Ermoupoli hill and glistening in the Aegean sun. With a rich history and culture influenced by past rulers and boasting two towns – one Orthodox, the other Catholic – the sophisticated landscape of Syros offers many surprises.

Elegant Ermoupoli

Founded as an extension to the already existing Ano Syros settlement, Ermoupoli (or Hermoupolis) came into existence during the Greek War of Independence in the 1820s with the arrival of a wave of refugees from other Greek islands such as Chios, Psara, and Crete. The new dwellers transformed the town into a major trading center connecting the east to the west, contributing with their skills to the cultural boom that followed. Schools, printing presses, and museums rapidly emerged.

Thanks to the rise of the bourgeoisie and flourishing arts, the ‘City of Hermes’ (fittingly named after the Greek god of trade) grew its amphitheatrically set layout with neoclassical buildings, crayon-like mansions and striking churches. The monumental Town Hall on cafe-dotted Plateia Miaouli, the Apollo Theatre, and the blue-domed Agios Nikolaos Church stand out as its most iconic sights.

Food

Daily brunch is included in the price. Furthermore, the villa is a walking distance to several local restaurants and shops. Some of the rooms have a small kitchen, so there is no need to eat in a restaurant twice a day.
