An introduction to Sifnos House

How would you describe Sifnos House in a nutshell?

Sifnos House is an ensemble of two little houses, which are embedded in the landscape, almost to the point of disappearing. One is whitewashed and the other is constructed from stone, and together they draw a space meeting the horizon. We are just above a little valley filled with colourful laurels in a place where the mountain meets the sea. 

What is the story behind Sifnos House, what was your inspiration to create it?

No one thought it was possible to build on this plot of land. It took a lot of perseverance, a few tricks and a dream. The peculiar shapes of these two houses are the consequence of the plot’s complex nature, with its rocks and terraces. In the end, the efforts were rewarded, with the ensemble blending so well into the landscape. 

How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of the house?

The interior exudes Mediterranean flair, with raw earth-plastered walls and terracotta floors. In addition to antique wooden furnishings, there is a green marble kitchen top and a white marble washbasin from the 1930s.

On the other hand, our practices and interests as an architect and an art director brought in contemporary art and original designer pieces from the 1950s. Many worlds come together to create a subtle blend that is unique to the Sifnos House. 

To you personally, what is so special about Sifnos House?

The house is completely embedded in a landscape of terraces and dry stone walls. It’s never imposing, giving you the feeling of belonging to the island, as if you were coming home.

The luxury of this place is probably the sound that inhabits it, from the deep silences to the chirping of birds and crickets. Sifnos House is reached via a road that is worthy of a 1950s Greek film and everything seems so far away.

For us, the house is a dream come true but also the formulation of a wish for the future: a simpler, more respectful way to live and travel, in harmony with nature.

The houses also have a large pergola ideal for your sport, yoga or meditation practice. It is a private space located on one of the terraces of our propriety, with sea view and surrounded by olive trees.

The beaches on Sifnos are simple, like they used to be in the past. There’s a handful of trees and a taverna run by a local family, with tables directly on the sand. Depending on the wind direction, one beach may be more appropriate than another.

One of our favourites is called Glypho and is 15 minutes by car from the house. It is well-preserved, the water’s crystalline and you’ll always find shade under the big tamarind trees. The village nearby, Faros, offers fine restaurants and a bakery.

My highlights are:

  • Bathing on the rocks of Kastro, followed by an aperitivo.

  • Ascending to Profit Ilias (the highest point on the island) for sunrise. Topped by a monastery, it is a 1.5 to 2-hour walk from the house and the view is unique.

  • Time it right and you can experience the traditional festivities in the island’s churches, in honour of their individual saints. The celebrations will transport you back to 1930, with songs and wine flowing all night long.

The location of Sifnos House

Sifnos House is located on the side of a small valley that is terraced with dry stone walls. In one direction, the views open out toward the sea while in the other, it overlooks several nearby villages.

A 20-minute walk through the fields brings you to the main village of Apollonia where you’ll find bars, restaurants and shops. The smaller village of Exámbela is 10 minutes walk away and has a café and a store, which delivers groceries on request. A bigger supermarket can be reached in 15 minutes while the main village is 20 minutes away.

On Sifnos, both the sea and the mountains are close by and easily reachable. The island has a large network of hiking paths with excellent indications, not to mention some of the best restaurants in the Cyclades. It has an authentic atmosphere. Not much has changed since the 1950s and there is minimal tourism infrastructure — it’s just enough while offering you the feeling that you’re alone in this world.

When is the best time to visit Sifnos?

We recommend July – August to get the most of the island's summer feelings!
