An introduction to Villa Nectar

What is the story behind Villa Nectar, what was your inspiration to create it?

Although there are many islands in Greece, we have always loved the Cyclades and wanted to buy a house somewhere there. We prefer islands that are more natural, unspoiled and not too touristic, so we chose Serifos. When we arrived at Villa Nectar, we said “yes” immediately — the view was just incredible!

How would you describe the atmosphere and interior design of Villa Nectar?

When we purchased the house, it was for the view alone, not the interior design. We completely changed it with the help of a young, talented architect named Georgia Nikolopoulou who works with Block722. One of the architectural firm’s founders is a close friend of ours and she suggested the collaboration with Georgia. 

We wanted something simple, with natural colours and a warm, calming aesthetic. And this is exactly what we achieved. We call Villa Nectar "our little paradise" because it makes you feel relaxed and far away from everything.

To you personally, what is so special about Villa Nectar?

While we love Villa Nectar's traditional Cycladic architecture as it has been combined with modern elements, we think it is the view and the whole atmosphere that sets it apart. It’s also a bit of a hideaway — aside from the house next door, it feels very isolated. There are views from every corner of the house and beautiful beaches within a few minutes' drive. 

We also like that there are different levels and areas, so you can always find a corner of privacy. For me, it’s important to have 10 minutes alone during the day and at Villa Nectar, it’s easy to do this, even when staying with family and friends. 

And what do you particularly like about this part of the Cyclades

Serifos is unspoiled, calm, authentic with a wild beauty and numerous stunning beaches. This is what makes Serifos amazingly beautiful and unique.

Villa Nectar rooms & rates

Villa Nectar is set across two levels, with the main door leading to the open plan living and kitchen area, from where you immediately have incredible views. The living area has a built-in sofa but there is purposely not a lot of furniture, which adds to the villa’s relaxing feel. There is also a round table where you can eat inside if it’s windy outside and a fully-equipped kitchen designed with white and grey tones and natural elements.  

There are two bedrooms on the upper level. Both have sea views: one has a balcony and an external shower/WC, the other one has an ensuite bathroom with a window to the sea-facing side and an opening to a little patio at the back of the house. A few steps lead down to the lower level to the other two bedrooms, which have small windows below the ceiling and lots of daylight but no sea views. They share one bathroom and there is also a small storage room where we keep linen, beach towels and a washing machine. 

An external terrace surrounds the villa and there is a small table at the back. In front of the villa is a big wooden table where we have most meals and a few steps connect down to the swimming pool. Here you’ll find a built-in sofa where you can have an aperitif, read a book, or watch the sunset while on the other side of the pool is a sunbed area with loungers and an outdoor shower. Planted around the property are Mediterranean species that are native to the Cyclades.

Things to do in Cyclades & Serifos

  • Hiking
  • Scuba diving
  • Boat trips

Serifos has a total of 72 beaches, several of which are within a few minutes drive of Villa Nectar. You can go to Kalo Ampeli Beach, Vagia Beach or Ganema Beach (one of the longest stretches of sand on the island) or head a little further away to the famous beach at Psili Ammos (but only go if it’s not windy!).

Serifos also has lots of walking paths to explore and I would recommend visiting Hora, which is very beautiful with its whitewashed houses and small shops. The island’s mining history is also interesting, with the former mining site at Megalo Livadi the best place to go. Serifos has a great ceramic tradition, so a visit to the ceramic shop close to Chora is also a must.

Villa Nectar reviews

5 of 5 stars
Verfied Welcome Beyond stay
Wonderful property, great views and the best sunset. All very nicely furnished and the garden around the house well maintained and diverse. The kids loved the pool. We had the best summer vacation with our family.

The location of Villa Nectar

Serifos is around two hours by fast ferry from Piraeus or 4.5 hours by regular boat. There are services every day during the summer months. You can easily rent a car to pick up at the port of Livadi, although it’s highly recommended that you book ahead. While there are buses and taxis on the island, there aren’t so many and having a car is the best way to get around.

Villa Nectar is 12 minutes’ drive from the main port of Livadi and around 20 minutes from historic Hora, with a back road that leads through a totally natural landscape. We are in the southern part of Serifos, which, to me, is the nicest part of the island and less windy than the north.

In Livadi, you’ll find supermarkets, an ATM and small shops, as well as plenty of bars and restaurants. Closer to the villa are a few tavernas that are only open during the day and there is a luxury resort nearby, Eco-Mart, where guests can make reservations for dinner.

When is the best time to visit Cyclades?

May and June are both very nice as it’s not too windy and there aren’t so many people on the island. From mid-July to August it can get very windy before things calm down again by September. Even if you visit at the height of the peak season in August, you’ll never arrive on a crowded beach because there are just so many to choose from!
