Psacharopoulos House is an authentic and historic holiday villa built during the middle of the 19th century.
How would you describe Villa Syros I in a nutshell?
It’s all about the view, which is magical. Situated on a secluded hill on the island of Syros, Greece, Villa Syros I is the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday with friends and family. The villa has 5 bedrooms and offers a stunning view of the Aegean Sea and the Cycladic islands, a modern yet welcoming design and an infinity pool with sun terraces that will invite you to spend the day in the beautiful sun.
The olive trees and several herbs such as lavender, rosemary, thyme and oregano will bring you totally down to another level of relaxation. Entering the house immediately gives you the feeling of entering a home away from home. The modern design, the raw materials and the stone washed fabrics will satisfy all your senses.
The house features several common areas such as a living room with open kitchen, an infinity pool with an adjacent Jacuzzi, a BBQ and lounge areas as well as several sundecks.
How would you describe the interior design and architecture?
The Cycladic architecture is the basis of the villa, integrated perfectly into the landscape. The interior design blends traditional handcraft based on chosen natural materials and high quality fabrics with modern reduced design. It is also equipped with state of the art technology such as a central under-floor cooling/heating system in all rooms, automatically controlled humidity regulation, a geothermal heat pump and photovoltaic panels.
The villa was built out of local natural materials with two main objectives: to provide an extraordinary housing experience and to give the feeling of being ecologically in tune with the natural surroundings of the Kokkina mountain.
How would you describe the atmosphere at Villa Syros I?
The villa is the perfect place to be when you seek relaxation. When you enter the main house you will face the two most beautiful Greek elements: an olive tree and the endless blue sea. The style of the house is really cosy with warm natural materials like wood and stone, which makes you feel closer to nature – but in a very stylish and modern way. The atmosphere calms you down and you feel the stress disappearing immediately when you enter the villa.
Who should stay at the villa and who should rather book something else?
The villa has been rented by a variety of guests in the past. It is the perfect spot for couples looking for a romantic getaway, for families that would like to spend quality time together in an environment of luxury, hospitality and comfort and for friends who want to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays or bachelor/ette parties.
Where are the closest supermarkets and how far away are some restaurants you would recommend?
The closest supermarket is in the village of Kokkina, a 2-3 mins drive from the villa. It also offers our guests to deliver the shopping to the villa at no extra costs. There is also a bakery and a butcher next to the supermarket, both the best on the island. And the fisherman of Kokkina provides us with fresh fish on a daily basis if requested. The village also has a pharmacy and some nice traditional restaurants.
Other restaurants are for example Ono, a beautiful new bar-restaurant right on the beach of Agathopes, 10 min from the villa, offering delicious sushi and traditional cuisine. In Ermoupolis, a 20 min drive, are a variety of nice shops, restaurants and bars to have a drink and enjoy the views such as Mazi (most beautiful garden restaurant of Syros) or Vaporia (great views of Emoupolis). In Ano Syros, the old part of town, are several picturesque cafés and restaurants. And in Kini is the highly recommended restaurant Allou gia Allou, all in white and next to the water.
