How would you describe Villa Syros II in a nutshell?
Our house is both a little design project and a very practical and spacious family home. The uniqueness of Villa Syros II is its architecture, becoming one with the surroundings and melting with the nature. The heart of the property, the piazza is surrounded by olive, fig and pine trees as well as many beautifully scented Mediterranean herbs and bushes.

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 and automatic controlled humidity regulation, geothermal heating 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 adapted to the natural surroundings of the Kokkina mountain.

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.
