  • Excellent views to the sea

    Cynthia's review for Traditional House in Megas Gialos Syros

    We loved this place – it is a beautiful house with excellent views to the sea and great swimming options within five minutes walk. We found the house an excellent choice for two couples – there was plenty of room, with the large deck being our favourite eating space. Louis and Thanos were very helpful as we needed to hire a car and they sorted this out for us prior to arrival.

    The house is very clean and well appointed.

    Highly recommended.

    Σίγουρα θα ξαναπάμε! Tο σπίτι είναι πολύ όμορφο

    Εμείς ήμασταν τρία ζευγάρια με τρία μωρά, το σπίτι ήταν εξαιρετικό σε όλα τα επίπεδα, οι άνθρωποι μέχρι και παρκοκρέβατα μας είχαν, το σπίτι είναι πολύ όμορφο και μεγάλο με πολύ καλά στρώματα για ύπνο, σε πολύ ωραία τοποθεσία με θέα στη θάλασσα. Σίγουρα θα ξαναπάμε και μας άρεσε πολύ και το νησί!

    Directly accessed from lovely private terrace overlooking the sea.

    Directly accessed from lovely private terrace overlooking the sea. Spacious apartment, just completed, tastefully equipped and furnished. Good quality kitchen and appliances. Powerful air conditioning, limitless hot water. Everything you need for a relaxing stay in beautiful Kini. Located between main Kini beach and smaller Lotos beach. Minutes from either.

    The house was spacious and fully equipped. Amazing sandy beach

    natasa

    The house was spacious and fully equipped with lots of sun light. Υou don’t have the impression that is semi-basement at all. There are windows all over the place. Εven though the temperature outside was over 30 degrees , we didn’t used the air condition because inside it’s keeping a nice and fresh atmosphere … Very clean and nicely decorated , Thanos and Louis they were very kind and always available for our needs. There is a small beach (almost private ! not sandy beach) 20 meters away and a big sandy beach caribbean style 100 meters away that you can just stay there all day and go with the flip flops at home to bring some food and continue! Thank you guys for your amazing home and hospitality we really enjoyed and we will see you definitely soon !!

    A lovely place to stay in Syros

    Karsten

    A lovely place to stay in Syros. But please consider renting a vehicle. Megas Gialos is nice, but is also small. Thanos is a very friendly host who is always reachable, when needed. House is very clean and has an amazing view over the sea. Would always come back if my ways will touch Syros again.

    The sea view is enchanting

    vagelis

    The sea view is enchanting in a fantastic quiet location to enjoy the sea and the sun in peace. The house is very comfortable, beautifully decorated and fully equipped. We had a fantastic time. Thanos and Louis welcomed us at the port and helped us with a car rental and gave us very useful information about the island. We recommend it to everyone and especially to those who love the sea as it is next to the beach.

    Το σπίτι είναι πολύ όμορφο. Η αυλή καταπληκτική με υπέροχη θέα στη θάλασσα. Όλοι οι χώροι είναι καλαίσθητοι και εξαιρετικά καθαροί.

    Μείναμε με τα τα δυο μικρά παιδιά μας και αποδείχθηκε πολυ λειτουργικό μιας και διαθέτει όλες τις ανέσεις.

    Ευχαριστούμε τον Louis & Thanos για τη φιλοξενία.

    Love the house

    Lir's review

    Love the house! It is pretty much my dream home. 3 good size bedrooms, one ensuite and one extra bathroom. Glass fronted fireplace has been great for the winter stay. Huge light living area, plenty of sofa and table space – with the added bonus of having good television and playstation. Lovely kitchen with everything you need; huge fridge/freezer. Perfect patio with bougainvillea and view to sea, with great table, chairs and sun loungers. All built for comfortable living and lovely decor.

    Best place on this wonderful island

    Airbnb Review of Markus

    Wonderful place in a rural surrounding. Quiet and with perfect privacy. The house is perfectly located close to wonderful beaches with a stunning sea view. It is very clean and well equipped. 4 cats became our friends during our stay. We met Louis who’s showed us everything and who is so caring and willing to help. We really loved our stay and can recommend this place without my Limitation – best place on this wonderful island.

    Staying so close to the sea was wonderful

    Staying so close to the sea was wonderful.

    Staying so close to the sea was wonderful. The best sunrises that you can see. Worth getting up for. Take a coffee down to the little Marina and watch the sun rise. Such a beautiful place. Turn right out of the property and walk for 10 minutes and enjoy a spectacular bay that it very quiet and secluded. It was such a great place to stay and explore the other beaches of Syros. After a long hot day we would come back to the comfortable clean property and enjoy a glass of wine looking out over the sea and watch the moon rise. I throughly recommend a stay here.

    The house is very beautiful and well organized

    Louis was a very good host. Always kind and available if we had some issue (even during late evening). The house is very beautiful and well organized. Just a little advice regarding the possibility to increment the shadow on the terrace in the morning (especially on the table zone). Thank you again, it was a very very nice holiday in Syros!
