Chroussa is a village situated in the centre of the island. Its farms are built in traditional style and are typical of this kind of architecture in Syros. One also finds some surprisingly grand country houses in neoclassical style, dating from the 19th century and screened from the road by pine groves. Amazingly green gardens thrive in the shade of these tree.

You can enjoy walking around the village of Chroussa or trekking at the north of the island, where you can find the best beaches of the island.

The nearest beach is Vari and Mega Gialos, 2km away, while all the great beaches of the island are not further than 10 to 15 minutes.

Beauty and Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

This is such a tranquil and soothing place. It was just what I was looking for. As beautiful as the pictures are it is even better in person. The studio is filled with light but it stays wonderfully cool with soft breezes from the cross ventilation. The décor is restrained and tastefully done; many of the antiques are from the family; the fabrics are traditionally handcrafted; and the ceramics are all made by Alexia. The basket of fruits, vegetables and homemade jam that awaited me on arrival was so artfully arranged that at first I didn’t realize it was real.

Initially, Lefteris and Alexia gave me plenty of privacy but when it became clear that as a single traveler I didn’t mind the company they took me under their wing, making suggestions about the best beaches, letting me in on a traditional Greek festival at a nearby village, giving me a tour of the farm and generally making me feel completely at home. As a woman traveling alone I felt absolutely safe.

As mentioned in the some of the other reviews, you will need a car. But it was so nice to return to the shady avenues of Chroussa after a day of exploring beaches or the bustle of Hermoupolis. I really can’t recommend this place enough, especially if you are looking for a quiet, restorative retreat. Thank you Alexia and Lefteris! I hope to return someday.

Comfort, Peace and Beauty

  • 5 of 5

This studio made a perfect place to stay on Syros. It is a spacious, airy, stand-alone stone building, one large room furnished in a traditional style, and complete with a kitchen, small dining table, wardrobe and comfortable double bed. Everything necessary to prepare and eat simple meals at home is provided. The bathroom is basic but fully functional. The terrace, with shade trees and a view over farmland, made a lovely place to dine, or just to sit in the late afternoon and evening.

I appreciated the personal touches: fresh eggs from their chickens, herbs and potatoes from their garden, their own fig jam and their own olive oil. Terry also pointed me to a good rental car company, and met me at the port when I arrived.

Syros itself is an interesting island. I particular enjoyed my trip to the Ano Meria, the small villages and wild lands in the north.

Two practical points:

1. If you stay here, you will need a car. This is not a negative, in my opinion, as it would be a shame to come to Syros and see only Ermoupolis.

2. The drive from Ermoupolis to the farm is not too long (perhaps 20 minutes), but it winds about quite a bit. I arrived after dark and was quite appreciative that Terry met me at the port so I could follow him there in my rental car.

Highly recommended.

Great mini retreat, away from it all...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here during the Festival of the Aegean in 2014 and the beautiful property located in the hills of Chroussa was within easy access by rental car from Ermoupolis - about a 20 min. drive. The one room studio felt spacious, it had everything we needed; a small kitchen, clean bathroom with shower, WiFi, air conditioning, and we loved sitting on the large terrace under the eucalyptus trees. Originally a wine storage unit, the property has been lovingly remodeled into a mini retreat with a traditional feel. Everything is stone and tile with antique furnishings. The owners were absolutely wonderful; they met us at the ferry boat and guided us to the property which is hard to find on a map. Every day we would find little "surprises" ...some lemons, local sweets, etc. There is a small ("tiny") swimming pool which we did not use, in the distance you can see the Mediterranean and the closest beach is about 10 minutes away. I would recommend a rental car if you stay here. We had a fantastic stay and would love to return one day soon...

Ein wunderschöner Ort.

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren in dem größeren Haus, für 2 Wochen und völlig allein. Es war wunderschön! Ein Ort für alle, die nicht viel brauchen, ausser Natur, Ruhe und Entspannung. Wir waren überrascht wie schön Syros ist. Es hat an nichts gefehlt. Danke an die sehr sehr lieben und herzlichen Gastgeber. Wir haben uns wirklich wohl gefühlt. Danke! ;-)
