About the property

Two 65sq.m. dreamy stone made summerhouses with olive green woodwork, in the magnificent (and awarded) sandy bay of Ganema, in Serifos island.They are next to each other, can be separately rented or both together by two groups or families. Both are located just 350m away from the beach, in a complex of 5 houses built in 2010, local architectural line. Facing the sea it is an ideal place to stay and enjoy the magic of Greek waters, sun and meltemi wind. In both houses a big bamboo roofed balcony has all the great view, where you can dine or relax on a long chair or a swing and enjoy the sea view in the morning, the romantic sunset in the afternoon and the star bright moonlit sky at night. Accommodation: Each house has one bedroom with double bed (140 cm), one bedroom with two single beds, two bathrooms may comfortably host four persons. The bedrooms following traditional architectural forms are at the lowest level of the house have rather small windows so they stay cool almost during the whole summer. House 2 can host a fifth person on a bunkbed in the singles bedroom. On the upper floor, a salon with a sofa facing the sea, next to the equipped kitchen. There are 2 bathrooms with shower in each house. A washing machine, 3G wifi, tv, dvd-cd player, toaster, coffee and espresso maker and air conditioning complete the utilities of both houses. House 1 has the extra of a BBQ whereas House 2 has the extra of a dishwasher. The houses are available April-October for seasonal or weekly stay. Note carefully the captions on the listed pictures noted as House1 and House2.

Serifos is one of the prettiest and still unspoiled islands of the Aegean full of sun and wind and many crystal blue sandy beaches, barren rocky scenery, a truly picturesque capital, a range of night life activities but all at very peaceful levels of tourism since it has traditionally been a family island. Ganema is the largest beach of Serifos 8kms from the port, on the south of the island, in between Koutalas bay and Vagia bay. The beach is unique in that it is made from big pebbles on the one side followed by sand and ending to thin sand covering any kind of beach you may have dreamed of. Serifos is just 2.5hs from Athens by Ferry still keeping its lively secluded atmosphere. The Port is just 8 km away from Ganema. A few yachts select this as a night stay. A very famous Greek ship owner has selected Ganema for his summerhouse too.

House1 is located at the left end of the complex offering a wider angle of view including a part towards the mainland. It has the extra of a hammock in the balcony with view towards the bay which is so relaxing.

House 2 is located in a more direct facing angle towards the centre of the bay and has a slightly bigger balcony than house1. It may host a 5th person adding a bunkbed at the singles bedroom. Moreover it has a lovely stone built bed at the coolest spot of the balcony offering absolute relaxation under the sound of crickets in the morning or the breaking waves at night. Both Houses have a dishwasher as well as a laundry machine.

Excellent séjour à tous niveaux !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour formidable avec nos 3 enfants (11, 7 et 4 ans).

La maison est très jolie, bien équipée et la terrasse est très agréable à tous les moments de la journée. La plage de Ganema est l'une des plus jolies de l'île et est bien abritée des vents. Elle est à moins de 5 minutes à pied de la maison.

L'île est très sauvage et magnifique et une voiture est cependant nécessaire pour la visiter (3 jours de location est suffisant selon nous).

Les propriétaires Takis et Mika sont adorables et nous ont accueillis avec une grande gentillesse, disponibilité et écoute permanente !!

A recommander sans aucune hésitation !
