About the property

Farmhouse in Ano Manna, Syros, Greece - Peaceful Secluded Location Set Amongst Olive And Cypress Trees Close To The Aegean Sea

Manna is a delightful 19th Century Farmhouse which has been cleverly restored to retain many of its traditional Greek features. This is one of Syros' hidden treasures with original tiled floors, wooden bread ovens and thick stone walls which keep the house cool in summer. The house is set amongst extensive gardens with pine trees and olive terraces surrounding the private plunge pool which is perfect for a quick dip. The two outside verandas are ideal for relaxing with a book, al-fresco dining or simply enjoying the spectacular views across the surrounding countryside. Reached by a small country lane, this is the ideal place to experience authentic Greece.

Why Olivia Musgrave chose Greece

Our lovely farmhouse has been lovingly restored so that our guests can enjoy the "real" Greece which is so difficult to find in these days of mass tourism. The house is much loved, well equipped and perfect for a getaway from it all holiday without being isolated.

Notes on accommodation: This delightful, secluded, comfortable home has been restored with a clever blend of old and new. The well equipped kitchen/diner still has the original decorative tiles and one of the cosy sitting rooms has a large wood burning stove in case of chilly evenings. The use of colour, soft furnishings, locally crafted floor coverings and textiles make this a unique place to stay. All the bedrooms have been tastefully decorated by the artist owner, with lovely antique furniture and comfortable beds. Each bedroom has its own bathroom (3 of which are en-suite) and lovely views. Our cleaner comes once a week to clean the house and the laundry is also changed weekly. We are happy to arrange additional domestic help at an hourly rate. Outside: Manna is a delight at any time of year. Set in 20 acres of gardens and countryside, covered with wild herb, thyme, sage and oregano, this is the perfect place to enjoy the Aegean seasons - in spring the gardens are fresh and green and carpeted with wonderful flowers. The large plunge pool is secluded amongst olive, pine and cypress trees with shaded areas around it for a snooze during the afternoon sun. There are two covered verandas - one has a bamboo roof and is perfect for al-fresco dining around the large wooden table. The second pergola has comfortable furniture to relax and enjoy the stunning views across the gardens. There are woodland paths through the gardens which are perfect for exploring the nearby countryside. The gardener comes in during the week to water the plants and clean the pool - he speaks perfect English and is a mine of information! Utility Room: The seperate Utility Room has a washing machine. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen included. Maid service and cleaning once a week. Towels and Linen changed once a week. Other: There is a second sitting room which is also perfect for a snooze or to simply relax with a book at the end of the day.
