We spent three (all too brief) nights here in September, mid-way through our month in the Cyclades, and we can honestly say that this is the most unique accommodation we have ever stayed in. After exchanging emails, we were met at the port by Alexis and Dimitri, who made us feel very welcome immediately, before we were driven up (and...

Breathtaking! This place is amazing and we highly recommend Wind Tales to anyone visiting Syros. The room was beautiful, clean and I've never slept on such a comfortable bed with the best linen. The host was awesome, gave us all the information we needed and he is really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and made from local ingredients....

I visited Windtales in September with my companion. We had an amazing time! The owner Alexis and the rest of the staff are friendly, accommodating, professional and will give you all the information you would like to know when visiting a place for the first time. The breakfast (consisting of traditional, local greek delicacies) is served on the balcony viewing...

We already have been in many hotels, but never in a place like the Wind Tales. It's not because of it's beautiful and spectacular location in the heart of Ano Syros, it's also not because of the great view you have over the whole area. This is all nice, but no, the reason, why this place is amazing is because...

On the nice little island of Syros, WindTales is the place to be. On the slope of the beautiful village of Ano Siros and high above Ermoupoli, WindTales has three superb rooms, with a nice view, and a breakfast you won’t forget easily. Alexis Drikos is a relaxed and interesting host, who manages the hotel created by his parents. A...

This is one of the most difficult reviews I have ever written.. I wanted to like the place so much!! And to be fair the location is excellent and the views are amazing. So here is the long explanation: Yes, It is not the most convenient location if you want to be in the center of Ermoupolis ( main town...

The place is absolutely amazing! It has the most wonderful view of the island! The whole house is a gem, very well decorated as well as the rooms! We were lucky enough to stay in both "Relax" and "Rock" rooms, each one unique on its own way! The breakfast served in the terrace is home made and delicious and the...

A wonderful B&B with only three rooms to choose from. Only one has a private terrace (Flight) but you don't need one to enjoy the magnificent view that opens up from the huge shared terrace. You can enjoy your breakfast or evening cocktails on the terrace (or watch sunrise or the moon rising... we saw the rare red full moon!)....

Excellent location at Ano Syros. Beautiful environment. Rooms are fantastically decorated with great taste. Alexis will give you the best possible tips which I strongly recommend you follow. Breakfast with traditional greek jams made by Alexis' mother and a fantastic fresh grape juice. Excellent value fir money!!!!
