Villa Maria is a listed 19th century neo-classical mansion. Built by a local factory owner in 1873 at the height of Ermoupolis’ prosperity, it is a fine example of the architecture of the period. In restoring it we have preserved all the original features —wooden floors and ceilings, marble bathrooms, decorative mouldings— and used antique furniture to give it a comfortable but authentic feel. The second floor balconies and the roof terrace have panoramic views over the town, the port and across to the neighbouring islands. Behind the villa is a courtyard with plants, built-in seating and a shaded dining area. The villa is on a pedestrian street right in the middle of town, yet a haven of peace and quiet. It is 2 minutes walk from the main square and market, and 5 minutes walk from the V...Villa Maria is a listed 19th century neo-classical mansion.

It is 2 minutes walk from the main square and market, and 5 minutes walk from the Vaporia. This is the town’s ‘Little Venice’, a lido with cafes and crystal-clear water for swimming. The villa has 2 apartments and 3 studios that can be rented separately or in any combination. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 1177K132K1304801More

The house is stunning, and Elisa and Kostas are perfect hosts. Elisa is also a wonderful chef (she regularly hosts cooking courses/retreats at the villa), and she prepared a festive meal for a friend's birthday with exquisite local delicacies. Warmly recommended!

About the neighbourhood
The house couldn't be more ideally located. In the heart of the historical town, it is within short walking distance from everything. Two minutes uphill walk from the main town square around which are all the best cafes and restaurants, a lively local market with fresh produce, stylish little shops and art galleries. The main port is a 5 minute walk. The famous Apollo theater where several musical and theatrical events take place, as well as an international opera festival, is a 3 minute walk. Also within a very short walk there is a lovely spot for swimming in Vaporia neighborhood, the little Venice of Syros.
Getting around
You can go everywhere in town on foot. To visit other beaches, villages and places on the island, there are regular buses. The bus terminal is 5 minutes walk from the house. In case you rent a car or motorbike, you can park it on the road at the foot of the steps.
