In the magical medieval Kastro area of Sifnos, lies a beautiful small loft house. "Katerina's home" stands in the quiet area of Kastro, near a mini market, coffee shops and small gift shops!
The area is built on a rock mountain and has a beautiful rocky beach called Eftamartyros right underneath it and a pebble beach near by, called Seralia!
Our houses are 100 meters from the parking area and have a beautiful island street view!

The space

The house is small but it can accomodate 3 adults or 2 adults and a child!!

Interaction with guests

We welcome you at your arrival and we invite you anytime there is a tradition in Sifnos to experience it with us.
We can provide you with all the information for "Sifnos Trails" and if you need a guide.
Plus we have a farm that you can visit and interact with the animals, gather vegetables and fruits (and super fruits!!) and every weekend we have the traditional Sifnian Revythada dish (Chickpeas soup) that we cook in a traditional outside oven.

Other things to note

There are a lot of festivities in the island and we try to help you experience them.
If you want to get closer to the greek culture, we also teach Greek!! (and (URL HIDDEN) case you have a teenager to torture!!)
If you want to have some privacy we can provide a baby sitter!

The place is unique as you stay in a medieval town in an authentic, tiny (bear that in mind if you enjoy spacious accommodation) house. Maria is a lovely host. Make sure you ask her for tips - she knows where to eat really good (although it seems that you can't go wrong on Sifnos). Tip from a Cyclade-hopping tourist: rent a car, it makes Sifnos much easier to explore and Maria's place easily reachable at any time of the day or night.

This was our second time in the Cyclades and our first visit to Sifnos. We knew very little of the small towns on Sifnos and their relationship to beaches, etc. In retrospect, after our excellent stay at Maria's place, we believe Kastro is THE place to be when you visit Sifnos. And Maria's place is one of the few great places to stay in Kastro. A quaint little apartment right in Kastro, you'll enjoy stunning sunrises and close proximity to some of the best food on Sifnos (To Astro is a few doors down) as well as some small shops. During the day, tourists roam by your door as they explore Kastro. At night, it is peaceful and quiet with friendly locals chatting in the twilight. Need to get a little more nightlife? Appollonia is a quick drive or slightly longer walk up the hill. Heading to the beaches? You're central to drive off to beaches north or south. Bus service comes to Kastro just below Maria's place. Some notes: 1. There is a washing machine (a blessing for longer stays). 2. The stairs to the loft bedroom are quite narrow and could be challenging for those who are not agile. 3. Green travelers: Once you buy a couple bottles of water, you can refill them for 20 cents in the parking lot next to the ACS in Apollonia. We loved the ability to reuse our containers. Overall, we highly recommend staying at Maria's place. Maria is an exceptionally attentive host (we had a slight medical emergency and she was able to immediately connect us with appropriate care). Take advantage of Maria's great knowledge of Sifnos-it will enrich your stay as you enjoy her place. Thank you, Maria!

The apartment is quite small but very cozy and sweet. The location is also great - the traditional medieval village in which the studio is located is beautiful and it is lovely to walk around. Maria is super friendly and accomodative. We were invited to go with her to a traditional religious festivity. However, we declined the offer, since we only had one full day and it would have been a late night event. For those in search of a cozy environment, this is the place to be! We really enjoyed our stay :)
