My traditional Greek farmhouse has been in my family for many years - my mother was born there. Set in a country area of the island of Syros about ten minutes walk from a safe sandy beach, it offers two bedrooms and a terrace with good sea and village views.

The space

My old style Greek house is part of a working farm. It is surrounded by olive trees, which are harvested in the traditional way each November. All year we grow vegetables and keep chickens. Inside the house is furnished in a Cycladic style. Many pieces of furniture have been handed down through my family. There is no central heating or aircon, but we have fans and portable heaters if required. You can also use the open fireplace in winter to be really cosy.

Guest access

Free WiFi internet access is available, there is a washing machine, fully equipped kitchen with cooker and oven and outside barbecue. If you wish, you can help with the olive harvest and visit the olive press.

Interaction with guests

i live nearby and usually see guests each day. You can buy farm produce that is in season from my garden and those of my neighbours. I can meet you from the port when you arrive and help you arrange car hire, boat excursions and give you information about the island and local walks.

Yiannis was very nice and helpful. He gave us great tips about the island. The house is great, and the location is perfect. I totally recommend it.

The house is fully equipped and full of charm. It's a magical place. The village is small but has a good number of restaurants for all budgets. The beaches are a walkable distance. We preferred The more secluded Delphini. Great price and Yiannis was always helpful. Highly recommended.

There isn't a lot I can add to what's already been said by previous visitors. Yiannis and his wife are superb hosts. Very honest, down to earth people who are always willing to help in every department. The farmhouse for me was a dream. A perfect location for the short stay traveller or even for a longer visit if required. So much so I added two extra nights to my stay! There's a warm homely feel to the place and more importantly, you feel like you're in REAL Greece. Yiannis also has apartments 1km or so away from the farm so it's also worth contacting him if you want something slightly smaller. Amazing value for money.

I belong to one of the oldest families in Kini and was born here. I love my garden, my olive trees and my village. I have studios nearby that I rent in the summer to tourists from Scandanavia and further afield. I try to make my guests welcome by offering Greek hospitality and gi…
