Apollonia is the municipal centre of Siphnos, located at the hub of the network of traditional settlements which are a unique example of vernacular Cycladic architecture. Surrounded by hills, and overlooked by the monastery of Prophet Ilias, Apollonia is a beautiful beginning to exploring one of the most attractive varied and unspoiled Cycladic islands.
The house is conveniently located 50 meters from the road, 100 m. from the parking lot, very near the central square of Apollonia. There are banks, travels agents, chemists, shops, restaurants and bars within easy walking distance.
The bus and taxi service operates from Apollonia to all locations on the island. The port is a 10 minute drive from Apollonia.
The house is ideal for those seeking a lively social atmosphere, easy access to services and a variety of destinations, as well as evening entertainment and peaceful afternoons.
Purchased in the sixties by architects, and maintained with respect to traditional architectural and aesthetic values, to the highest standards. Thick stone walls keep the house cool in summer, and Siphnian stone floors and wooden beams lend a sense of authentic historical value.
The centre of the house is the salon with impressive high ceilings, characteristic of the local architecture. There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed, the second with two singles, and a small veranda with views out to the town and the surrounding mountains.
A tiled hall leads to a kitchen, which is fully equipped, decorated with traditional Siphnian ceramic ware.
The house is comfortably furnished including some 19th century antiques, original pictures, and a collection of traditional domestic objects.
The bathroom is independent of the main house, accessed from the terrace.
The traditional stone clad terrace has a dining table to seat six, with a beautiful vine providing shade.
