  • Air-conditioning
  • Ground level bedroom

The beautiful and quiet beach of Kalo Ambeli is only about a fifteen-minute walk along a pretty, unmade path leading from the villa. The sandy beach, well protected from the north winds, and the clear turquoise waters are wonderful for swimming. The beach is popular with children since it is surrounded by rocks, making it ideal for jumping or diving into the water. It is not busy even in the summer.

Only 4km away is the port of Livadi, a small port village with a particularly relaxed and easy-going atmosphere, but with a bit of nightlife as well. Set in a wide greenery-fringed bay, its seafront has many places to eat or to have a drink, and a good selection of shops and services.

The island’s ‘capital’, the Hora, spectacularly situated at the top of a mountain, is only a ten-minute drive from Livadi. A stroll through the narrow streets of the Hora to the remains of the Venetian Kastro at the top is enough to make a visit to Serifos worthwhile.

The mountainous landscape of Serifos offers endless possibilities for hiking, and the island is dotted with villages and monasteries worth exploring. The coastline offers an excellent choice of sandy beaches, with plenty of enjoyable seaside activities, including scuba diving, boat and canoe hire, and boat excursions. Inland, the scenic island of Serifos offers endless opportunities for hiking, walking, guided cave tours, and enjoying the scenery.

Serifos, in the western Cyclades, is a tranquil island somewhat off the tourist trail. Known as the “iron island”, it was the mythical home of the Cyclops, the mighty giant children of Poseidon, who mined the island’s iron deposits and created huge walls. It is also according to myth the island where Danäe and her son Perseus (begotten by Zeus in the famous “golden shower”) washed up on land. Perseus would go on to kill the Gorgon Medusa, and returning with her head, reduced his enemies to stone with its terrible gaze.

The island’s history 

The Cretans were probably Serifos’ original human miners. The Phoenicians and the Mycenaens took their turns occupying the island, and during the Roman Empire Serifos was a place of political exile. The 13th century Venetian dukes, whose slaves reopened the iron mines after a millennium, brought a wealth to the island which was in turn ravaged by the Ottomans and their pirates. The iron mines were the scene of a famous and violent miners’ strike in 1916; the mines are now closed.

What to do on the island

Hora (or Chora) is the charming main town on Serifos, with traditional Cycladian architecture and narrow streets, and a long staircase leading up to the medieval Venetian castle (destroyed in 1210), with beautiful views from the top over the island and the sparkling Aegean Sea. Hora also has an archaeological collection and a museum of folklore. In the northwest of the island, the 16th century Monastery of the Taxiarchs (archangels Gabriel and Michael, who indicated where it was to be built) offers an interesting collection of icons and manuscripts overseen by the one remaining monk. The 4th century BC marble White Tower allegedly is a remnant of the Cyclops’ fortifications, and at Kedarhos (or Kallitsos, “the most beautiful”) is a vaulted tomb of a Roman centurion – perhaps a guard of some Patrician exile. Livadi is the tourist hub of the island and its port; here you find the restaurants and nightlife. Megalo Livadi was the main mining town and its port; there is a sobering monument to the miners’ strike. There is one diving centre on Serifos, and several boat hire and yachting offices.

The beaches

Serifos is virtually ringed with beaches, most of them fairly uncrowded and pristine. Karavi has several shipwrecks just off shore; Livadakia is the most popular, and Agios Sostis is overlooked by a scenic cliff side church. Psili Ammos, near Livadi, is considered by many the best beach on island, and in fact was named the 2003 Sunday Times best European beach.

How to get there

There is no airport on Serifos. The quickest way to reach the island is to fly to Athens, transfer to the port of Piraeus and take either a ferry (4 hours) or a high speed ferry (2.5 hours). There are also ferry connections to Sifnos, Kythnos, Syros, Folegandros, Santorini, etc, for a bit of island-hopping.

Mrs Frances Bates (2016)

A very beautiful house and surroundings. A perfect welcome and probably the best villa we have stayed in. We were made to feel very welcome and everything about the house was wonderful. Fantastic position and views, beautifully kept, lots of varied and comfortable places to sit and extremely well equipped. The walk to the beach was lovely and diving off the rocks a particular joy.
