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 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. The first floor apartment sleeps 8, the three second floor studios sleep 8 in total (2+2+4) and the last apartment is an independent house at the back of the courtyard that sleeps 4.
Villa Syra has a very hospitable and social feel and works well as a single unit. It is an ideal venue for retreats and workshops for groups of up to 20. In this case we offer catering as well. In the ground floor of the villa there is a sitting /dining room and a large gourmet kitchen used during retreats. The Villa is available if you would like to arrange your own retreat or if you would be interested in one of our tailor made weeks, focusing on various activities (yoga, hiking, cooking classes).
