Sifnos Holidays

Sifnos holidays

Sophisticated Sifnos has managed to retain a discreet distance from the crowds that are drawn to better known islands, and attracts a discerning visitor. Consequently its exceptionally clean beaches feel uncrowded and peaceful (the usual August caveat apart of course), and there is a sense of traditional elegance amidst the narrow streets and whitewashed houses of the classically Cycladic villages dotted around the island. An island of fertile valleys and lofty mountains, a network of walking trails (click here) enable you to explore its many beaches, and can also take you past some of the 227 individual churches, which are overlooked dramatically by several hilltop monasteries.

Kamares, Sifnos

Holidays In Sifnos

The island’s clay soil and continuous sunshine have established a tradition of distinctive pottery making, which in turn has helped develop a highly rated cuisine based on the use of clay ovens. Discerning “foodies” from France and Italy have long appreciated the island’s soups, stews and casseroles, with ingredients supplied locally by the restaurants’ own farms - the island's signature dish is chickpea soup. There is a gasronomy festival held annually on the first weekend of September.

Our favoured resort areas are the small fishing port of Kamares which has more than a dozen tavernas set back from a sandy beach, and Platy Yialos, the best beach on the island with an entire kilometre of golden sand, supported by a good choice of restaurants, cafes and mini-markets. There are also good and quick ferry connections to neighbouring islands such as Milos and Folegandros, making twin centre holidays easy.

Flights from Gatwick, Heathrow and Manchester to Athens.

Transfer to Piraeus port for afternoon ferry to the island (c 2 hrs 15 mins) where you will be met and transferred to your accommodation. On the return the reverse applies for an evening flight back to London or an overnight hotel in Athens or Rafina for the Manchester flight the next day. In early and late season (May and after mid-Sept) an overnight in Athens may be required on arrival and/or departure.

Sifnos, Milos and Folegandros are the easiest to combine – the minimum stay on each is 3 nights. There are also ferry links with Santorini.
