Simple, yet architecturally very interesting, house with large sitting room, comfortable kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bath, separate guest room with its own bathroom, shady courtyard, & large veranda with an unparalleled view of the sunset. Ideal for 6 people!

The space
The house is furnished with what we call ‘absolutely necessary’ but with great attention to detail. Every object has been selected with love and care for its visual or even sentimental value.
The owners have decided to let the property intact, that is, without removing any of the little treasures that enrich this magical environment. It is surrounded by a garden, strictly planted with only what traditionally grows on the island (fig, lemon, olive and pomegranate trees, sage, rosemary, lavender, vine and laurel).

The house is built on three levels connected with passages of three to four steps. It consists of a living room, master bedroom, children’s bedroom, kitchen and bathroom and has an external guests’ room and bathroom. The house and all its terraces are paved with slate stone, as is the tradition on the island. All windows are equipped with pull-down insect screens.

The spacious living room has three windows and three doors towards the outside, one of which is the main entrance to the house. The focus of the room is the fireplace, built with three massive stones and refractory bricks. The furniture consists of two sofas, that can be used as beds in case of the occasional family’s extra guest, one large wooden dinning table that sits 8, a late 800’s chest of drawers and mirror, two armchairs, coffee tables, etc. A built-in cupboard hosts a rare collection of Italian pottery.

The kitchen, the house’s center, is a large space accessible from both the living room and the sleeping area, with immediate access to the front patio and back garden. A purpose-built fully equipped fitted kitchen with the every day utility items, hides two built-in fridges and a washing machine. The kitchen area is divided in two: A working area, that is self contained and includes the cooking and washing space and a dinning area with a table that sits four or even six. It is worth mentioning that the kitchen hosts an important collection of over 100 rare, late 19th and early 20th century plates from northern Italy.

The master bedroom is strategically situated at the furthest end of the house and overlooking a small rear terrace, it's dominated by an old, cast iron, four poster double bed. A wall to wall fitted cupboard is partly used for the house’s linen.

The children’s bedroom overlooks the back garden and has direct access to the rear small terrace. It is furnished with two single beds and a working desk. Two fitted wardrobes provide more than enough space for summer clothing as well as storage of suitcases and bags.

The bathroom is situated near the children’s and master bedrooms and overlooks the front patio. It is equipped with a sink, a toilet and a full size bathtub. A small collection of old mirrors decorates this ‘elementary’ gracious little room.

The guest room is fully independent from the rest of the house. It has access from the entrance patio but has also a second door that enables extra privacy when needed. This is a very special little room. Two single beds, an ingenious hanging construction for clothing, a small fire place, a collection of oil lanterns hanging from the ceiling, a bench, a stool and the total absence of conventional furniture gives a monastery-cell feeling about it.

The guests' Spartan’ bathroom, accessed from the front patio, is equipped with a sink, toilet and shower.

The small entrance patio is a very important part of the house during the summer. Being shaded by an old vine tree it offers a natural shelter, ideal for reading in the afternoon but also, on the eventual windy day, it is a guaranteed spot for peace.

The large open rear terrace, accessible by the living room or the kitchen, offers a spectacular view of the Kamares valley and the Profitis Ilias mountain Monastery. Its western orientation gives it two great attributes: One can enjoy late breakfast there up until 11.00 am and, in the afternoon, one can watch the sunset towards the Kamares bay. Deck chairs and a very long table that seats up to 14 invite for open air long breakfasts and candle lit dinners.

Where you’ll be

Katavati, Greece

The house is situated at the highest point of Eleimonas, near the homonymous church, overlooking the valley of Kamares and in front of the mountain of Profitis Ilias offering a superb, unobstructed view of the monastery at its top.
It is certainly a privileged, though secluded, position, away from even the remotest noise or sound of somebody walking by.

This house is ideal for someone seeking peace and space for reflection.

I run a Short term Rentals' agency since 2007 and I've learned a lot all these years, from experiences, as well as mistakes! We specialize in all-inclusive rentals of high-quality apartments and houses in Greece, for a stylish, personalized hotel alternative. I enjoy carefully selecting furnished, equipped apartments & studios, intended for a short city break or for a longer corporate stay in the very heart of Athens. I also take pride in hand-picking unique traditional Cycladic residences, ideal for experiencing the simplicity of a genuine home in a small island, like Sifnos. Bottom line: I love my job! I hope you'll love our properties too :-)
