Find yourself amidst true tranquillity on Greece’s smaller paradise island of Sifnos, by staying at the luxurious boutique Elies Resort, offering 32 rooms. Maintaining a classical Greek-style feel with its flat roofs and traditional, pristine white-washed walls, the resort radiates a sense of both beauty and serenity where you’ll be able to completely unwind. Overlooking Sifnos’ stunning Vathi Bay, the resort boasts white sandy beaches and unforgettable sea views.
Fly into Athens International airport and travel half an hour to Athens’ Piraeus port, which guarantees the best connections to Sifnos’ Kamares port. You’ll ride the sapphire blue Aegean either by the daily 5 hour ferry or the high-speed 3 hour catamaran. Alternatively, you’ll arrive in style by helicopter thanks to Sifnos’ own fully-functional heliport, located just 15 minutes from the resort on Vathi Beach. Beyond the secluded, charming beach, get lost in rustic Sifnos by walking the area’s endless country trails and ancient villages atop its beautiful yellow and white, coastal hillside.
Elies Resort boasts romantic elegance with its spacious, Cycladic-style rooms, including suites and pool villas should you wish to rest up in your Greek utopia more privately. Soft white, minimalist interiors adorned with a combination of classic and contemporary art give you a truly peaceful setting, ideal for a relaxation retreat.
Why We Like It
Beyond reclining on your sun lounger, discover Sifnos’ gastronomic excellence with Elies Resort’s Greek cooking lessons, which incorporate an authentic mix of the island’s local produce. If you’d prefer to be cooked for, the restaurant prides itself on culinary genius, giving you the finest in Mediterranean cuisine. We especially loved its fresh kalamári dish with the Greek salad.
