Clean Lines and Natural Materials

Asteria is Greek for “sky full of stars,” and this villa has some of the best seats in the house. Come nightfall, sink into a butterfly chair on the northwest side of the L-shaped infinity pool and watch the show: the moon descending beyond the Aegean Sea, above you, the milky way’s luminous spiral.

Daytime pursuits are just as pleasurable in this hillside villa in Sifnos, with a traditional stone façade that echoes the rugged outcroppings. Inside, living and outdoor areas face west, offering shade in the morning and views of the Aegean and the Western Cyclades from nearly every turn. One floor down is a playroom, equipped with a TV, table tennis, and a kitchenette with a small fridge.

Two bedrooms, to the right of the entrance, are stunning places to retire, with crisp beds looking seaward. Left of the entrance is the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and direct access to the pool; a little farther down the corridor is a second bedroom with its own private sea view balcony.

Pluck some thyme or oregano from the bushes outside and cook a Greek feast, or lay poolside, still and peaceful as the nature around you. Explore the small, low-key island of Sifnos when adventure calls.

Description

This four-bedroom, four-bathroom villa in Sifnos is a perfect place for one or two families to enjoy a Greek holiday. Entertain outside with a large concrete dining table for 12 people, with wooden benches and a built-in corner sofa, and a coal BBQ.

Sharing the property of 5’300 sqm is a second, similarly-designed house of similar architectural design, but with seclusion and privacy highly considered. Contact is limited to the south-facing stone wall, while the living areas of both villas are on opposite ends, 40 meters apart.

A limited cell phone connection – operational in the external sitting area of the house and partly in the living room – along with a void of artificial lights, lets the stars shine their brightest.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Air-conditioning, Internet, TV, Washer and Dryer, Shampoo, Fire Extinguisher, and First Aid Kit

AROUND

Located within a small cluster of summer homes on the Greek island of Sifnos (just 24 km long), one neighbor on the other side of the hill is a shepherd and his family (here you can buy fresh eggs and cheese). Below the villa is Vroulidia beach, a five-minute drive away. 

The village Artemonas, with its Neoclassical mansions and windmills, has a supermarket and spectacular view if you walk to the top, of Paros, Naxos, Sikinos, and Folegandros. One and a half kilometers from Artemonas is Apollonia, another postcard-worthy village with shopping and nightlife. The iconic blue-domed Church of the Seven Martyrs, atop Kastro village, is perhaps the most photographed of the island’s hundreds of religious buildings.

Archeology and history lovers should visit Agios Andreas, an ancient citadel with an Acropolis that dates to 13th century B.C. 

Sifnos is also a foodie haven, known for its variety of restaurants, both traditional – think fish and slow-cooked stews – and modern, with sushi and ceviche.

    Thanks Philippos, everything was great. We really enjoyed your house and your hospitality. It is really a wonderful place, heaven on earth with the breathtaking view, especially at sunset. If we had to build it our self we would do it exactly the same.

    Mathias

  • Vincent, October 20, 2019

    The house is just great. Located on a small and steep dirt road you feel really secluded, the goat herder next doors was the only person we encountered during our stay, except for Sofia the incredibly friendly care taker of the house. There is a beautiful little beach a 10 min walk away where you’ll find two restaurants. The rest of the island is best explored by car. Will try to make it back one time!

    Vincent

  • Douglas, September 25, 2019

    We had the most fantastic time staying at this house. It was quite incredible and we are so grateful to have stayed. The house and location are both epic. Truly epic! The prompt responses and help from Philippos where fantastic. Sophia the house-keeper was just the best I’ve come across in any vacation rental. A real treasure. We hope to be back next year!

    Magical !! This is the most beautiful comfortable house. The most lovely views. Remote with all the privacy you would want. Fully equipped. Not a thing missing. The lovely Sofia can make a home cooked meal at the house. Remarkable ! So fresh and delicious. The beach below the house is my favorite of the island. Two restaurants. Both worth trying. Excellent morning coffee. The hike back up the dirt road is a bit strenuous but then you jump in the salt water pool and all is good in the world ! Or you can take your 4 wheel drive car most of the way down. We went into all the other towns for sight seeing and dinners. 30 min max. Its not far but Sifnos is winding slow roads. Once you learn the dirt road to the house and the turns it is no problem. I recommend a 4 wheel drive car. Philippos was an amazing host. We never met but he helped me tremendously through Whats App with some travel plans. Both house and Philippos are 5 star !

  • John, September 12, 2019

    My wife and I (plus another couple) recently returned from a fantastic stay at Philippos’s place. The house is absolutely lovely. The location is truly stunning and gives you a real appreciation for the island’s beauty. Every morning a friendly farmer went by with his goats; the evenings made for excellent star viewing. Philippos arranged for Sofia, the house keeper, to cook for us one evening and it was one our favorite meals of the entire trip (although don’t miss Omega 3 in Platis Gialos – worth the drive!). The walk to the beach is fairly steep but Katina (who is very sweet) will deliver food from her restaurant to the house in the evening if you don’t want to bother with the walk. It is easy to get around the island (although you may want to request a 4 wheel drive as the house is on a dirt road). Philippos was always quick to respond and we look forward to return trip to this lovely home. Thank you, Philippos!

    Unforgettable holidays in a special house. A dream on photos and exactly the same it is in reality. Everything is designed and selected with love. We really liked that. The pool is very elegant and also well usable. That was a highlight especially for the children. The mattresses are very good, that did our sleep good. To spend the evenings outside did us a lot of good. Mega relaxing.

  • Margie, June 21, 2019

    What a fabulous place!! We stayed at Asteria for a week with a group of 6. The house was perfectly set up for all of us, comfortable and spacious. The house is down a dirt road but it is easily accessible by car. For us the location couldn’t have been better, a short 10 minute drive to town, there are also two beaches within 10 minutes that are absolutely beautiful. You can either drive around to the next bay or walk down to Katerina’s for excellent food and a quiet, beautiful beach. We loved the peace and quiet here and the slow pace of Sifnos. Phillipos and Sofia looked after us so well. We asked Sofia to come and cook for us a few nights and her food is absolutely wonderful! An excellent place to stay, we would highly recommend!

    Margie

  • Orielle, June 19, 2019

    Amazing place! Philippos was a great host and Sophia, the housekeeper/manager, was very helpful and kind. The location is close to one of the most beautiful beaches in Sifnos (Vriloudia). There is a great taverna at the beach that we ordered food from on several occasions during our stay. The house itself was beautiful, modern, and well equipped. There was plenty of space for our party of 8. The landscape is wild and beautiful and the goats in the morning are a fun morning ritual to enjoy while having your morning coffee/tea outside.

    Wow! Philippos’ house is magic! Tucked away in the hills above Vroulidia beach, it’s a great spot from which to enjoy the natural wonders of Sifnos. The house, beautifully designed and thoughtfully appointed is a perfect fit for the Sifnian countryside: beautiful and stark. No detail has been forgotten, from the pool toys to the kitchen appliances, everything is at your finger tips. We were a large group – 6 adults and 1 three-year old – and we all found our bedrooms comfortable and generous. The pool, which wraps around the outdoor space was the centre of our communal living. We ate meals outside and spent leisurely afternoons swimming and lounging in the sun. Phillipos and his support team were extremely helpful and responsive. They enriched our stay with recommendations and islander wisdom (where to eat, which hike to take, which local church was hosting an all-night celebration). Looking back, our time in Sifnos is dreamy and surreal: a perfect blend of adventure and leisure, family and friends and at the centre of it all: Phillipos and his wonderful house!

    Stunningly beautiful – to precise this heaven’s place on a nature’s wonder. The house as well as its views are simply soul soothing, forming the perfect setting for a hide-out within Greek hospitality. Philoppos was so very attentive with hints and general information that not a single question remained unanswered. Beautiful Sofia has visited us three times within one week to spoil us with her overwhelming friendliness and helping hand. What more to say – waking up with the gentle bell ringing of the passing goats will be heavily missed. Strolling around the rough and breathtaking beauty will be taken in our hearts. Eucaristw !

    This is such a truly lovely house. Philippos is one of the most responsive and attentive hosts I have ever worked with. The space is beautiful and filled with amenities; Sofia, the housekeeper is playful and fun to have around when she comes. Her sister Katarina runs one of the cafes at Vroulidia Beach, a healthy walk down the hill -she warmly welcomed us at her cafe; we had an amazing dinner one night. We loved exploring all of the island, and the drive to other towns, which seemed slightly forbidding at first, became easy and frequent across the days, but each time we were so very happy to return to our quiet lovely haven. Eight of us spent a lot of time in the pool and enjoying large meals together on the patio. The house is best for 8, no more, as I would not call the 5th bedroom a desirable bedroom and the indoor living area, while really lovely, is smallish. Internet had its challenges but it worked enough to get by, and you can always drive into Appollonia. I definitely recommend this beautiful house. It’s a place of positive energy.

    There is literally nothing about Philippos’s beautiful home we didn’t love, from start to finish. It’s in an amazing location – and it’s just stunning as a home. We had four small kids with us and the main living area opening out onto the outdoor space with the pool meant the four adults could relax and breathe and enjoy our holiday. Sifnos is such a special island and to have this home as our base made it all perfect. We’d go again in a nanosecond.

    We had an exceptional stay at the house in Sifnos. The place is beautiful, decorated with excellent taste and we loved the secluded area because it is very relaxing and peaceful. We enjoyed going to the bay down the property where Katarina welcomed us like family and prepared delicious fish, salads, fried zucchini,…and the bay is a little piece of paradise. We enjoyed the gorgeous sunsets from the cozy outdoor area. Just a magnificent place!

    Just came back from an amazing 2 weeks at Phillippos’ beautiful house on Sifnos. None of our party of 8 had ever been to Sifnos before so I was putting all my trust in the reviews I had read and in the correspondence I had with Phillippos over emails. Nothing disappointed. Before coming Phillippos was wonderful in answering all my questions about transportation, shopping, restaurants etc. Upon arrival we were met by his charming father and the wonderful housekeeper Sofia who stopped by 3 times a week to keep the house in spotless order, share tips of the island with us and generally made us feel welcomed. She also cooked us a great Greek meal with ingredients that she brought herself. The house is set on the north tip of the island and has its own stunning bay. The 1 km steep walk up and down the hill to get to the beach got our hearts pumping but made that first dip in all the more pleasurable. There are also 2 wonderful tavernas on the bay that serve food all day. The house itself is just as described in the photos. 4 spacious, comfortable bedrooms and several seating areas both inside and out, all very tastefully decorated. The upstairs rooms have AC which was welcomed at night while the downstairs rooms are cooler and only need fans. Also downstairs is a large recreation room with tv and ping pong table and a great laundry room to dump our towels. The kitchen was fully equipped with lovely plates and glasses and serving dishes and the linen closets filled with sheets and towels. The pool is warmed by having the sun on it all day making the temperature perfect for evening swims under the blanket of stars. Towards the end of out stay we had the pleasure of meeting Phillippos and his family who were on the island for a few days to make sure all was well and to drop off some extra cushions and rugs. You can expect to totally unwind and relax while staring off into the horizon listening to the tinkling of goat bells. A wonderful house with a great host. Thank you Phillippos and family!

    Absolutely wonderful house in a perfect area to enjoy the holidays.. TOP!!! The contact with Philippos in front of our stay was very good and helpful. Sofia, she is looking to the house, welcome us very warmhearted, with a delicious dinner we preordered because of our late arrival. The area around the house is perfect…very naturally, with birds, bees, goats etc. and so quiet that you can really relax! The big Pool is fantastic and the view breathtaking! The house is very tastefully decorated with much attention to the details. The outdoor area is very nice, which we really enjoyed in every second while our stay. !!!highly recommended!!!

    It’s hard to find superlatives that have not already been used by previous guests. The house is an absolute gem, worthy of its own feature in Dwell Magazine. After ten cloudless days ending with amazing sunsets, we pinch ourselves back at the grind, was it all just a dream? With friends and family coming and going, we were seven occupants at most, but felt we could have invited more people , since the extra bedroom and generous, built-in sofas would easily accommodate three or four more. Whether used as a peaceful retreat or for lively gatherings, Philippos has thought of everything. Every gadget for cooking and entertaining is available. The modern, rustic design is tasteful and functional. Sofia keeps the place immaculate with her twice, weekly visits. Her sister Katerina will cater your dinners, should you choose to do so and she will also shuttle you up to the nearest parking area, from her restaurant down on the beach. Sifnos has so much to offer. For us, the house kept drawing us back, with its stunning views , tranquility and fabulous pool. Every lighting option is available outdoors but at the end of the day , with all the lights shut down, the Milky Way provided unparalleled magic that made Asteria an unforgettable experience. Again, Philippos thank you for sharing your slice of paradise.

    Definitely the most beautiful vacation rental I’ve ever stayed in. Polished concrete, wood, rough linen. It looks and feels like an Elle Decoration shoot. Incredible views of the sunsets, a gorgeous cove of a beach just 10 minutes walk down the hill, with two great restaurants, this home is the perfect chic, secluded place to relax. Oh, and the pool is perfect and gets the sun all day. Absolute heaven.
