Villa Maria is truly the BEST place to stay in Syros. Eliza and Kostas are welcoming and make you feel like you are at home in their space. You MUST try their cooking class!!! Eliza is incredibly knowledgeable, and the food you create is some of the best Greek food you will ever have. Kostas will give you the best recommendations on the island, and make sure you've planned out your visit well. These guys truly care about your experience, and are so genuine and kind. The facilities are perfect, everything is clean and works well. You won't regret this stay!

Stayed in a beautiful room (replete with shutters) for a few nights. Tastefully restored and nicely decorated neoclassical house just a few blocks back from the main square in Syros (I could see the sea from my room). Kostas and Elisa were very welcoming and founts of information about the island and helped me make the best of my short time there. A superb place to stay, strongly recommended.

We had an amazing time in Villa Maria. The room and the view from the balcony was beautiful. Kostas is a very friendly host with many tips and proposals. 🙂

We loved our time at Villa Maria. Kostas was the most amazing host. He picked us up at the main square, was always ready to share tips and all the restaurants he recommeded were amazing. The house is unique and each room has his own neoclassical charm. It will take your breath away! Location is perfect, super quiet and you have a shared garden + 2! seaview terraces! Highly recommended!

I feel lucky to have stayed at Villa Maria! The room and house in general are super nicely decorated and it feels like you are living in another time. The view is one of the best I've had in my life: The city, the sea and the big blue sky are all there and you get a real sense of the greek island amazing light! The hospitality from the hosts is stellar, they made me feel super at home from the first moment and even provided a lot of information for nearby hikes. I cannot recommend it enough!

I intended to stay at Villa Maria for 5 weeks but loved it so much I ended up staying for nearly 3 months. Villa Maria itself is beautiful, it also has an incredible view and is in the perfect location - right in the heart of Ermoupoulis. Kostas and Elisa are the kindest hosts, who went above and beyond to look after me. I couldn’t have had a nicer stay here and can’t recommend it enough. A very special place.

Once again our stay at Villa Maria was wonderful. Our host is friendly and discreet and has paid attention to all the details that make a guest feel comfortable, such as the well-kept bed with the very comfortable mattress and pillows. Wonderful room with large windows and balcony overlooking the town of Ermoupoli. I highly recommend it.

Villa Maria is an extremely unique and friendly place. Once you arrive you already feel like home. You have nothing to worry about. Kostas is there for you, to show you and tell you anything you need to know about the island and its pure magic! He is there to help you out with everything. The rooms/ the house is located at a fantastic spot remind you of a Shakespeare setting ! It's very clean and cozy! Staying at Villa Maria it's an excellent choice and a good memory to keep you warm through the hectic days of the city! Hope you have an amazing stay! Enjoy every single bit of it !

A beautifully decorated 19th century house, located just above the main square with amazing views over the port and nearby islands from the top rooms. Kostas is a very friendly and helpful host and a mine of information about the island. We've stayed several times and hope to be back soon.

Rupert Smith Avatar Rupert Smith

Amazing villa, we were totally in love with it. Every room was beautifully renovated with respect to the original.. the location was perfect and the views amazing. Kostas was really friendly and enthusiastic, thank you for the hospitality! One of the best places we ever stayed, would definitely come back!!

Sana Otten Avatar Sana Otten

Kostas was a great host, and gave us superb and detailed advice about beaches and places to visit for nice food and drinks. Each and every place of those recommended, that we visited, were truly worthy. Villa Maria is a beautiful old building, very near the main square of the town, with many floors and different renovated apartments. We stayed at the Evie apartment, the one on the basement. It is beautifully decorated and super spacious with a fully Equipped kitchen. Only 'flaw' I can find was that there was no air condition, and the apartment was a bit hot. however the ground fan available was more than sufficient for us. Overall it was an amazing stay and we would be glad to come back soon! 5/5 stars and strongly recommended!

    Πεντακάθαρος χώρος, προσεγμένος και ακόμα πιο όμορφος απ' όσο φαίνεται στις φωτογραφίες. Θα ευχαριστηθείτε κάθε γωνιά του και κάθε μικρή πινελιά που έχουν προσθέσει οι οικοδεσπότες. Ο Κώστας ήταν άμεσα διαθέσιμος για ό,τι χρειαστήκαμε και γενικώς πολύ φιλόξενος.

    Η βίλλα, εκτός της αίσθησης που προσφέρει, έχει ένα ιδιαίτερο χαρακτηριστικό: οι αυλές και οι ταράτσες της προσφέρουν τρομερή θέα ενώ ταυτόχρονα η βίλλα βρίσκεται μόλις 3' από την πλατεία Μιαούλη.

    Συνίσταται ανεπιφύλακτα για διακοπές στην Ερμούπολη.
