Stay: Psacharopoulos House

Sifnos, Cyclades, Greece
07.13.2011 | by: Alexandria

Located in a tiny hilltop village of Artemonas, the Psacharopoulos House couldn’t be farther from the typical Grecian tourist path. The 19th-century neoclassical home is found on Sifnos, a small and sleepy island that’s managed to avoid many of the Aegean’s most popular ferry routes. And like its island location, the house also speaks to a quieter time, way back when bathrooms didn’t outnumber bedrooms, before flat screens invaded every room in the house (there isn’t one to be found here. Drama is best found in the ocean views). Built in the 19th century by the Pasacharopoulos clan, the house is still in the family, now with its 6th-generation owner, Nicos Zacharias, who’s obsessed with keeping the place low-key and honest to its historical roots. The two-story structure is wrapped with sprawling terraces and tiered, old-growth gardens. Inside, the five-bedroom house is filled with treasures collected by the family over decades, but it’s all put together with a sense of old-world restraint, with rooms that manage to be both spare and cozy. Perfect to calm the most cluttered mind.

The Details
The five-bedroom house sleeps up to eight people. Located a 15-minute drive from the beach; a 5-minute walk to nearby tavernas and coffee shops; and a 10-minute walk to the island’s main town, Apollonia. Prices start at $2,230 a week. Rent it at welcomebeyond.com.
