“Beautiful and peaceful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

We are a family with two small kids (5 and 3), and we stayed at Xanthakis studios in Vathy for a week. the place was really gorgeous. Nice big room with a kitchenette, and nice bathroom, and a big terrace, in a green and cute garden, looking to the beach and the sea just down the garden..a little paradise. You cross the garden and you are on the beach. Every morning we could just start the day with a swim in the sea. Isn't it perfect? No road, no cars, no other noises that the sound of the waves. And on the left hand side on the beach, the best taverna of Vathy (incredible place with tables on the sand and simple but delicious dishes with local products). The room and the whole hotel were perfectly clean, the staff was very friendly. There is a little shop to buy everything you need for breakfast and lunch.
This place is a dream for families or couples who want to relax in a calm and paradisiac place. Vathy is very cute (specially this part of the beach which is very authentic), but you have to know that it is not very well deserved by buses. They do'nt come often, or very late, so with small kids we had to take the taxi a lot of times when we were visiting/having diner in other villages.

Room Tip: We really loved the rooms downstairs, with a terrace and a direct access to the garden

We stayed here in September for 4 nights in a family apartment upstairs. The apartment was sunny, light, simple and clean and contained a master bedroom with double bed, a small kitchenette / bedroom with twin beds, and a separate bathroom. The apartment also contained a TV (which we never used) and air conditioning. There was a huge deck, complete with table and chairs and stunning views of the bay. The apartment was also serviced each day. The owner and his family were lovely and spoke good English and were able to assist in organizing taxis etc if required. The location itself is simply beautiful - situated on the beachfront of the lovely clean, calm and traffic free Varthy Bay where one only had to wander along the beach in either direction to visit several lovely little tavernas. This beautiful place is very reminiscent of the Greek islands of a bygone era. We loved this place but possibly not for those who like nightlife. This is a place for quiet relaxation and a very good option for families as the bay provides very safe swimming for children.

The price suits its basic room.

Likes
- Right on the beach and crystal clear water
- Not expensive

Dislikes
- Bed was hard and quite small (our room had twin beds)
- Lots of flies (and on the ground floor, they were in the room too). It wasn't very pleasant to have food on the terrace as there would be flies on your food. Perhaps it was hot and not so breezy and there was a restaurant right in front of the hotel on the right side - thus flies came.

Lovely self catering place in Vathy. Stayed for four nights in June. Superb location in a lovely calm bay. Ioannis the owner was lovely and met us on arrival. Hired a car from the port as it worked out cheaper than getting return taxis. Room was clean and the view was to die for. Restaurant next door is run by his brother Marinos and he keeps his own sheep, makes his own wine in the barrel. Loved the wheelbarrow along the beach to get our suitcases to the studio. So peaceful at times you could of heard a pin drop. Had been island hopping with my husband to find the real Greece and this was one of our last stops but it will not be our last visit to these lovely apartments and the lovely island of Sifnos.

Room Tip: We had room 3 on the ground level which was lovely but the rooms on the top floor would be quieter a...

Charming little hotel in Vathy, with very pleasant, competent owners. Restaurant next door to the left is just fantastic and quite reasonable. No deck chairs, and not much to do--except swim in crystal waters and lie on the beach. If touring is not important to you, this is the place! Ditto the other reviews.

Room Tip: they are all good rooms.

Superb location in a vehicle-free village in a stunning bay. Rooms are top value and couldn't be closer to the beach. Apartments with excellent sea-view and in direct sunshine till sunset, when it's time to go fishing.

Restaurant on the left run by Marinos Xanthakis (don't know if he's a relation) clearly the best in the bay. Waiter knows his food well, and was still pleasant and friendly at the end of the season.

We'll be back.

I booked this after reading the reviews here. It really is an amazing place to stay. Our room (3) was large and clean. It had its own kitchen area and, best of all, a large terrace that caught the sun from 11am to 6pm - no need to stagger the full 10 yards to the beach!
John (Ioannis) is very helpful, he will even lend you a wheelbarrow to get your suitcase along the beach to the bus/taxi stop!
This place is perfect for those who enjoy peace and quiet, value for money and are happy with a choice of a few tavernas to eat in and not a lot of nightlife.
Vathi is absolutely beautiful. A perfect crescent shaped bay surrounded by hills. Magnificent location for a holiday.

Thoroughly recommended.
