Syros Island

- An Island to fell in love -

About the Island

This is the island where Greek tradition and western influence come to a harmonious marriage. Ermoúpoli (meaning “the city of Hermes”) is the island’s capital town and has been the first important trade and industrial centre of the country in the 19th century.

Evidence of this glorious past can be seen on public buildings (the City Hall, the Customs Office, “Apollo” theatre), on the neoclassical houses and at the beautiful squares. Due to its economic activity, Ermoúpoli has been called “Manchester of Greece” and the history of its years of blossom is exhibited in the Industrial Museum.

This apartment is a spacious immaculate abode well situated for local amenities, the beach and transport into the city. Amazing views from the pretty balcony, and worked great for our 3 year old.


If you want to visit a small quiet and beautiful Greek village, rent Dominic's apartment! Well located, perfectly equipped, impeccable service, clean. I highly recommend it!


The house was beautiful with a breathtaking view. It was very clean with fresh sheets and towels every two days. Ms. Sofia was very friendly and gave us really helpful guidelines on what places we should visit. We definitely want to go again!!
