Smaller Cyclades Islands
The Cyclades Islands number over 30 in total and we also offer a selection of properties in the smaller Cyclades islands which are less touched by mass tourism and offer a unique experience which makes the extra effort to reach them all the more worthwhile.
Amorgos is one of the most impressive Cycladic islands, boasting marvellous beaches with azure waters, gorgeous caves, ideal spots for diving, scenic bays and ancient footpaths leading through its steep rocky terrain…
Built at the centre of the island and surrounded by rocky hills, the maze-like Chora of Amorgos is considered to be one of the most picturesque in the Cyclades! Here you can admire a breathtaking setting with beautiful squares, traditional Cycladic houses with bougainvillea trees in their courtyards and little whitewashed alleys. In the morning you can wander around the narrow streets, visit the 13th century castle and the monasteries or relax at a local coffee shop; in the evening pick one of the cosy bars and tavernas scattered around Chora’s streets and squares and enjoy local specialties.
Koufonisia is the name of two little islands in the Lesser Eastern Cyclades: Ano Koufonisi and Kato Koufonisi are separated from each other by a 200 m. wide narrow strait. Nearby Naxos Island is located east, Amorgos is to be found west.
Ano [or Pano] Koufonisi (meaning Upper Koufonisi) is the only populated island of the two. It is a destination preferred by those who wish to relax on their holidays, in a place with golden-coloured sandy beaches sheltered from the wind, small natural seawater pools with turquoise waters, enchanting natural surroundings, traditional feasting - the local way - and oh-so-fresh fish & seafood dishes. Leave your worries behind and visit this picture-perfect spot of land in the Lesser (or Small) Cyclades, that covers a mere 5.7 sq.km surface. You can explore the entire island on foot, by bicycle or by boat in just 3 hours.
Syros Island combines culture, entertainment and religion in the most harmonious way. It used to be one of the most significant islands in cycladic civilisation. Nowadays, the island is world-renowned for its rich cultural tradition with events that take place in Ermoupolis, the island’s capital.
Azolimnos is a waterside hamlet on the northeast side of the island with a golden sandy beach, the nearest one to Ermoupolis (5km) and among the most famous of the island.
The most renowned village on Syros is by far Posidonia (aka Delagratsia) located 13 km from Ermoupoli. Don’t miss out on seeing the stately neoclassical houses with their manicured gardens - once vacation homes of the wealthiest families on the island.
