100 Reviews so far SO good

Das Haus ist mit viel Liebe eingerichtet und bietet alles für einen erholsamen Urlaub. Es fehlt an nichts und Vici ist eine sehr herzliche und zuvorkommende Vermieterin. Ideal für eine Familie mit Liebe zur Natur und griechischer Lebensart. [ Angelika, Klaus, Mateo, Phillip, Antonia, August 2021 at The Writer’s Home]

I can only whole heartedly recommend it! [MARIANNE’s family from Vancouver, Canada, July 2018 at The Writer’s Home]


Amazing in every way.  Vici made me feel very much at home and treated me like an old friend.  Hope to return in June.  Thank you Vici. [PAULINE from Cornwall, UK, April 2018, at The Writer’s Guest-home]

Une maison dans laquelle il fait bon vivre: les photos ne mentent pas et la maison de Vici est agreable, accueillante et bien decoree.  Un veritable plaisir.  Tout est simple et de bon gout.  Serifos se characterise par son caractere authentique et ses nombreuses et belles plages.  Un vehicule est cheudement recommande pour en decouvrir les tresors, et pour simplifier la vie quand on souhaite se rendre en ville.  Bien que la semaine ait ete particulierment venteuse, nous repartons avec de nombreux souvenirs precieux de cette semaine a Serifos.  Merci Vici! [MAGALI’s family from France, August 2017 at  The Writer’s Home]

guests that became friendsThe Writer’s Home is a marvelous house. A real house. A place where you feel welcome, at home, a place authentic filled with the delicacy and charms of our host Vici. We enjoyed every moment of it. The house is has described, quiet and colourful, overlooking the blue sea, and infused with the energy of the land and the sun. it is very well located. 10 min away from the city by car, and at the same time it offers an access to a very nice beach, preserved and quite. There we enjoyed long swims early morning or late evening. We highly recommend Vici’s home for those who want a peaceful retreat in Serifos.

be well we'll meet again
2020 | thank you for being our guests

Nous avons passé 2 semaines de rêve chez Vici. La maison est encore plus charmante que sur les photos. On se sent tout de suite à l’aise, comme à la maison. Idéale en famille, elle se trouve à quelques minutes à pied d’une jolie plage. Merci à Vici pour sa belle présence et nos petits échanges sympathiques.

that’s the spirit
Serifos exceptional and authentic guesthouse
the working desk at the self-contained Guest-home

Viki ci ha accolto al porto e accompagnato a casa. Lo studio è accogliente e anche se piccolino dispone di tutto il necessario. Carino e comodissimo anche il cortile di fronte. La spiaggia vicina (5 minuti a piedi) è molto bella. Le foto sul sito corrispondono esattamente all’appartamento. Viki è stata sempre molto gentile con noi e disponibile ad offrirci dei passaggi in macchina quando andava verso il porto. Ci ha fornito anche molti consigli e informazioni utili. Siamo stati davvero a nostro agio. Consigliatissimo! [CHRISTIAN’s family from Italy, August 2016 at The Writer’s Guest-home]

Hands down the best place we stayed at on our tour of the Cyclades! Vici is the most friendly and welcoming host ever, and her home is absolutely enchanting and so quiet you can sleep with the windows open. The little house is tastefully decorated and well equiped.  The stone walls keep the place so cool we never felt the need for AC, even though it was late July.  Also, the beach close by was one of our favourite on the island, not too crowded and well protected from the wind. Thanks again Vici! We will definitely be coming back! [FLORENCE’s family from France, July 2016 at The Writer’s Guest-home]

exceptional guesthouse, notes from the guests
notes from the guestbook

Nous venons de séjourner chez Vici pendant 9 jours. C’est un lieu paisible ou l’on se sent bien tout de suite. Un endroit tout imprégné de la personnalité de Vici : la conception traditionnelle, la décoration, les petits détails qui ont été mis en place pour vous rendre le séjour agréable . Un vrai plaisir d’être là au frais sans A.C juste grâce à la construction en pierres, à l’abri du vent sous l’auvent , la plage juste à côté, la découverte d’auteurs Grecs, belle petite collection mise à disposition en Français, anglais ou allemand, la présence discrète et attentive de Vici. Une belle parenthèse de sérénité. [AGNES’s family from France, June 2016 at The Writer’s Guest-home]

What a wonderful experience! Vici was the consummate host – she could not have been more accommodating when we needed anything and more respectful of our privacy when we didn’t. The room is basic but has everything you could need for a stressless and simple holiday. It is on a lower level within a traditional stone house so is cool inside no matter how hot it is outside. I was concerned about the lack of air conditioning when I booked but despite the temperature reaching the mid-thirties, I never felt any need of it once indoors. Mosquito covers on the doors and windows meant that we slept like babies fanned by the gentlest of sea breezes. As for the island of Serifos – quiet, beautiful, friendly, idyllic. Can’t recommend it more highly. [SARAH’s family from Edinburg, June 2016 at The Writer’s Guest-home]

Everything positive that we’ve read in the comments left by previous hosts is entirely true and the house is just like in the pictures… or better ! It is charming, impeccable and fresh (wonderful in August!). We couldn’t ask for more. We could hardly believe the beach would be so close and it actually is. Not only was the beach close but it was also our favorite, clean and quiet, even in August. Without a car, we were still able to see many things. Vici is the perfect host! [SYLVIE’s family from Spain, August 2015 at The Writer’s Guest-home]

We had a really great time and Vici’s guesthouse. Vici’s welcome at the port of Serifos felt like if we’d known each other since a long time and The Writer’s Home sweet guesthouse was exactly as described and what we were looking for – lovely, simple, tasteful and perfect for a summer vacation. It met all our expectations and also after visiting a bit of the Island we felt to be in the right location, in a peaceful place, 3 minutes to the beach and still within walking distance from the port. The garden and terrace were perfect for our breakfasts and evening aperitifs. Vici is a lovely person and was always helpful. We felt being treated like friends and not like strangers. We absolutely loved the island and its genuine character, great beaches, crystal clear sea, charming tavernas, beautiful Horta and lively port. Even though it was high season the island was not as crowded as expected and there weren’t many people at the beach close to the guesthouse. Only down part – the time was too short 🙂 We definitely want to come back very soon! [SANDRA & friends from Germany, August 2015 at The Writer’s Guest-home]

Vici was charming and friendly. She greeted us off the ferry at the port, drove us to her lovely guest home and offered a perfect balance of space for us to be in our own little escape and friendly conversation when we met in the garden. The Writer’s Home sweet guest house is a delightful place, full of simplicity and style. We loved having breakfast under the canopy of leaves in the garden and showering outside whilst looking out to the dry hills. We would love to come back one day and dream of Serifos from London. [REBECCA’s family from Britain, July 2015 at The Writer’s Guest-home]

Meme quand le Meltem est déchainé, comme ce fut le cas pendant notre séjour, la maison de Vici est un véritable havre de paix. Un endroit à la fois très simple et très beau, où il fait bon se reposer après une journée a la découverte de Serifos. Petite mais très fonctionnelle la maison a aussi l’avantage de conserver la fraicheur. Le jardin est extraordinaire et la plage se situe à moins de cinq minutes à pied et le port à une quinzaine de minutes de marche. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié Vici, une très belle rencontre! [AUDREY’s family from France, July 2015 at The Writer’s Guest-home]

From the beginning Vici was very helpful and easy to communicate with. At the arrival Vici picked us up by the boat and drove us to our temporary home. The place is beautifully situated on the Island and it is obvious that Vici is taking good care of the house as well as the surrounding garden. The inside temperature of the house was perfect both during night and day and with its tasteful interior it is much more than just a place to sleep. We will definitely recommend Vici’s place! [SOFIE’s family from Denmark, July 2015 at The Writer’s Guest-home]

We had the best holiday in Vici’s Writer Home. Serifos is a special and beautiful island with lovely people and beautiful beaches. Vici is so sweat and helpful. She picked us up at the ferry and shared her garden with us. She gave us onions and yellow zucchinis from her garden, so good. We loved to just spend time on the terrace and walk down to the beach 3 minutes from the house and take a swim, make dinner in the kitchen or walk down to Livadi and eat, or take a nap in the house with open windows so you could hear all the nature sounds. We will love to come back again both for holiday and to work. We have so many good things to say about this island, Vici and her home and will recommend it to everybody. Hope to see you soon again Vici. It really feels like home! [EGE & SARA from Denmark, July 2015 at The Writer’s Guest-home]


Staying in Vici’s guest house was a pleasure and privilege. The place and surroundings are truly unique, and as a host, Vici leaves nothing to wish for. Needless to say, it was very sad to have to leave Serifos and go back to everyday life again! [PETER & EVELINA from Sweden, April 2015 at The Writer’s Guest-home]

Vici’s home in Serifos is amazing. And so is she. And her lovely dog Sarah. We felt at home so quickly and enjoyed not only our cute little studio but all the premises around with terraces, gardens, deck chairs, trees, herbs, outdoor shower (the fresh and natural spring water coming out of the pipes here is sheer bliss and delicious!!) … well, whatever you’d wish for when you are looking for relaxation in pure and beautiful environment. On top of all delights during our stay a super moon was happening and we were able to enjoy it from the rear terrace. Phenomenal moments! Still, with or without super moon the views from Writer’s Home are gorgeous every time of the day. We fully indulged ourselves in the beauty of Serifos, the close by beaches (pretty and secluded Karavi dotted with sand lilies is only 4-5 minutes walk away), the lively harbour, the impressive Chora and everything Vici has offered to us: her friendly care and hospitality, the many inspiring talks we had, her fine sense of humour, her wonderful spot of land. Thank you so much, Vici, for sharing it with us! [SINI and friends from Berlin, September 2014 at The Writer’s Guest-home]

GIOVANNI & VALENTINA, from Spain, August 2014 : El sitio es exactamente como te lo imaginas, una casa en piedra blanca, típica de isla griega, fresquita, muy acogedora. Hay todo lo que pueda servir, y Vici es muy muy disponible por cualquier cosa necesites. Es presente y al mismo tiempo discreta. El sitio está a 15 minutos de camino del puerto, y está arriba de una pequeña colina, a 5 minutos de la playa. Un sitio perfecto para quien quiere estar en la naturaleza sin estar en el pueblo. En fin, si quieres un sitio donde descansar en paz y en comunión con la naturaleza y con tu mismo, esta casa es el ideal ! (y la isla también…)

LLJA & friend, from Germany, July2014 : The writer´s home is just a lovely place. Tasty, natural, cosy and clean. Close enough but not too close to the lively harbor of Livadi. And Serifos is worth a trip anyway. Gorgeous landscapes and a breathtaking views. And last but not least: Paradisial beaches! Vici is a super kind, open minded and interesting person, very helpful but not intrusive at all. We´d love to come back!

DANIEL & friend, from Spain, July 2014 : Nice cottage in one of the most quiet and beautiful island of the Cyclades. It is situated near a wonderful beach (Karavi) and you almost don’t need anything else apart of the amazing sourranding and the intimate beach. It is a short distance from the town (15 minutes walk) and other beaches more crowded like Livadakia (10 minutes walk). Very near (3 minutes walk) there is a traditional tavern (Kabia) with delicious homemade food and a very good treatment (I will miss Alexandros!!!). Don’t worry if you don’t drive or you can’t rent a car. The local bus and the taxi services work quite good and you can visit amazing places like Hora and Agios Sostis beach. Referring to the house, it has been decorated with a traditional style and you feel confortable from first moment you are in. It seems quite small but there you can cook you find everything you need. Don’t miss read or have dinner in the beautiful terrace. The owner, Vici, was very charmed. She was really very kind with us attending our needs. One night we have the opportunity of chatting with her drinking a glass of local wine… It was a real pleasure to have met her and his friend (and Sarah, his dog!). Awesome place!

FRANCESCA & ALICE, from Italy, September 2013 : It was a beautiful experience our stay in the Guest house of Vici:) It’s a fairytale place, clean, cozy and equipped with everything that we needed:) first of all silence, and then the amazing blue sea of Serifos in front of the house. It’s a very romantic place, perfect for a couple. And Vici is a beautiful woman and person, warmful and always kind and generous and i don’t know a lot of words in english, but she really is a beautiful host. Hope to see you again Vici. Hope to see you again Guest House. Hope to see you again Serifos:) Big big hug from us.

SOFIE’s family, from France, August 2013 : La maison de Vici est magnifique de simplicité et de raffinement. C’est en endroit plein de charme et d’ âme à l’image de Vici qui est tres accueillante et chaleureuse. Une belle decouverte, une belle rencontre. Séjourner ici est un vrai bonheur. Hautement recommandé.

then a guest now a good friend

MEGAN, from Britain, August 2013 : Vici is an absolutely fantastic host, and her house is an absolute dream. I had a gorgeous two weeks in Serifos, but feel like I could have stayed for months. The island is sublime, and Vici’s hospitality knows no bound. I couldn’t have hoped for a better place to think and write and dream – thank you Vici! I hope to come again.

ELENI & JOHN, from Greece, August 2013 : Spend 3 wonderful days in this absolutely great little guest house! Vici is the best host one can have: both there, when you need her and not there when you want to feel private! Vici really took excellent care of us, both in providing information and practical support. All of her interactions with us, the printed or on-line ones as well as the oral f2f ones, were of the sweatest and most good-hearted nature! Her guest house is beautiful, cool even in the warmest hours! Great to return to after a day in the sea and sun. It is one of those places that you want to spend more time in… The location is great! The beaches we visited: amazing. Overall this rental is a great alternative to the mostly sterile and often boring rooms found in hotels or “rooms to let”: this guest-house has managed to capture and recreate the local color of the island which marries aesthetic simplicity with the beauty of the simplicity of living! Can’t wait to go back!

ZORANA & PEDJA, from Belgrad, June 2013 : We enjoyed our stay at Vici’s place as we enjoyed Serifos. Actually, her writers home and the island are extraordinary connected in simplicity of the nature, details that are joy for eyes, hospitality and feeling that you are accepted and welcome. The special and secret spice was wonderful teenage female labrador Sarah, with big, strong hugs for us every day before and after exploring the island. Thank you Vici (and of course Sarah) for one of the unforgettable holidays that we have so far.

IOANA’s family, from Romania, September 2012 : We have been there for a month and a half and it was the greatest holidays ever, although it was so much more than a holiday. I also think we have a clear picture about the place and the surroundings. The house speaks for itself, it is very inviting, cozy and well organized, so beside the fact that it is very tastefully decorated and has a good energy you will find everything you need. Vici is a wonderful host and a very discrete one too and she created a space where you are invited to dream. The whole island fits to the house, and if you want to escape the crowds this is the place to be. Everything else you can read in the description, but it is so much more…

let me tell you about our guests

ANNE-SOPHIE & EMILIO, from Switzerland, June 2012 : La maison de Vici est un rêve construit avec amou; elle est entourée d’un magnifique jardin méditerranéen haut en couleurs et en odeurs!!! L’accueil de Vici est aussi chaleureux que le soleil de la Grèce et pour finir Sérifos est une île qui mérite absolument d’être découverte!!! Nous avons passé quinze jours, nous regrettons déjà de n’être pas resté plus longtemps!! Mais nous reviendrons!! Encore merci à Vici pour son accueil et sa disponibilité!!

FRANCOIS’ family, from France, August 2011 : Vici has arranged a very nice studio next to her beautiful house. It is built in traditional local stones, with a very Cycladic look. It is clean, protected from the wind, and always fresh (which is appreciable in summer!). The studio is located 5 minutes walk from the small and nice Karavi beach. There is a very good taverna 5 minutes walk (the other way). And you can reach the Livadi port and the very animated beach of Livadkia within 15 minutes walk. We had a very nice stay there. the island is beautiful, the beaches are gorgeous and Vici is so helpful ! She knows everyone on the island (she’s been living here for 20 years) and helped us in many ways in organizing our trip.
