Vici is born to be a host! From the first messages online to a melancholic fairwell at the port of Serifos we had a wonderful stay in her beautiful studio. Having coffee and a great conversation on her terrace, Vici told us the story of her house (a fantastic architectural work with a modern, spacious floor plan and smart appropriation of local materials and building traditions) and how well Airbnb worked for her.
This family-friendly home is set on a 1.500 square-meters lush landscape by a shady arbor with grape vines, juneberries trees, pomegranate, eucalyptus and olive trees. It provides the residents with a 130-square-meters build separated in two units, the main Home and the Guest-home
Huffpost, July 2016, How a writer built the homeliest Guesthouse on Serifos.The lovely house was a guesthouse, but it was a million miles from the ‘classic’ Greek ‘rooms for rent’. For lack of a better word, it was far more homely than that. In fact, its every little detail filled you with an irresistible desire to visit—and stay there forever.

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.
Long Story Short
Everyone, without a single exception, had a great laugh with my desire to build a small, stone built home and a detached guest-home in Serifos during early 1990s since brick is the easiest material for modern constructions. But it has happened as hoped. It was built by local artisans; with local stone. It was characterized as a prototype house for Cyclades and it was a low budget story that needed much tenacity and loads of personal labor. It has been more than 50 years since a stone house got built on the island, which is a rock in its entity.
The Writer’s Home
Nestled at the foot of the mounthill, a 3min walk down to the sandy beach, set on a lush landscape by a shady arbor with grape vines, juneberries trees, pomegranate, eucalyptus and olive trees, the writer’s home welcomes you to a place of peaceful respite. A real rural escapism overlooking the sailboats in the sea.
The Writer’s Guest-home
It is often called a nest and this was our vision. A 3min walk down to the beach Karavi, next to the lovely little hamlet of Ramos and a 15min walk from the Port. Accommodation includes a very comfortable double bed and a single bed suitable for a child, a fully-equipped kitchenette, a private bathroom with shower, a wind protected terrace
