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 Host

Originally from Athens, Vici disembarked on Serifos in 1980.  She promised herself to meet the locals, get to know them, make this island her place, be a local.  And she pulled it off: Serifos is really her place now and you may easily consider her, a local.  Since 2010, she guides The Writer’s Home & Guest-home to a sustainable place where human contact, homely care and attention to detail are redefining hospitality, and where hospitality is forging connections that link travellers to a place and its people.
