A square like an open theatre, an old palm tree, quiet, beauty, art. Old house, completely rebuilt from local masons, worked with respect in traditional techniques and architecture.
A wonderful cottage int be village above Symi port. Very high standard of accommodation and incredibly comfortable. We loved the tranquility and felt very at home immediately. This is high up and so a good walk or taxi ride from the Port! If you want to get away from bustle of Port, this is the place!
This place is really wonderful, it's very clean, comfortable and sitting in the outdoor yard with the BBQ is great. Symi is now our favourite island, we loved every bit (apart from the super yachts which are horrible). Would recommend for sure! However the only small note is it was a little hard to access, even with a car, unless you are young and fit it's a bit of a walk, from the top car park. We had our 3 yr old with us and the walk from Platanos to the harbour is 20 mins, hard in the heat. We found the walk back up too hard to navigate and too hot even in the evening and we are not unfit! The bus goes close but still a uphill walk, we got taxis but they are few and the tend to be hard to book and Finish around 9pm, we were stuck a few times!!! It was all manageable one we got used to however if you are older or unfit or have bad knees it would be impossible! Our overall time their was awesome, loved it!!!!!
The house is spacious, well furnished and equipped, but located on the top of the hill at the edge of the village with very difficult access (more than 100 uneven steps). At arrival we found eggs, bread and water for breakfast (kind gesture) but the A/C on both master bedrooms were not working and couldn't be fixed during our stay.
