Our second time in Sifnos we arrived without any kind of reservations (like always...), we asked a friend of us, Giorgios Govas, (who many years ago had a pretty nice restaurant beside the pier) about what can we do about it, he told us: "Just wait a minute" and taken the phone, after a short conversation with someone he told us "Your problem is solved, can you see this little house on the other side of the bay? this one with the trees between the door and the sea? well, this is your new home here in Sifnos, just in front of the port of Kamares".
Ten minutes later came a shorty round shaped woman with a nice smile in her lips, and talking to me in greek at the speed of sound told me something like "Just follow me".
After a short ride in an old dusty car we arrived to the other side of the narrow bay, and the modest house was like a palace for us, large rooms, tall windows, extremely clean, full equipped, with a wonderful terrace just over the level of the sea and with three big trees giving us their fresh shadows like a welcome gift.
"Do you like it?" asked the woman.
"Omorfa!" was my answer, meanwhile I was thinking if this greek adjective is possible for a house.
"Endaxi!" she replied with a brightful smile.
Five days in this home was a complete dream for us, enjoying the nights dinning on the terrace under the stars meanwhile the melody of the waves sang for us.
At all, I just remember it was very cheap for us, for those days (1996) was something like 4.500 drachmes per day, more or less 20 dollars (cents more or cent less).
The pic beside shows the view of the house (center of the pic with the trees) from the pier of Kamares. Now, you tell me, isn't it a perfect place?
Unique Qualities: Large bedroom, luminous, with a terrace right on the waves of the Aegean Sea, and a stair to our own micro-pier, in case we had a boat or something.
Address: Kamares Port
Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Just in front of Kamares pier, on the other side of the narrow bay. To find it, (the house is unique) ask in the Touristic Info Office beside the Port Authority Offices. This woman is wellknown, like everyones in Sifnos.
