Welcome to Symi
The Real Symi – the Authentic Greek Destination
Wendy Wilcox of Symi Visitor Accommodation has been helping independent travelers enjoy life’s simple pleasures on the Dodecanese island of Symi since 1997. Far from the high rise hotel resorts of Rhodes, Symi offers more subtle delights for the discerning traveller. Symi’s exquisite neo-classical architecture is protected by the Ministry of Culture and the island’s beautiful natural amphitheatre harbour is one of best in the world. All holiday accommodation is within the community, usually in lovingly restored traditional houses and villas connected by a labyrinth of steps and lanes. This means that your holiday accommodation is unique, as all the houses are individually styled by their owners with many personal touches.
As you can see from the photographs, Symi provides travellers with the opportunity to truly experience life à la Greque. Instead of swimming pools and themed ‘Greek’ nights, Symi offers picturesque and intimate beaches, often only accessible by boat, and evenings in tavernas frequented as much by the locals as by visitors. Whether you choose to dine out in one of the island’s many attractive eateries or to prepare a leisurely meal yourself, you will enjoy the simple superb ingredients for which Greek cuisine is famous. Treat yourself to the luxury of simplicity and experience the charm that brings visitors to Symi year after year.
