Villa Iris

Light & Bright: Architects' Delight



Villa Iris Symi

This charmingly restored Neo-classical house for 2 is situated at the top of Mavrovouni, one of the hills that forms Symi’s famous amphitheatre harbour and has spectacular views.  Guests can either climb approximately 150 steps up through the tiers of pastel-painted houses from the town square or take advantage of the fact that the accommodation has close vehicle access from behind and hire a scooter or small car.  It is also a relatively level walk along the path from the Mavrovouni car park so although we don’t recommend this house for people with serious mobility problems, it does have better access than many houses lower down the slope.  It is also close to the Drakounta valley and there is a pleasant walk over the hill to Nimborio bay with its peaceful beaches and tavern.

The accommodation is all on one level and very comfortably laid out.  There is a television in the bedroom with a satellite decoder for free-to-air channels.  There is a CD player in the salon.  The bathroom, which is a long vaulted room off the kitchen, is difficult to photograph as it is a combination of natural stone and grey Turkish mosaic tiles.  It has a full size bath tub in addition to a shower, an antique marble washbasin and, concealed behind a curtain, a small washing machine. The kitchen combines style with efficiency and has a small oven in addition to hot plates and a functioning fire place for winter use.  The courtyard and salon have fascinating views of the harbour, perfect for anyone who is interested in Symi’s unique architecture.  This house is ideal for writers, artists, architects and anyone who wants to steep themselves in Symi’s architectural heritage.  It is also perfect for honeymoon couples as it is very private and at the same time only a few minutes from the harbour with all its amenities.

This house is only one tier up from Spiti Grande Helene, making it suitable for additional house party accommodation.
