I asked Santa to bring Summer to Share it with You

The Space

It’s been a few years since Vicky Theodoropoulou, the awarded Greek writer, realised her dream of building a stone house together with a detached guesthouse in the island of Serifos. Surrounded by a fruitful land full of birds, trees, a grape yard and a traditional grape press, the guesthouse offers the ideal accommodation to those looking for relaxed holidays in a quiet and peaceful location.

The accommodation includes one double and one single bed suitable for a child, a fully equipped kitchenette, a private bathroom with shower and last but not least a wind protected terrace with view to the Cycladic nature and the rocky mountains.

The guesthouse offers the ideal accomodation to those looking for relaxing holidays in a quiet and peacefull location situated in walking distance to the port [Livadi] where all the taverns, bars, coffehouses and the market place. From the port there is a bus [every 1/2 hour] for the picturesque Hora [the old town] with the wonderful Cycladic architecture, the tavernes and bars, the souvenir stores in its narrow streets and the traditional old square for nice breakfasts or ouzo drinks and for unforgetable nights just looking at the starry sky. Serifos starrry sky is an experience of a lifetime. From the port there is also a bus to the Megalo Livadi (3/4 of an hour) where there is the iron mine with the nearby beach and two taverns with wonderful home made dishes in very good prices.

Summer time in Serifos is super especially when sheltered inside a cool house surrounded by the invigorating nature. However, at winter time the protection and comfort of a warm and cozy home, is an experience worth living. If you are an artist or a writer, whether you are looking for inspiration or simply searching inside yourself, accompanied by friends or alone, take the chance and venture coming to the island at Winter. You won’t regret it.

Special price for those staying over a 20 day period at the writer’s guesthouse between October and April.

  • It was a beautiful experience our stay in the Guest house of Vici:) It's a fairytale place, clean, cozy and equipped with everything that we needed:) first of all silence, and then the amazing blue sea of Serifos in front of the house. It's a very romantic place, perfect for a couple.
    And Vici is a beautiful woman and person, warmful and always kind and generous and i don't know a lot of words in english, but she really is a beautiful host.
    Hope to see you again Vici.
    Hope to see you again Guest House.
    Hope to see you again Serifos:)
    Big big hug from us.

  • Vici is an absolutely fantastic host, and her house is an absolute dream. I had a gorgeous two weeks in Serifos, but feel like I could have stayed for months. The island is sublime, and Vici's hospitality knows no bound. I couldn't have hoped for a better place to think and write and dream - thank you Vici! I hope to come again. x

  • Spend 3 wonderful days in this absolutely great little guest house! Vici is the best host one can have: both there, when you need her and not there when you want to feel private! Vici really took excellent care of us, both in providing information and practical support. All of her interactions with us, the printed or on-line ones as well as the oral f2f ones, were of the sweatest and most good-hearted nature!
    Her guest house is beautiful, cool even in the warmest hours! Great to return to after a day in the sea and sun. It is one of those places that you want to spend more time in... The location is great! The beaches we visited: amazing.
    Overall this rental is a great alternative to the mostly sterile and often boring rooms found in hotels or "rooms to let": this guest-house has managed to capture and recreate the local color of the island which marries aesthetic simplicity with the beauty of the simplicity of living!
    Can't wait to go back!

  • We enjoyed our stay at Vici's place as we enjoyed Serifos. Actually, her writers home and the island are extraordinary connected in simplicity of the nature, details that are joy for eyes, hospitality and feeling that you are accepted and welcome. The special and secret spice was wonderful teenage female labrador Sarah, with big, strong hugs for us every day before and after exploring the island. Thank you Vici (and of course Sarah) for one of the unforgettable holidays that we have so far.

  • We have been there for a month and a half and it was the greatest holidays ever, although it was so much more than a holiday. I also think we have a clear picture about the place and the surroundings. The house speaks for itself, it is very inviting, cozy and well organized, so beside the fact that it is very tastefully decorated and has a good energy you will find everything you need. Vici is a wonderful host and a very discrete one too and she created a space where you are invited to dream. The whole island fits to the house, and if you want to escape the crowds this is the place to be. Everything else you can read in the description, but it is so much more...

  • Vici's little Studio is just georgous! It has everything which is needed and the typical cyclade style of the house with its pretty decorations gives you the absolute greek-feeling!
    Vici herself is a very enjoyable person. She invited us for a delicious dinner on her terrace with a stunning view over the sea.
    Thanks, Vici, we really enjoyed every minute of our stay. There is only one thing we desliked: our stay was too short...

  • Vicis house was a beauty!
    Vici where very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The house is very cute and we got a countryside feeling indoors and around the house. There was a nice shade right outside the house and it was easy to fell in love with this little place. We travelled with a child and found it necceary to rent a car, it is a bit of a walk to the town. The enviorements where beatiful and the place gave a taste of freedom.
    Thank you Vici.

  • We had a wonderful time at the Writer's Guesthouse. It is beautifully decorated, cosy and very close to the sea. Perfect for a quiet and relaxing break. Vici, the host, is lovely and contributed to us having such a great time. I would recommend this to anyone, and particularly to couples looking for some peaceful timeout. We will definitely be back.

  • Vici has arranged a very nice studio next to her beautiful house. It is built in traditional local stones, with a very Cycladic look.
    It is clean, protected from the wind, and always fresh (which is appreciable in summer!).
    The studio is located 5 minutes walk from the small and nice Karavi beach. There is a very good taverna 5 minutes walk (the other way). And you can reach the Livadi port and the very animated beach of Livadkia within 15 minutes walk.
    We had a very nice stay there. the island is beautiful, the beaches are gorgeous and Vici is so helpful ! She knows everyone on the island (she's been living here for 20 years) and helped us in many ways in organizing our trip.
    That's one of AirBnb bonus : to allow you to meet people!

About
Won an award in Arts and Letters with one of the latter, her Letter from Dublin, a novel (1997). Before then: studies in History, historic missions, historic Sources published and historic stews with Monologues, Articles, Short Stories, Radio Programmes and Luminous Boxes thrown in and served up every now and then in newspapers and magazines, on the radio, at the Benaki on Piraios Street, the ICA in London and elsewhere. The radio programme Fairy Tale Salad went out every day. An hors d’oeuvre oeuvre that had whet the public’s appetite when she served up a second course: a novel, The Survivors, and two travel books, Amsterdam and Southern Morocco, which did their thing in the shop window sans rival of the Atheneaum Boekhandel & Nieuwscentrum in Amsterdam, while Ypsilon Publications whipped the COOKIES out of the oven March 2009. A lover and orchestrator of alchemic situations, she devotes herself to pronouns as well as articles—to the we, me, you, him and them who are helping her set up LUDENS LABS, an outward-looking situation for those who believe art is as serious as play.
