They often call it a nest and this was our vision. The intimate hideaway with wifi, surrounded by a lush garden full of berry, olive trees and a private fabulous courtyard. A 3min walk down to the beach. Next to the lovely little hamlet of Ramos, a 15min walk from the Port. The traveler that values the beauty of simplicity and the aesthetic of nature, will experience the uplifting magic of this beloved guest-home, in peace and quiet even during August! One double bed and a single bed.

The space
It’s been more than 25 years since Vicky Theodoropoulou, the awarded Greek writer, realised her dream of building a stone home together with a self-contained guest-home on Serifos. The home and the guest-home offer the ideal accommodation to those looking for relaxed holidays in a quiet and peaceful location even during August.

What does a stay at the Writer’s Guest-home include?
A very comfortable double bed and a single bed suitable for a child, a fully-equipped kitchenette, a private bathroom with shower, a wind protected terrace (great privilege for the windy days) with view to the cycladic nature and the rocky mountains, a fabulous courtyard with a dining table exclusively for the guest-home's guests

Not to forget, clean, fresh-smelling, hand-made cotton bed linen and towels, a desk for working at in peace, books of course in different languages —I encourage my well-read visitors to leave a book or two behind for their successors to read and they’re delighted to do so. Last year, I started stocking up on contemporary Greek literature in translation; I’m interested in getting foreign readers and Greek literature together. Wi-fi everywhere for those who want to combine their holiday with work and keep in touch, a private comfortable courtyard for lazing around in, chatting, reading or study. And last but not least, if luck’s on your side and you’re here at the right time: figs, grapes, pumpkins, pomegranates, mulberries, peppers, tomatoes, aubergines and everything else that grows in our grounds.

How to drift around the island if I do not have a car or a bike?
At the port, where all the bars, coffee houses and the market, there is a bus departing every hour for the picturesque old town [Chora] with the wonderful cycladic architecture, the taverns and bars and the souvenir shops in its narrow streets and the traditional old square for nice breakfasts and unforgettable nights looking at the starry sky. Serifos' starry sky is an experience of a lifetime. At the port you may also take a bus for the southwest side of Serifos [Koutalas, Megalo Livadi] where the iron mines. Mines are a significant part of the history of Serifos. Certain galleries and plants exist still for the traveler to visit

How much time it takes to get to Serifos?
2.30 hrs to get to the island from Athens [Piraeus] by speed boats
4.30 hrs to get to the island from Athens [Piraeus] by the traditional boats

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 national radio, at the Benaki Museum on Piraios Street, the ICA in London and elsewhere. The radio programme Fairy Tale Salad went out every day. An hors d’oeuvre that had whet the public’s appetite when she served up a second course: a novel, "Life worth the candle", (2000), and two travel books, Amsterdam and Southern Morocco, (2001) which did their thing in the shop window sans rival of the Atheneaum Boekhandel & Nieuwscentrum in Amsterdam, while Ypsilon Publications whipped her book 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. During the last years along with her work for her new novel, she works for The Writer's Home & Guest-home in Serifos
