We were lucky to find this, a booking had just been cancelled for a sea facing room.
The font door opened just a few metres from the beach.
The room was a good size, had everything that you could need, the beds were comfortable and everything was immaculate.
Falling asleep was easy as we listened to waves crash into the shore.
It was excellent value and I can't imagine a better deal in the area.
My only negative is that we didn't stay there longer.
It is a wonderful location, heaven, right on the beach. I want to thanks especially to the owners. They are very, very, very smiling , friendly. Everything was super: service, cleanliness, pleasant atmosphere, double room with a fantastic sea view, easy to find, very good breakfast, very good restaurant, Votsalo.
It is a wonderful location, it is much more beautiful than the pictures, if it is possible that. I want to thanks especially to the owners (a very, very nice family) . They are very smiling , friendly, in the limit of common sense. Everything was super: service, cleanliness (every day), pleasant atmosphere, double room on the beach, great atmosphere, easy to find. We had a very good continental breakfast. The beach is sandy, few people on the beach and the water is crystal clear. They have also a restaurant, Votsalo, with plenty of choices and very good prices. We would like to stay here forever and we strongly recommended to everyone how want to have a real Greek island atmosphere.
I've chosen this place together with my boyfriend, because we wanted a place near the sea and we were really attracted by the pictures: the sea seemed just there outside the door. Now I’ve to say that it’s really just like that! This place is really amazing!
I’ve been here the first week of July and I have to say that Sifnos attracts people looking for quiet, relaxed , romantic and/or adventurous vacation (diving/quad/trecking) so unlikely other Greek Islands we didn’t find drunk people or deep house music pumped at high volume on the beaches at the sunset: and that is exactly why a place on the beach in Sifnos was a perfect idea!
I must say that we’ ve really enjoyed the perfect package: sea, sun and sunbeds right in the place we would have put them. To be able to dive, sunbathe, have a cold drink, in such a wonderful place is something truly unique.
Our room was small but very cosy, with a wonderful view on the sea. There were a little fridge, a kettle and a safe. The cleanliness was amazing!
Nevertheless people at Pension Flora are really warm and helpful. Flora is also the name of both the grand mother and the grand child of the family, a sign of continuity of an authentic wonderful greek family who decided to bring the concept of hospitality to whole different level. Really outstanding place and people!
Pension Flora is in the middle of Platis Gialos, in my opinion the most beautiful and quiet sand beach of Sifnos ( off course I’ve visited all of them!). It’s 10 minutes of scooter/car from Apollonia, the central city, and just 3 minutes from Chrisopigi beach (the one with the Sifnos’s signature “Church-with-the-bridge-on-the-sea”) where the diving center of the Island is also located.
I stayed with my girlfriend at the Ismini room: it was cozy and “full optional” (Air conditioning /fridge/wireless/tv/daily room service). The structure is elevated on the sea so there is no humidity at all (this was one of my concerns before booking).
The level of cleanliness of the whole structure is impeccable and rapresents perfectly the attention on the details of the owner, Frank, and his wonderful family.
We had breakfast (included in the price) everyday there, just in front of the sea. Breakfast is good and complete. There is no buffet but you can order eggs with ham and cheese or yogurt with honey and nuts, bread, jam, orange juice and coffee/tea/cappuccino.
Next to Pension Flora there is Votsalo restaurant, own by the same family, probably the best spot for lunch of the beach. The restaurant is specialized in creps and pizza but you will find there also greek classics and amazing desserts, prepared from chef Vangelis who posseses a genuine Greek heritage enriched by a real international background.
If I manage to come back to Sifnos I’ll chose for sure Pension Flora again and again. Higly recommended!!!
