Hotel Fassolou in Sifnos
SIFNOS, THE ISLAND WITH THE APOLLONIAN LIGHT
Sifnos, is an authentic Cycladic island. This is an alternative destination with rich ancient and modern history, wonderful beaches, green valleys, picturesque trails and typical Cycladic architecture.
In Sifnos, you will find taverns with various traditional dishes (mastello, revithada, pumpkin balls, caper salad, pies, cheese croquettes and more). In the picturesque streets and the beaches of the island, visitors will find lovely bars to chill out. Also, in summer months, various cultural events take place, including painting and sculpture exhibitions, theatrical performances, music concerts, cooking events, pottery exhibitions, open markets with local products or even poetry reading.
Certainly do not miss the famous panigiria, where people dance traditional dances, eat and sing. We suggest you to attend the panigiri that takes place in the Monastery of Chrissopigi in May or June (moveable fest), the panigiri of Agia Marina on July 17th, of Prophet Elias on July 19th, of Katavati and Virgin Mary on August 14th, of Saint Taxiarchis in Vathi on September 5th and the panigiri of the Holy Cross in Fassolou on September 13th.
The most famous local products of Sifnos include caper, honey, wine, xinomytzithra cheese, patties, loukoumia, pastelia, amygdalota and pottery pieces, including clay cookers and decorative items famous all over Greece and in the wider region of the Mediterranean.
In such a rich cultural environment, it is obvious that Sifnos deserves the best as for tourist development, too. The effort to combine tradition with modern life resulted in creating FASSOLOU STUDIOS.
