Hotel Fassolou in Sifnos
100 metres from Fassolou Studios, on the south western side of Sifnos, there is the lovely and windless beach of Fassolou. At the far left, there is the Cape of Stavros. From the yard of the church of Stavros, you can see the rock of Chrissopigi (monastery and protector of Sifnos) with the cut rock of the cape that is considered a miracle of Virgin Mary. This was a miracle to protect the faithful women of the village from a pirate attack.
The church of Stavros is an idyllic place for wedding. From the yard of this church, you get marvelous view to the Aegean Sea and the sunset.
At a distance of 5 meters from the studios, Mrs Marianthi can supply you with local agricultural products from her garden, eggs, cheese and honey.
Next to the studios, there is the beach of Faros, where you can go by car (500 m) or on foot from a shorter path (150 m). There you can find bus stop, mini market, fish taverns and bar. Next to Faros, there is the fabulous beach of Glifos. At the end of this beach, a paved path leads (10 min lovely foot promenade) to the beach of Chrissopigi (Apokofto).
