    Amazing start to the Islands

    Going back through our pictures of the Greek Islands, realized that our review never got posted which just happened to be one of the best stays of our trip. This trip was in September of 2018 and still remains very vivid. Alexis is one great person and host that goes the extra mile to make you feel special and to ensure that your visit to Syros is a memorable one. Rooms very private,clean, and comfortable. Having breakfast served to you on the patio overlooking the island, downtown, and sea is pretty amazing! Quite tasty and plentiful as well! Alexis will sit down with you and answer any questions you might have about the island or your entire Island hoping experience. We chose to stay away from the heavily tourist islands and chose correctly in making Syros and Wind Tales our first stop! We wish you well in these current tough times.

Attention to detail

    From unique design respecting its location history and nature to stunning views and impeccable service.

    Our host Alexis was very attentive calling us to give us directions and waiting us to greet us in the parking area to giving us secret tips exploring the island. The interior design is thought thoroughly being both stylish and practical. Nice touch the welcome drink upon our arrival so as the limoncello liqueur provided to our fridge throughout our stay.
    Breakfast was of great quality with ingredients coming directly from owner’s own farm.
    Fresh fruit and delicious omelets were the highlight of it. Top asset of the property is the undisturbed privacy between rooms, that means you get a great refreshing sleep! Linen, towels and toiletries of high quality. Last but not least its unbeatable location, in 5’ walk you get to the hype of Ano Syros where you can enjoy a dinner or a drink.

    Thank you Alexis for making our trip to Syros the highlight of our two week trip to Cyclades.

    Will be back x

    Great Views and Delightful Rooms!

    We stayed at Wind Tales for 3 nights this past September and it was delightful. From the adorable rooms, the delicious homemade breakfast, and the great view - we had such a lovely time. Lots of great little details and a truly great spot to call home while exploring Syros. Took me at least two days to figure out the fastest way to get there while meandering through maze-like Anos Syros but I also have a terrible sense of direction.
    Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Syros

Unique experience!

    Everything was so special and amazing at Alexis apartments. We stayed in the Rock bedroom, and yes there is a real rock inside😊.

    Everything was great, the apartment clean comfortable, and cool. Alexis is a great host, breakfast is homemade and Ano Syros is the 'must've place to enjoy spectacular views, delicious food and experience authentic Greek hospitality.

    Don't miss it!

    Stunning location and great hospitality

    Wind Tales is a very special place. We stayed in the ‘Flight’ room which had a stunning private terrace with unparalleled views of the port of Ermoupoli and was furnished to a very high standard in keeping with the age of the building.

    Alexis picked us up from the port and our suitcases were transferred to our room for us. Alexis spent time telling us where all the best places to see and eat are, both in Ano Syros, Ermoupoli and the rest of Syros.

    We were made to feel very special during our stay and there were many thoughtful personal touches provided.

    Breakfast, as mentioned by previous reviewers, was excellent with lovely fresh bread and homemade preserves (we particularly liked the fig jam), along with Greek yoghurt with honey and muesli, plus eggs cooked to order.


We would like to say a big thank you to Alexis, his wife and the team who made our stay perfect.

    Wonderful B&B in Syros!

    My husband and I checked in here for 2 nights this week. The owner picked us up at the ferry and brought us to the hotel. This is such a cute place! We were given some lemonade and then brought to our room. The view was spectacular! It looked down on all of Syros. This was a really cute and comfortable room. The next morning, you go downstairs to order breakfast which is delivered to your room. The only drawback is that it is in Old Syros so it is a 15 minute walk to town. If you feel adventurous, walk back. It is a really good workout. If not, you can take a cab for around 5 Euros. Great hotel. Be sure to stay there in Syros

    Amazing B&B

    We have just spent 2 nights at Wind Tales during a 12-day trip in the Cyclades. This is a gem of a place. The relax room in which we stayed was extremely clean, large and with a huge bathroom. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Having our breakfast on the terrace overlooking Ermoupoli was very pleasant as well. The place as a whole is incredibly nicely decorated with great attention to detail. Alexis warmly welcomed us at the port and provided all information needed on Ermoupoli and Ano Syros, bars, restaurants, sightseeings, etc. He is a true host always making sure your stay is pleasant. Both Ermoupoli and Ano Syros are beautiful. We enjoyed spending the day down in Ermoupoli and the evening in the chilled out atmosphere of Ano Syros

Absolute pleasure

    From the moment we were picked up by Alexis at the port till 7 nights later when we left to go home our stay at the wind tales was great.alexis could not have been more accommodating always available at hand if you needed him but never fussing around to much to become annoying at the end of my stay I actually felt I had made a friend,his advise on places to eat and places to visit was perfect for us and directions for walking ie Kini were perfect Kini is a pleasant 1.5 hours walk yes it is up and down but the views are spectacular.the breakfast was so good that this was the first holiday my wife and I didn’t have lunch for the whole 7 days if there was anything extra you wanted for breakfast the would supply it the next day,Magdalena his young assistant made and served the breakfast beautifully and also cleaned our room each day perfectly.
We had the room they call the flight deck and it lives up to its name with spectacular views many windows to open and let in the breeze.

    There was no safe deposit box in the room which I questioned Alex about and he absolutely guaranteed me my cash and documents would be safe he was right.
I think this hotel is really only suitable for people with no mobility issues as there are many steps and quite steep paths at times but this only adds to the motorised free lovely environment and views in which you are staying in.

    I can’t thank Alexis and Magdalena enough for there hosting skills and will totally recommend people to the wind tales,if I was to come back to syros (we always try different islands) I wouldn’t even look for any other accommodation thanks again peter/Pamela

    Fabulous boutique hotel in old town high above the sea

    Alexis is the kind of person who makes travelling in Greece such a pleasure. He met us off the boat and whisked us up the hill to his stunning white boutique hotel buried in the old town of Ano Syros. He then told us about the places to visit on the island, along with something of the history, and left us with a complimentary bottle of wine from his family's vineyard. We loved the views from the terrace, the generous breakfast (including homemade jams), the meandering streets of the old town and the little restaurants Alexis pointed out. Maybe it's worth noting that you need a car to get to the wild northern part of the island, which is much more authentic and interesting than the busy southern part. We hiked to several deserted beaches where the water was warm enough to swim (at least when you come from Belgium). We honestly couldn't ask for more

    fantastic hotel and location

    We loved this hotel! The owner simply could not be more helpful. We were picked up from the port, dropped off and taken to the hotel. Our bags were delivered to the room shortly afterwards. Remember this is a hotel high up in the town and there are lots of steps, which is fine and makes for great views.


The room is quirky, but quiet, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Its certainly not your normal box room! The bed is built into the rock. Each day the maid placed fresh passion flowers on the window sill, nice touch.

    Breakfast was spectacular, as were the views while we were eating it. Much of it home made from local produce from the owners family farm.

There are also some really great restaurants in walking distance.

    We would definitely stay here again

Couldn't have asked for more!

    Alexis and his team at WindTales provide a wonderfully local, professional and personalised experience. We were very impressed. Alexis went out of his way to share his knowledge of the island and ensure we made the most of the short time we had (organising a scooter, boat excursion, taxis etc). The rooms are all very unique and well designed. The breakfast each morning was more than we could have asked for and enjoying it whilst sitting high above the city taking in the spectacular view was a gift. Highly recommend the location, accommodation and team!

Beautiful View and Wonderful Location

    My friends and I had the pleasure of having Wind Tales to ourselves (we rented all 3 rooms). It was one of the highlights during our visit -Alexis, the owner, took care of us.
    Amazing breakfast every morning overlooking the port and islands, connecting us with local culture (open/outdoor movie cinema) and activities (boating with Niko around the island to some of the most beautiful & remote beaches on the island). 10 Stars!

Best hidden gem on a cliff in a medieval town!

    This is our second year at this phenomenal guesthouse. We take the Flight Room, overlooking the island, port, sea and neighboring islands. Situated within Ano Syro, the old town, we get a great leg workout from the stairs and climbing. It is all worth it as you are spoiled each morning with a local fresh breakfast. Alexis, the owner and manager, made sure everything was taken care of, from local touring info, to locating an available captain for a private tour around the island. When we wanted some local culture, he even showed us the outdoor movie cinema, complete with popcorn and current movies. I'm always happy that we secure this hidden gem, away from people who fear stairs or don't understand how fortunate and lucky they are to be staying in a medieval town. Come on, nothing is better than that

    “Beautiful, Inspired, and Professional”

    The Windtales property is amazing-A private home converted into a perfect hideaway. This place is almost a secret, just knowing about it feels like a privilege! The location, atop a hill in Ano Siros makes for a beautiful adventure every time you step out of the door. Couldn't be a better way to experience Syros and furthermore, Greece. Windtales is in close proximity to great restaurants and tavernas via a great walking path (follow the white stones).

    The room was fantastic, as a matter of fact, the room inspired me to try and replicate the feeling in NYC. Very nice attention to detail, from the bed linens to the decorations. All done tastefully. The bathroom was next level! The service and the amenities is where Windtales really stands out- There is wine from the owners small family farm on the island. Breakfast every morning is light and delicious accompanied by handmade jams from again, the owners family farm. The best part is you get to enjoy it all on the terrace over looking all of Ano Siros. The owner Alexis, and his staff are all very kind and professional. Staying at Windtales feels like you're staying in an old friends private guest house. Comfortable, relaxing, and very beautiful.

    “Wind Tales..just like a fairy ... tale!!”

    Sometimes you don't need much time to appreciate a place or a person!
    This is what happened with Wind Tales and Alexis (the owner) !

    Syros is a "home" for us and this time we decided to spend (unfortunately only) one night at Ano Syros just to relax (a bit more!)....

    We arrived to this amazing small guesthouse to realise that this was the "escape" that we needed! Alexis was there to give us all the important information needed . And even if we know Syros really well, his tips were more than usefull.

    Our room (The Rock) OMG.... no further comments have to be added... the absolute relaxing ambience.... the breakfast, homemade and served with attention and love!
    There is also a small bar , where some delicious cocktails are offered during the afternoon! Just drink and enjoy the endless view............

    What more can I say...?? It is like everything there is "covered" with stadust!

    We decided to spend some days every year at Wind Tales... enjoying the positive energy of this great place and people!

    Thank you for everything!

    “A little bit of Greek paradise!”

    Alexis is the perfect host. He welcomed us warmly into his beautiful guesthouse and our stay was magical from beginning to end. We were picked up from the port (for free) and shown to our fantastic room despite us arriving a little before check-in time. The rooms are magical and Alexis' attention to detail is what really makes the stay special. From the comfortable pillows to the fresh flowers daily, the rooms have everything you need. The whole guesthouse is stylishly decorated with a relaxing and romantic atmosphere. Breakfast on the terrace was undoubtedly the highlight of the stay. The view over Ermoupoli from the terrace is breath taking and all the fruits come fresh from Alexis' Dad's farm. It was definitely the best breakfast we had during our whole 3 week stay around the Cyclades. The breakfast staff were fantastic, really friendly and helpful. We also thoroughly enjoyed Alexis' cocktails on an evening and the terrace was equally as beautiful and peaceful on an evening. We were also pleased with the location as it is up the hill, away from the main town but only a 4 euro taxi journey in or 12 euros to the beaches. Wind Tales is a unique little gem, which is hidden away among the twisting streets of Ano Syros. It is a place of tranquility, luxury and indulgence and we definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Syros.
    Room Tip: We happened to stay in both 'The Rock' and 'Relax' and Relax was our preferred room...

    “Unique experience” 

    We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights spent at Wind Tales earlier this month. This is a unique and intimate guest house in a stunning location. As others have mentioned, the owner Alexis is extremely attentive and was there to meet us at the ferry port (very helpful as the house is almost impossible to find in the car-free maze of Ano Syros). Alexis gave us useful advice about the town of Ermopouli and the rest of the island and was happy to make arrangements for car rental etc.
    Breakfast was outstanding and included home-made jams, marmalade and other treats from the farm of Alexis' family in the north of Syros. We also enjoyed little treats such as limoncello and wine that were left in our fridge.
    Syros was our first taste of the Greek Islands and our experience of Wind Tales and Ano Syros helped make it an unforgettable experien

    “Amazing visit, amazing host and staff”

    My wife and I are still in awe over our 4 night stay at Wind Tales with Alexis and his assistant, Madelina. Alexis was unbelievably warm and helpful from our arrival on the ferry until our departure. Thank God he met us and brought us to his wonderful hotel in Ano Syra since we would never have found Wind Tales on our own. It is tucked high on the hill and in the midst of the narrow walking streets within the ancient city. Our room was delightful with a wonderful terrace overlooking Hermoupolis and the Aegean. Madelina served us an outstanding breakfast each morning featuring jams made fresh by Alexis's mother.

    Alexis was extremely helpful in offering suggestions on how best to enjoy our stay on Syros. He hunted up a doctor when I developed the need for one and went well out of his way finding items that we needed to purchase in Hermoupolis.

    We simply can not say enough about how wonderfully we were treated. Five stars does not say enough.

    “Views & Host - TRULY WONDERFUL!!!!!”

    We stayed for 2 nights in the Relax room, the bathroom was the highlight - Ancient Greece with modern comforts - we loved it, Alexis couldn't be more helpful, he offered countless suggestions and a extremely peaceful atmosphere - from our first encounter (a pick up from the Port), he called restaurants, taxi's, and even gifted us with his mothers homemade marmalade - he oozes kindness and sincerity, highly recommend a stay in this off the beaten track beauty.

    “Exceptional by every standard”

    What a wonderful, inspiring location. The same must be said about the superior room with the panoramic view of half the Cyclades. Superbly laid out, it shows that the host, Alex, has clearly thought of every detail and has implemented it in the most elegant, traditional and environmentally friendly manner at the same time. Especially the bathroom is other-wordly. Alex was welcoming and eager to address every need. Especially, his suggestions on where to eat were all spot on. His staff were also excellent. The breakfast was superb. A mix of modern and traditional. Almost all home-made. For example, the jam was made by Alex's mother.
    Room Tip: The superior room has spectacular views, and they bring your breakfast to your veranda.

    “Wonderful !”

    We had a fantastic time at Wind Tales !
    First of all, the facility is perfect, our room was stunning, bathroom was huge and decorated with taste.
    Every morning, we had breakfast with an amazing view on Syros and the sea. Wind tales is a really relaxing place, a bubble !
    Last but not least, Alexis the owner and his staff were amazing. Very efficient, suggesting the best places to have dinner, to go the beach. He made reservations for us for dinners, for windsurf and diving lessons etc... Actually you get the service of a five stars hotel in a family atmosphere.
    We can't wait to go back ! Many thanks to Alexis and Antonella.

    I loved Wind Tales. It's perched high in a historic medieval town with beautiful views of the bay. We enjoyed the beautiful terrace where you can have breakfast or a cocktail in the afternoon. The lobby and the rooms are charming, cozy and super clean. The owner, Alex, is so friendly and happy to help with directions, activities, restaurants, etc. They source a lot of local foods and press their own fresh juices. Ask Alex about his homemade wine!

    “Special in every way”

    I have hesitated to write a review because I would like Wind Tales to be a secret, or at least exclusive! What it offers is special in every way. We spent 6 nights in August 2015, and Alexis ensured that we had a perfect holiday. Cordiality and warmth balanced with privacy, the stunning views and generous breakfasts, and just the delight of it, conjure up the most wonderful memories. We will return.

    This was our second trip to Syros island.
    We had the chance to stay in both “The Rock” and “The Flight” room and they were beyond our expectations. They emitted warmth and tranquility with a distinctive and pleasant scent of lavender filling the air.
    The rooms were very clean, cozy, elegantly decorated and equipped with everything one needs to make his/her vacation comfortable.
    The Flight room provides a private balcony from which the view is unique. But every room has a common space with the same view. There, is the place where the breakfast is also served. Oh! The breakfast; our favorite time of the day! It included delicious home-made marmalades, fresh yogurt and other local goods. If you eat cold cuts then you MUST try looza. Ask Alexis about it!
    Alexis made us feel like home, he was always willing to keep us satisfied and provide us information on anything considering the island.
    The days we spent in Wind Tales will surely be unforgettable!

    “Birthday surprise”

    While I was on holiday in Syros I booked a one night stay at Wind Tales bed and breakfast as a surprise for my husband birthday. We stayed in the rock room which was very different and very different experience. Alexis the owner could not have been nicer and played along when he collected us from the port with the surprise. The view from up there is just wow. Breakfast the following morning was served on the terrace and was wonderful , everything fresh,homemade jams honey etc. We would certainly stay again.

    “Superb petite B&B”

    A wonderful B&B with only three rooms to choose from. Only one has a private terrace (Flight) but you don't need one to enjoy the magnificent view that opens up from the huge shared terrace. You can enjoy your breakfast or evening cocktails on the terrace (or watch sunrise or the moon rising... we saw the rare red full moon!).

    Attention to detail is paid (a welcome drink, homemade wine in the fridge, a candle burning in the shower...) and the breakfast is wonderful: bread, homemade jams, fresh juice, coffee, yogurt and muesli, eggs...

    There isn't really anything to do the in Ano Syros apart from walking up and down the stairs and visiting the Catholic church and the tiny museum of Markos Vamvakaris, but who needs activities when you can simply take in the view. Don't just run around the island, but take time to relax n Ano Syros abd the Wind Tales (a taxi to Ermoupolis takes 5 minutes and costs 5 €).

    The place is absolutely amazing! It has the most wonderful view of the island! The whole house is a gem, very well decorated as well as the rooms! We were lucky enough to stay in both "Relax" and "Rock" rooms, each one unique on its own way! The breakfast served in the terrace is home made and delicious and the view is breath taking! The host, Alexis is very kind, helpful and took really good care of us..as well as Flora :) We strongly recommend Wind tales and we would definetly come back next time we visit Syros! Discover the little details that makes this place dreamy!!!

    “Amazing view, friendly staff, luxurious rooms - A MUST STAY”

    I visited Windtales in September with my companion. We had an amazing time! The owner Alexis and the rest of the staff are friendly, accommodating, professional and will give you all the information you would like to know when visiting a place for the first time. The breakfast (consisting of traditional, local greek delicacies) is served on the balcony viewing Ermoupolis and the sea. The view is exceptional during the day but also at nighttime. What drove me to write this review is the attention to detail paid in the design, maintenance and service to customers. I would absolutely stay again there!

    “Wind Tales, Ano Syros and Ermoupoli - A truly amazing and awe-inspiring place”

    We spent three (all too brief) nights here in September, mid-way through our month in the Cyclades, and we can honestly say that this is the most unique accommodation we have ever stayed in.

    After exchanging emails, we were met at the port by Alexis and Dimitri, who made us feel very welcome immediately, before we were driven up (and up and up!) to Ano Syros. Alexis is a mine of information and didn’t stop talking and pointing things out on the way up; and on arrival in the parking area, our bags were transported speedily through the twisting, tiny streets to our room by Dimitri.

    Ano Syros is a delightful maze of alleyways and steps, and (unless you have the recollective powers of a superhuman) you will lose your way at least a couple of times. It is a case of remembering the small landmarks: “Turn left at the statue, go down the steps, walk on until the door sign with the yacht…..go up the steps” etc. There are some tavernas and a few cafes, bars and shops, but it’s a very quiet and peaceful generally; and from up here you feel like you are in a different place altogether, on top of the world and cut off blissfully from reality.

    After being shown our room, we were given a brief talk by Alexis and given a map. It was important to pay heed here, as his tips and recommendations were proved to be very accurate and true; however, it was very difficult to concentrate when confronted with the amazing view from the terrace.

    Many reviewers have commented on the “Rock” room and we share their opinions - it is incredible. The room was decorated with perfect taste, and all of the fixtures and fittings complemented the room perfectly with just the correct degree of “quirkiness”. Much thought has obviously gone into the small details. We liked the travel trunk table in particular, and the enormous “helicopter blade” ceiling fan that looks like it will be noisy and cause a hurricane in the room, but in fact is totally silent and very effective. There are numerous options with the lighting, such as the small lamp in an alcove which adds yet more romance to this fabulous room. Small touches, such as bunches of lavender on the bed, and a beautiful rose left in a glass for our return one day added to this feeling.

    The bed on the rock looked like it may be a bit uncomfortable from the pictures we had seen on the website, but I can say that this is not the case. There is a triple-layer of mattress and it is supremely comfortable, and there are plenty of pillows (some are coco-mat) and high-quality bed linen, so you can arrange it to your personal preference. All of this meant we slept, if you forgive the pun, like a rock. The rock continues on into the bathroom, and gives you the impression that you are having a shower in a cave – a luxury cave with good bath products and high-quality towels.

    You are given a separate key which gives access to the beautiful lounge area, where there are many interesting books in different languages to choose from; and this room leads to the spectacular terrace, where breakfast is served - and what a breakfast: Coffee, delicious bread, yogurt with honey and muesli, boiled eggs, a very tasty home-cured ham, tomatoes with feta, grapes and home-made orange and fig marmalades and a home-made fruit juice of our choice And all served at what is a very civilised time for “night owls”, and this certainly set us up for the day.

    Whilst there was no direct view from our room, it was so easy to just walk through the door to the front of the property, or through the lounge to the terrace and be presented with a fabulous view of Ermoupoli below, with the port and the very blue Aegean and the islands beyond seeming to float in the air. Yes, it is a communal terrace, but so what? It is huge, and there will only be a maximum of a few others others sharing it with you, although we only saw one other person on it during our stay. Not that it was a problem for us at all, as we are sociable animals. At night, it is incredibly romantic as the lights of the town come on down below, and the stars become visible overhead. You could easily sit here all day and night, watching the ferries come and go and contemplating the meaning of life; but then you would miss out on the delights of the town….

    By day, you can wander around Ermoupoli (it’s a nice stroll down from Ano Syros) admiring the handsome neo-classical buildings – many of which have been restored and others which are distressed and crumbling somewhat, giving great character to the place (memories of past glories and all that); or maybe have a look inside the Apollon theatre which is modelled on La Scala opera house or the impressive town hall in the huge main square, visit the numerous churches with their priceless treasures and icons; or have lunch or a drink at a harbourside cafe after a swim off of one of the platforms (the view from here is gorgeous) in the beautiful area of Vaporia, which they call “Little Venice”. At night, like so many places in this wonderful country, the city “comes alive” and there more than enough shops, bars and restaurants to keep you occupied. We found the standard of these places to be high, and the prices to be more than reasonable. If you are lucky, you can witness a performance at the theatre, or a movie in the open-air cinema, however, we have saved some of these treats for return visits – we are sure there will be many! You could easily spend a week in Ermoupoli and not get bored - it is interesting and lively and it will surprise you.

    Everyone we met was friendly and helpful, and all seemed to be proud of their island and its capital; and so they should be – it is a truly marvellous place and a perfect contrast to the other Cycladic isles. It is not at all “touristy” although we found the level of information provided to visitors to be excellent. We had heard that Ermoupoli suffers from a problem with graffiti defacing the public buildings – if this was the case before, then it certainly is not true now, as we saw very little of this during our exploration. We fell in love with this place as soon as we saw the fantastic vista from our ferry as it approached the island, and departed feeling the same way, but also very sad to leave.

    We cannot recommend the accommodation and the surrounding areas highly enough. Wind Tales is a perfect place to stay in the tranquillity of Ano Syros with the hustle and bustle of Ermoupoli below, and it was worth every penny. Thank you Alexis and your staff.

    “Best place in Syros”

    Breathtaking! This place is amazing and we highly recommend Wind Tales to anyone visiting Syros. The room was beautiful, clean and I've never slept on such a comfortable bed with the best linen. The host was awesome, gave us all the information we needed and he is really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and made from local ingredients. The owner really goes out of his way to make you feel at home and enjoy Syros. We are really glad we found wind tales and will definitely be back. In the room we got local wine and liqueur as well as all the toiletries we needed. Wish I could give this a 11 out of 10.

    “The first place we will call before scheduling flights to Greece.”

    My husband and I had the great fortune of finding Wind Tales, at the end of our week long sailing charter in the Cyclades. We took a ferry over to Syros for 2 nights at Alex's hotel.

    We were met by 2 of his friends who were waiting for us at the ferry, they were warm and welcoming and after car transport, walked us up the winding streets to WindTales, which sits pirched on the top of Ano Syros and is reached only by small walking streets. The rooms are built into the rock of the mountain, are stunningly beautiful and naturally designed for a cool breeze and a lovely view of the sunrise on your personal veranda overlooking the port. The staff was more than gracious, friendly, and kind, even delivering us to the airport in time for our flight back to Athens.

    The room, veranda, shower and common space were emaculate and beautiful with thoughtful touches for our comfort. The breakfast was by far the best bed and breakfast fare I have had, including homemade grape juice from their vinyard, tomato juice from their garden and figs from their trees. We also sipped wine from their vinyard on our veranda as we unwound from the day.
    We did take full advantage of Alex's other business, his windsurfing camp, with excellent equipment and very economical rates on a little hideaway of a beach.

    We couldn't think of a better way to end a trip to Greece, and have decided that Wind Tales will be the first reservation we make if we every get back here, and plane tickets will be the second reservation.

    Thank you to all the support staff and ownership of this very well maintained, toughtful and one of a kind lodging.

    Μία μοναδική εμπειρία διακοπών!!!

    Είχαμε την τύχη να φιλοξενηθούμε σε ένα από τα υπέροχα δωμάτια του Wind Tales. Από την πρώτη στιγμή της άφιξής μας, ο Αλέξης και οι συνεργάτες του μας έκαναν να αισθανθούμε σαν φίλοι τους. Η μοναδική θέα από τη βεράντα μας καθώς και το υπέροχο δωμάτιο, μας έκαναν να θέλουμε να αφήσουμε στην άκρη την περιήγησή μας στην όμορφη Σύρο και να μείνουμε εκεί, καθ όλη τη διάρκεια των διακοπών μας!
    Το δωμάτιό μας ήταν πανέμορφο, πεντακάθαρο και παντού υπήρχαν μυρωδιές από λεβάντα και φρέσκα λουλούδια. Το πρωί απολαύσαμε, ένα χειροποίητο και πεντανόστιμο πρωινό!! Με λίγα λόγια;;; Μετράω αντίστροφα μέχρι να ξαναπάω!!!

    Ειχαμε την τύχη να φιλοξενηθούμε σε 2 απο τα 3 δωμάτια του wind tales...στο flight και στο rock! Και τα 2 απο τα πιο όμορφα δωμάτια που εχουμε ποτε παει σε νησί! Το flight πολυ όμορφο ευρύχωρο κ ενα τεραςτιο μπαλκόνι με θέα εκπληκτική και το rock, μικρο μεν, αλλα πραγματικα ειναι οτι πιο ιδιαίτερο μπορεις να συναντήσεις! Ιδιαίτερης μνείας αξίζει το οτι τα 2 δωμάτια που δεν εχουν μπαλκόνι...εχουν "αποκλειστικη" πρόσβαση στο μπαλκόνι του wind tales το οποίο εχει 4 διαφορετικούς χώρους (ολοι με θέα εκπληκτική). Πρωινο παρα πολυ ωραίο, απλα για εμας που μείναμε 4 βραδια...λιγο το βαρεθήκαμε. Τελος η εξυπηρέτηση ειναι παρα πολυ καλη κ ο ιδιοκτήτης (Αλέξης) σε βοηθάει σε οτι μπορεις να χρειαστείς κ για τη διαμονή κ για τη Σύρο γενικότερα! Ευχαριστουμε Αλέξη για την εμπειρία...

    Η διαμονή θα μείνει αξέχαστη. Η τοποθεσία των δωματίων είναι στο καλύτερο σημείο της Σύρου με απίστευτη θέα στον κόλπο της Ερμούπολής που κόβει την ανάσα. Εξαιρετική και επαγγελματική εξυπηρέτηση. Δωμάτια απόλυτα καθαρά και συνεχώς τακτοποιημένα. Πρωινό με παραδοσιακά χειροποίητα προϊόντα (σπιτικές μαρμελάδες, λεμονάδα και χυμός σταφύλι!!!!!!, φρέσκοι χυμοί) απολαμβάνοντας την απίστευτη θέα. Διακόσμηση που σπάνια βρίσκει κανείς επιμελημένη με γούστο και μεράκι.
    Προτείνω ανεπιφύλακτα την διαμονή στο δωμάτιο με τον φυσικό βράχο που είναι σκαλισμένο από γλύπτη, ενώ ο ύπνος στο κρεβάτι "βράχο" είναι μοναδικός....
    Οι απόλυτες συνθήκες για να ξεκουραστεί και να ξεφύγει κανείς από την καθημερινότητα.

    15 Aug 2015

    H λέξη "μοναδικό" αποδίδει επαρκώς αυτό το κατάλυμα! Προφανώς αυτό το διαμέρισμα δεν σχεδιάστηκε-υλοποιήθηκε για ενοικίαση.Αυτό συνέβη εκ των υστέρων. Καταπληκτική εσωτερική σχεδίαση και διακόσμηση με εξαιρετικά art crafts. Η Αντονέλλα και ο Αλέξης νοιώθεις ότι σε τιμούν με την παρουσία τους. Εξαιρετικό service-καθαριότητα-πρωϊνό,περιποίηση σαν χάδι. Ιδιαίτερες πινελιές με αρώματα και χρώματα λεβάντας και θυμαριού και γεύσεις(πρωϊνό) που σου φέρνουν θύμισες από άλλες εποχές.Η θέα μαγευτική και η ησυχία του μέρους σε βοηθά να χαλαρώσεις.Προτείνουμε για το απόγευμα κοκτέιλ που φτιάχνει ο Αλέξης στην αυλή συνοδεία ιδιαίτερης μουσικής.
    Θέλουμε πολύ να επαναλάβουμε την εμπειρία!

    Εξαιρετική τοποθεσία με την καλύτερη θέα στην Σύρο. Πεντακάθαρα δωμάτια με γούστο και ανέσεις για καλό ύπνο. Ο Αλέξης πάντα εξυπηρετικός, παρείχε τις καλύτερες πληροφορίες για όλο το νησί: φαγητό, παραλίες, αξιοθέατα, ντόπια προιοντα. Οι συνεργάτες του πάντα ευγενικοί.

    Πανέμορφος ξενώνας στην 'Ανω Σύρο, μειναμε πολύ ευχαριστημενοι από το δωμάτιο, τις ανέσεις και την εξυπηρέτηση. Τα δωμάτια έχουν καταπληκτική θέα προς το λιμάνι, αξίζει το πρωινό ξύπνημα να δειτε την ανατολή του ήλιου!

    ΚΩΣΤΑΣ - ΑΘΗΝΑ: Ηταν ένα υπέροχο τριήμερο σε έναν εξαιρετικό ξενώνα. Το Wind tales είναι ένα σύγχρονο και συνάμα παραδοσιακό κατάλυμα που δένει αρμονικά με την μοναδική αρχιτεκτονική της Σύρου. Ο ξενώνας ξεχωρίζει για την καθαριότητα του, την αισθητική ιδιαιτερότητα του και γενικότερα για τις ανέσεις που προσφέρει. Είναι ιδανικός χώρος για χαλάρωση και ηρεμία.
    Ευρύχωρο δωμάτιο και μπάνιο-εκπληξη.
    όσον αφορά τον Αλέξανδρο, ιδιοκτήτη του ξενοδοχείου, απλά άψογος σε ολα του. Εγινε φίλος μας. Και μια λεπτομέρεια. Το Wifi λειτουργεί άψογα.
    Το Wind Tales το συστήνουμε ανεπιφύλακτα.

    Πανέμορφος ξενώνας στο πιο ωραίο σημείο της Σύρου. Τοποθετημένος μέσα στο κάστρο και τα σοκάκια της Άνω Σύρου, έχει μαγευτική θέα και προσφέρει ησυχία και ηρεμία στην ιδιωτική του αυλή όπου απολαμβάνεις και το υπέροχο ντόπιο πρωινό σου με θέα όλο το νησί από ψηλά. Είναι προσεγμένος από το πιο σημαντικό μέχρι και την τελευταία λεπτομέρεια - δείγμα της κουλτούρας του ιδιοκτήτη του.
    Εξαιρετική η φροντίδα από το προσωπικό του ξενώνα - μέχρι και φρέσκα λουλούδια υπήρχαν κάθε πρωί στο δωμάτιο.
    Μείναμε στο δωμάτιο "relax" του οποίου το μπάνιο ήταν ανεπανάληπτο.
    Σίγουρα θα τα ξαναπούμε σύντομα!

    Best stay in Greece

    Incredible place to stay during your trip in Syros. Very very beautiful hotel. It is an old renovated house with a lot of beautiful details. They prepare an incredible breakfast and they bring you direct to your room. The staff is very friendly and the communication with the boss by telephone was perfect. The town and the surroundings are very beautiful. We got an upgrade because of the low-season week in October. It was the best room we got in our entire trip to Greece. Absolutely I recommend this place.

  • PATRICK, fr1020 May 2019

    Lieu et accueil exceptionnel !

    Le confort de la chambre, la vue exceptionnelle, le petit déjeuner délicieux, la gentillesse et la disponibilité de notre hôte. L’accès n’est pas difficile, le taxi vous dépose pour 6€ à 5mn du logement ou l’on vous attend pour vous guider. Ok, il faut ensuite porter les sacs , mais ça vaut largement le coup, vous serez récompensé de ce petit effort. Une taverne se trouve également tout près du logement. Descendre à pied jusqu’au port n’est pas compliqué, remonter est un peu plus sportif, mais en prenant son temps, c est tout à fait faisable (et nous ne sommes pas sportifs !). Bref, ne soyez pas effrayé par la localisation, ce lieu est juste magique

  • Lucille, fr1018 Jul 2018

    Un lieu incroyable ! A ne pas manquer

    L’hôtel est superbe, quel accueil et quelle vue !!! Construit au creux de la roche de Ano Siros, la décoration cycladique donne une atmosphère qui fait voyager. Nous avions la chambre avec terrasse privée sur laquelle nous prenions notre petit déjeuner avec une vue à couper le souffle !!! La chambre était très confortable et très jolie. Nous avons eu du mal à quitter les lieux. Le petit déjeuner était vraiment délicieux, complet, fait avec des produits frais. Rien ne manquait. La localisation est très pratique pour parcourir toute l’île. Et pour couronner le tout, un service irréprochable. Alexis avait tout organisé pour notre arrivée : la location de notre voiture, le chemin, la personne qui est venue nous chercher. Et même si absent il a tenu à nous appeler pour s’assurer que tout nous plaisait. Il a été de très bon conseil pour les différentes activités. Bref, c’est un sans faute ! Choisissez le Wind Tales les yeux fermés pour un séjour romantique à Syros.

  • eric, fr1028 Jun 2017

    A beautful place run by amazing people! Best option in Ermopoulis!

    Alexis and Christina have been amazing during our short stay. The place is just superb. Amazing view on Ermopoulis, the bay and the other islands (Tinos, Mykonos..) The decoration is tasteful and reflect the rich history of Syros. The breaksfast was delicious with homemade products mandarine & figs jams and olives or fruits from Alexis's farm! Korres products in the bathroom for shower, shampoo etc! And Alexis spent time to give us advices on places to check in Syros. We will come back for sure!

  • Στελλίνα Τζι Ελ, gr1028 Aug 2017

    First time in Wind Tales, first time in Syros and certainly not the last!!! Very nice location, fantastic view and great aesthetic in the place!! Thank you very much Alexi for your hospitality and very important tips for the island!!! He beat us and we hope to be back soon!

  • Aikaterini, ch1022 Jun 2017

    Comme à la maison en mieux!

    L’emplacement, l’accueil très chaleureux des propriétaires, l’attention portée au client pour qu’il passe un séjour merveilleux, les conseils avisés, le soin porté aux details ds les chambres. On s’y sent comme à la maison

  • Katherine, gb1011 Apr 2017

    Best B&B!

    Alexis was an amazing host! He helped coordinate an automatic car (which wasn’t easy at this time of year), and scuba diving, along with telling us all about the island and helping us figure out where to go and what to do! One of the many restaurants he recommended was Avant Garden in Hermoupolis, which was absolutely stellar. A bit pricey, but worth every cent! The breakfast was spectacular as well, and the view was stunning. I just wish we could have purchased some of the jams and limoncello when we left! Overall, nothing short of a perfect stay

  • Gareth, gb102 Nov 2017

    Unique and beautiful boutique hotel

    A great location with stunning views. The room was very spacious with its own balcony to sit and admire the view and the bed was huge and very comfortable. Our host Alexis was fantastic and suggested the perfect itinerary for our short stay in Syros. Wind Tales is a real find

  • Cheryl, gb1020 May 2017

    Dreamy and beautiful guesthouse

    The guesthouse was beautiful and the room design was unique. The view from the veranda where we had our breakfast was stunning. The breakfast was also delicious, we had fresh fruits from the fig tree. Ano Syros is a cute village which becomes alive at nights. Alexis took the time to tell us all the places to visit 8n Syros. This place is so dreamy. Definitely one of the best places I have stayed!!

  • Andrew, us1013 Sep 2017

    Incredible view, beautiful rooms and bathtub, hosts picked us up from the port, drew us a map and even gave us some light reading books on history of Syros and Ermoupoli when we asked about it. Breakfast each morning looking out at the port was delicious and beautiful, walking through Ano Syros felt down to the tourist areas in Ermoupoli was one of our favorite parts of the day (10-15 mins downhill). A really beautiful spot, really glad we picked Ano Syros to stay in rather than Ermoupoli, it was a quiet and more relaxed perch in a beautiful room at Wind Tales, would absolutely go again.

  • Christiana, gr102 Aug 2017

    Heaven is a place on earth

    The view of the Aegean, the moon and sun rise, the smell of wood and freshness, the Medieval aura, the lovely staff, the vintage decoration, the local taste and all the small details... make THE difference. “When you leave a beautiful place, you carry it with you wherever you go.” Windtales has definitely gained a place in my memory travel pouch

  • Michael, ie1026 Apr 2016

    Great hotel in a really unique location

    We had a great experience throughout and the hotel is in a really unique setting. Our very kind host collected us from our previous hotel on the other side of the island and made sure we were happy and comfortable at all times. We had a delicious breakfast every morning on our own balcony with an incredible view of Ermoupolis. The rooms were spotless and in great condition

  • Lucas, ch1018 Jun 2016

    Le lieu est magnifique, l'atmosphère qui règne au sein de l'établissement est génial. Notre hôte, Alexis, nous a fourni beaucoup de conseils très avisés ne serait-ce que pour trouver des bons restaurants traditionnels. De plus, dû aux conditions météo, notre bateau a été annulé et nous avons dû rester sur Syros 1 jour de plus que prévu. Alexis, n'ayant plus de place dans son hôtel pour une nuit complémentaire, nous a trouvé des solutions afin de palier à ce contretemps. Un vrai service de qualité. PS: le petit-déjeuner et le limoncello maison à tomber.

  • Tamara, au102 Oct 2017

    Unique, relaxing boutique with amazing views

    This is a beautifully appointed small hotel up in the medieval district of Ano Syros in Ermoupoli. The views look down over the city to the port and you can see Mykonos and Tinos from the private balconies. Breakfast consists of home made jams, crusty loaf, eggs of your choice, yoghurt, freshly squeezed juice and variety of coffee. Alexei and his staff are helpful and friendly and gave us some great tips for exploring and dining on the island. They offered us a pickup from the port, a selection of wines and beers to help ourselves to in the lounge, a very tasty home made limoncello bottle in our room, nice quality toiletries and one of the most comfortable beds we’ve slept in. The old town location is really nice, tavernas and small shops are nearby and the walk down to town was surprisingly easy. We rented a car so drove back up, there are a lot of steps but the distance is not far. Don’t be put off by the access as you can get a taxi to just above the hotel and walk the short distance past St George’s church. The staff carry your luggage in and out of the old town

  • Jean, gb1023 May 2016

    WOW moments at Wind Tales!!

    We just loved the quirkiness of this property! The room and the entire guesthouse was just so different to anything we have ever stayed in. The view down to Ermoupouli is incredible but also exploring the wee narrow alleyways of Ano Syros is great fun and its like stepping back in time. We did a great walk to San Michali and the countryside was just a blaze of colour from the wild flowers and we had great views of the terraced hillsides. We also loved the traditional breakfast we enjoyed every morning. The local cheeses were excellent as were the homemade jams and bread with local honey. More like a brunch than a breakfast. While we were there, there was also an amazing concert in the cathedral of St. George just above the guesthouse. That was an incredible evening with a group visiting from the States. All in all an incredible experience on such a lovely island

  • Dani, nl1011 Jan 2016

    A hidden gem

    The location, had great views. A lovely satisfying walk down to the main town. There’s a lovely taverna(lilis) and a great cafe/cocktail bar also, can’t miss it. Breakky was tasty and just right, you eat it on your terrace enjoying the views. Rooms kept tidy daily. Alexis and co are more than happy to help with any needs. Super friendly and cool. Three - four nights here would be great!! Cheers Alexis!!!

  • Konstantinos, ro1028 Feb 2016

    Best Hotel in Syros Island by far in my opinion.

    Breathtaking View... Stunning Interior Design... Home Made Organic Breakfast... Super-comfy Coco-Mat beds... Unsurpassed overall hospitality... Surprising Value-for-Money... What else can one hope for, when vacating, seriously?? Most definitely coming back to WindTales next year ! Aleksis Thanks for Everything

  • Svetlana, Beograd109 Jun 2015

    Feeling like Greek gods in Wind Tales

    Staying in Wind Tales was perfect!! The whole guest house is placed in a beautiful hill, in medeval town, overlooking the city of Ermoupoli..with breath taking views.. We liked everything! Room was perfect, very spacious and stylish..Bathroom was big and specially designed with so many details to make one feel comfortable and pamppered! Breakfast is served at beautifully decorated veranda with sea view..and islands in the distance. Not to mention that we slept and ate like gods with homemade specialities! Special thanks to Alex, the owner and the girls Christiana and Maddalena who made us feel so welcome and made our stay even more special.. One of the most beautiful and special places we've been so far and definitely good value for money!

  • Simon1029 Jul 2015

    A tranquil stay in old Greece with the best of modern facilities

    Wind Tales is a unique hotel and run on a very family basis. Alexis' mother makes the jam. Alexis' father makes the wine. It is like staying in your home - if your own home were stunning, beautiful, well-staffed, caring, helpful, and on a most attractive island in Greece.

  • Dorothy Armstrong91013 Aug 2015

    Spectacular views, stunning room with staff who couldn't do more for you!

    Alexis was the perfect host going the extra mile to ensure we had a fantastic holiday. Information about what to see and where to eat meant we made great use of the time in Syros. Also Antonella served the most delicious breakfast on our private terrace with spectacular views. Thank you both!

Not a dislike but worth knowing (which we did) there are many steps so this place might not be suitable for all.

  • Stephanie9.615 Aug 2015

    The ONLY place to stay in Syros- Loved it!

    Alexis was AMAZING. I immediately felt comfortable with him and he was very hospitable. He helped me plan my short stay and recommended some great places to see. My room was exquisite and small touches like complimentary wine and lavender sachets under the pillow made it feel so luxury. Don't stay anywhere else in Syros.

  • Alessia101 Sep 2015

    Fabulous stay !

    The facility is stunning, room and bathroom decorated with taste, wifi working well, amazing view on ermoupouli. A perfect bubble to escape the daily routine. Alexis is the perfect host. Toughtful,extremly efficient, suggesting the best restaurants to eat, the best places to go and organizing everything for you (booking restaurant, windsurf lessons, diving lessons, etc...) A service worth a five stars hotel in a family atmosphere ! The best !

  • Maria1030 Sep 2015

    If you come to Syros -Stay here!

    Wind Tales is one of the best hotel that I've ever been stayed.The owner and staff are fantastic. They make great job. It is worth to go to Syros only in order to stay at Wind Tales.` Thank you very much for everything. We would love to stay more. Hope to come back very very soon

  • Natalie9.619 Oct 2015

    Fantastic place, amazing people

    Amazing hotel, with the most friendly staff. It's located in Ano Syros - the old town, on the hill with breath taking views for the city of Ermoupoli, the sea, sometimes you can see the closest islands. Alexis is the perfect host. Very friendly, open, helpful,extremely efficient, suggesting the best restaurants to eat, the best places to go. Our room with the bed on rock, shower with original marble rocks was amazing. fresh breakfast served on terrace with the sea view - it's amazing Every evening Alexis makes special cocktails for the guests, and you can spend the evening enjoying the view Every day fresh flowers in room.

  • Karen1020 May 2016

    Awesome attention to details. Excellent views and home made breakfasts.

    The attention to every little details was amazing and the host was the most attentive anyone could want. Fantastic - we will be back next year.

  • HeyVictor1030 Jun 2016

    Gem in Anos Syros

    Alex the host/owner of Wind Tales was absolutely charming and could not do enough for us. The breakfasts on the stunning terrace overlooking the town below were among the best we've ever had. Homemade jam from Alex's family farm. Freshly squeezed juices. Our accommodation was charming. The old town a wonder to explore. The restaurants Alex recommended were excellent. Syros was full of surprises and we cannot wait to go back.

  • Beardo_traveler109 Jul 2016

    Charming Place

    Everything. Alexis was nice enough to welcome us at the port. The place is in a little cute town with nice shops. The rooms feel like home, with personal details added with authentic cultural items to complement the 1200's room rocks. And the breakfast was the cherry on the top with a beautiful view and good food. Love the place.

  • Bill9.612 Jul 2016

    A welcoming and peaceful place on Syros

    Our host Alexis was wonderful as well as his assistant that served us breakfast everyday. Very relaxing and in a very interesting location.

  • Stephan1020 Jul 2016


    A WONDERFUL host (Alexis)! He was able to arrange almost everything (even a rental car!) and offered -together with his great team- a felling of warm hospitality and personality. The room represented the TYPICAL local style of the Cyclades and the "sundowner" with a phantastic view over Hermopolis is worth to remember. A wonderful breakfast with HOMMADE juices and differnt kind of jam was a wonderful start into the day. Even the "difficult" transport of the suitcase via the small stairs of Ano Syros was arranged by Alexis. He stood at the port after arrival of the ferry and right fom the beginning we had the feeling of beeing not clients but "friends". WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS INDIVIDUAL GUESTHOUSE!!!! Many thanks for this awsome experience!!!!

  • Nikolaos1028 Jul 2016

    A totally relaxing experience in the heart of Ano Syros with breathtaking views

    One of the best places we have ever visited. Beautifully decorated bedrooms, incredible views, homemade breakfast, honest smiles. And quiet! You can hear the sounds of Syros. Alexis pays attention to the smallest details and everyone is always there when you need them. We chose the Relax room, and we left this place totally relaxed! We slept like babies! Will come again very soon! Thank you for everything!

  • Arianna9.623 Aug 2016

    A magical place in Syros

    The view is stunning and the room really nice, specially the bathroom. Alexis, the owner, made us feel very welcome. The wonderful breakfast is served on the terrace: fresh juice, eggs, coffee, homemade marmelade, bread, feta, yogurt, honey, fresh fruit...Wind Tales is located in Ano Syros, a charming medieval village.

  • Joe1030 Aug 2016


    Alexis was a brilliant host, so friendly and informative. Him and Dmitri even picked us up from the other side of the island, going that extra mile. They also dropped us off at the port at 6.30am on departure and bought us breakfast in the port as we didn't have time to eat at Wind Tales before. On that note - the breakfast is incredible! All fresh and amazing ingredients served by a lovely woman (whose name I've forgotten now). The location is a bit of a hidden gem compared to many of the very touristy islands - Anos Syros is a beautiful little town overlooking Hermopoulis which comes to life at night with restaurants and shops opening in the narrow alleyways at night, creating a great little atmosphere. You can walk down to Hermopoulis easily in the day or it's a 5 minute taxi. The room itself was lovely, the bedroom being a really nicely done up place. The bathroom was amazing - stone bath and exposed beams everywhere. Each night we had a top up of local wine and limoncello. Outside of the room and downstairs was a shared area which was really homely and had plenty of books you could read. Just outside from there is the lovely veranda with lots of comfy seats and cushions (though a little windy - the clue is in the name!) I'm waffling a little bit, but my girlfriend and I really couldn't praise Wind Tales enough!
