Host Review Score

Love Symi but can't face the steps? That's how we felt when we first thought of moving to Symi and we've been lucky to find one of the few houses that has really easy access. From the Clock Tower take the road towards Nimborio, with the Nireus Hotel on your left and the sea on your right. Walk round Harani bay, past the boat yard, past Odyssia Restaurant, until you see the tables for Tholos restaurant on the corner by the sea. Villa Galanis is the double-fronted yellow house opposite. Give us a call when you arrive. The new harbour in Symi, where the Blue Star ferries now dock, is a good 40 minute walk from Villa Galanis, Sebecco is around 30 minutes walk, Dodekanisos Pride, Express and Panagia Skiadeni dock 10 minutes walk from Villa Galanis. If you would like us to arrange a taxi to meet your boat, please let us know in advance and we will reserve one for you. We look forward to seeing you very soon.
Harani is the quieter part of Gialos, away from the hustle and bustle of the main harbour. With great restaurants nearby, the town beach just round the corner, and fabulous views across the harbour it is the perfect base for a holiday of quiet relaxation.
