The island has its own distinct charming Cycladic flair with its rugged mining sites, history and mythology. The island exudes a calm atmosphere despite its arid and wild landscape characteristics and is gracefully embraced by the turquoise blue colors of the Aegean Sea.
Apart from having a laid back and relaxed holiday, you can enjoy the magnificent beaches and outdoor activities such as hiking, climbing, mountain biking, windsurfing, snorkeling, diving and many more. The island's untouched nature and low-key nightlife maintain its exclusivity.
Glaronissi and Vagia Residences are located 5 km from Livadi (the island’s port), only a 10 minute drive by car. And another 5 km from Livadi is the island’s capital, the Chora.
Livadi, the harbor, is an ideal place for taking a stroll along sea front with its wide range of restaurants, bars and coffee shops, etc. All your shopping can be done within walking distance; you will find grocery stores, bakeries, butchers, fruit shops and the island’s pharmacy.
If you like to swim, the port area has two beautiful sandy beaches: Avlomonas and Livadakia.
Chora, the main village, is built amphitheatrically on a rocky hill overlooking the island and harbor from the top. The locals have respected the Cycladic architectural tradition by building white cube-shaped houses. Strolling through the winding narrow streets of Chora, you will discover some bars, cafés and taverns, blending into the whole scene harmoniously. Take a walk up to the 15th century’s Venetian castle; visit the small chapels and windmills, perched precariously, offering breathtaking views of the island.
Serifos’ coastline offers plenty of beaches to choose from: rocky, pebbly or sandy ones accompanied by crystal blue waters.
The island’s beaches are reached either by car, walking trails or by sea.
Easily accessible sandy beaches are Agios Sostis, Psili Ammos, Agios Ioannis, Sikamia, Kalo Ambeli, Ganema and Vagia, where the residence is located.
