One of the most enchanting hikes is from Apollonia right across Sifnos to Agios Andreas or Vathy. Amateurs may also chose shorter hikes that go only to Chyrsopigi, the monastery of Agios Simeon or Kastro. Hiking maps are available on the island itself. There are over 30 hiking routes on the island, both long and short.
Sifnos Island according to the world-class magazine “National Geographic”, Sifnos is one of the ten most charming and exotic islands, included within the list of destinations such as the Bahamas, Seychelles, French Polynesia, the Netherlands Antilles, etc.
Culinary and cooking lessons
Pick up your own fresh ingredients from our Garden & participate in a traditional cooking class. In the farm, you will have the chance to discover the secrets of Sifnos’ traditional diet by cooking together, overfriendly conversations while enjoying the hospitable environment. The Farmland is located in the center of Sifnos Island, between Apollonia and Kato Petali regions. Grapes, olive oil, capers, figs, almonds, dry-cultivated onions and honey, along with herbs, locally raised goats and sheep and their milk, placed in clay cooking pots – what sparse local products the land of Sifnos had to offer were put to use efficiently and wisely. The island’s ample supply of clay turned into cooking pots, water jugs, pitchers and portable grills. Local products turned into tasty creations that became a tradition. Everything contributed to creating a culture based on popular arts and gastronomy.
Sifnos dishes are cooked slowly in clay vessels, absorbing the unique aromas of the land. The clay skepastaria, a deep pot with a cover, is used for boiling overnight the chick pea soup, containing olive oil, onions and laurel leaves. Its creamy and subtly smoked flavour is the centrepiece of the Sifnos cuisine
