Once upon a time, in the historic center of Hermoupolis in 1860, a large house with lots of windows, plenty of doors and a garden with three sour orange trees was built. The pedestrian Omirou Street was filled with life and happy children’s voices.
Years passed slowly, as the owners and tenants succeeded one another with their happiness and their sorrows, writing the story of the house. And the time continued to pass chasing the years, the months, the weeks, the hours, the minutes. The house became desolate. No one lived in it anymore. Worn and silent, it conjured up the old days.
It was the moment when Antouanetta decided to find a house in Hermoupolis.
She saw lots of houses that were on sale those days, but none of them was suitable. The third year she noticed it. That was it. No one ever understood whether Antouanetta chose the house or the house chose her. In 1998 she began to deal with its renovation. It was not easy at all. Sometimes she was in despair and thought she wouldn’t make it but she kept on. She never gave up the attempt.
Then came the spring of 2009 and the house stood there at the same spot as in 1860, but happy and ready to continue its story. Antouanetta gave it her name.
High quality, high class accommodation.
The attention to the little things, like welcome drinks and snacks in the room at no extra cost. All the products shampoo, etc were high quality. Antouanetta and her daughter were very obliging to any request.
If you want to be happy, stay at Antouanetta’s
The host, Antouanetta, is an extremely friendly and kind person, who was always ready to help with any kind of request. A perfect combination of a familiar atmosphere and the comfort of a hotel service. An extra highlight was the beautiful garden.
What a beautiful home with great hosts.
The house was and absolutely fabulous example of Greek renovation. The facility was perfectly situated for exploring Ermoupolis and the hosts were wonderful.
High quality accommodation with 5 star hospitality
A couple of days before I was due to arrive Antouanetta sent me a detailed email explaining how to get from the Port to my accommodation either by car, taxi or on foot, and included a map which proved very useful. Antouanetta and her daughter were extremely friendly, kind and accommodating throughout my stay. The attention to detail, both in the presentation of the service on offer and the decor/furnishings of my apartment was first class. It’s located in a quiet neighbourhood but ideally situated for exploring Hermoupolis and Syros.
