8pm - Port of Kamares - Speed Runner Time

There is a special time we do not want to miss every day. When the speed runner arrives around 8pm, the port wakes up little by litthe half an hour before. People who are leaving, try to park their car in the most proper manner, on the long way close to the sea side. Family with kids and rucksacks are doing island hopping and jump to another location or leaving definitively to Piraeus. Special ambiance, unforgettable light, happy and noisy mess but always different. Photos have been taken without flash to restitute the same view,... [Lire la suite]

Sunsets at Kamares harbour remains magical despite there is other places to admire them such as Troulaki or Cheronissos. These snapshos witness about the quiet ambiance we feel after a sunny day and before starting one more greek night.

Living in Kamares

We have chosen to stay in the port of Kamares to take benefit of the special attraction provided by the situation. For any new tourist, Kamares proposes various type of accomodation. Moreover, many restaurants in the port or in Aghia Marina (facing the port) compete in quality to offer traditional and local greeks specialities. Despite we are faithful to Hotel Afroditi and O Argiris for our evening restaurant, we have also tested others tavernas at lunch. See upated photos in new kamares gallery.

Why Sifnos ?

Something I did not explain since the recent opening. Why Sifnos ? Preferences are so personal that you meet people having some passion for Serifos or Paros, as these islands are closed to their criteria. The first time we approached Sifnos was in may 1999 as we were travelling by ferryboat from Milos to Paros. During the stop in Sifnos, you may imagine the view we had as the evening was arriving with an unforgettable sunlight. The time seemed to stop as the ferry were at the port. Kamares was so quiet, the sand beach and its line of... [Lire la suite]
