What a find! My husband and I stayed here from Feb-May (he was on business) and I fell in love with Anemone Apartments the moment I walked through the door. We stayed in no. 6, Petunia which has everything you need for an extended stay or a weeks holiday. We had two large terraces overlooking the sea and our one bedroom apartment was bright and welcoming with big comfy bed, washing machine, cooker,microwave ,internet connection and air conditioning. No 6 has an interconnecting door which would make it ideal for families or friends sharing although the upstairs apartment does have 2 bedrooms.
Lovely as the apartment is, our hosts Ireni and Gorge are fantastic and made our stay so special. Nothing was too much trouble and Ireni made sure that the apartment was kept supplied with fresh flowers, oranges and the occasional delicious supper dish! Never intrusive but always available if needed.
Azolimnos is a small village with a good beach, two shops and loads of tavernas (only 1 open in Feb, but as the weeks went on more opened). A regular bus service runs to Hermoupolis (10min journey) and taxis cost about 7euros.
I am loathed to share this, but SYROS is a hidden gem. Unspoilt, welcoming and only a 20min flight from Athens or 4 hour ferry journey from Piraeus and is the 1st stop en route to the rest of the Cyclades.
Lovely island, fantastic apartment and can't wait to visit again.,
