Ok I'm a bit reluctant to write a review of Eleonas Apartments, its hard enough to get in as it is. Sifnos is our absolute favorite island in Greece, and we have been to A LOT. We have stayed all over Sifnos but for us Eleonas has to be the best. The location is perfect. You are right in the middle of the island so all beaches are less than 5 miles away by bus or moped. For the evenings it's great as set right in the middle of all the fabulous bars and restaurants. However, Eleonas is tucked away in a quiet olive grove so you wouldn't even know it was there. All the apartments and studios are large with a great place to sit amongst the olive grove on your own private patio. Leaving the apartments in the mornings is really hard to do as you could sit there all day befriending the local cats and just lolling around reading books and relaxing. We have taken various friends there and they absolutely love it.
This the the first year that Eleonas has signed up with a booking agency ( i think its booking.com or Agoda) this is a bit of a worry. I know that with these sights it is possible to book in advance and then just cancel them a week - 10 days before if you change your mind. This could mean that Eleonas looks booked up when in fact it isn't, so keep checking in if you really want to go there.
