My husband and I had the great fortune of finding Wind Tales, at the end of our week long sailing charter in the Cyclades. We took a ferry over to Syros for 2 nights at Alex's hotel.
We were met by 2 of his friends who were waiting for us at the ferry, they were warm and welcoming and after car transport, walked us up the winding streets to WindTales, which sits pirched on the top of Ano Syros and is reached only by small walking streets. The rooms are built into the rock of the mountain, are stunningly beautiful and naturally designed for a cool breeze and a lovely view of the sunrise on your personal veranda overlooking the port. The staff was more than gracious, friendly, and kind, even delivering us to the airport in time for our flight back to Athens.
The room, veranda, shower and common space were emaculate and beautiful with thoughtful touches for our comfort. The breakfast was by far the best bed and breakfast fare I have had, including homemade grape juice from their vinyard, tomato juice from their garden and figs from their trees. We also sipped wine from their vinyard on our veranda as we unwound from the day.
We did take full advantage of Alex's other business, his windsurfing camp, with excellent equipment and very economical rates on a little hideaway of a beach.
We couldn't think of a better way to end a trip to Greece, and have decided that Wind Tales will be the first reservation we make if we every get back here, and plane tickets will be the second reservation.
Thank you to all the support staff and ownership of this very well maintained, toughtful and one of a kind lodging.
