SERIFOS ISLAND INFORMATION

The “Iron Lady” of the Aegean


Perched on the western edge of the Cyclades island complex, Serifos is just a two-hour speedboart ride away from the port of Piraeus. With her imposing main town of Chora, built at 200 metres above sea level, dozens of picturesque villages, wonderful beaches and a long history, the so-called “Iron Lady” of the Aegean is intriguing and inviting at the same time.

Here you will experience Greek summer at its best: the beautiful and unforgettable shades of white and blue, the people friendly and hospitable, the sea clear and precious as a sapphire. Serifos is full of sights and stories – to discover them, just visit a village, a beach or one of the many remnants of its times past, scattered all over the island.

With a soil rich in metal reserves, mostly iron ore, Serifos developed as an outstanding mining community, one of the very few in the Mediterranean back in the 19th century. Operating through a former complex of miners' houses, COCO-MAT Eco Residences Serifos hotel honors this celebrated period in the island's history, offering a truly unique choice for your accommodation in Serifos.

TRAVEL TO SERIFOS

Serifos can be reached by boat by the port of Piraeus. During the summer period, there are itineraries operated daily both with regular ferries and speedboat carriers. It takes 5 hours to reach the island with the regular ferry and half that time with the speedboat. Connection to the rest of the Cyclades is also regularly available, with Serifos connecting with many islands to the north (Kythnos, Andros, Tinos, Mykonos), the south (Sifnos, Sikinos, Folegandros, Milos, Anafi, Santorini) and the east (Paros, Naxos, Amorgos), as well as with the island of Crete via Milos. During the rest of the year, there are routes available every other day with the regular ferry and more sparse speedoboat itineraries. The closest airports to Serifos island are those on the islands of Milos and Paros.

Architecture

Architect George Zafiriou is the mastermind behind the transformation of the miner's housing complex in Vagia into COCO-MAT Eco Residencies Serifos hotel.

Having spent a long time and produced impressive work on the island, George Zafiriou has been inspired by Serifos' distinctive features, its history and natural beauty for the past three decades.

For the creation of COCO-MAT Eco Residencies Serifos he managed to merge the authentic cycladic architecture, the unadorned industrial order and the elegant eco-friendly aesthetics that defines COCO-MAT's philosophy into a unique new style.

As a result, all spaces in COCO-MAT Eco Residencies Serifos are hospitable, full of natural light and completely in tune with their surroundings.

Location


VAGIA BEACH

Serifos' most beautiful sea bed is located just 10 minutes north of the port, at the entrance of Koutalas bay.

In Vagia you will find a natural haven from the Aegean summer winds, a lush sandy shore, crystal clear waters and a glorious sunset. The colorful pebbles at the bottom of the sea and the sweet water that streams from parts of the beach give Vagia a unique character, which has earned it a spot in the list of Natura 2000 protected sites.

With utter respect for Vagia's natural beauty, COCO-MAT Eco Residences Serifos hotel blends in with the scenery perfectly, allowing you to make the best of your stay by the sea day and night.
