Sifnos is simultaneously one of the most upscale and elegant islands of the Cyclades, yet it also keeps a low profile and retains a certain simple charm. It might look rugged and uninviting at first, but is actually exactly the opposite: the island features gently rolling hills, lush terraced olive groves, and a strong scent of aromatic herbs that wafts through the air. The architecture is traditional, yet embellished by local touches, the cuisine is distinctive and absolutely delicious (the island has a reputation as a foodie island), the people are friendly, and the landscape is simply breathtaking. The island is crossed by many paths, making it an ideal destination for those who enjoy hiking and beautiful natural scenery. Sifnos is a little gem, a place to discover and enjoy in all seasons.
