Symi is one of the Dodecanese islands and lies 25 kilometres north-west of Rhodes with daily connections to Rhodes as well as to other neighbouring islands. This exclusive island is a popular watering hole for the elite many of whom arrive with their private yachts from all over the world during the summer months to moor in the natural harbour within the scenic setting of this charming village.
The high quality living and structures of exceptional workmanship in an architectural style typical of Symi speak for themselves forming an elegant overall picture. The lovingly restored homes and old Captain’s houses all appear again in their former glory offering unique views of the Aegean sea and the marina.
Home ownership on Symi is extremely prestigious with few sought after properties currently on the market. Many of the residents here are company executives as well as famous personalities from the film and television industry.
The annual Symi Festival, held from August until September, is an important cultural event with theatre, cinema, dance, traditional and classical music, literary and art exhibitions. The world renowned singer and Unicef Representative, Nana Mouskouri as well as the singer Maria Farantouri have on occasions also participated in the festival.
