The “hidden paradise” of the Aegean

Perched on the western edge of the Cyclades island complex, Serifos is just a two-hour speedboat 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.
