A new Cycladic hideaway on Sifnos

A low-key, cosmopolitan crowd comes back to Sifnos summer after summer after summer, yet it remains one of the most authentic of Greek islands; its traditions thriving not for tourist consumption, but because life here has always followed the rhythm of the land and the seasons. There’s no airport and the port of Kamares, which has its own sandy beach, isn’t big enough to accommodate cruise ships.

Repurposed from an abandoned hotel overlooking the dinky fishing port of Faros, NOS is the latest hotel quietly making waves on this blissfully calm and elegant island.
