Sifnos Events is a small island-based business experienced in creating tailor-made weddings, baptisms and parties of any kind, different cultural, educational and special events and also private or group tours and activities for travelers.
Originally starting in 2004, we have successfully organized numerous activities and events on Sifnos and other surrounding Cycladic islands. Living on Sifnos all year long gives us the obvious advantage of "local knowledge", enabling us to come up with the best solutions for your needs, to work on the best ideas and to find the best “value for money” way to offer the best service to you and your guests.
Our experience in planning and guiding different programs and activities includes people from all over the world, from all ages and religions, with many different ideas, expectations and wishes for their holidays.
It also includes a different aspect in presenting the island, a not so usual way of guiding, a different approach and treatment for travelers.
Your project on Sifnos island will be managed by a group of professionals selected in order to fulfill any wish you may have despite challenges posed by the size and location of the island. Of course one of us is always close at hand to answer any questions and face any issues that may come up.
Cultural and Natural Heritage is all around us. It is on the dry stone walls and the buildings, the plants and the land, the way people behave to each other, the relation with the time and the weather, the effect on the water around us.
Cultural and Natural Heritage is on an old wooden gate and on the dovecots, it is inside the Sunday chickpea soup and close to an ancient tower, it is in songs and dances and religious celebrations and also in myths, legends and stories.
Sifnos – like all islands – is not just sea and sun. It is not just the “must see” and “must do” that you need in order to get the feeling of the island. It is not enough to hear about history, monuments, names and dates. The awarded archaeological site of the island is more interesting if connected to the ancient towers and the communication system, the protected NATURA area, the characteristics we share with our ancient ancestors, Christianism and its churches built on the same spots as the ancient 12 gods temples.
A trekking tour is even better when you can recognize, smell and touch the wise medicinal herbs, when you hear the bells of sheep and the stories about these bells and these sheep, when you discover how creative people were before technology and how they managed to live in the environment and not from the environment.
You get to know a place if you meet locals in their everyday life, if you see how a home is, if you hear the stories that make the History, if you taste local food and drinks, if you try to feel locals’ pace and the reason behind it, if you listen to the sounds of nature, if you feel the island with all your senses.
Interpretation of Natural and Cultural Heritage is the technique and the idea behind Sifnos Events philosophy. The best way we have found to make you love our island and promise to come again!
Looking forward to showing you my island my way!Ronia Anastasiadou
