Aria’s new Patriarca boutique hotel is housed in a historic property in the center of Sifnos’ capital, Apollonia. The house was built in 1650 and was once the home of the Patriarch of Constantinople, Gregory VII (1923-1924).
The property has been remodeled by Aria to meet the latest hospitality standards, but also retain its strong architectural connection with the island’s rich history.
“Patriarca blends beautifully with the landscape of the Cyclades, while its elegant, modern décor combines predominantly bright white with discreet splashes of color,” Aria Hotels said in an announcement.
Patriarca also features a swimming pool, a sun terrace, a lounge, and a shared kitchen and dining room where guests can prepare meals.
A food and beverage service will be added in the beginning of the 2020 season.
Aria Hotels has numerous hotels and villas in exceptional destinations of unique natural beauty in Greece. The company recently added the “Urban Stripes” to its portfolio, a stylish apartment building in central Athens, and the luxury boutique hotel Grace Mykonos in the the Cyclades.
Aria Hotels is a subsidiary of the family-owned Libra Group.
