Some information about holidays on the Greek island of Symi, also called Simi; Σύμη in Greek.
You can click the images to go to the web pages for each company. (Pages and information as of January 2011) There are more links below including links to Symi Dream Blog posts with helpful comments by travellers.
The Symi Garden Studios. This website will give you a guided tour of this particular accommodation which is, I believe, situated in Yialos, slightly back from the main streets in a quiet neighbourhood. You can get all the prices and availability from the website where you also have a large selection of colourful images to look at, to give you a real feel for the place.
“Kalodoukas Holidays has been operating in Symi since 1978, always hosting tourists from all countries of the world. We cooperate with agencies abroad, like English, French, Swiss, Italian, Danish, etc. Since 1995 we’ve also been operating in Belgrade, Serbia. ”
“Holidays in Symi are just the thing for those who want to spend some leisure time either walking or lazing around on the beach. Symi holidays are great for visiting the local coves and secluded beaches via a boat trip.”
“New to independent travel and nervous? We can give you as much help as you need. We can pre-book a taxi to meet you at Rhodes airport and take you to the ferry. Does that bargain flight land at 3 in the morning? We can book a hotel room for you to recover in. Worried about where to leave your luggage and where to find the boat to Symi? The Symi Visitor can solve all these problems for you.”
