Villa Gaia was built in 1780 and renovated in 2017. It is a traditional old stone-built house located in the countryside of Ano Manna 5 km from Syros Town (Hermoupolis) and 5-10 minutes from the beaches.

The 2.5 acres garden is impressive. It is full of trees, bougainvilleas, hibiscus and other flowers.
