>> Monday, September 29, 2014 – first rain, holiday accommodation 2015, October weather, walking on Symi
|Reflections. Our first puddles in months!|
|When the torrent comes down the mountain road it brings with it a summer's accumulation of fallen leaves, pine cones and other debris.|
|Time to fit the plastic drop cloths that enable cafes and tavernas to function in all weathers.|
|Bright early morning sunshine and amazing visibility.|
|The rising sun catching the Kastro.|
|A bright splash of bougainvillea where Chorio meets the top of the Pedi Valley.|
|The Mavrovouni area of Yialos in blinding sunshine before the autumn sun reaches the harbour itself.|
|The island of Nimos with the sun just reaching the small white monastery and chapel.|
|Local fishing boats rafted up in Yialos.|
The long range forecast is showing fine weather for the week ahead so early October arrivals will still be able to enjoy some sunshine. Temperatures are now in the mid twenties during the day, dropping to around 18 degrees in the evening and it is much cooler in the shade. If you are coming to Symi now you will certainly want an extra layer in the evenings, particularly when dining al fresco.
The island is still quite busy, mainly with Scandinavian, German and British tourists, many of them kitted out for serious walking. With excellent visibility and reasonable temperatures it is wonderful time to explore the interior of Symi with its tumbled terraces, ancient chapels, unspoiled woods and infinite vistas of distant islands and azure seas.
We are now open to start taking bookings for 2015 so if you need any help with choosing your perfect holiday home with us, please email us.
