Photographer's Note

Simi, is the most pictoresque island of the Greek Dodekanisos islands. With very charming, elegant houses is a fiest for your eyes... Simi geographically, it is part of the Dodecanese island chain, located about 41 km north-northwest of Rhodes and 425 km from Piraeus, the port of Athens), with 58.1 km² (22 sq mi) of mountainous terrain. Its nearest land neighbors are the Datça and Reşadiye peninsulas of Muğla Province in Turkey. Its interior is dotted with small valleys, and its coastline alternates between rocky cliffs and beaches, and isolated coves.
There has been considerable restoration of many houses in Symi in the past decade including work by Rhodes and Symi-based architects including Haris A. Kalligas and Anastasia Papaioannou, both winners of the Europa Nostra Awards for their work on Symi and elsewhere in Greece.
