Chroussa is a mountainous village at the southern side of the island, 9 kilometers from Hermoupolis and 2 kilometers from Vari. The landscape and the atmosphere are completely different from those of most villages of Syros.
At Chroussa we see traditional newly-built houses, mansions and old magnificent manors, many pine trees and picturesque narrow streets.
Ideal visiting hours are 9 to 11 in the morning and all afternoon. That’s because you must explore the area on foot in order to enjoy the enchanting atmosphere.
The village has a children scout camp, that has been visited from children from all over Greece through the years.
It would be wise to have a bottle of water with you when you visit the area because there are no shops there. You must also be extremely careful if you smoke.
