If you are booking a room with us, you will definitely hear from lovely Katerina. She works in reservations and answers to anyone who all your calls. During summer she is the smiling face that welcomes you at Verina Astra. Although her studies in shipping prepared her for another kind of career, she decided to follow a different path.

Sandro is half Greek and half Italian, which means he really understands Mediterranean food. He had been dreaming of becoming a chef since he was a little boy, when he started colour coordinating the dishes he was plating for his mom. He studied in a culinary school in Greece but what makes him unique as a chef is the experience he gained from working in various restaurants across Europe: Geneva, Athens, Sifnos, Copenhagen. When it comes to running a restaurant, Sandro is an expert. So far, his dream job has been working for chef Walter El Nagar, a pioneer in social gastronomy, in Le Cinquième Jour, a restaurant in Geneva. He is now back in Sifnos and feels confident that being the chef at Verina Astra Hotel is the next big step in his career. Well, he can also rely on the valuable help of the talented cook Julien Gratadou, his friend and old colleague who joined him in Sifnos.

Nassia is putting our team’s spirit, inspiration, ideas into words. She has studied communications in the US and has worked for many years in advertising and marketing positions. She is taking care of our website and social media presence and enthusiastically participates in any major projects we undertake. She is relatively new to the Sifnos experience but she has fallen hard for it – hence nobody dares question her frequent complaints when she unfortunately needs to spend most of her time in Athens.
Sofia is the person behind most of the beautiful pictures you see in our website. She is a professional photographer. She has shown her work in many group exhibitions. Sofia has worked all over Greece and abroad, but she found her muse in Sifnos. The island has inspired her from the very first moment she set foot on it a few years ago. That is also the reason why it was so natural for her to take on the task of managing our social media. Now she spends all summers on Sifnos capturing with images and words the essence of the island and the Verina experience for our Instagram followers.
