Built in a peaceful rural location, our ultimate artists' retreat offers great vistas, is only minutes from island's main town & strategically placed to access all beaches. Enjoy all modern amenities in a traditional setting. Relax and Get Inspired!
Kea (Kιa or Tzia) is the Cycladic island nearest to Attica (Athens) mainland - only 1 hr. by ferry from the port of Lavrion, which is a mere 35 minutes drive from Athens International Airport. You could be sipping a relaxing cocktail on one of our villa's verandas, enjoying the view, only about two hours after landing in Greece!
The villa is ideal for families with older children or for parties of up to 3 couples. Extra persons (1-2) can be discussed. Situated directly above Ioulis, the island's main town (or "hora"), it is centrally located providing easy access to the island's beaches and all points of interest. Built in 2008 in a 4,000 sq. m. (~1 hectare) plot marked by a good number of local Royal Oaks as well as olive and fig trees, it combines all modern amenities with the traditional look and feel of the region's country cottages.
The villa is fully equipped and adequately serviced, ensuring guests' privacy at all times. Running hot water, outdoor gas BBQ, fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms with showers, real beds, Hunter ceiling fans in all bedrooms and living room, washing machine and dish-washer.
The Villa is only 5 mins by car (15 mins walk) from Ioulis, 20 mins by car from the port of Korissia and less than 30 mins drive from any of the island's numerous beaches. Pool? No pool. Who needs a pool when the crystal clear, Aegean-blue sea is only minutes away? Car/moped rentals can be secured either at the Athens International Airport or the island port. Enquire for alternate arrangements.
While providing easy access to beaches, walking paths and bicycle rides due to its central location, this is also an ideal destination for relaxation and intellectual work, such as writing, composing or painting. The spot is very quiet, the views simply breath-taking, the surrounding countryside seductively beautiful. Kea is not a "hot" tourist destination, yet it provides its share of archaeological wealth to the visitor, it's seascapes and beaches are impeccable and there's the added value of the invigorating peace and quiet - provided one avoids the trendy nightlife around the port area.
A designated, knowledgeable and trusty contact person will always be nearby, available to answer all questions and provide assistance when required. Special needs (extras) such as prepared breakfast, a barbeque or a served dinner can be arranged.
Thanks to our central location, the whole island is our Neighborhood! Ioulis town offers a variety of local restaurants, allowing you to taste the island's vegetable, meat and fish specialties. More options exist in the port, Vourkari and Koundouros areas. There are small, seasonal tavernas in some of the beautiful beaches.
The Kea island municipality has announced daily bus service between the port town of Korissia and the main town of Ioulis, as well as main organized beach locations (Otzias, Koundouros). Enquire for detailed timetables upon arrival. There is also a number of taxis available on call. Car and moped rentals at the port promenade.
Smoking not allowed in the bedrooms. Prefer no pets (but negotiable). Please, no toddlers. House best fit for older/teenage children.
