Unique stone house in an amazing natural garden of 5500m2 with picturesque river,cistern and old stone hut, 300m from the beach. 5 terraces in 3 different levels, for isolation and big dinners. 2 nice beaches +taverns.
The most interesting element is the garden, left mostly in its natural state with old trees, cypresses, olive trees, planes, oaks. We don't have a pool but 160m of a little river with plenty of water tilll the end of June (last year even in August!). The spot is magic. The house, built on 2006 is simple, not luxury or pretentious, somehow modern, made of the stone from the garden, so everybody thinks it is old. Its is very convenient that the bedrooms have external doors to the terrace, and the terraces all around the house with different views, follow the light or the shadow. one of the attractions of the house is the huge cement bath tube downstairs, built in the rock. To get to the beach on foot, by the road or through the fields...
Access to Andros is very easy, because the departure port RAFINA is only half an hour from ATHENS AIRPORT, and the boat trip only 2 hours. With boats leaving around 17.00, if the plane arrives even at 15.30 you have enough time to catch the evening boat. There is a bus every half an hour from the airport and of course taxis (round 20 euros). I will inform you of the bus timetable.
After arriving to the port of Andros called GAVRIO, you must take a bus to the other side of the island (east side) where is the capital town CHORA. There I will be waiting for you with my car to take you to the house (2kms). There is a walking distance of 200 m. from the parking to the house. So if your luggage is very heavy I could call somebody to carry them.
Interaction with guests
I will be staying in the stone hut you see in the photo. IIi is 70 meters away but you don't see me and I don't see you. I have rent this house through another site for some years, so I have some experience of what people want. I always offer a dinner to my guests, and we talk about the island and what is worth seeing according to your preferences.
I like meeting people but I also respect their privacy.
Other things to note
The most important element of your trip is the island itself, "a hidden tresor" as most visitors call it. A very green island with small rivers and waterfalls, with dozens of first quality beaches,a hundred f nice villages of traditional architecture, a changing landscape every few kilometers, and a unique network of trails ANDROS ROUTES recently awarded from the European Union of hikers with the quality sign "Leading Quality ofTrails-Best of Europe".
