The space

Kea - Tzia as the Greeks call it - is probably the best kept secret of the islands of the cyclades archipelago.

Only a 1 hour boat trip from the mainland port of Lavrio (20 minutes from Athens' El. Venizelos airport), Kea is a large montainous island with beautiful beaches. Little known to foreign tourists, attatched to its traditions, it is dotted with windmills and chapels and crisscrossed by ancient stonepaved hiking trails. A real "must see" is the prehistoric sculpture of a giant lion, which tradition claims that to touch the tip of his nose brings good luck, The picturesque and ancient site of Karthea which overlooks the sea and is reached only by following the road through a wild creek, is another "must" for a travellers itinary. Harmony is everywhere, life flows peacefully.
Ioulis the main town, 10 minutes drive from the port, is a big pedestrian village, built like an amphitheater. A two minutes stroll from the heart of the village, but away from the hussle and bussle, the rental property is built in three levels. Typical Cycladic, stonewalled and breezy, it enjoys a panoramic view from the terrace: the City Hall and its square shaded by plane trees, the roofs of the village and the hill of Kastro and in the distance, the sea, Cape Sounion and the island of Evia...

Tastfully decorated in local style, the cottage offers a simple comfort. With two bedrooms in differend levels it can accomodate 4 to 6 people max. Shower room and a second WC, kitchen with tiny fireplace, barbecue possible.

We recommend a car or motorbike (which can be rented easily on the island) to access the wildest beaches, but it is possible to do without it, the busses shuttleback and forth between the port and the main beaches.

Katerina was great, accommodating a very last minute booking to save my weekend getaway. The cute, classic house is very central but tucked up on the hill. Everything is lined in lace and nice fabrics. Beautiful little veranda overlooks the village and valley. I loved it.

Lovely, quirky little place with a great terrace in the heart of very well preserved village. I spent four wonderful, peaceful, out-of-season days in Ioulis and will very likely return.

The house is traditional, cute with magnificent view. You could spend your whole day on the terrace/balcony. It is clean and Katerina provides everything that is required. 3 minutes walking from the main square. Not very convenient for families with little children since the…

This house is small, simple and in a great location, about halfway up the town with fantastic views from the balcony across Ioulis and the sea beyond, if the weather is clear. We were there in April when the weather was mixed and cool, so we needed the heaters provided!…
