Villa Kea is a very private newly built villa situated in the most valued area of the Island overlooking the sheltered and cultured harbor of Vourkari. It has five bedrooms and sleeps 5-8 guests. The small traditional port of Vourkari is a call for yachts with a vibrant selection of tavernas, shops, art galleries, and bars within walking distance. The Villa has been lovingly constructed in a traditional Cycladic style and is built on 3 levels using natural materials. It has stunning sea views from the large wraparound terraces that surround the villa. The villa is ideal for families and can accommodate 5 to 8 people. It has five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen with brand new appliances, TV, DVD, Wi-Fi. The guest suite is on the top floor that includes two adjacent bedrooms with a queen size bed, a pull out queen size sofa, and en suite bathroom. Three steps below is the second level, an open-plan that comprises the lounge area, separate dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen.
Vourkari, Kea: The little harbour of Vourkari is a 10 - 15 minutes walk from the house and a delightful place popular with the yachting crowd. Although there is no beach in Vourkari itself, the lovely sandy beach at Gialiskari with its recommended beach taverna is less than a 15 minute walk away. Vourkari has quite a buzzy nightlife and there are several good tavernas and a couple of trendy bars. There is also a mini-market and a couple of arts and crafts shops.
Otzias Bay, Korissia, Ioulis: Otzias Bay and Korissia are only a ten minute drive from the house (there is a local bus service) and the pretty island capital Ioullis is a further 15 minutes up the mountain (there is a local bus service). The Otzias Bay has a long stretched sandy beach with a lagoon section that makes it ideal for swimming for families with small children. Unlike others, Kea remains a quaint, low profile, rugged island, with few tourists, and an abundance of pristine beaches, beautiful blue-green waters, and ancient cobblestone marked foot-paths, bird-watching nature reserves, few hotels and mostly, privately owned houses. Seasonally or permanently, to relax and enjoy, Kea boasts known names of the Greek and international jet-set in business, law, science, and art, as it appeals to the discerning visitor who seeks tranquillity, authenticity and a genuinely Aegean environment.

The Villa is situated on a 1-acre mountainside location with spectacular views of sunsets over the Aegean Sea. While the nearest village and beach are accessible by foot, (village of Vourkari is 15 minutes walk and the Yialiskari beach is 20 minutes, I would recommend renting a car. From the Athens International airport, it is a 30-45 minute ride to the port of Lavrion where the ferry leaves for Kea. The boat ride is close to 50 minutes and you can get a detailed schedule of departures and arrivals by calling + 30-22920-25249. There are several tavernas within walking distance from the house with excellent (catch of the day) seafood and other traditional Greek dishes. There is a small supermarket in Vourkari, in close proximity to the Villa and two large supermarkets in the main port of Korissia which is a 10 minute drive (approximately 2-3 kilometers) from the house. Korissia is also the main port of the island where the ferries arrive and depart.
