Overview

Kea House Rental Photos and Description

The old port of Kea

You can reach the house through the stone paved streets of the old town in 5 min distance from the port (150m stone street and 25 steps). It sits on the top of the hill of the old harbour. From the front porch you can see the sea, the town of Korissia, Vourkari and Ioulida the beautiful capital of the island climbed in the centre of Kea towards the north east. The house was built by stone about eighty years ago and it is restored with care so that it keeps the feeling of its old use. At the same time it provides all the comforts of a modern house and it is easy and relaxing to live in. Because of the thick stone walls and the traditionally made roof covered by soil the house is very well insulated and also it is very well ventilated with openings in the front and back. This makes a/c unnecessary during even the hottest days of summer. Nevertheless stand up fans are provided.

Kea's capital town Ioulida is one of the four ancient settlements of island (Ioulida, Korissia, Pisses, Karthea). Health centre, pharmacy banks and helicodrome operate on the island. There are traits of life and civilisation in Kea dating back to the pre-historic period and the Age of Bronze. In Ioulida's archaeological museum one can admire objects from pre-historic housing settlements, as well as distinguished collections from the archaic up to the Roman period.

Kea remains a quite , 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. Kea boasts known names of Greek and international jet-set business, law, science and art as it appeals to the discerning visitor who seeks tranquillity , authenticity and a genuinely Aegean environment.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful holiday I had and how much I loved staying in your house. What a perfect location.

I hired a car and was able to see lots of the island and to go on many walks. There were so many wild flowers and birds and the scenery was truly stunning.

It was also very kind of you to meet me and take me to Sounion and I enjoyed meeting you and your family.



Best wishes,

Ann

delicious place tot stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at Kea in this traditional house. It's a romantic place looking over the bay. We stayed there with 3 boys (11, 15 and 18 years old). Just enough space for the five of us.

We loved the island en discovered that we had the best house in our most favourite spot. Lively because of the harbour and we felt at home at once.

We had a warm welcome when arriving by boat, with delicious deliveries in the fridge and fresh bread.

Every day we walked the few steps down to the shops and the sea. Travelling around by bus is easy. We met only really friendly people. We hope to come again sometime.

A lovely traditional island house

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay and appreciate Kea. The house is quite old, made of stone and has been restored to keep a traditional feel. The main bedroom is possibly the best I have seen in a Greek island home - whitewashed stone walls and mood lighting combine to make it an amazing place to spend time in.

The house had been kindly stocked with food and various holiday essentials: wine, honey, pasteli from Kea (you really must try it), insect repellant, candles etc. The fact it is very close to the shops of Korissia is a big bonus as well. The only drawback is that it is the highest house in the village, which means climing up 60 or so stairs to get there! Not suitable for the disabled or the elderly, but it will get any other guests fit very quickly!

The property was clean and well maintained and service was friendly.

Kea has great beaches such as Koundouros and both Ioulis and Korissia have restaurants serving traditional Greek food. A hike to Karthea is a must, it is a magical location with ancient ruins and two splendid beaches.

With all this just a 2 hr journey from central Athens (car + ferry) you'd be mad not to go!

Car: not necessary

Korissia is the port of Kea where the ferries arrive and depart.

The house sits on the top of the hill of the old harbour facing the sea.

Chora-Ioulida is the capital town 5.5km from Korissia. A car is not absolutely necessary as the house is in the port near the sea. It is useful though for someone who wants to make trips round the island. There are several tavernas within walking distance with excellent (catch of the day) seafood and other traditional Greek dishes. Gialiskari beach is 1km distance away. Vourkari - a famous port for yachts with shops, art galleries, bars and taverns in 2km and Otzias with its long stretched sandy beach in 5km distance.
