SHADY, SECRET HIDEWAY ON GLORIOUS UNDISCOVERED ANDROS

Andros House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms 3 bathrooms Sleeps 10

Traditional old island house with additional buildings in keeping with the character of the island. 10 minutes from beach. Deliberately devoid of clutter but comfortable and homely. Fully equipped kitchen to cook freshly caught fish and vegetables that the farmers bring down to town each morning. Real fire for those who visit in the cooler months. The walls, mostly 3ft thick, keep the house cool in summer and warm in the winter. Shady areas with great views of sunsets and sea. Olive and fruit trees in the terraced grounds. Good walking through long forgotten lush valleys. Fabulous panoramas out to sea and across the unspoilt mountainous island. Easily accessible from the road and yet totally quiet and private. The accommodation easily splits into 2 separate areas suitable for more than one family. Wonderful for a families or those who want to avoid the club scene but would like a holiday that will enthral all from the very young to the more senior.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Beaches are great although Vitali really stood out, endless wildlife and the river Aladhino is worth seeing.

I like seeing the geckos.

What a relaxing holiday! We have really enjoyed the rustic lifestyle and friendly reception in Andros. We visited Hora (the Maritime museum... tried to see the Archaeological museum but closed on Mondays). Went to Archeological museum in Paleopolis (open Tuesd, Thurs and Fri). Ypsili arheological site only open on Wednesday so we missed that!. Walked up to the tower of Agios Petros which was v hot but worth it. We have been stunned by the age of some of these ruins. Restaurants at Vitali ad Ano Aprovatou were our favourites. The bumpy rides in the car to the beaches have been on experience but worth it each time. We visited Fellos, took a sea canoe out at St Peter's beach, Vori, Zorkos with Vitali and the beach between the two churches being our favourites. Great snorkelling!

The house has been wonderful - so uncluttered unlike our own house but with everything you need.

We have all really like the house - so much space. Also the climate. Nice to be able to leave things outside at night without worrying about rain. Favourite beach - Vitali with the jumping rocks....

The island of Andros is now the closest Aegean island to the new Athens International Airport. A 30 minute bus ride takes you to the port of Rafina where ferries leave for Andros, a two hour journey. The next two islands in the group are Tinos and Mykonos. All ferries to Andros dock at Gavrio which is about a 15 minute drive from the house. Andros is the greenest Cycladic island, even in the summer, fresh water flows on the island and there is plenty of greenery. Being slightly off the beaten track, visitors can enjoy this traditional Greek island and relax on its near empty beaches. There are plenty of sandy beaches on the west side of the island, the nearest of which is only 10 minutes drive from the house. On the east side there are perfect white pebble beaches with the clearest blue seas we have ever seen. We have 4 children ranging from 2 to 14 and have found that there really is something for everyone. This is one of Greece's best kept secrets.

Other Activities: Drinking local wine on empty beaches

Notes:
We would prefer guests not to smoke in the house. The house is cleaned before visits. If required, the maid can come more frequently, but this must be arranged beforehand. The garden is very large and there are a number of terraces providing opportunities for separate families, or members of the same family, to have space for themselves. The house is just above a fresh mountain spring. Internet access could be available for a separate fee.
