About the house:
This traditional house was built in 1846. This white washed gem was built by locals using local stone. When renovating, we kept the traditional architecture and included modern conveniences such as plumbing and updated appliances.
The view of Kastro (remains of a Venetian castle) and amazing sunsets can be seen from living/dining room and stone patio. There is also a fully planted garden below and an entrance patio. Perfect to read a book, enjoy the sun or just relax. From patio you can also see the island of Naxos among many others.
The house has 105 sq. meters. Total land is 280.
The bedroom has a double bed while the large living room has a day bed (2 twin).
There is 1 new bathroom with shower only.
The kitchen has a full size refrigerator with freezer, a 3 burner stove/oven combination, microwave and laundry machine (washer). Go ahead ... pack light!
Shops, food market, restaurants and bus station are less than 5 minutes away.
Our friend Manny can meet you at the Ferry and help you settle in (daytime only).

Amorgos, known as The Hidden Gem of the Aegean, is an island with small traditional villages and crystal water beaches. The coastline is extremely rocky with sheer cliffs. The impressive Hozoviotissa Monastery, built in 1088, is wedged in the rock at 300 meters from the sea.
Hora, the medieval capital of Amorgos is a must see. The best sunsets are observed from the Kastro, remains of a Venetian fort.
The best way to get to know this low key island is to hike from the labyrinth alleys to the splendor of the sea.,
Amorgos is perfect for spending a great vacation without the crowds.
The island was featured in the film The Big Blue by Luc Besson

We purchased the house after visiting other 14 Greek Islands. We chose Amorgos for its beauty and character. Since our first visit in 1996, not much has changed. We were very fortunate to find and renovated this house. All materials were carried by donkey ... can I say more???
The house is located in the island's medieval capital, Hora. It is the last house on the alleyway making it very private and quiet. It's is less than a 5 minute walk to shops, restaurants and transportation. The house has amazing views.
