It is difficult to describe the feelings of awe and instant tranquility that enveloped us from the moment we entered the front gates.
Set on the shear cliffs on the south western side of Andros, the Stone Villa provided a very cozy base for us to soak up the sun, lounge in and around an amazing swimming pool, where we could witness the most beautiful unobscured sunsets, feeling that we were one with nature itself.
The description and photos that are shown in the property profile are 100% accurate, but really don’t match the reality which is way better! The bed is enormous and very comfortable, the kitchen equipped with everything that is required for self sufficient home cooking.
Andros island is a jewel of the Cyclades group, it’s villages quaint and the people, especially nice and the local food, delicious.
This property is for those who crave privacy and are prepared to go off the beaten track to be rewarded with a setting that, you would think, couldn’t be bought.
A vehicle is essential and our choice of a 4 x 4 allowed us a great way to explore Andros and to access the steep, sometimes rocky, pathway to the Stone Villa.
Simoni provided everything we needed to get us to the meeting point where we were escorted by her wonderful caretaker, Luciano. Luciano is the most lovely person and like the property....he is amazing!
I would love to keep this place a selfish secret, but reluctantly, I have to recommend to everyone who plans to visit Andros.
It’s a long way from Australia, but we will be back some day. Thank you Simoni for sharing Paradise with us 😎
There are too many great things to say about our experience with this place (we would give it more stars if that was an option)! Firstly, his family’s hospitality was incredible. We were welcomed by his wonderful mother who gave us a tour of his spectacular and rustic place. She had wonderful amenities and fresh fruit, juice and everything else we needed waiting for us! The place is very very spacious, luxurious, and absolutely immaculate. They have thought of absolutely everything that a traveller would need (even Netflix, which was such a nice and relaxing thing when you have been travelling for over a month and just want to chill out on some evenings before bed). When we had questions about museums and car rentals, etc, the hosts would respond immediately and would even call the museums to ensure they were open and gather other information. We truly hope you reading this will rent this absolute gem of a place—-the experience is phenomenal and you will not regret it!!! Plus, you really are less than one minute away from the ferry—- it’s ridiculously cool! The best thing about this place is the huge veranda with view of the entire port where you can relax and see the beautiful sunrise and sunset! This place is definetly a gem!
