We are a family of 5 persons. Father, mother 2 daughters at the age of 17 and 19, and a son at the age of 11. The villa has been built by me, Panos, the father of the Zouganeli family, who is a civil engineer. We live in Athens but we love Andros very much; therefore we bought this land, we got married there, we built the villa, we baptised all our children there and since then we enjoy very often this unique island and our beautiful house.
PANOS purchased this Villa in 2005
Why PANOS chose South Aegean
We chose this land to create our villa because Hora of Andros is a very safe and family oriented place and not mass tourism targeted. Our property is close and with very easy access to everything you might wish. Exquisite modern art and archaeological museums, byzantine monasteries, excellent beaches, water sports, beautiful nature with water springs, restaurants, shops, beach bars, nightlife and at the same time very quiet and tranquil.
What makes this Villa unique
Breathtaking views from all levels including an infinity pool. Views of the Aegean Sea and the extraordinary, unique capital of Andros, Hora or Chora, being built on a very narrow peninsula. In this property you can enjoy swimming, conversations, reading, relaxing (ideal for yoga experience), working out, steam bath, playing games (table tennis etc.) all within an inspiring aesthetic and tranquil environment. Horse riding for up to 4 persons is also available at a small extra cost.

A magnificent villa with real warmth
A simply stunning villa with beautiful owners and staff who will welcome you and ensure that you have the best time.....it’s true that the photographs do not encapsulate the full beauty and space, nor the serious attention to detail that went into its construction ....the view is stunning and it’s very close to the walking routes and easy to walk into Hora....a lovely place to stay x
Lucy thank you so much for your kind words. We are very happy that you enjoyed your holidays in villa Dialogoi with your friends. You were all very nice and we were happy to have you as our guests. Hope to see you again in the future.
Best villa we've ever stayed in!
Villa Dialogoi was without a doubt the best villa we have every stayed in! Every single detail has been thought of, from the decor to the facilities, to the beautiful bedrooms!
There were a group of 10 of us, but the house still felt very spacious with plenty of room. Each room was beautiful in its own way, with not room feeling like the short straw!
We ended up having the chef on three nights as we didn't want to leave the villa as it was too nice! The food was delicious and allowed us to really get stuck into Greek cuisine!
Finally, Krista and Panos were fantastic hosts. They answered all of our requests up to and during our stay and made sure everything was answered quickly and efficiently.
We all agreed that we would struggle to ever beat our week there with any other villa - looks like we'll be going back!
Dear guest thank you so much for your kind words. We will be glad to welcome you again in the future.
First of all I want to thank the hosts and Marites for making it very easy to communicate at all time.
The Villa is spectacular very confortable we had the upper room with private bathroom and plenty of closet space.
The view from the room basically a dream, didn't want to close the shutters so we can see the sun rise.
We enjoyed very much the pool space with all the amenities, fridge, ice maker (our favourite), milk shaker and specially nespresso coffee machine all at the pool bar....WOW....
not to mentioned we discover last minute that the pool shower had a steam room. The pool and the house was always cleaned and well maintained daily with the help of Marites which we appreciated very much all very worth the money.
We went for a wedding , we had a beautiful surprise in our fridge the next morning a bottle of champagne, and a very beautiful and thoughtful gift for us and the newly weds.
We didn't want to leave the Villa, so we spend as much time as possible to enjoy it. The wifi was great the music connection every where in the house. The pictures are great but to see it in person is actually more amazing. Very well furnished with all you need to entertained , cook and play......kids friendly .
You will definitely enjoy.....we all loved it...thanks for everything Panos, Krista and Marites........
Dear Sandra thank you so very much for your kind words. We are very happy that you enjoyed your holidays in villa "Dialogoi" in Andros island.
We are also very pleased that everything went well with the wedding. We will happily welcome you again in the future whenever you wish to come back.
We are still recovering from leaving Dialogi after an amazing week of relaxation and exploration of Andros. For months I’ve gotten quizzical looks when I tell fellow Americans our island of choice for our Greek adventure would be Andros. While they were all with the cruise ships and crowds on better known islands we were in PARADISE with views to die for, an amazing cook and a short drive into a quintessential island village with shops and restaurants to rival the mainland. The pictures don’t do this justice as there are dozens of “moments” to be had in this home - views, breezes, cozy bedrooms and amazing art. Panos and Krista (and team!) were unbelievable hosts! We were celebrating two birthdays and were two families traveling together. They took every care from detailed directions ahead of our trip to a welcome basket and champagne on our final night/birthday. Many memories made and we hope to return one day soon!
Thank you so much for your very kind words. It was indeed a pleasure having you as our guests and we hope to see you again in the future. (Tell to your friends that Andros is a different but a very nice Greek, Cycladic island!!!
Enjoy the rest of your summer.
Fabulous Villa, Beautiful Island
Firstly, we would like to thank Panos and Krista for being such excellent hosts. Villa Dialogoi was a fantastic setting for a wonderful holiday. The villa has everything you need and the decor is both very comfortable and beautiful. We would also like to thank Marites, who did an excellent job cleaning without us noticing! The views from the villa, the great size and the excellent pool meant you were always happy to relax, however when we went out into Andros, wow!
This island is a definite hidden gem! The scenery is great, for those who enjoy walking there are plenty of options, and there are lots of beaches so they never feel crowded! A wonderful place, and one I definitely intend to return to. Highly recommended, especially for a relaxing break.
Thank you very much for your so kind words. We are really very happy that all of you enjoyed so much your holidays in villa Dialogoi and in Andros island. We are pleased that you were our guests and we will for sure be very happy to welcome you again in the future. All the best to all of you.
Our villa called 'Dialogoi' (from the word dialogue) is located near Hora (the capital) of Andros (only 10 minutes drive) on a hill overlooking Aegean Sea.
Andros has always been a wealthy island since medieval times through silk production and in more recent times through shipping with an interest in the Arts.
There are many interesting places to explore on the island like: Museums of international fame, such as the Museum of Modern Art and the Archaelogical Museum. The Naval Museum due to the great maritime tradition of the island.
A library called Kairis Library situated in Hora which is the house belonging to the philosopher Theofilos Kairis.
Ancient Paleopolis (archaeological site with a museum exhibiting sculpture of Classical and Roman eras), Ancient Zagora (one of the oldest settlements in Andros), Strofilas (prehistoric settlement dating back to 6,500 BC).
Many monasteries like: Monastery of Zoodoxhou Pigis ('The Life-Giving Source') dating back to the 9th century AD. Byzantine in style with a stunning wooden chapel. Monastery of Aghios Nikolaos which is dated also back to the 9th century. This is a magnificent building that overlooks the Achla valley. Monastery of the Panachrantou located in the village of Fallika. Monastery of Aghia Marina.
There are also some castles and towers: Castle of Hora (Venetian), castle at Kochilou (Venetian), Aghios Petros Tower (the most famous of all dating back to the 3rd - 4th century BC.
The architecture and landscape of Andros are very different to that of the rest of the Cyclades with green hillsides covered in stone terracing, crystal clear streams and natural springs of very high quality drinking water like Sariza and Lezina, unusual dove cots with square towers whose pigeon holes are decorated with geometric designs, rustic stone villages and handsome stone houses.
The capital of the island, known as Hora (Chora), is particularly attractive and unique standing on a sharp peninsula between the two sandy beaches of Nimborio and Paraporti, with an impressive marble promenade where there are very elegant restaurants, local tavernas offering delicious traditional food, cafes, bars and boutique shops but without the price tag of comparable islands such as Mykonos or Santorini.
The Sea of Andros, Aegean Sea, has a unique blue colour. The water is crystal clear, transparent and very clean. There many nice sandy beaches all around the island like:
Chryssi Ammos : with sun beds and coconut pulm umbrellas Pidima tis Grias: 'Old Lady's Jump', a small beach with an extraordinary landscape. In the water there is a strange rock which according to legend depicts the old lady who helped the Turks occupy the castle of Kochilou. Regretting her act, she climbed onto the rock and jumped into the sea.
Achla: Beautiful, serene beach with marvelous sand and turquoise water. A pretty chapel lies before the beach and a river behind. There is a small boat called 'Rania' that takes you there for the day or you can rent your own small boat for the day (no license required).
Zorkos: Located between two rocky outcrops, it is a lovely, long sandy beach with one small tavern with very nice food, using their own natural products.
Fellos, Aghios Petros, Vitali, Vori are some more very nice beaches.
Gialia, Piso Gialia, Nimborio, Paraporti are only 5 minutes driving from our villa 'Dialogoi'.
Andros is perfect for walking, fishing, swimming, sailing, windsurfing, skiing, snorkeling, bird watching and horse riding. There is a windsurfing school at Korthi. Watersports are also found at Batsi, Aghios Petros and Andros Yacht Club at Nimborio.
The Yacht Club is the main sailing club of the island. (You can use our membership and with only 5 euros each, you can enjoy the facilities (swimming, water sports, having lunch). Each summer sailing races are organized around the island.
Walking in Andros is really a very nice experience because there is a network of footpaths many of which are recently signposted and mapped for walkers. Following these paths you discover the history and tradition or Andros with wonderful nature, ancient waterways full of minerals and curative properties, many different species of wild flowers and herbs some of which are indigenous to Andros.
Bird Watching: You can watch unique Mavropetritis eagle from Madagascar.
Horse riding: Nice horses taking you around the wonderful nature of Andros. Provided at a small extra cost from our villa.
You can reach the island of Andros with a boat from Rafina port.
Rafina Port: 20 minutes from Athens airport Eleftherios Venizelos and 40 minutes from the center of Athens.
There is also a heliport adjacent to Hora (15 min away from our villa).
Hora of Andros , and our villa: 45 minutes' easy drive from the port of Andros, Gavrio.
