About Sotiria Antonopoulou

I live in Athens, this is our summer house. We like to share our love for Kea with our guests. We are very gland to offer them a truly authentic experience for their holidays, and to show them all the hidden treasures of our island! On arrival I will be at the ferry to welcome them, escort to The Art House, show them around and answer all the questions they may have. A welcome hamper is provided full of local products and homemade sweets. If I’m not in the island, I will make sure you also have a local contact person to answer any urgent queries or to provide solution to an unexpected problem. Don't forget, Greek Filoxenia is more than just hospitality..!!

Why Sotiria Antonopoulou chose Greece

We built this house and we put all our love and care to every detail. At first sight you can see everywhere in the house our love for art, as it is decorated with contemporary art paintings and minimal interiors designs, that give it its special character and appeal. Discover this beautiful and unspoilt place but please keep it secret!

What makes this house unique

The house’s privileged location offers privacy, yet is only 5 minutes away from Vourkari village with its shops, restaurants, supermarket, bars and cafés. Two family friendly sandy beaches, Gialiskari and Otzias, are only 3-5 minutes drive away. The house's many terraces let guests choose between the different views and possibilities of the property. The fantastic location of this house makes it a great base for exploring the island!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa bellissima ampia piena di terrazze e situata in un posto tranquillo ma a poca distanza da ristoranti o negozi per la spesa. Noi eravamo in 5 due coppie piú un bambino e siamo stati benissimo perché ognuno aveva i suoi spazi. La casa é super attrezzata di tutto quello che potrebbe servire. Veramente un ottimo servizio anche da parte della proprietaria molto molto gentile e disponibile. Consiglio assolutamente questa splendida villa!

Perfect holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last two weeks of march at the beautiful The Art House in Kea. The perfect location on top of a hill with great view of the valley and the sea was more we had expected! And specially the arrangement of the house was marvelous.

In the house our five-person family found all we needed.When we had any questions, the owner Sotiria was friendly and helpful and gave perfect tips.

We will definitely will come back !

Art House Adventure

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a weeks stay at this beautiful house on Kea. There were 4 adults and 2 children. We had a wonderful time. The home is beautifully decorated, with several outside decks, all with spectacular views. The Island of Kea is charming, there is a beautiful hill town and historic ruins to explore as well as several nice swimming coves. Sotiria was delightful and made us feel very comfortable and welcome. She took us into town, showed us around, even took us to her favorite butcher! Thanks for such a memorable and special week.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week long stay at The Art House in Kea. We're a family of three, with a little boy who is two. We loved everything about The Art House: lovely interiors, gorgeous views, great location, really clean and well-maintained. From the moment we were in touch with the owner, Sotiria, we knew we had made the right decision to stay here as she was just so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be coming back next year.

Ancora meglio che nelle foto

  • 5 of 5

Ottima la posizione a 5 minuti dal porto ma tranquilla, fantastico il panorama. Una casa ben costruita, ottimamente arredata e fornita di tutto. Dal vivo è ancora meglio che sulle foto, che non le rendono merito. Cordiale e disponibile la proprietaria. 10 e lode.

Delightful holiday experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults, 2 children aged 6 and 10) have just enjoyed 2 wonderful weeks at the Art House in Kea this July. What a beautiful house in a wonderful location! Everything worked as it should and Sotiria was great. She kindly came to the harbour to meet us off the ferry and lead us on the short journey to her nice home in the hills, and then see that we had all we needed to get off to a good start both in the house and on the island.

The house is beautifully decorated and makes for a very comfortable and charming holiday residence, with lots of little terraces outside to enjoy the sun or shade depending on your preference. And one can happily relax on the terrace in the evening and watch the spectacular sunsets !

The island itself was delightful and we all enjoyed both the nearby beaches and those a little further away (thank you for the helpful tips Sotiria!). The house is conveniently located close to a small boutique hotel with a great restaurant which we also visited on a few occasions and there were a number of other nice restaurants on the island where we enjoyed some good food and wine.

All in all, a very enjoyable and memorable trip for the whole family and we look forward to returning to this lovely house for another magical summer break.
