Kea, also known as Tzia, is one of the closest islands to Athens. Kea is a hidden gem in the Cycladic Islands and has its own unique style. As there are very few hotels on the island, private houses are rented out, most or all of them made of local stone. The island has 45 beaches, most of them accessible by boat. Kea is the ideal island for those that want to relax and have a great vacation.
The villa, which is 500sq meters, is set on a 5,000sq meters plot of land on the waterfront, with direct access to a small sandy beach. The villa is tastefully and luxuriously decorated to the highest standards and is ideal for those who want to relax by the pool or visit the Marina of Vourkari (only 2 minutes by car), with its well known restaurants, cafes and bars, a place frequented by the yachting crowd.
The property has a large outdoor terrace with a sweet water swimming pool and ample room for sunbathing. At the lower end of the property there is a gate and a path that leads directly to a small sandy beach. The villa has 2 buildings, the main house and the guest house. The main house has a large living room with high ceilings and a fully equipped kitchen with a dining area.

Kea was once called the Water Island, Ydroussa, and it is believed that the name is connected to the water nymphs, that lived here according to mythology. Because it was such a pretty island, gods got jealous, and sent a lion to ravage the land. The nymphs fled, and as a consequence, the island dried out. The Keans then asked Apollo's son Aristaeus for help, and he built a temple to Zeus, who apart from being the highest god, also was the one who sent rain. This pleased him, and the nymphs and waters returned, giving Kea a fertile soil with good crops. The island has been inhabited since Neolithic times. In the 13th century, the island was ruled by the Venetians, and 300 years later by the Turks. Meanwhile, Kea was often raided by pirates, and the locals suffered greatly. It is therefore not surprising that Kea was one of the first Greek islands to enroll in the War of Independence in 1821. Chora (Ioulida) : is the capital of the island. It is a 10 minutes ride from the villa. It is a picturesque town with narrow cobbled street (not accessible by car), with restaurants, cafes, shops ATM's, chemists and more. The view from Chora over the Port of Korissia and the sea is spectacular. When sunset comes, find a cafe, have a glass of wine and be amazed!!! Vourkari, Kea: The little harbor of Vourkari is a 1 minute drive from the house and a delightful place popular with the yachting crowd. Although there is no beach in Vourkari itself, the lovely sandy beach at Gialiskari with its beach cafe is just round the corner. Vourkari has quite a busy nightlife and there are several good fish restaurants and a couple of trendy bars. There is also a mini-market, a couple of arts and crafts shops and some boutiques. Otzias Bay is only a 5 minute drive from the house .Otzia has a long stretched sandy beach with a lagoon section that makes it ideal for swimming for families with small children. The organized beaches of Spathi and Koundouraki, are ideal for those that like water sports. There is also an organized shop and diving office in Vouraki for those that want to go scuba diving and see some of the well known ship wrecks off the coast of Kea, like the Brittanic (the sister ship of the Titanic), that sunk 100 years ago. Unlike others, Kea remains a quaint, low profile, rugged island, with few tourists, and an abundance of pristine beaches, beautiful blue-green waters, and ancient cobblestone marked foot-paths, bird-watching nature reserves, few hotels and mostly, privately owned houses. Seasonally or permanently, to relax and enjoy, Kea boasts known names of the Greek and international jet-set in business, law, science, and art, as it appeals to the discerning visitor who seeks tranquility, authenticity and a genuinely Aegean environment.
