About the property

Kea, also known as Tzia, is one of the closest islands to Athens. There are few hotels on the island, so mainly private residents are rented out in the summer months. Most of these houses are made from local stone, giving Kea its unique architecture. Kea is not a tourist island and has therefore kept its original charm. There are three to four ferry boats going to and from the island every day.

Villa Petra is located on a hillside, offering spectacular views of the surrounding area and the Aegean sea. Though the villa is in a quiet location, only 1.5 kilometers away is the picturesque Marina of Vourkari, with its restaurants, bars and cafes. The closest sandy beaches to the villa are Gialiskari and Otzia only a 5 minute drive. This villa is ideal for those that want to have a quiet and relaxing time by the pool during the day, but have easy access to the restaurants and night life.

Villa Petra is on the ground floor of a large villa. The two upper floors of the villa are Villa Thea, which is also rented out. The only thing the two properties share is the swimming pool, with its large terrace. Villa Petra however, has a private terrace to the side of the villa with a pergola with a seating and dining area.

The villa has been tastefully decorated and gives one a feeling of peace and tranquility. The villa has a living room with a fully equipped open-plan kitchen, two bedrooms with double beds and a bathroom with a shower. In the living room there are two sofa beds, suitable for young children.

Amenities: Air-conditioning, internet, swimming pool (shared), TV, music system, linen and towels, access to a washing machine, parking, refrigerator, oven, Hobs, microwave, Nespresso machine, filter coffee machine, kettle, sandwich maker, mosquito blinds on most windows, pool shower, private terrace with dining table and seating area.

Kea, also known as Tzia is one of the closest islands to mainland Athens. There are three to 4 ferry boats a day going to and from the island. Tzia, is not a tourist island, though recently it has become known. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday Kea is the Island for you.

Kea was an independent Islands with 4 kings (B.C.). Until about 300 years ago there were 95,000 inhabitants, now there are 1,500. As there are very few hotels, mostly private residents are rented out in the summer months. Kea has about 45 beaches, however, most are only accessible by boat.

Beaches- Koundouraki (to the south), Otzia (to the north), Gialiskari (to the west), Xyla (to the west) and Spathi (to the East), Pisses (to the south west), are all organized sandy beaches. At Koundouraki and Spathi they also have water sports. Of course there are many more beaches that you can go to by car (all sandy) Kalidonixi, Orco, Sikamia and the list goes on.

Walking trails - Kea also has about 13 to 15 well known ancient walking trails. Some for beginners and others for experiences trekkers.

Boats for hire - If you have a boat license you can rent a small speed boat and go to some of the inaccessible beaches (weather permitting). If you do not have a license there is a diving shop that has experienced captains that can take you round the island.

Scuba Diving - There is a professional scuba diving club, working out of Vourkari and Koudouros. Kea has some of the best known ship wrecks just off its shores. The Britannic, the sister ship of the Titanic is just off the coast of Kea (about 120 meters down). She is the biggest ship in the world that is down at the bottom of the sea in one piece. There are also some French, Spanish, British and Greek ships down. Kea also

has some nice reefs. So if you like diving, a great experience. Last year was the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the Britannic, National Geographic, BBC and filming crews from all over the world came to Kea.

Ruins - A lot of Kea has ruins, as the island had 4 kings, each kingdom with its own currency. The kingdoms were in Korissia, Pisses and Karthea. Karthea, on the south east side of the island was made a UNESCO world heritage site this summer (2017). Karthea was

discovered about 120 years ago, partially below the sea. Though a lot of the artifacts are missing, she is mostly intact. Karthea is considered the second Acropolis of Greece.

Local Products - Tzia is known for some great local products. The honey they produce, is I believe the best you can find anywhere. The local meat is also considered very good, they come from Athens to buy meat. The olive oil is also very good as are the jams and some of the local wines.

Roads - Not all the roads on Kea are concrete, this I believe adds to its charm and the idea of being on a island. So, if you want to reach some of the difficult beaches, like Xyla and Spathi I suggest a 4 X 4.

Chora- Ioulida, is nestled in the hills, 12 minutes from the Port. Chora has narrow cobbled street, no cars are allowed inside the town. It has restaurants, cafes, some boutiques, bakers, mini-market, chemist, medical center,supermarket (3 minutes away), a wine bar, museum. the ancient castle (ruins) and the famous stone Lion (9 B.C.), just outside the town.

Korissia - the Port. The port has 2 bakeries, a supermarket, chemist, ice cream ship, pizza, bars,a fishmongers, a butchers, cafes, restaurants. At night they close the road and all the tables are laid right up to the end of the pier. You can even buy fresh fish straight from the local fishing trawlers and fresh vegetables off the back of a farmers truck.

Vourkari - The picturesque Marina. Vourkari is 2 minutes by car from the Port. Vourkari has some well known fish taverans, some bars, cafes and boutiques. You can find some fresh fish here or enjoy a meal of lobster spaghetti, a well known delicacy of one of the restaurants. Vourkari, like Korissia have quite a busy night life.

Otzia - the blue lagoon. Otzia is to the north of the island, about 7 minutes from the port. Otzia has two restaurants and is ideal for people with small children.

Koudouros - Koundouros is to the south of the island, it has 4 sandy beaches, the best known is Koundouraki. Koudouros does not have any shops, nearby 10 minutes by car is Pisses which has two restaurants and a well equipped mini-market. Koundouraki has a bar and two restaurants as well as water-sports.

Sunsets - The west side of the island offers some spectacular sunsets, so get the camera ready.

Getting around the island -The island has 6 taxis, the drivers are all friendly and helpful. There are three rent-a-car shops on the island, but I suggest booking a car well in advance or you can bring one over on the ferry boat.

Kea a holiday to remember!!
