We really enjoyed our stay at this wonderful property on the beautiful Greek island of Andros. This is a traditional old stone home high up on a hillside a few kilometres of the island's main 'resort' of Batsi. I say 'resort' as it is still really quite low key and mainly attracts Greek holidaymakers/second home owners from Athens. The house has the most extraordinary panoramic sea views west towards other islands. You could sit on the terrace all day if there wasn't so much to explore on the island! Inside, there is a well-equipped kitchen then a cosy living room leading to two good sized bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms. There is another bathroom next to the kitchen and next to this some fairly steep steps lead up to a third bedroom which we didn't use, connecting to a small roof terrace. The decor is traditional and the whole place is set is mature gardens and is very private. I'd say not suitable for toddlers as the garden is terraced and there is a small reservoir pool, but for our six-year-old twins it was perfect and they loved it. Andros itself is a great island for a peaceful family holiday. If you want it, there are a few beaches with beach bars and music to accompany your sunbathing, but we found it much more fun to search out some of the more secluded beaches on the east coast. You'll need a car to get to the house and to explore, it's quite a big island and the main town on the other side of Andros is well worth a couple of trips. There is a good taverna within a kilometre of the house and lots of choice down around Batsi plus an adequate supermarket for self catering. There are loads of walking trails on the island, and plenty of nature, and one of the lovely aspects is the many mountain springs dotted around the villages, where you can fill up your water bottle with cool spring water. All in all a great spot for a peaceful get away from it all break on an island not so well known outside Greece.
This was the second time we have visited Villa DIALOGOI and the spendour of this beautiful spot in Andros was even more spectacular this time around. The welcome we received from the villa owners Krista and Panos was so warm and inviting and it was wonderful to see Marites, their amazing housekeeper again.
I have visited Andros for 30 years which gives me ample qualification to say that this villa is one of the best the island has to offer!
