Things to do

Ruins of Palaeopolis:

The Ruins of Palaeopolis are located on the west side of the island of Andros. These ruins have yielded some of the most groundbreaking findings from the Mycenaean and Geometric periods. Walking through the ruins, one can see the ancient city of Paleopolis in its entirety; the city clearly had a marketplace, theatre, altars, and temples.

Goulandris Museum of Contemporary Art:

The Goulandris Museum of Contemporary Art was opened in 1979. The Museum houses a collection owned by Vasilis and Eliza Goulandris comprised of more than 300 works by both Greek and foreign artists. The old wing showcases an exhibit with works by Zogolopoulos, Chryssa, and others.

Archaeological Museum of Andros:

The Archaeological Museum of Andros was founded in 1981 and made possible by a grant from the Basil and Eliza Goulandris Foundation. The Museum houses collections from the Mycenaean era to the Roman era. Objects from the settlement at Zagora can be seen, as can pieces from the Proto-Byzantine period.

Sariza Spring at Apoikia:

Located northwest of the capital town of Andros, the Sariza Spring just outside of Apoikia is a sight worth seeing. The water at this point emerges from a lion's head. The ancient city of Palaeopolis is situated on the side of a steep hill, and the breakwater can be seen underwater at this point as well.

Cyclades Olive Museum:

Visit the Cyclades Olive Museum in Pitrofos. See the way in which olives were pressed in the late 1800s. The building dates back to the mid-1800s and also has beautiful stonework on the facade and inside. See the press room and the multi-storied factory that was typical of family oil mills at that time.

Achla Beach:

Visit Achla Beach, just north of Katafigio Agrias Park. The road to the beach is best travelled by car, or one can take the boat around the island from the town of Andros. This boat is not in operation when the Etesian winds blow.

Weather on Andros

A Mediterranean climate dominates the Greek islands. Summers are hot and dry, with temperatures reaching the mid-30s in July and August. In colder months the temperature sinks to around 10°C. Winds called the Etesians (or Meltemi in Turkish) blow every year from mid-May to mid-September. These winds are most active in the late afternoon and die down in the evening. Sailors are mostly concerned with the Etesians, as they can pick up without warning.

Travel to Andros

Travelling to Andros is best done by plane and then by ferry. Fly into the Athens Airport (ATH) and then take the bus to Rafina Port. Ferries leaving the port for Andros take about two hours to arrive at their destination. Ferries also depart for Andros from various other islands, including Mykonos, Naxos, and Paros.

The views across the bay are spectacular but the walk in to the town is not suitable for very small children but ours who are 7,5 and 3 (he's a big 3 year old), had no trouble walking down the hill and in to the old town which is very pretty but small. this is not a tourist area so don't expect lots of nightlife and bars etc. There are some nice Tavernas though. We only went to a couple of local beaches which vary from grubby to stunning. Ask Stavros where the best beaches are as local knowledge is key. Getting there. We flew in to Athens and hired cars there before getting a ferry. If i was going to go again i would get a taxi to the airport and then hire a car in Gavrio (there are tons of places). It's a bit of a trek to get this this house but well worth it when you get there. The house. The pictures do not do it justice, this house is amazing. It's massive, plenty of space for 2/3 families. The grounds are safe for kids and the pool is huge. The beds are a bit hard but plenty of time to catch up on sleep in the day on the loungers. There is a great BBQ area with ice maker and beer fridge. The house has internet (bit intermittent but you're on holiday). The kitchen is quite small but we hardly used it as the local restaurants will deliver if you don't fancy going out. Stavros was not there the week we were but he was always available on the phone to offer advise of to make arrangements. Overall. A great property for people willing to make the journey and who want a more authentic Greek experience. This property would cost at least 3 times as much in a more popular location (trust me I've been to them). Ideal for adventurous young families.

The house has breathtaking views of the Aegean sea, and its whole setup is most relaxing. The owners were extremely welcoming and provided most useful tips on the island.

The house is beautiful, very charismatic, cosy with nice interior. The location is good, right up in the mountains, close to Andros town which is a wonderful town and also close to a few beaches. I would recommend a stay there and hope that I will be able to come bach.
