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.

                                                          For once so much better than the pictures - and the pictures & photos are amazing! We were overwhelmed by the luxuriousness of the place. Lovely and spacious. Met all our needs and beyond. Thank you Korinna for providing such a gem on such a beautiful island. Our 4th visit to Andros, so i think we'll be back! Thanks also to Vasilis & Aliona - perfect caretakers. We are sad to have to leave but look forward to being here again. With many thanks for a lovely time! Blaise

                                                          Ce fut une très belle surprise en arrivant dans cette villa. Elle est très bien agencée et la vue est très belle. Quant au propriétaire Stavros c'est un homme formidable, très serviable et très attentionné. C'est avec beaucoup de plaisir que nous avons communiqué cette adresse à des amis pour venir en été.

                                                          This is how holidays in Cyclades must be...

                                                          My family and I ,had the pleasure to be accommodated at Etoile De Mer Villa last July. I really do not know how best to describe our stay: "splendid"? to say the least! Our first reaction when arrived at the villa was just a WOW! But with a better look of the view and the design of the house we were lost for words. Vanna and Pavlos have built a great place not just to spend your holiday but a great place to live and enjoy the summer time....staying at Etoile De Mer villa is peaceful and relaxing! The permisses are build with respect to the local architecture and have all the modern conveniences. A great location also, Andros, whether you want to visit Chora and other villages nearby, or just stay somewhere private without any activity. The view from the villa is just magnificent. Almost from every angle from the house you get the Aegean sea in front of you. There is a beautiful terrace for just sitting there having a glass of wine, an amazing BBQ & dinning area but what we liked most was the big infinity pool; we just coudn't escape from there, we had to spend half of each day every single day of our stay just sitting there tanning or sit inside the pool and enjoy the amazing sea views right from the edge. We are looking forward to visit again Etoile De Mer in 2016. Thank you Vana and Pavlos for the great hospitality!
