About the property

Ikia Vacation Houses

Ikia Vacation Houses operate all year round as a self serviced lodgings and each house can accommodate up to 5 persons. Each house can be rented separately. Listed prices are per house.

Built from stone and wood, by my great great grandfather and owned by my family for the past 100 years, the house will offer you the warmth, cosiness and tranquility that we all are longing for.

The Old Village, where Ikia House was built, can be accessed either by a 10 minute car drive, or by a 30 minute walk up the old donkey track from the port of Patitiri. During the summer a bus goes on regular trips up and down the hill. The establishment is about 200m far from the car park at the old threshing floors (Palia Alonia) at the entrance of the Old Village. It can not be accessed directly by car, as is the case with many traditional houses in the Old Village. The last 50m must be covered on foot. It consists of two fully renovated two-floor houses

The Green house has a double bed bedroom with a fireplace on the ground floor. On the first floor, one can find a multi-purpose room with a dinning table for four and a double bed, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with a shower and a small balcony.

The Brown house has a ground floor multi-purpose room with a fully equipped kitchen, a dinning table for four, a couch (converted into a double bed), a fireplace and a bathroom with a shower. Finally, the first floor has a bedroom that consists of a double and a single bed with a small balcony and a veranda.

Apart from the fully equipped kitchen, a hair dryer, an iron, a filter coffee machine and a kettle are available. The houses are equipped with Hunter ceiling fans. There is also a washing machine available upon request. However, you will not find a TV. Our purpose is for you to relax as much as possible and enjoy the tranquility of the place. Nevertheless, tranquility is not our sole asset. Looking downhill one can see the green hill that plunges into the beach of Megalos Mourtias. The uphill view is equally rewarding. Traditional houses, planted in a green landscape, is what you can enjoy not only in paintings but also from our balcony.

About George Tsoukanas

I was born in Athens, however I grew up in a smaller town called Halkida. I returned to Athens for studies and work later on. After 23 years of work and looking for a simpler and less stressful way of living, I resigned from my job as a bank branch manager and decided to start a new life in my place of origin.

Why George Tsoukanas chose Alonnisos

This island has a unique combination of beautiful beaches and forests that reach the seaside. It is a place one can fall in love with. As when in love, your senses sharpen, you see, smell and hear as never before. Furthermore, this property belongs to my family for four generations.

What makes this house unique

In Ikia one can find out how houses were built on this island 100 years ago, but without giving up modern facilities.

A beautiful and relaxing experience!

  • 5 of 5

The Brown House is lovely, very clean and well appointed. We loved the terrace on the upper floor. Breakfast and dinner there were wonderful experiences and the views of the sea and Chora were excellent. The rooms were spacious and very well (and tastefully) furnished. The owner was extremely helpful and kind, always willing to offer good tips and make our stay easy. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely come back.

A lovely quiet and comfortable home from home

  • 5 of 5

My children rated our recent holiday as 1001% brilliant, and yes they do understand percentages.. ! I would say the same, altogether it was impossibly lovely and all that i could have i hoped for. The house was perfect for us, modest and clean with everything that one could need, beautifully situated on the edge of the old village, on the hill above the port. The views are great, the breezes welcome, you can take or leave the hustle and bustle of the village centre, it's lovely to wander the small pedestrian streets and alleyways. George and his family made us feel very welcome and were so kind and helpful throughout with our queries about beaches, travel, hiring a car. .. anything. It was good to have the car and it allowed us to explore the island; its too hot to walk far in summer though we did manage 25 mins down to the nearest beach, harder coming back up but perfectly possible ! The island is unspoilt, not over -touristy, even on the busyiest beaches and the sea - ?-just amazing, clean and sparkling. There is a feeling of the authentic, essential Greece here, with Greek hospitality that was really special and I am sure we will return. I don't hesitate to recommend a stay here.

Great stay at Ikia's brown house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one month at Ikia's brown house and we felt like at home. The premise was very clean and well equiped, as mentionned in the announcement.

We appreciated a lot the modern kitchen as well as the laundry machine and the clean towels and sheets every 5 days ! The mosquitos nets at every openings and the ceiling big fans are a plus.

The view from the terrace is amazing, both towards the sea and the old village. A great spot to enjoy meals and quality time !

The house is ideally located because the place is peacefull but also close to the shops of the village.

George and Anna are very special renters.

During the preparation of our trip, George was very reactive to our questions via emails.

He came to pick us up at the harbor. All along our stay, he and Anna were very discreet but in the mean time : on call when needed, welcoming, warm and open minded.

If we can come back, our choice is made !! 5 stars !

Beautiful house for a beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

We came for the second time in Alonissos and we've decided to stay in the Chora to experience the life in the village.

We choose the brown house from Ikia thanks to a suggestion received by a friend that has been there the year before.

We have to say the house was a real discovery.

The house is cozy with lot of comforts, well equipped, clean and fresh. We enjoyed the beautiful terrace with an unique view to the village and sea. The property is very near to the restaurants of the old village that you can reach with few steps walking in the middle of olives, grapes and plums trees. This house is also the best basis to start discovering the island that is simply astonishing.

More than that the owners George and Anna give us warm welcome and loving attentions during all our stay making us feel as at home.

If this summer we enjoyed our stay even more than the first time it was thanks to George and this house. Thank You George!

Massimo & Stefania
