About The Owner

We have been involved for over thirty years in an international career and we are experienced travellers ourselves, who understand very well the aspirations and possible frustrations during vacationing and living outside of ones home. We currently live in London, and we have two young adults , with whom we have been spending all our summer vacations for the last 30 years in Andros.

The Owner purchased this villa in 1996

Why The Owner chose Greece

Since we have been spending our summer vacations over the last 30 years in Andros, and over the last 20 years we have owned our own property there, we wanted to give a chance to other holidaymakers to experience the magnificence of this island.

What makes this villa unique

The house is filled with antique furniture that has been passed down to us from past generations, and other hand-picked items, all of which have sentimental value.

Great selection books in english french german and of course greek (ancient and modern), a piano, 7*14 swimming pool, lush gardens .

The Olive Grove,Luxurius Cycladic villa with private swimming pool and sea view
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at The Olive Grove. The villa is located away from the crowds, with a stunning view down towards the sea. The villa is huge, comfortable and stocked with everything you could need for your stay. Maria is the most amazing host - she helped us out with a number of issues which made our stay even more enjoyable. There are great beaches and all the shops / restaurants that you could need within a 5-10 minute drive. Andros island is lot quieter than some of the more popular tourist destinations, but this gives it that much more charm (in our opinion). A car is a must for this villa.

We stayed at this beautiful villa for a week. We liked everything about the villa and the setting. The view, the AL-fresco eating at the shaded patio, many places to relax inside and especially outside. The pool - it's BIG enough to swim laps!

The kitchen is fully equipped , including a Nespresso machine;-). The location is little bit off the beaten path, but only 5 minute drive to the beautiful beaches and nice local tavernas. The owner of the villa Ms. Maria is very kind, responsive and gave us many useful tips on eating out, shopping for food, beaches and points of interest.

I highly recommend this property, if you like non-touristy places, with lots of local character. We only did couple of hikes, because July is quite hot, but hoping to come back one day to do more. Andros is famous for it's natural beauty and there are MANY hiking trails, which were recently reopened and are very well marked and maintained. We rented this house for a family reunion and it comfortably accommodated all 10 of us. Thank you Ms. Maria and Mr. Costa for making our time at Andros so special!

Andros is one of the most beautiful and diverse cycladic islands. Apart from exquisite beaches, more than thirty, this is an island of culture and of the arts. The Goulandris Museum (http://www.moca-andros.gr/en/) at the chora of andros is a world class museum, each year host of high caliber artists , the Archaelogical Museum (http://odysseus.culture.gr/h/1/eh151.jsp?obj_id=3282) and the Museum of Paleopolis exhibit the past of ancient andros, kydonieos museum specializes in modern greek painters.

Andros has also numerous monasteries dating to the byzantine times with many noteworthy icons. The island is a paradise for walkers throughout the year. There are signed walks allover the island at www.androsroutes.gr .Agios Petros is an excellent beach for surfing with an experienced surfing center (rents and lessons)

Culinary pleasures are also abudent with formal restaurants, gastro tavernas and simple , but indeed gourmet, beach tavernas. For our guests that want to dine at the villas without having to cook the near by well known Yannoulis taverna (+30 228 207 1385) will be more than happy to cater.

With regard to medi care there is a medical center at Gavrio, 3 km from the villas , and a most experienced doctor who serves that area of the island. A dentist is also available.

There are a lot of very scenic villages inland, some of them with great sea views .

Being traditionally an agricultural, fisheries and shipowners community, Andros has escaped from massive tourism and appeals to the more sophisticated visitor.

We as your hosts and lovers of the island for more than three decades ( and experienced world travellers) will be eager and proud to offer you information and tips so as to make your first stay at Andros, be that the case, the start of an enduring love relationship for the senses the mind.
