About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

In the village of Akamatra 5 km from the harbor of Evdilos we rent a bio climatic house built from stone and earth 250 years ago.

We restored it with love and great deal of personal labor and we hope to share with our guests the beauty of our island.

The house is located in a site with magnificent view, surrounded by gardens full of fresh vegetables and trees.

The property has a traditional feel to it with exposed stonework and wooden beams and has two bedrooms: One accommodates a couple and two accommodate one person.

The house has kitchen and bathroom and it is equipped with T.V, DVD and washing machine. All the soaps and shampoos are made using old recipes and pure biological products.

Ikaria at it's finest!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Georgia's beautiful and amazing home is the true Ikarian experience! Georgia was extremely helpful with any questions I had. Her property has many gardens areas with fresh rosemary, sage, cherry tomatoes etc. the Uwe every morning was breathtaking! And at night the stars were all out and about. It is a peaceful and tranquil place to stay. The village of Akamatra is 10 minute walk that has restaurants and a mini market.

I highly suggest you rent a car or a bike because the other areas a bit of a distance away. Also if staying in the summer you should bring some mosquito repellent. They tend to stay up in the mountains :)

I would definitely return and stay at Georgia's home again. I am extremely grateful for the experience ! Thank you Georgia!!!

A beautiful month at Akamatra Farm!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful month (May/June) in Georghia's place above the village of Akamatra and can't imagine a better way to come to know Ikaria. The view was lovely and there were many excellent possibilities for walks along dirt roads and paths in the valley and the surrounding mountains. Since Akamatra is almost precisely in the center of the island, it also makes a terrific base for exploration of the entire island by car. Moreover, Georghia is an ideal host, generous and kind, always there when you need her but also respectful of privacy. She is an incredible resource in terms of her knowledge of farming, flora and fauna, and local history and culture. The house is surrounded by small farmed terraces--Georghia's and the neighbor's--and we were kept in fresh (organically grown) strawberries, apricots, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinis and fresh herbs. We enjoyed getting to know the neighboring farmer, as well as the billy goat and Dick the dog. The house itself traditional--which is to say small and rustic, and extremely well built. The kitchen is very nice, and it has a built-in sitting area that makes it double as a cosy (if tiny) living space. But the best place to hang out is on the terraces outside, which provide both sun and shade for relaxation and dining. Akamatra's taverna is really excellent, and the sweet village has a tiny but well stocked store, a bakery, and at least two cafes. We hope to return to Ikaria, and if we do, we'll definitely be in touch with Georghia!

This is why you come to Ikaria

  • 5 of 5

Even better than we imagined - hope to return next year. Georgia is an exceptional host - taking time to explain the way of life and to laugh together about the day. She kept us stocked with local produce and treats that was piling up everywhere. We didn't imagine living on fresh goat cheese, the world's best tomatoes and olive oil for a few days, but that's exactly what we did. Wake to roosters (not on property) and fall asleep to the wind in the trees. Akamatra town (fresh bread comes out at 10 or 11) and some excellent hikes/walks are minutes away. No need to plan your day here - just set out and see where you end up. A good base location for exploring the western half of the island, from Armenistis beach to mountain wineries. For parties larger than 2, note that the bedrooms are separated by a soft door, not a wood door. Ikaria is not your typical island, and Georgia's Akamatra Farm is quintessential Ikaria.

Utterly authentic taste of ikarian life

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved the property, the house, the goats, and the garden. For those wishing to inspire themselves with a true sense of the car in life this is the place. For those interested in the luxuries of fun resort, this is not the place. That said, Georgia our host was a wealth of information regarding the islands traditions and I hope to return very soon.

Gemütliches Haus mit toller Aussicht und supernetten Vermieterin

  • 5 of 5

Der Urlaub auf Ikaria war super entspannend und ließ bei uns keine Wünsche offen. Die Vermieterin war sehr nett und aufgeschlossen in Hinblick auf unsere Wünsche und Fragen. Sie überraschte uns mit einem Korb voller Tomaten aus eigener Ernte und hatte viele Tipps für unsere Ausflüge in der näheren Umgebung. Das Haus ist sehr alt und durch Anbauten etwas verwinkelt. Für 4 Personen reicht der Platz definitiv, zumal man durch die Außenterassen zusätzlich an Platz gewinnt. Allerdings waren wir die meiste Zeit des Tages unterwegs und haben unser Domizil vorwiegend zum Schlafen genutzt. Wenn man etwas von der Insel sehen möchte macht es Sinn, sich ein Auto zu mieten. Wenn man die Hauptstraßen verlassen möchte, sollte es nicht der kleine Fiat Panda sein :) sondern ein geländegängiges Auto mit Allrad. Die Insel eignet sich definitiv für alle, die ihr Leben fernab der Touristenmeilen etwas entschleunigen wollen. Wir waren im Oktober dort - Wetter und Wasser einfach himmlich!!!
