|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Despite being only 20 min. drive from the port it is situated in a pristine Cycladic environment on the steep slopes on the undeveloped west coast of Kea. This makes it necessary to have a Jeep type of car because of the unsurfaced road which however is not the exception for the make of the roads in Kea.
The simple and elegant house with pool offers spectacular sunset views over the Aegean sea and the mountains of the mainland.
It is designed to give bedrooms maximum privacy each one of which has a sea view through big windows.
Most of the bedrooms have double beds and have their own bathroom. There is a fully equipt kitchen and a living - dining room with T.V., video player, CD and radio player, and Wireless Internet.
Last but not least is the terrace with the swimming pool where one can enjoy swimming, sunbathing , eating, or whatever one is pleased to do having a marvellous view of the sea and the sunset.
There are two lovely and not crowded beaches quite near the house, Kalogiros that one can drive to ( only 7min.) and Vroskopos that one can drive to a point ( 5min.) and then walk down for about 10min. more.
It is ideal for family vocations but also for friends who want to spend their vocations together but at the same time to have their own privacy .
I was born in Athens.
When I finished high-shool I went to England for my degree and stayed there for six years.
Since then I live and work in Athens and I loved to travel a lot to get to know my country and other countries as well.
Katerina purchased this house in 2007
I first went to Kea in 1996 to a friend's newly built house and that is how I got to know the island, which made me love it. Although I had travelled a lot through the Greek islands this was the one that made me think that I would like to have a house here!
The beaches the nature the people the architecture of Ioulis and the way the villages - settlements are, plus that in only two hours from my home in Athens I could be away in Kea, made me thing seriously of having something there.
Kea is a island that offers you a cosmopolitan touch if one wants it, for example in Vourkary, but at the same time one has the opportunity to have peaceful and relaxing vocations.
The west side of Kea at the area of Kalogiros -Vroskopos is a 20min. drive from Korissia port. it is a place which has 10 houses built in a distance between them which gives a lot of privacy and at the same time it has breathtaking sunsets overlooking the Aegean sea.
All the above made decide to choose the specific area to built my house and I am very pleased with my decision!
I chose a plot of land to built my house having in mind that I only want to have the view of the sea in front of me. The architectural design is simple and gives one privacy although the house can be full of people.The best however that makes it special is the magnificent view that one may see from wherever he stands in the house,the sea the sailing boats, the sunset and in the evening the moonlight that falls in the sea.
It's the second time that we rent the Katerina's house.
We like this big house hung on the hill with an extraordinary view on the sea. Sunset are always an event !
The configuration, equipment and decoration make that we feel very good there. You can isolate yourself. The comfort is a top quality.
Katerina is at our disposal in any case to provide us the best service.
We like the swimming pool but also the 2 nearby beaches.
The only drawback is the access to the house because of some not tarred roads but you become used very fast. You need a 4x4.
Obviously, I recommend this marvelous house held by an owner who is very conscientious of the well-being of her guests.
This is the second year in a row that we rent this gorgeous house, and once again we had an excellent stay.
I cannot think of a better rating than a returning customer.
It has been a pure pleasure to spend our holidays in Kea in so beautiful house, not only refined and elegant but also very confortable, with everything we needed. It was so relaxing
to swim in the swimming pool, watching at the most beautiful landscape j ever seen. Thanks a lot, Katerina!!!
We spent at Katerina's house in Kea 10 wonderful days of holiday.
As soon as we arrived there, we understood that reality was even better than the images we saw on the website. The breathtaking landscape, clean and comfortable rooms, large spaces and full furnished kitchen made our stay simply perfect.
It was a honor and a real pleasure to meet Katerina, such an interesting, reliable and helpful person.
We hope we will make it to come soon again to enjoy Katerina's house And wonderful Kea!
THe house is fantastic, and the beautiful pool makes you not want to explore what is one of the most unique islands. EVerything was spotless, and the kitchen was well equipped. Just remember to buy everything you might need to eat or drink leaving the port. Thank you Katerina for what was a marvellous break!
It has been an absolute delight spending a week in this exceptional house. The house itself and the location are far superior to what the photos show.
A very big house with character. It has a perfect - 180 degrees - sea view and incredible sunsets every day.
While it allows for real isolation and ‘detoxification’ from our usual city life it is 15 minutes from the port and the main city with plenty of choices for food and bars.
Totally perfect, will certainly be going back.
A last word for Katerina who has been a great host, polite and responsive to all our needs.
Kea is a beautiful island located very close to Athens. It takes just one hour by ferry from the port of Lavrio which is only 40km.from Athens air-port. The port of Kea Korissia (Gulf St. Nicholas) is one of the largest natural protected harbours in the Mediterranean.
One can combine relaxing vacations with interesting sight seeing.
No need to mention the beautiful beaches with clear crystal water but it must be mentioned that one can also be impressed by the rich flora, rare plant species and countless crops. The royal oak forests, which are unique in the Cyclades, create an unforgettable landscape. Most of the island belongs to the network Natura 2000.
On the south-east coast of Kea are the remains of the ancient city Karthaia . The city was in ancient times one of the four centres of the island. Excavations in the area have uncovered ancient temples and other parts of buildings.
Set in Ioulida is the Archaeological Museum . One can see findings from excavations in prehistoric settlements, findings from historic times and parts of the ancient temple of ancient city Karthaia. The place is very pleasant and the presentation of exhibits simple.
It must be also pointed out that there are 12 hiking trails that are named 'Trails of Cultural Interest' which are of special beauty for one who likes walking!
Apart from the above there are restaurants, coffee bars and night clubs mostly in Korissia and at the beautiful Vourkari bay where most of the sailing boats and yachts moor.
