Amazing vacation at Casa Bianca
We are fond of Greece and the Cyclades Islands. I must acknowledge that Kea Island is positively one of the most quiet, well-protected and less crowdy island we visited. The friendly spirit with the inhabitants is highly enjoyable.
The villa ‘Casa Bianca’ was just amazing, so nicely decorated with all the comfort and high standard you could only expect from a top 5-Star hotel. The refined decoration of the house fully respects the great Greek style.
You cannot imagine how beautiful is the see view from the house and the swimming pool.
Crissa, the owner, has welcome us as we were part of family. We were immediately feeling at home
We are just keen to come back for our next vacation in Greece.
Alexandre and his nice family are wonderful people and I was so glad that these people did have an enjoyable time - I really felt that I had a part of my family visiting my home ...They were very polite and respectful of the environment generally and I do hope that these kind of people who appreciate the purity of a place and preserve it visit Kea..(and CASA BIANCA).
Thank you so much for keeping the house in perfect condition and hope to see you again soon
Wonderful vacation home on great Island with a very special owner
Great clean and comfortable house, looks just like pictures, very romantic location, great sunsets and our kids loved the pool! House nicely stocked with towels and kitchen supplies in the event you wanted to cook there, we only did few dinners there because food is delicious and affordable at many of the island restaurants. We had a wonderful 10 days there, just perfect to immerse yourself into a wonderful Greek island and relax. Went to many beautiful beaches and had many wonderful dinners out. House is located down a remote 3 kilometers unlaced road which did not bother us. Crissa, the owner could not have been more hospitable, she met us at the airport, brought dessert and American coffee for us, helped arrange transportation, and car rental. When something went wrong, had someone available, Basillis, who was great, we called because the coffee machine was not working, Basille brought over a new one the next morning, locked ourselves out, Basillis was over in 1/2 hour with an extra key. Crissa had the pool cleaned at least three times while we were there, truly remarkable commitment to helping us enjoy our vacation, could not recommend her as a host, her place or the island more highly! Left with a great impression of Crissa, felt I could trust her implicitly, she exceeded our expectations and I am confident will exceed yours! Thank you Crissa!
I am so pleased that Gabriella and her wonderful family had a wonderful time and enjoy the house.
Thank you for their words and looking forward to see them again all of them.
My house will be open to them.
Casa Bianca.....a perfect choice
This villa is absolutely marvelous and has a fantastic open view on the sea , it is difficult to find a better position.
In 2 minutes you can walk down to a small beach used only by a very limited numbers of villas around ( most of the time you are the only guest). Crissa, the owner , is extremely kind and will help you enjoying a perfect vacation in Kea.
I am so pleased that these very nice group oh people were pleased and had a wonderful vacation. It makes me very happy to see that my newly bought villa gives pleasure to others and enjoy their stay.
Wish to have nice group of people like Alessandro 's group.
Kea, also known as Tzia is one of the closest islands to mainland Athens. There are three to 4 ferry boats a day going to and from the island. Tzia, is not a tourist island, though recently it has become known.
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday Kea is the Island for you.
Kea was an independent Islands with 4 kings (B.C.). Until about 300 years ago there were 95,000 inhabitants, now there are 1,800. As there are very few hotels, mostly private residents are rented out in the summer months.
Beaches- Koundouraki (to the south), Otzia (to the north), Gialiskari (to the west), Xyla (to the west) and Spathi (to the East), Pisses (to the south west), are all organized sandy beaches. At Koundouraki and Spathi they also have water sports. Of course there are many more beaches that you can go to by car (all sandy) Kalidonixi, Orco, Sikamia and the list goes on.If you want to explore some of the secluded beaches, then a boat is needed.
Walking trails - Kea also has about 13 to 15 well known ancient walking trails. Some for beginners and others for experiences trekkers.
Boats for hire - If you have a boat license you can rent a small speed boat and go to some of the inaccessible beaches (weather permitting). If you do not have a license there is a diving shop that has experienced captains that can take you round the island.
Scuba Diving - There is a professional scuba diving club, working out of Vourkari and Koudouros.
Kea has some of the best known ship wrecks just off its shores. The Britannic, the sister ship of the Titanic is just off the coast of Kea (about 120 meters down). She is the biggest ship in the world that is down at the bottom of the sea in one piece. There are also some French, Spanish, British and Greek shipwrecks that divers can visit. Kea also
has some nice reefs. So if you like diving, a great experience. In 2016 it was the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the Britannic, National Geographic, BBC and filming crews from all over the world came to Kea.
Ruins - A lot of Kea has ruins, as the island had 4 kings, each kingdom with its own currency. The kingdoms were in Korissia, Pisses, Ioulida
and Karthea. Karthea, on the south east side of the island was made a UNESCO world heritage site this summer (2017). Karthea was discovered about 120 years ago. Most of the site is still intact, so it is well worth a visit. Karthea is considered the second Acropolis of Greece.
Local Products - Tzia is known for some great local products. The honey they produce, is I believe the best you can find anywhere. The local meat, olive oil, jams an some local wines are also very good.
Roads - Not all the roads on Kea are asphalt, this I believe adds to its charm and the idea of being on a island.
Chora- Ioulida, is nestled in the hills, 12 minutes from the Port. Chora has narrow cobbled street, no cars are allowed inside the town. It has restaurants, cafes, some boutiques, bakers, mini-market, chemist, medical center,supermarket (3 minutes away), 2 wine bars and a museum. The ancient castle (ruins) and the famous stone Lion (9 B.C.), just outside the town, are well worth a visit.
Korissia - the Port. The port has 2 bakeries, a supermarket, chemist, ice cream shop, pizzeria , bars, a fishmongers, a butchers, cafes, restaurants. At night they close the road and the tables from the restaurants, cafes and bars are placed right up to the end of the pier, offering a fantastic sea view. You can even buy fresh fish straight from the local fishing trawlers and fresh vegetables off the back of a farmers truck.
Vourkari - The picturesque Marina. Vourkari is 2 minutes by car from the Port. Vourkari has some well known fish taverans, some bars, cafes, an ice cream shop and boutiques. You can find some fresh fish here or enjoy a meal of lobster spaghetti, a well known delicacy of one of the restaurants. Vourkari, like Korissia have quite a busy night life.
Otzia - the blue lagoon. Otzia is to the north of the island, about 7 minutes from the port. Otzia has two restaurants and is ideal for families with small children.
Koudouros - Koundouros is to the south of the island, it has 5 sandy beaches, the best known is Koundouraki, which has water sports and diving. Koudouros has 4 restaurants and 2 bars. Though Koundouros does not have any shops, 10 minutes by car is Pisses, which has two restaurants and a well equipped mini-market.
Sunsets - The west and south west side of the island offer some spectacular sunsets, so get the camera ready.
Getting around the island -The island has 6 taxis, the drivers are all friendly and helpful. There are three rent-a-car shops on the island, but I suggest booking a car well in advance or you can bring one over on the ferry boat.
Kea a holiday to remember!!
