Things to Know

All bedrooms have Cocomat beds and linen. Note that there are stairs going up and down from the main living space; some safety gates are available but young children may need extra supervision. The balconies have a small wall around them and the whole garden is enclosed. The pool is not gated. Nearby activities include diving in Vourkari, hiking trails, ancient Karthea, Kastriani monastery and the prehistoric ruins of Agia Irini.

About the Location

The villa is in Vourkari, a small town on the northwest coast of Kea. It is the island’s natural marina for yachts and is home to a handful of beautiful restaurants, cafés and shops. The villa is a 150m walk from the town, with 2 beaches nearby accessible on foot and many more reached by car. Vourkari is 10 minutes from Kea’s port; Kea is under an hour by boat from Lavrio, which is very accessible from Athens Airport in 45 minutes. The 'hora', or village on the hillside, Loulida, is only a few kilometers away and well worth a visit.

Kea, Greek Islands

Tranquility, Athenian-Style

Kea is a small, quiet island in the Cyclades archipelago. Apart from the main foreign tourist circuit, yet popular among savvy Athenian families who know how to escape the crowds, this local sanctuary with its sleepy seaside fishing villages, secluded coves, and ancient ruins just might be the best kept secret in the Greek islands.
