About: I have spent my childhood years in Paris, France. I moved in Athens, Greece as a teenager and later on, in 2005, I have decided to move to the island of Evia, take over the property of my grandparents and restore it in a way that it doesn't lose its authenticity and character. I will be more than happy to welcome you in our special family estate.
Why Evia: The Villa Averoff, a historic estate, was owned by the Averoff family since my ancestor Avgerinos Averoff, a nobleman from Northern Greece, bought the land in 1833, when the island of Evia was liberated from the Ottoman occupation. Today, the Villa Averoff, has opened its gates to guests for a unique accommodation experience, in one of the two beautiful mansions of the estate: the Red House and the White House.

Unique benefits of the area: Beautiful beaches and wonderful nature, rivers, canyons and unimaginable greenery, a natural environment that offers plenty of alternatives to visitors all year round.
