A lovely, romantic stone-built old farmhouse, modernised but with many Greek features, in about 6 acres of hillside and garden with outstanding views overlooking the southern tip of Evia and the Cavadora straight. The house has five bedrooms, three of which lead off the large living room with two bedrooms (including the master bedroom and en suite bathroom) below the house. The kitchen is large, fitted with an electric cooker and an open fireplace. There are two terraces for outdoor eating, one alcoved between the kitchen and living room, the other above the master bedroom. It is a home, rather than a holiday house and fully winterised. Also on the property is an old olive press building and other stone-built houses. The garden is on many terraces and planted with almost all the fruits and nuts that grow in the climate, as well as shrubs, flowers and kitchen gardens. There are masses of roses. There is a large plunge pool which is cleaned daily. Our cleaners come in one a week, or more frequently by arrangement. Our gardener has a house on the property and will pick produce for you daily. We produce our own delicious olive oil. We have chickens and geese so fresh eggs are usually available. Apart from animal noises it is very quiet.
How to get there.: From Athens international airport there is a 25-30 minute bus or taxi ride to the port of Rafina. The ferry takes 2 hours to Gavrion , the Andros port. Ferries are daily, morning and evening. It is a 20-25 mins car ride to the house You will need to rent a car at Athens or on the island. It is probably easier to rent on the island. I can arrange this for you. The last 200 metres of road to the house (and on down to the beach) is not tarmac but is easily accessible with any small rental car.
The kitchen has a lovely old open fireplace for the colder seasons. The living room has a large wood burning stove.
Our cleaner comes once a week to clean the house and the laundry is also changed weekly (this is part of the rental price, additional cleaning can be arranged)
The outdoor pool is a large plunge pool with approximate dimensions of 5.5 metres long 3.5 metres wide
and 1.4 high. Our pool girl spends 2 hours each day keeping clean the pool and its surrounds.
During the summer our gardener is likely to be there almost every day and has a cottage on the land, so he can sort out any problems....moreless
