Kea is the closest Cycladic Island to Athens. The ferry connection to Kea departs from the port of Lavrio. Lavrio is approximately a 20-25 minute drive from the Athens International airport (Eleftherios Venizelos) and a 45 minute drive from downtown Athens. The ferry trip to Kea’s port, Korissia, lasts approximately one hour. The area of Agios Nikolaos, where the house is lying, is a 10 minutes drive from Korissia.

Despite its proximity to Greece’s biggest urban center, Kea has retained its traditional qualities and is only in recent years that modern development has reached its shores. Over the past 10 years Kea has managed to embrace the right kind of tourism: an eco-friendly destination with a multitude of walking paths and trails and numerous beaches that rival in beauty any of the more established destinations of the Cyclades.

Idyllic hillside retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Pool House was a perfect choice for our annual Greek island retreat. The house is light and beautifully designed to take advantage of the fabulous views. The kitchen has all you need for self-catering. Alfredos was very attentive and helpful throughout and the pool is very well maintained. The peace and quiet of the hillside meant that we spent many days by the pool and in the hammock. Why would you want to go anywhere else (did I mention the heavenly views?). It's so tranquil; often the only the movement was the birds of prey silently circling the hillside. The island is absolutely charming and unspoilt (almost untouched by tourism compared to other Greek islands), quite barren in places, but with many wild herbs and flowers growing in profusion. Locals were very welcoming, and we enjoyed great meals in local restaurants. The surrounding houses alongside the Pool House are quite close together, but we were fortunate not to have any problematic noise disturbance from neighbouring properties. We managed to navigate the local country lanes (with quite typical Greek island road surfaces) on a 125cc motorbike but some beaches are easier accessed in a four wheel drive. We loved Kea, an exceptionally beautiful island, and The Pool House was for us (a middle aged couple who know what we want from a Greek island holiday) a totally idyllic retreat.

Peaceful & calm with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

So many positives about this place, but first among them is the positioning, with spectacular views out to the west (fabulous sunsets and a glimpse of the Temple of Poseidon at Sounio). So peaceful and secluded set among a few other properties but with none overlooking. The internal space of the house is well designed and comfortable, although I could imagine it would feel a little crowded if all six beds were occupied by adults. Outside, the terrace is large with ample shade (and did I mention the view?) and a large dining table for leisurely lunches and starlit dinners. The pool is of a really good size and depth, and again has that view.

The only real negative was in fact due to that pool. The house is set in the countryside and, since there is no natural surface water on the island during the summer, the pool is an oasis for local wildlife, and when we were there, that mainly meant wasps (the non-aggressive European Paper Wasp, but in the numbers we had – particularly on the hottest days – their thirst and curiosity meant they were a real nuisance.) The owner was really very helpful in helping us try to combat them, but quite simply, nothing was going to stop them getting to that water. Apparently we had hit peak wasp season (late June) so, if you’re scared of wasps, it’s worth asking the owner before you book about how active the little beasties are likely to be at the time you’re planning your trip.

Other than that, we can’t fault the place and had a fabulous fortnight of peace and relaxation. If you want to get out and see more of beautiful Kea, the house is in a good location for exploring the island, and while you’ll need to drive over dirt tracks whichever way you reach it, we managed without incident in an Astra. Some of the roads on Kea would be more comfortable in a 4x4, but most are fine in a standard saloon.

spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and well equipped house with spectacular view. The house was clean and perfect for a family holiday. It is in a quiet location, about 10 minutes drive from both the port town and chora. Getting to the property involves some short sections of dirt track. We were impressed with the service provided by the property manager. Will definitely return.

Welcome to paradise

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Alfredo's House was such a pleasure. The view right at the sea by the pool is amazing, same as the house wich is really comfortable and clean (plus really well furnished). The owner is really helpfull and easy to talk.Of course, the location is a little bit far from cities if you don't have a car, but it's totally fine to rent taxis plus it's part of the charm of it. We definitly would recommended for those who're looking for luxe, peace and, again, one of the best view of the island.

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!

  • 5 of 5

We had this house right after the other one. Of course the swimming pool was a plus but i don't think I wanna write anything less pleasant then the other house.

The place is beautiful, the swimming pool is super well taking care of, the house is in great state and style. Everything is perfectly made for you to spend a magical time. Especially at sunset. That picture is not lying, the view is breathtaking and at summer time the sun set right in front of you, exposition is perfect, you have it every night!

Again the owner was so kind to us, a real bowl of fresh air. Makes you feel instantly very welcome.

I can't wait to go back!

One thing, you need a vehicle to go to and from the house. But it's part of the fun and also the best way to discover this beautiful island.
