About the property

Situated 2km away from Christos, the largest village in the north of Ikaria Island, surrounded by wild vegetation, olive and pine trees, this traditional property is located in a quiet scenery in absolute harmony with the surroundings. This two-storey house of 100 m2 features a private covered terrace with views of the landscape, the surrounding hills and the sea.

First built in 1940, this refurbished, renovated house is a typical example of the Ikarian traditional architecture, featuring massive stone walls of 60 cm width with a gabled wooden roof covered by schist. The courtyard contains a traditional oven and a grape mill.

The house consists of 2 levels. The ground floor features an open plan kitchen with a sitting - dining area around a fireplace. The kitchen is well equipped with all the necessary facilities, including a washing machine and a filter coffee maker. The first bedroom is situated at a small distance, along with a bathroom that gives a more private character to it. This room has a view to the garden. The upper floor contains the master bedroom and a bedroom with two bunk beds ideal for kids or friends. Both bedrooms have the privilege of an en-suite bathroom and have access to a veranda with an amazing view, ideal for privacy and book reading.

The spacious unified living and dining room opens up to a large covered terrace ideal for breakfast and home cooked meals with awesome views of the Greek landscape.

The kitchen - sitting area is air conditioned and most of the bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans, making it very pleasant during the hot summer days.

This house is suitable for a large family, a group of friends and for couples.

About Danai

I grew up in Athens and studied architecture for several years in France. I'm married to Nikos and we have two beautiful children.Having traveled to different places, I have acquired a sense of appreciation for what each unique spot has to offer. I enjoy meeting new people and hosting guests from around the world. It is great to hear about different interests and ideas, and I love to be helpful to my guests so they can enjoy their time off!

My mother Moschoula, your hostess, is originally from ikaria. She has spent most of her life summer holidays there. As an architect, she remodeled the Oliveland House with passion and care paying attention in preserving all the architectural traditional elements. She is a very sociable and giving person. It will be a pleasure for her to host and help you see Ikaria island through her eyes!
