Kea was once called the Water Island, Ydroussa, and it is believed that the name is connected to the water nymphs, that lived here

according to mythology. Because it was such a pretty island, gods got jealous, and sent a lion to ravage the land. The nymphs fled, and as a subsequence, the island dried out. The Keans then asked Apollo's son Aristaeus for help, and he built a temple to Zeus, who apart from being the highest god, also was the one who sent rain. This pleased him, and the nymphs and waters returned, giving Kea a fertile soil with good crops.

The island has been inhabited since Neolithic times. In the 13th century, the island was ruled by the Venetians, and 300 years later by the Turks. Meanwhile, Kea was often raided by pirates, and the locals suffered greatly. It is therefore not surprising that Kea was one of the first Greek islands to enroll in the War of Independence in 1821.

Vourkari, Kea: The little harbor of Vourkari is a 10 minute drive from the house and a delightful place popular with the yachting crowd. Although there is no beach in Vourkari itself, the lovely sandy beach at Gialiskari is just round the corner. Vourkari has quite a busy nightlife and there are several good fish restaurants and a couple of trendy bars. There is also a mini-market and a couple of arts and crafts shops as well as boutiques.

Otzias Bay, Korissia,: Otzias Bay and Korissia are only 12 minute drive from the house and the pretty island

capital Ioullis is a 15 minutes drive up the mountain (there is a local bus service). The Otzias Bay has a long stretched sandy beach with a lagoon section that makes it ideal for swimming for families with small children. The organized beaches of Spathi and Koundouraki, are ideal

for those that like water sports. There is also an organized office in Vouraki for those that want to go scuba diving.

Unlike others, Kea remains a quaint, low profile, rugged island, with few tourists, and an abundance of pristine beaches, beautiful blue-green

waters, and ancient cobblestone marked foot-paths, bird-watching nature reserves, few hotels and mostly, privately owned houses.

Seasonally or permanently, to relax and enjoy, Kea boasts known names of the Greek and international jet-set in business, law, science, and art,

as it appeals to the discerning visitor who seeks tranquillity, authenticity and a genuinely Aegean environment.

formidable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné dans la propriété du 6/08/16 au 18/08/17, et cela reste un souvenir magnifique.

Tous été parfait, kea est une île où il fais bon vivre, très calme. Il n'y a sur l'île que trois routes en goudron sinon, ce sont des chemins de terre (prévoir un 4X4).

Les plages de Koundouros et Spathie, sont les plus jolies.

La villa a une vue a coupé le souffle.

En arrivant, cela fais un petit lotissement de maison (très calme en ce qui nous concerne), une magnifique entrée. De là ce trouve la terrasse divisé en plusieurs petits coins, et la piscine à l'eau de mer.

Dans la maison, au rez de chaussée, une cuisine (très bien équipée, il manque a mon avis un micro onde), une salle à mangé, un salon.

A l'étage une chambre double avec un bureau et une salle de bain, wc.

En bas de la maison (accés intérieur) 2 chambre double avec 2 salle de bain, wc

A ce niveau aussi un petit appartement avec entrée séparée, avec un grand lit, des banquettes, salle de bain, wc.

J'ai échanger plusieurs mails avec Maria, qui m'a répondu très rapidement, elle a fais son possible pour l'organisation de notre séjour (réservation du ferry, conseil sur les restaurants, les plages par exemple........). Pendant notre séjour, nous avons vu Stravos, qui est l'homme d'entretien, une personne qui ne parle pas anglais mais avec qui les échanges ont été fort sympathiques.

Merci a eux pour leur gentillesse.

J'espère revenir un jour.

Wonderful place

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the villa. We could enjoy of breathtaking views from many rooms of the villa and of course from the large terraces. The access to the sea was unfortunately unavailable as the stone stairs were broken. Water of the swimming pool very very cold, probably because we were there in May.

I would like to thank Maria for the support provided, always perfect!

I hope to come back to the villa one day.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words, it was a pleasure having you. The pool water was I am sure cold as you stayed in May and the weather was not good. Next time you come, we will have the steps in front fixed so you can go down to the sea. Hope to see you soon.
