Vu magic, espace superbe, de belles prestations, des gardiens très discret et très aimable
Sublime a refaire avec grand plaisir - la piscine est géante là vu mer est parfaite. Au calme . La maison est très propre confortable, les extérieur également et très pratique pour vivre en communauté Seul les routes d’accès sont un peut compliquées
Petit point à améliorer les verres, ils en manquent et surtout pas de verres à pieds et ustensile petit déjeuner il serait bien pour cette maison de prévoir un extracteur de jus pour le matin .
We are very happy that you had a good time at the villa and hope that you come back again sometime.
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 7 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 with its recommended beach taverna. 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 is only a 2 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.
