With a breathtaking view of the endless blue sea, Als Marmarei was built to reflect the aesthetic principles of Feng Shui philosophy in the natural stone colors. It also adopted the plain and elegant forms of Cycladic architecture in order to match the environment and to embrace the visitor, revealing the energy of the place as a point of direct contact with him. The cluster of cottages is situated on the east coast of the island, nestled on the top of a hill next to a wild canyon, overlooking the blue sea and eleven other islands: Andros, Tinos, Giaros, Siros, Mykonos, Serifos, Siphnos, Kithnos, even Paros and Naxos and Evia in the far left. Kea’s best beaches, Sykamia and Kalidonihi, with their crystalline waters and Cycladic stone lapped by the sea, are very easily accessible.

About Filio Triantafyllidou
My wife and I live in Athens with our two teenage daughters, one dog and two cats. I own an electrical and mechanical engineering firm and my wife is a writer who holds a doctorate in tourism management. About ten years ago we visited Kea and fell in love with it at first sight. The island has a unique charm and beauty yet is so close to Athens that its hard to believe that it hasn't as yet been overrun by tourists. Fabulous beaches are within short walking distance of our cottages and nature trails dot the island. There are also interesting ruins in the area that date to antiquity. All of these things plus perfect sunrises and an endless sea make the island and especially ALS MARMAREI a place that we love to visit and, hopefully, you will too...
Why Filio Triantafyllidou chose Kea
Kea, also known by the name Tzia, is a different and slightly mysterious island. It is cosmopolitan, serene and peaceful at the same time, as well as rich in attractions, thanks to its long history at the cross-roads of Mediterranean life and its well-preserved archaeological sites. Kea is also blessed with an uncommon natural beauty and fabulous beaches, not to mention its famous walking paths. The more one gets to know Kea, the more one falls in love with it. The island’s inland and seaside beauty gradually engulf the senses and one becomes bewitched by its charm. Perhaps its best feature is that it lies only one hour by ferry away from the port of Lavrion, just a short drive south of Athens’ Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport.
What makes this Villa unique
Using ALS MARMAREI as a base, guests can explore the wild beauty of the island as well as visit the main town, Ioulida, that is very special, and admire the grain mills and the ancient stone lion that, according to myth, chased the nymphs from the island. Visitors can also stroll on the famous ancient paved paths, visit the temples of Apollo and Athena in ancient Karthea, swim in virgin, blue waters facing the nearby island of Kythnos, enjoy the sun and sea on the island’s other wonderful beaches and, at night, dine and dance the night away in the cosmopolitan marina in Vourkari or the beach bars in Koundouros.
