In its spacious 250sqm living areas, this home offers remote privacy, overwhelmingly spectacular sea views and unforgettable romantic sunsets. Spreading hillside on three separate levels, the property is surrounded by discreet, indigenous vegetation and garden areas.

About Vassilis H.

We are two brothers, Alexander and Vassilis, and we've had the opportunity to spend most of our summers on this lovely island! Raised abroad and very well travelled, we will be very happy to have the opportunity to host you in our summer home. Currently based in Athens, we make sure to spend as much time as possible on the island, every chance we get! Very easily accessible, we are happy to offer our insider's knowledge of Andros in order to make your stay as memorable as possible.

Why Vassilis H. chose Idrousa

Accessibility is excellent! Located in Kypri, on the mid-western coast of Andros, the property offers an idyllic position not only because of its breathtaking views but also because it is within 5km from the port of Gavrio and within less than 3km from the picturesque and active seaside village of Batsi.

What makes this villa unique

The property offers a truly wonderful living experience! Besides featuring several cozy corners that allow each and very one of its guests to escape as they please, the highlight is how withdrawn, yet close, everything really is... On the way to the villa from the port, there are several beaches, three of which are organised sandy ones; St. Peter, Golden Beach as well as Kypri beach, which offer umbrellas with sun loungers, organised beach bar, along with various water sports activities; dining and shopping options are also within less than 10 mins from the villa which makes the stay even more carefree and easy! Furthermore, the island is also renowned for its various trekking paths; make sure to familiarise yourself with the its rich history and culture as the island hosts a number of museums. There are also plenty of picturesque villages tucked away in the countryside, which you should make sure to visit while also enjoying the local delicacies.

Andros is one of the closest Greek islands to Athens (only two hours away by ferry) and next to Tinos. Alternative access to the island is to fly to the international airport of Mykonos island and from there take the ferry to Andros (1,5 to 2 hours). Andros is the northernmost and one of the most attractive islands of the Cyclades and second in area after Naxos, with traditional and very picturesque villages.

The fortified capital of the island, Chora (30 klm away), is a real jewel, which combines Venetian and Cycladic architecture; narrow stone paved alleys, arcades and bright colored flowers.

Its main port is at Gavrio, with a regular connection to Rafina, while the ports of Batsi, Chora, and Korthi can facilitate fishing, touristic and private vessels.

At the western part of Andros there is a plethora of big sandy beaches, easily accessible and developed. Those seeking quiet beaches and rough landscapes should visit the northeastern and southeastern parts. There are many rivers and torrents and plenty of springs. Ravines have rich vegetation with plane and walnut trees, while the slopes (especially at the south) are full of oak trees.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. Very well maintained and clean. Enough space for 5 adults and 2 kids. The place is even nicer than seen on the illustrations. The island is beatiful

Honeymoon Bliss

  • 4 of 5

The instant I arrived at the villa I was in heaven, the photos absolutely do not capture it fully. The villa itself is in excellent condition, very well maintained, spacious, and private. The views, especially during sunset, are spectacular. It is very close to beaches, restaurants etc. but you also feel like you "own the island" while you're there because it isn't crowded. The owner sent his brother to help us check-in/out and he was very helpful and polite - we took the ferry back with him to Athens on our last day and him and my husband bonded while I tried not to get sea sick (luckily it isn't a long boat ride from the main land). Overall, the villa was EXACTLY what we wanted for our honeymoon and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to feel like royalty or celebrity for a week or more!

Important: someone in your party must be able to drive standard. Luckily my husband did or we would have had issues because I don't believe the rental service had manual and you should definitely rent a car for your stay.

Beautiful and special villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is, for us, the best combination of location, cleanliness, accessibility from the port and beaches. Everything is first class and well provisioned: large fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning in the rooms, large and confortable living room. . Efficient and friendly Vassilis, looking after all aspects of our stay. We particularly enjoyed fresh vegetables from biological private garden of the villa, we founded on the table on the morning.

We would strongly recommend this location to anyone. Benedetta&Domenico

What a magnificent house!

  • 5 of 5

It was one of our most beautiful holidays locations ever. The house was equipped with all the most updated technologies and appliances that made our 9-people group holiday easier. The house had also been recently refurbished and it appeared to be brand new. The owner's assistance was very accurate and warm. We definitely recommend this property to big families and groups of friends: the house is so large and cosy that everyone will find his own place. If you have children the swimming pool is perfect. There are a pair of equipped sandy beaches nearby and a lot of other beaches to be reached by car. If you want to enjoy the Greek islands, this is the place.

Vacances fabuleuses !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines parfaites dans cette villa en juillet et aout 2016. La maison est enchanteresse, encore mieux que sur les photos, et la vue vraiment exceptionnelle (et le soleil se couche juste en face).

L'endroit est spacieux avec de nombreux coins pour s'isoler si besoin.

Plusieurs plages charmantes et pas trop surpeuplées sont à moins de 5 min de voiture, deux villages à moins de 10min.

Vassilis et son frère Alexandros ont été des hôtes charmants, très disponibles et attentionnés à nos moindres besoins.

Nous avons adorés, nous reviendrons .....
