Exactly like the website. Maria is a great host and was always available to assist with anything. We all decided we will have to come back :)
We are very happy you had a good time and enjoyed your stay. we would love to have you come back again.
We had a very good time at the villa in Kea! The location and the view is extraordinary and even better than you can see on the pictures. The house is well equipped and maintained and very clean. The change of towels and house cleaning once a week was much appreciated and more than we had expected. The outside area offers different places to stay during the day, there is enough shadow as well. The barbecue area is a perfect place to stay even if there is a lot of wind. The owner is very friendly and even offered us some stuff from his wine cellar - thank you again! Furthermore many thanks to Maria, who was always available and answered promptly to any request which was really helpful! We really enjoyed our stay and hope to see you again!
Thank you very much for your kind words. Both the owner and I are very glad you had a good vacation. We would love to have you come and stay again. Best wishes to all.
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 consequence, 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 15 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, a couple of arts and crafts shops and some boutiques.
Otzias Bay is only a 15 minute drive from the house (there is a local bus service) and the pretty island capital Ioullis is a 3 minutes drive (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 tranquility, authenticity and a genuinely Aegean environment.
