The island of Kea in Cyclades is the island closest to the mainland. There is a frequent ferry service from the port of Lavrio (crossing: one hour). Lavrio is a 30 minute drive from Athens Airport.
Kea has a forest of Royal Oak, many rare herbs and is a natural habitat for many species of animals and birds. Due to the variety of flora and fauna a large part of the island is included in the NATURA 2000 environmental protection network. It has beautiful beaches and an extensive hiking path network.
The main port, Korissia, is very lively with bars, cafes, supermarkets, bakeries, banks, pharmacy, and other conveniences. Vourkari is a picturesque yachting harbour, 3 minutes by car from the port of Korissia, with the best waterfront fish restaurants on the island, exclusive boutiques, cafes, bars etc.
But cosmopolitan life is not what makes Kea interesting and exclusive.
Kea is known for its archaeological treasures, including a museum in Chora (the largest village, crowning a beautiful hill). The most prominent excavation sites are Karthaia with Apollo Temple and ancient theatre, and the Bronze Age Ayia Irini settlement linked to Minoan Crete and Santorini.
In this neighborhood we are privileged to have built our home.
The villa sits on a mild slope with full view of the sea, adjacent to a protected archaeological site, in the “Tris ammoudies” [Three Sand-beaches] exclusive area, only 3 kms. [3 min. by car] from the port, and a 800 m. walk from picturesque Vourkari. There are only 12 other exclusive villas in the neibhorhood, with the surrounding natural lanscape and the sea views unspoiled for ever, including the beautiful semi-private beach, only a 250 m. walk.
The villa has three “independent” units-suites.
