Overview

About the property

Traditional, cosy Cycladic villa with fantastic views to the Aegean sea.

This unique and traditional Cycladic villa, has a fantastic view to the Aegean sea and the port of Andros. The house is only 10 minutes walk from the port and the centre of the small village of Gavrio, yet offers privacy and tranquility as it is situated in a private 4.3 acres of green land.

Our beautiful villa boasts a master bedroom with amazing sea views and two bedrooms (one double/twin and one twin bedroom), ideal for families with children or friends. There are also two bathrooms, and an open plan and fully equipped kitchen/living room with a dining table. Our stone built veranda is ideal for a quiet time in, with astonishing views of the sea. The property also benefits from free Wi-Fi access. You can also taste delicious organic and seasonal fruit and vegetables, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, grapes, watermelons and apricots, all grown on site. Furthermore, Villa Valentino benefits from a private garage for two cars.

We offer free transfers from and to the port on your arrival and departure - just tell us when your ferry arrives and we will be waiting for you at the port.

On your first morning at Villa Valentino, Maria will prepare a delicious breakfast for you, free of charge, using local products, homemade bread and jam and fruit and vegetables grown in our garden.

Villa Valentino consists of two independent flats, the smallest of which is exclusively occupied by the hosts. They will be always available to help you make your stay more enjoyable. George and Maria are very keen to help, so you just need to ask for anything you need (don't worry, they both speak English) !

About Andros:

Andros has an excellent connection to the port of Rafina in Attica, with at least 4 ferries to and from the island, daily. The port of Rafina can be directly reached from Athens International Airport (Eleftherios Venizelos) by either bus or taxi, 24/7. Daily ferries also connect Andros to the islands of Tinos and Mykonos. Both islands are perfectly suited for one or two-day trips. Villa Valentino is only 0.6 miles from the centre of Gavrio where you can find all local amenities; restaurants, cafes, bars, local shops, ATMs, pharmacies , travel agents etc.

Andros is no typical Greek island, as it combines breathtaking beaches with crystal clear waters and fertile plains, lush vegetation and abundantly flowing streams. There is also a highly acclaimed and extensive network of walking and hiking routes - please ask us for more information.

The island of Andros is the second largest in Cyclades so accessing the beautiful beaches and landmarks requires a car. Car rental services are available at the port of Gavrio. The road network is extensive and in good condition and allows you to access the vast majority of beaches on the island. There is also a private hire taxi company operating on the island.

Things to Note

George is a keen fisherman and owns his own fishing boat. If you enjoy fishing or would like to try, George can take you on a fishing trip around Andros. All equipment will be provided by us. Just let us know if this would be something you're interested in doing! George and Maria have also secured exclusive offers in restaurants and a variety of watersport activities near Gavrio.

Wanting to make your stay as pleasant as possible, we only ask you to respect others in the same way you would like to be respected. Enjoy yourselves and keep safe!

Smoking is not permitted inside the house.

The perfect house with the warmest hosts

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely lovely - the rooms are airy, clean and nicely refined and there are two big terraces with a wonderful view on the harbour. The location is very convenient as you can walk to the village in 10-15mn max (2mn by car).

I was there with some friends and we enjoyed having long breakfasts on the terrace every morning. Maria prepared our first breakfast, giving us the opportunity to taste the local cheese, omelette, cookies and her homemade jam. George always brought us tomatoes and pears from the garden, which were absolutely delicious. They gave us great advice on the best beaches and restaurants and were the warming and most welcoming hosts ever.

I would absolutely recommend staying at Villa Valentino to anyone going to Andros!

Come un hotel a cinque stelle

  • 5 of 5

Il nostro soggiorno nella Villa Valentino si è rivelato piacevole e di nostro gradimento.

La casa rispettava appieno quanto pubblicato nel sito, molto funzionale , spaziosa e sopratutto molto pulita.

Maria e Georgios sono molto gentili e disponibili in caso di bisogno.

Al nostro arrivo ci hanno preparato una ricca colazione con prodotti locali.

Ringraziamo per la piacevole vacanza.

A great experience on a natural Paradise

  • 5 of 5

La nostra esperienza di vacanza ad Andros è stata meravigliosa sotto tutti i punti di vista.L'annuncio,che pubblicizzava la proprietà,ci aveva convinto subito per via del paesaggio che,dalle fotografie,era chiaro si sarebbe goduto sia dalla bella veranda,sia da una delle camere da letto,sia da ogni angolo della casa,come in effetti è stato.Appena giunti ad Andros ci è stato chiaro che l'annuncio aveva descritto con accuratezza,ma,soprattutto,con estrema onestà ogni cosa.Tutto corrispondeva al vero,ed ha superato di molto ogni nostra aspettativa.La disponibilità dei proprietari si è rivelata non solo professionale,ma soprattutto gentile,discreta, affettuosa, attenta.Si fa presto a diventare amici di persone di questo livello di umanità ed intelligenza.La proprietà era in ottimo stato e davvero molto,molto pulita.Ma ciò che ci ha colpito di più è stata la sostanziale efficacia di ogni singolo angolo della casa,che rivelava l'amore e la cura dei proprietari,che sono stati sempre assai premurosi,gentili e disponibili per tutto il periodo del soggiorno.La casa si trova vicinissimo al rifornimento di beni di ogni genere e a tante splendide spiagge, raggiungibili sia a piedi che in macchina. Suggerisco questa esperienza alle persone che sanno apprezzare la bellezza autentica della Grecia e la gentilezza di cuore dei greci, come quella dei prorpietari.

Our holiday experience in Andros was wonderful in all respects.The announcement advertising the property had convinced us right away because of the landscape,which,from the photos, it was clear we would enjoy both from the beautiful veranda or from one of the bedrooms,and from every corner of the house,as indeed it was.Just arrived to Andros it was clear that the announcement had described accurately,but,above all,with great honesty,everything.Everything corresponded to the truth,and far exceeded our expectations.The willingness of owners turned out to not only professional,but above all polite,discreet,affectionate,full of care and kindness.It's easy to become friends with people of this level of humanity and intelligence.The property was in excellent condition, extremely clean and scented of Greece!It is close to nice beaches and to one of the main villages of the island.

I would suggest this kind of holiday to people who love the graceful beauty of Greece and the generosity and the kindness of Greek people, like the owners of the property.

Cosy and relaxing holiday with perfect hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Definitely recommended!! Absolutely spotless house with very helpful and kind hosts. Our fridge was full of local fruit and veg and on our first day Maria brought us freshly baked bread and homemade jam, eggs, ham, fruit and more for breakfast. The house itself was very cosy and the veranda had a beautiful view to the port. Good wi-fi throughout the house as well. The house is close to the beach (only 5 minutes by car) and the location is quite quiet. The hosts were very nice and could suggest local restaurants to eat. We had a fantastic time and we wish we could stay longer. A big thank you to Mrs Maria and Mr George who made our stay so enjoyable!
