Overview

About the property

Kea, also known as Tzia, is one of the closest islands to Athens. Kea is a hidden gem in the Cycladic Islands and has its own unique style. As there are very few hotels on the island, private houses are rented out, most or all of them made of local stone. The island has 45 beaches, most of them accessible by boat. Kea is the ideal island for those that want to relax and have a great vacation.

The house is on the waterfront with easy access to the beach of Otzia. The front

part of the house was built 200 years ago and though renovated, maintains its original charm. Guests just have to open the front gate, take a few steps and dive

into the blue waters of Otzia. Just 100 meters away is a nice Greek restaurant and another 100 meters a second. An ideal house for those that just want to lay back and relax.

The house has a large kitchen area with a sofa, fireplace and a dining table for four. There is also a large bedroom with a double bed and a modern bathroom. The second bedroom is part of the original house with its curved stone ceiling and half a meter thick walls, 2 single beds and the original fireplace, where family meals were cooked 200 years ago.

Outside there is a large terrace with covered seating and dining areas, where one can sit and enjoy the sea view.

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 subsequence, 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 5 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 and a couple of arts and crafts shops as well as boutiques.

Otzias Bay is only 3 walking steps from the houseand the pretty islandcapital Ioullis is a 15 minutes drive up the mountain (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 tranquillity, authenticity and a genuinely Aegean environment.
