Further details for Koufonisi Island: Are you looking for a hidden paradise? Come to Koufonisia!

The peace and quiet; the Aegean sun; the unrivalled beaches, from the most beautiful in Greece, with golden sandy stretches and turquoise waters; the small bays; sea caves; the abundance of fresh fish; all make this island the gem of the Aegean giving promises of unforgettable holidays away from the hustle and bustle of busy tourist traffic.

Few cars! Thanks to the small distances, most of the visitors prefer to stroll or use a bike in order to discover the island’s unique natural beauties and the scenic alleys of Cycladic architecture.

In the village you can find shops, markets (open from 8:00 a.m. to 23:30 p.m. every day) and many taverns. Also in the east side of the island in some beaches there are taverns and beach bars.

Captains Prasinos Kostas and Roussetos organize daily excursions to the island’s beaches and nearby islands (Kato Koufonisi, Glaronisi, Keros and Schoinousa).

Further details for Villa St' Astra: St'Astra complex comprises two villas (Dias & Aris) with a garden of 5000 M2.

The villas are surrounded by a garden fully integrated in the Cycladic landscape and natural terrain of the island. A small melon field and herb patch guarantees few fresh biological vegetables for the visitor.The garden also offers many spots for relaxation and enjoying the view for those that would wish to explore it or be on private away from the swimming pool and the sitting areas.

A small water cascade separates the children’s pool of 20 M2 from the big one which has a hydro massage.

Around the pool, there are two built sitting areas with tables and comfortable sun beds. The small pool bar is equipped with a fridge and music system.

Both villas are surrounded by big verandas, each of them has comfortable bamboo seats and a dining table and chairs for moments of relaxation and enjoying your meals. In the back, there is the barbecue and the traditional oven along with another dining set.

Further details for Villa St' Astra: On the ground floor of each villa there are 1 living room with fireplace, 3 seater settee-bed, home cinema, sat TV; dining room; air condition; fully equipped open plan kitchen.

On the basement of each villa there are gym area (electric gym runner, magnetic bicycle, multi-use equipment for 30 types of exercises using weights, abdominal bench, gym mat, Pilates ball, step and ping pong (table with racquets) and SPA area(sauna, hamam, jacuzzi).

Ideal for groups of friends and families, this new establishment (built in 2010) can also prove to be ideal for larger groups who wish to spend their holidays together while retaining privacy between the two villas.

This private property with a really unrivalled panoramic view, will offer never-ending moments of relaxation and at those nights that you will choose to sit next to the pool, away from the island’s night-life, it will take you to a journey to The Stars (St’Astra) in the light of the candles and the sound of your favourite music.

Greek Island Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit for one family member and it fully lived up to all expectations from the time we were met off the ferry by our charming hostess Evy until we were farewelled by Evy and Vassili. A superb house, pool and grounds with a car at our disposal. The charm of Koufonisi is its relatively small size and smaller tourist numbers giving a sense of ownership of space. Nice restaurants, good swimming and in fact one could happily stay around the pool all day. Would love to come again. Cunningham family, Auckland.

Large Family Holiday at Villa St Astra

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a terrific two week vacation at Villa St Astra. We were a large group, 15 people in all, and the property worked exceptionally well.

Koufonisi is a gem of the Aegean. Small, difficult to get to, but with a unique charm and old world feel. Perfect for families although dining and nightlife options were wider than we anticipated. Almost everywhere we went represented good value and the locals were welcoming and helpful.

The houses themselves are in excellent repair and the hosts, Vasili and Evy, are more than willing to go the extra mile to ensure your stay is stress free and comfortable. Having spent several summers in the Ionian, we are now converts to the Aegean and really can't recommend this island, and this property in particular, more highly.

True paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Koufonissi was the trip of a lifetime, made possible not only by the villas Belus and Agenor but by their owners. Vassili and his wife Evy truly saw to every detail, not just in the homes but on our entire trip. We were picked up and taken to the port for travel, they arranged our boat tour with the famous captain Prassinos, they provided us TWO cars for use during our stay (what other rental property does that?), they made sure we knew where to go for a birthday cake for our son, and they provided recommendations on where to eat and where to purchase fresh fish. The caretakers of the home, a lovely couple, could not have been more wonderful and made sure that we truly didn't lift a finger during our time there. We hired a professional chef and Tasos made our stay just perfect! His food was truly amazing, and his ability to cater to 13 guests was unmatched. We would HIGHLY recommend anyone renting the property to use Tasos.

The property itself is stunning, with views overlooking the Aegean and Koufonnisia's surrounding islands. The pictures don't even begin to capture the beauty. The bedrooms were perfect, the outdoor living and dining space is unmatched in any vacation home I have been in, and there are wonderful exercise, sauna, steam, and whirlpool facilities. The pool provided wonderful entertainment for both adults and children, and the beaches on the island made for truly perfect days on vacation.

I cannot recommend this property more highly. We were three families and on our return to the United States swiftly recommended to all of our friends that they stay here. We hope to only be so lucky as to return here one day in the future.

Unforgettable Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I'd never been to Greece before but was feeling really happy when we managed to secure this property. However, when we stepped off the ferry before even arriving at the villas we realised this was going to be far beyond what we had expected. The island is breathtaking - the small town and crystal clear beach were just the start. Greeted by the lovely, generous owner and driven to the villas our large group (7 adults and 7 children) were shown around the stunning, fully equipped homes and welcomed with devine local food and welcome drinks. We spent the next 8 days exploring the island using the cars available. Then returning home to our gorgeous villas which overlooked the island. Kids spent forever in the pool, spas and playing table tennis. Adults spent forever enjoying themselves, dining in various spots around each villa. Listening to music that surround the pool area. I cant speak highly enough of the property and the hospitality we were shown by the owners. We plan to go back again and would recommend this spot to anyone wanting a family and friends trip.

A stunning villa, on the most beautiful Island

  • 5 of 5

It's difficult to believe islands like this exist outside of postcards. Classic architecture with no modern development, secluded beaches and wonderful tavernas over looking them. These villas perched above the town and beaches are breathtaking and lack nothing. The view and the outdoor areas are more than enough to make you think you are in paradise, but saunas, hammans, gym, table tennis etc etc are the icing on the cake. The two cars are also a very welcome touch for young families (we were 14, 7 adults, 6 kids and a two month old baby). Perfection, it's not cheap but it is absolutely worth every penny. Thank you Vasilis.

An amazing place, a wonderful wedding...

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to describe these wonderful houses. They are located a few meters away from Chora, the main village of Koufinisi, on the top of a small hill. The view at Chora, the endless blue of Aegean sea and the surrounding islands (from any room or veranda) was just breathtaking.

When we arrived at the island Vasilis welcomed us at the port and transported us to the villas. There we also met Evi and together they showed us around the houses and explained how to use the facilities. They treated us with local delicacies and they left an amazing food-basket for the upcoming days! How sweet and welcoming!

The place they have created is so elegant and luxurious. Everything is taken care to the last detail. We enjoyed the harmony and comfort of the interior (totally aligned with the Cycladic architecture), the relaxing and playful moments by the pool, the extraordinary view from the verandas, the luxury of the spa area.

The houses are surrounded by a beautiful garden which is worth exploring- there are different kinds of aromatic plants, few trees, flowers, two play areas and some hammocks.

The kitchens were fully equipped with anything we could have possibly needed or even imagined.

Albert and Lola were cleaning and maintaining the place on a daily basis. We were impressed by their discrete and polite presence.

One of the reasons though this place will always stay in our hearts is because it accommodated one of the most beautiful moments of our life: our wedding. Organizing a dinner and a party for 100 people is not an easy task. It would have never been possible without the support of the owners, Evi and Vasilis. Six months in advance they provided us with the plan of the houses so we could make the arrangements of the dining tables, they brought us in contact with the person who installed the sound system in the houses to make sure we rent the extra sound equipment with the correct specifications, they allowed us to visit 3 months in advance to inspect and figure out our decoration plans. They have always been polite and very responsive to any e-mail we have sent them.

I was really touched though by the way they wanted everything to be perfect for us and our guests during the wedding day. They payed attention to the correct lighting of the tables and made sure everything was running smoothly. Again their presence was extremely discrete.

Evi and Vasilis thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this amazing experience.

Kato Koufonisi is almost uninhabited. It features only a handful of houses, beautiful beaches and a quaint tavern famous for its fish soup.

The eastern side of the island is adorned with many charming beaches with golden sand or pebbles and the landscape is completed with small deserted bays lined with sand and cave-forming rocks. Some of the beaches have taverns and beach bars that organise parties at nights with a full moon. The waters are of unrivalled beauty!

Discover the natural beauties and the xerophyte landscape of the Cyclades by strolling along the natural footpaths of the island. The island offers fresh fish every day.
