Another great stay in Andros
It's our second time at Victoria and Ed's house in Andros, and we simply loved it as much as the first time. The house is full of charm, old stone house, very simply and nicely renovated and decorated. Great terrace with a beautiful view on the hills of Andros and the sea, and on the starry sky at night. Location is ideal, 10-15 minutes from Gavrios, small harbour with everything you need for shopping, eating and drinking, and 10-20 minutes from (in our mind) the best beaches of Andros, i.e the ones where you often meet not more than 5 or 10 other people. Kitchen is big and practical, and the terrace is ideal for bbq. The only thing which could be improved is the bathroom in the main house, which lacks a window - most of us ended up by taking our showers in the bathroom of the second house, which is simple but perfect. Not more to add except that if you're thinking about renting in Andros, Victoria and Ed's place should clearly be on top of your list!
Andros jewel of a house
Victoria and Edward's house is exquisite.
Ideally located, meaning far enough from town center of Gavrio, but close enough to it so that car shopping is never a problem, and no matter what close to any good beaches of the area, the house is decorated with style and taste, but nothing showing off though, you'll never get the feeling that you are living into some sort of UK deco magazine where touching a carpet or a plate in the kitchen becomes a problem. Quite handy, practical and simple, the house functions well, and is charming. Last but not least, it benefits from a splendid view upon Felos bay. In summer, night view with Moon shining on the bay is something you will never forget.
A highly recommanded house for people loving beautiful, lovely and charming places, yet practical, comfortable and simple. We've been loving and renting this place for a couple of years and will come back for sure!

A perfect week's break
This was our first trip to Andros, I was tipped off by a friend about it, and I'll definitely be going back, it's a perfect, unspoilt island with countless beautiful, uncrowded beaches to explore - we were often the only people on the beach and usually the only Brits which was wonderful!
The property is charming, situated in a peaceful, private location. It was simply decorated, and certainly what you'd call 'rustic'. However everything is in working order, it's comfortable, and there's a lovely sheltered area (important on such a windy island!) to sit and eat dinner or watch the sunset. Whilst you're at the house you feel like the only people on the island, yet its within a 10 minute drive of the local town with plenty of (quite) lively bars and restaurants, and a fairly well stocked supermarket (only complaint was, not enough Tonic for our sundown G&T's!) Also this town (Gavrio) is helpfully where the Athens ferry arrives into so it was handy for getting there and away.
Andros is a hidden gem of Greece, so wonderfully quiet and timeless - it's not a place of great luxury - you won't have your sea view impeded by superyachts - the restaurants were cheap and delicious, and the locals were wonderfully friendly despite my total lack of Greek language skills.
The Owners are clearly really attached to the property and have decorated it beautifully - the room with all the model boats is a particular treat. It was nice to stay in such a homely atmosphere. It's well maintained, with decent showers and plenty of space, the kitchen is small but perfectly useable, and well stocked with cutlery/crockery etc, we cooked at home most nights as the seating area outside was such a nice place to spend the evening. It did get hot at night but the rooms were perfectly airy and well ventilated, and there was the odd fan laying about but I didn't find I needed one with the windows open.
We spent most days exploring the various beaches and tavernas at our end of the island, all of which were wonderful - annoyingly I now cannot remember the names of them, but the owners had included a helpful pack of information in the house with tips on the good beaches etc which was very useful.
We were after a week of relaxing, eating, drinking and sunbathing and we got exactly that, and more, in spades.
All in all it was a wonderful place to stay and i'll definitely be booking in again next year if I can.
idyllic island retreat
The farmhouse is exactly as advertised - a simple yet utterly charming retreat on one of the few remaining truly unspoiled Greek islands. Its location is ideal: a short distance from Gavrio, the ferry port, which boasts plenty of Greek charm and several delicious restaurants, and 20-odd minutes by car to various sheltered and almost certainly empty beaches (although a bumpy trip across the island in search of other, even more breathtaking coves is a trip extremely well spent).
The view from the farmhouse to the sea is, give or take the odd ruin and herd of goats, uninterrupted and leaves you feeling like the only people on the island. Indoors is clean and comfortable, although very little time was spent under the roof given what lies outside the door! It is as tranquil a place as they come.
Andros offers something for everyone - friendly tavernas, beautiful walks, cliff jumping, nightlife in Batsi and more beaches than there are days to explore them...
It is, in essence, a true, no-frills Greek island experience.
a quiet and individual place
The property occupies a secluded elevated position with an unbroken seaview. The beach is 23 min drive away and can only be reached by car.
The 5 bedroomed house ( with comfortable beds) has been faithfully restored from what was once a ruin and tastefully furnished and decorated. To be recommended for both, those people looking for a quiet and remote brake, as well as those seeking a family holiday. All facilities in the house are adequately functional.
There isn't, though, sufficient cuttlery and crockery and also not enough garden furniture if the house is fully occupied. There are also inadequate shady areas to sit during the hottest time of the day.
On a positive note the beaches on this hilly island are usually relatively deserted even during the high season (although only accessable with a long car drive).
The small haven of Gavrio offers typical island charme but is perhaps rather quiet for those looking for entertainment.
Η Άνδρος βρίσκεται στα βόρεια κυκλαδικά νησιά και είναι μια από τις λιγότερο κατοικημένες περιοχές. Δεν έχει αεροδρόμιο και είναι δύο ώρες ακτοπλοϊκώς από το λιμάνι της Ραφήνας, το οποίο είναι 30 λεπτά με το αυτοκίνητο (με λεωφορείο εφόσον απαιτείται) από το αεροδρόμιο της Αθήνας. Όλα τα πλοία φτάνουν στο λιμάνι του Γαυρίου, το οποίο είναι 10-15 λεπτά με το αυτοκίνητο από το σπίτι. Τα πλοία μπορούν να μεταφερθούν στην Τήνο και στη Μύκονο για μια μέρα ή δύο εκδρομές.
