A charming and typically Greek abode overlooking the hills of Andros island and out onto the beautiful Aegean Sea. An astounding view!
Almost 300 years ago, Kotseli house was built on a mountain face and used by local farmers. It withstood many of the neighbourhood landslides thanks to the fact that it has a very solid rock foundation. You will notice the remains of the old village only meters away where the people had to gradually evacuate the landslides that kept occurring back in the 1800's.

Years later the bottom terrace was also carved from the rock face to make what are now cool and cosy "man cave" bedrooms.

This beautiful home has been owned by a French/English family since the early 80's. It was only 2 years ago that they decided to start renting it out.

Today you, your family or your group of friends can choose to live in this beautiful private property and enjoy the majestic views over the valley, sit back on the many terraces and just soak in the atmosphere under the shady olive trees.

Full of character, it is traditionally built with modern features that blend in with the the meter thick stone walls. There is no need for air conditioning as it remains nice and cool thanks to the way it was built all those years ago.

There is filtered running water and a fresh water Spring to collect your drinking water only 20 metres from the house.

One has free access to a kitchen garden (vegetables and fruits in season).

There is an outdoor BBQ.

Expectations : Like mentioned in the top description, this is not a modern Villa but more of a unique and authentic kind of place that gives guests a true special feeling of comfort within the walls of an ancient house. The kind of place one builds good, homely memories in. It has old fireplaces, wooden beams on the ceiling, crooked walls, the kitchen steps have been carved out of the mountain rock, there is an outdoor access bathroom, low doorways... It is a place that is full of positive energy and will appeal to those avoiding the more "sterile' type of accomodation hotels or other guest houses offer. And the view is just divine!

During your stay, the landkeeper/host lives in a separate building at the bottom of the property and uses a different entrance/driveway than you. This means you have complete privacy but also someone at hand to deal with any problem that may occur ( water troubles, lost keys...) and also for advice on the beautiful island Andros is !

A gardener might appear at times to water the gardens.

The road to the house is tarred and continues past the property towards other villages and beautiful beaches.

In 2016 Villa Kotseli became an EOT approved furnished villa meaning that it is up to standard according to the Greek Office of Tourism. And of course family friendly :)

Getting around

You need to rent a car, quad or scooter to get around Andros island. There are also buses from Gavrio to Batsi then on to Hora. You can catch a taxi too. Our lovely island is 40km long and 16km max wide. There are up to 40 different beaches to see all dotted around the coast with various types of road to access them. You don't need a 4by4. If you need a change from beaches there are lots of interesting panoramic drives to be taken inland, I can also give you a map indicating all the different hiking trails you can take yourself on. Needless to say, you can keep your days as busy or as lazy as you like!

Directions

These directions are for planning purposes only. You may find that construction projects, traffic, weather, or other events may cause conditions to differ from the map results, and you should plan your route accordingly. You must obey all signs or notices regarding your route.
