Welcome to Kea, the closest to Athens of all the Cyclades.
This old Cycladic traditional farmhouse offers the best of two worlds: architectural tradition and relaxation in the farm.
Feel cozy and inspired as soon as you enter the house: interior walls are corbelled inwards and are topped by a series of slabs which form the ceilings; the cement mortar floor, the joint stone walls, the wooden furniture, doors & windows reveal the beauty of craftmanship, simplicity and practicality.
What do you prefer most? Drinking a nice glass of Greek wine under the wattle, listening to the sounds of a cicada or watching the sea shimmering in the sunlight?
You can easily have it all…
Under a maple tree. an old stable for cows, chicken and hogs has been transformed into a cave-like residence. Fully equipped to be used as an ideal mini cottage.
The old hearth, stone benches, troughs, walls and slabs are living reminders of its original form. The inhabitants enjoy the calmness of the interior and its’ courtyard, enclosed by a high stone wall, makes the settlement a really private place to relax.
Retaining its purposefulness as a down to the basics architectural approach with a high attention to craftsmanship, this old rural building encompasses the motto “less is more”.
It all adds up as you watch the sun rising from the deep blue sea in front of you…
