Kudos go to the owner, Sotiria, for creating such lovely place, with elegance and class.
We loved staying at The Art House! This was our second trip for our family of four with two small children. The Art House is a lovely space and perfect for exploring the beautiful island of Kea. The villa is well for equipped for children and a really beautiful location. Sotiria (the host) is so welcoming and friendly and is always on hand to help.
Secret island, charming house, excellent location, lovely and kind host. The Art House is more than we expected. 1- Island: Kea is not a well known island for tourists and that's good:) It's one hour from Athens (Lavrio) by ferry. People from Athens and yacht owners are the most visitors of the island. Fantastic restaurants, hidden and lovely beaches, small towns... If you're looking for a quiet but high-class vacation Kea is for you. 2- House: Charming stone house both inside and outside with a spectacular view over Vourkari. Simple and well decorated and have tasteful paintings in the walls. Very neat, clean and safe. The house is cool even there's no air condition because of it's stone structure. Sotiria thought every single detail you need to be feel like at home. Totally it's perfect for 2 families in separate 2 floors (if you have kids there's another room for them too) 3- Location: 5 mins by car to Vourkari which is the heart of the island, 7 mins to one of the best beaches, Gialiskari, 10 mins to Korissia the port. You need a car that's for sure but the location is really excellent. 4- Host: Sotiria took us from the port of Korissia, lead us to the house, explained everything about the house, gave some tips about the island also left simple but important needs like water, butter, coffee... And she was there by phone whenever we need. She's kind, helpful and lovely to chat about everything. You'll never be regretful if you come to The Art House in Kea.
This property is marvellous and an excellent place to spend in any season on Kea. We were there during winter and it was lovely to curl up around the fire and watch the storms roll in. There are some excellent walking trails around the property. While you could get around without a car (we did - used taxis and walked) it may be helpful to hire a car. What makes this property special though is the owner who goes out of her way to make you feel like you are just a friend visiting her home. The property is suitable for a family with children, some friends staying together or two couples staying - very adaptable. Fingers crossed I'll get to return one day.
The house is near Vourkari and not far from the beach in Otzias (car needed), with a good view. It's recently built, of a high standard and well appointed. There is no ac but it's designed in a way that you don't really need it. There are two double bedrooms, the downstairs one being more generous and with its own bathroom. Upstairs there's a second double bedroom and a room with bunk beds for children, as well as a shower room. There are terraces on both sides of the house including at the back for when it's windy. Our stay was very pleasant and the host was welcoming and helpful. The local products were appreciated.
