Villa Athenais on the Greek island of Kea is a villa with a swimming pool, easy access to the island’s two best beaches and amazing views of the sunrise and the other Cycladic islands with the blue Mediterranean ever constant.
Villa Athenais harmoniously blends with its captivating surroundings, offering stunning sea views of the Aegean Sea and spectacular sunrise.
Villa Athenais is situated on the east coast of the island, nestled on the top of a hill next to a wild canyon, overlooking the blue sea and eleven other islands: Andros, Tinos, Giaros, Siros, Mykonos, Serifos, Siphnοs, Kithnos, even Paros and Naxos and Evia in the far left.
Its architecture was based on the positive energy aesthetics of Feng Shui, which insure hospitality to the guest along with sensations of peace, pleasure and a union with nature.
The view from the terraces is staggering. The eye relaxes in the never ending blue horizon, that liberates both the mind and the soul. Thanks to the constant boat crossing in the sea roads stretching ahead, the visitor enjoys an ongoing seascape. Images from the ancient galleys deluge the imagination, since the same route was followed by those who conquered Troy. Just like the vivid, endless starry sky, especially on full moon nights, which nostalgically incarnate the poetic inspirations of Sappho.
Two of Kea’s best beaches, Sikamia and Kalidonihi, with their crystalline waters and Cycladic stone lapped by the sea, are very easily accessible.
Villa Athenais hosts up to 25 guests and is recommended for those who desire a nature-accented, spiritual and/or romantic getaway in a homey private setting away from city noise and rat race. It is also an ideal gathering place for families and groups of friends who want to celebrate an important event or just relax in an atmosphere of absolute privacy.
Villa Athenais can be rented separately (except for July and August), since it is composed of 5 self-contained units that constitute 5 independent residences.
At Villa Athenais, you will experience a sensational interaction with the nature of Kea, an island of wild, untamed beauty, steeped in Greek mythology, that is both so far and so near.
