A memorable family vacation
For the first time ever, our entire family — six adults and two children, three generations — gathered in Greece this summer for a week’s vacation. Villa Apoikia was the perfect place for us, comfortable and quiet, with incredible views and a variety of hikes, just a few miles from Andros town and our favorite beach. The home is architecturally impressive and beautifully set up for guests, with a safe garden for the children to play in, adequate cooking facilities, and very gracious hosts. Villa Apoikia has our highest recommendation.
We rented the villa for a week for 9 persons and we enjoyed it thoroughly! The villa is beautifully decorated in cozy country style – the pictures do not do it justice! The description of the villa is very accurate – it has three bedrooms on the ground floor and one suite on a lower floor which still has full natural lighting. The kitchen was well stocked with all the equipment we needed including espresso maker, microwave, etc. We had a lovely BBQ outside on the patio – you could choose from gas or charcoal grill. The owners, Chronis & Kali, are wonderful and very helpful – they gave us advice on restaurants, attractions, etc. The villa is secluded on a mountain on its own – so if you enjoy peace and quiet – this is the place to go. It has a lovely garden and wonderful views of the nearby villages and sea. For us, the location was also excellent because it was close enough to go to Chora in a 10 minutes and the lovely beach of Piso Gialia. We enjoyed the walk to the waterfall in Pithora – just in Apoikia village. We also enjoyed a visit to the cave – FOROS – in Alladinou. The island is windy though! The villa needs no A/C as it is always cool especially at night! We highly recommend this villa for anyone that wants an luxury accommodation at affordable rates. I would recommend the option of including wifi possibility as an optional extra feature. Thanks again Chronis & Kali!

We spent a week in this splendid house, welcome by the owner as Family coming for vacation.
So many things to say, first we arrived in a great area, with a nice view all around and in front of the sea. Then we get in this splendid house designed with taste and delicacy.
Every room is specific with bathroom where you can spend a lot of time !
I really felt the same way I feel home, walking in the garden done and worked as a diamond.
PS: I have no link with the owner 🙂 but really appreciate the way he welcome us in Greece.
My opinion is Yes you can rent without any trouble with house.

My turn to thank you and your wife for the excellent welcome we got and for the time we spent in your wonderful house in Andros. I told some friend of mine to keep your contact details.
I will write on Abritel our satisfaction to stay in your house and the quality of the relation with the owners.
We will be for sure very happy to be back with the nice weather we miss in Andros for more time.
If you have some request from France do not hesitate to give my phone number to explain the quality of your house.
