In Neimporeio area in Chora of Andros, there is a small paradise farm close to the sea. Follow then,
The old cottage of grandmother has been renovated to a fully furnished and cozy studio. It is at the heart of a farm called ILIANTHOS (means the blossom of Sun flower in Greek), which is is four minutes away from local market of Niborio and eight minutes away from Hora (the Capital of the island). The whole scenery is ideal for peaceful and rest moments. In the farm you meet nice permaculture gardens, a lot of flowers and rich vegetation. There is also the unique natural spring in the area that fills two cisterns, a big one and a smaller (that is a shelter for the two geese of the farm). It is also a great destination and departure for trekking tourism (it is very advanced and organized in Andros), surfing, sailing (there is an academy for water sports and specially for sailing in a distance of 5 minutes on feet). Here you can also enjoy massage, personal training and traditional cooking (also vegetarian and vegan if it is asked). When you come at the farm you are most welcome in spite of us from a pair of geese !
Guests may have access to all areas of the farm, gardens that surround the studio, and to a traditional pool. In front of studio there is also its own terrace.

I'm an engineer, passionate with architecture and renovation of old houses and monuments. For the last ten years, I live in Andros in a small forest paradise close to the sea. I love land and my vision is, some day to be independent, and to produce all the natural products that mother earth can offer me with the method of permaculture.
I like swimming, walking through old paths of Andros and to discover old myths, plants and secrets.
I also love reading books, fine arts, travelling, to hear original traditional music from all over the world and of course to dance.
