About this listing

Gorgeous, comfortable, fully equipped villa 240 q m with amazing views and special fittings and furniture that combines the traditional with the modern in simple lines. The privileged position outside the settlement guarantees total relaxation

The space

Villa Melissa is situated at the southwest side of Andros at an ideal location that provides a marvelous view of the sea extending from behind the cliffs and the islands of Yaros, Kea ( Tzia ) and Siros at the horizon.
At a close distance from the house there are the organized ( sunbeds , umbrellas & beach bar facilities ) beaches of Apothikes and Halkolimionas which both display unique characteristics and can be quickly reached within a 5 minute ride . All other beaches of the southern side of the island can be easily reached within a 15-20 minute ride .
The Villa is positioned right in the middle of the distance between the two major towns of Bátsi and Andros (Chora) and travelling to either one of them should not take more than 15 minutes .
The house is designed to fit the islands character by combining elements of wood and stone. The exterior setting consists of paved space and of a 10 x 5 m swimming pool( in operation normally from May the 20th till October the 15th ,however the operation period can be adjusted according to guests needs ) which is framed by grass lawn . A wooden pergola is set up and attached to the preface of the house and below it there is room for sitting and dinning while still maintaining a view of the sea , the sky and the natural scenery.
The interior offers a variety of features which vary from the traditional aesthetic to the modern one . The rooms are spacious and openly connect to each other , thus attributing a sense of wholeness to the interior space . Moreover they are designed and decorated in such a manner so as to be both aesthetically pleasing but also simplistic in nature and practical to live in .
Villa Melissa is divided in two floors , connected by a staircase. The lower one is occupied by a large living room and a sitting room , a fully equipped kitchen , a guest room and a bathroom( Shower/Wc with shower cabin) . Almost every one of the rooms connects with the exterior space by French doors that allow plenty of natural light to penetrate into the villa and also provide a view to the sea.
The upper floor consists of two bedrooms with queen sized beds , which are served by a single bathroom and a master bedroom with its own bathroom. These rooms share the same qualities with the ones of the ground floor , having ample natural lighting and unrestricted view to the sea .
Enjoy your stay .

This is a gem of a house. A little piece of paradise. First, the owners were very quick to respond and very helpful with directions, suggestions, booking and all other questions we had. Second, the location of the house was great. It was between both Batsi and Chora which was ideal! Third, the house itself was amazing. Very clean, spacious, beautiful and all the amenities you need. We were 8 people staying in this house and it was very comfortable for all of us. I would recommend this house in a heartbeat!!!!

We had a marvellous stay in Antonio's house. The house is located on a lovely hill in a secluded location, and has an amazing view of the sea and of surrounding mountains. The house was very clean, elegantly furbished and very comfortable. Its spacious indoors and outdoors rooms allow for a very relaxing stay. Restaurants, taverns, beaches and shopping centres are not far and can be easily reached by car. We had a wonderful stay in Antonio's house and highly recommend it, both for families with children as well as for group of friends and couples. Antonio was a wonderful host and was always available to support us in any queries or issues that we had.

Everything worked out smoothly. The view from the house is fantastic, overlooking the sea. Nearby, about 5-10 minutes by car, are two beaches with umbrellas, sunbeds, nice snorkeling etcetera. The location is quiet, no neighbours, you will need a car. It is about 20 minutes by car to grocery stores, restaurants are nearby (they also home delivery). A very nice house, AC in the bedrooms, all equipment in the kitchen, infinity pool. We had a great week and can highly recommend this house!

We had a super family-holiday in Antonis beautiful villa. Antonis is very easy to communicate with, and we always get quick replays. The villa is perfect for a big family, and everything was just wonderful. The villa is situated lonely with the most fantastic view.

We had a great time staying at this villa. The location is good (though a car is essential) with a great beach a 5 minute drive away, and you are equi-distant with the 2 main towns (c. 15-min drive). And of course there's the pool if you're feeling lazy. The view is dramatic and stunning. The villa itself and all the facilities are very new and of a higher standard than most I've seen on offer. There is lots of room and we were very comfortable. The villa is raised up quite a bit from the road, but because of a curve, you can see cars going round for a while. It's a bit strange when you first see it, but you very quickly get used to it - and it applies to most places on the island. There is no noise issue as the building has excellent insulation (also useful as the island can get windy). Antonios responded quickly to my communications and was very helpful. A very enjoyable and comfortable stay, I happily recommend it.

The owners were at the house to meet us when we arrived and made us feel welcome. The location of the house is secluded (a car is a must!), but it was quite easy to find with instructions Antonios had mailed us (although we did miss it at our first attempt by half a kilometer, because it was dark). They gave us plenty of information on the house and of the island. The house is large and beautiful, and has been tastefully decorated. The view of the sea is spectacular. There are goats wondering around near the premises, and we also spotted two snakes in the yard. So caution with snakes is advised. There are no nearby neighbors, but the owners have a separate house right next to the rented one, but they stayed there only one night and a day while we were there. When arriving, the owners informed us of the housekeeping that was due to arrive on Tuesday. They ended up coming on Wednesday. This we found a little uncomfortable, since we had to make plans according to their schedule (that was not the one we were told in the beginning). Other than that, everything worked out seamlessly, and we had an excellent stay at Antonios' place.

A truly incredible property that balances being "far" off the grid (closest grocery is about 15-20 mins) with being located on the main road (yet set far above it, steep climb!) between Gavrio and Andros. The view, as stated, is spectacular. There is no comparison. Antonis' house is a new build, constructed in the traditional stone style. We were a group of 6 (plus baby) and fit VERY comfortably here. The furnishings are beach chic and were clearly arranged by someone with a vision of entertaining. Antonis' family made sure we had everything we needed and were super responsive.I would highly recommend this vacation home and cannot wait to return again.
