Tour Overview

A UNIQUE WALKING HOLIDAY ON ANDROS, CYCLADES, GREEK ISLANDS This short walking holiday program is addressed to those that love hiking but would rather prefer to stay in a holiday cottage than a hotel and go deep into the local way of life. Two pleasant circular walks from your door to the countryside exploring the surroundings and the picturesque villages, coming back each day to your cosy comfort house. Breakfasts are prepared by the hosts as well as your welcome and farewell dinner. Excellent accommodation for transformational travellers seeking the cultural experience of Andros. The residence is situated in the preserved settlement of Ypsila near the capital of Andros. Tranquil Château was built in the early decades of 19th century and was abandoned in the mid 20th.
