Spiti 5 Rontokardo
A perfect spot. Beautifully decorated villas. Great prices and with a large swimming pool to cool off in throughout the hot summer months, plus a very easy transfer from Athens airport.
Gorgeous, stone villas, offering an artistic styling in a tranquil setting with awesome sunset views over the Aegean Sea.
The Rondokado Stone villas are situated in a large, gated estate in the hills of Kea Island. Each villa has been tastefully and artistically decorated blending traditional building techniques with modern furnishings and appliances.
On the ground floor of each house is a double bedroom with comfortable furnishings and full wardrobes and a twin bedroom. Both bedrooms share a full bathroom, though there is a second guest bathroom upstairs. Also on the ground floor is a large laundry room and storage area.
Upstairs a large living area is situated with comfortable sofas and chairs in plain colours, punctuated by art on the walls and ethnic rugs on the floors. This central living area also offers a dining area and a modern Italian style kitchen. The two floors are connected internally by a marble staircase and each house has a tv intercom connecting to the main gate.
French doors connect both the upper and lower floors with external terraces perfect for alfresco dining or that well deserved sundowner.
The communal garden has been planted with indigenous plants, flowers, trees and shrubs, interspersed with marble planters and large clay pots. The villas share a large infinity swimming pool with its own bar and seating area.
The port of Korissia and the yacht marina of Vourkari are a 15 minute drive away while the main village of Ioulis is only 5 minutes by car. The sandy beaches of Otzia, Pisses and Koundoros are easily accessed along paved roads and the tavernas in all the villages and little ports and harbours offer fresh homemade cuisine and seafood caught locally.
Kea is an island which has escaped the influence of mass tourism and therefore offers something really attractive to the independent traveller. It is located just an hours ferry ride from Lavrion so can be easily accessed from Athens airport. Kea has retained a sense of timeless tranquility and its many coves and bays offer perfect beaches to the few that happen to stumble on this little Hellenic gem.
Prices based on four guests sharing and include twice weekly maid service.

I am sorry not to have replied to your email sooner! Too busy when we got back!
We fell in love with kea the minute we got off the ferry! Just like the Greece we fell in love with thirty years ago!
The villa at Rontocardo was just perfect. Loved the position, adored the little patio and particularly loved the fact that we had it to ourselves. Yianis was attentive, but not intrusive. The kitchen was very well equipped, lovely china and glass. The villa was beautifully furnished, lovely linen etc, lots of hot water. We really thought it was wonderful.
If we don't buy on the island, we will be back!
Ps, the pool was wonderful, if very cold with the meltemi ! Yiannis provided sun beds for us at the villa, simple very portable ones which was great.
Thanks to pretty Greek villas for introducing us to Kea and looking after us so well.

thanks for you e-mail.
We enjoyed our stay in Kea very, very much. The house was nice, very clean - the housekeepers were very friendly, asking almost every day if we needed anything etc (although they seem not to be very much used to guests, cleaning on Sunday evening while a family just comes home from the beach, but this was really the only thing to "complain" about ... they were great).
The pool is just great.
All in all we had a great time, thanks for your support and perfect service again.
