In the historic part of Hora, you will find a ground-floor apartment, which is filled with pastel tones and earthy textures; this is one of the most quaint and cozy places to stay on Andros island. 

The property occupies the entire floor of an old house and features tiled floors, open shelves, stone walls, simple fittings, and splashes of pretty colours. This rustic and traditional island property is ideal for those seeking easy access and plenty of storage space. 

The kitchen entrance opens up to a large patio with benches and leads to a private enclosed patio where you can sit and have your coffee or late lunch. 

It’s ideal for families with young children, as they are free to run around in the garden and play outdoors. The cozy apartment has a back entrance from the living room too, opening to a pedestrian street with a Byzantine church.

The house is spacious and airy with one large living area that has one bed and two sofas suitable for children, plus a separate bedroom. There are also two baths with showers in each.

In the living room, you will find a well-stocked bookcase with novels relating to Greece and also a variety of books in English, French, Italian. 
 
The apartment is furnished with dainty handmade cushions, bed covers, and bed quilts; created by owner and host Efi Raptaki, a local quilt-maker, who is always there to greet her guests; Efi makes sure their stay in this citrus grove area is extra special. 
 
Located close to coffee shops and two beaches within walking distance, it really is a great option for those planning on staying on the island for a while and are in search of a well-priced, character-filled apartment that gives you a real sense of island living.
