ACTIVITIES

Trekking

Andros, unlike the other islands of Cyclades, is ideal for hiking due to its mountainous nature and the variety of springs that offer a unique experience.

In recent years, there has been a systematic effort by the “Andros Routes” network (www.androsroutes.gr) to record, maintain and promote these routes. Hikers in Andros can enjoy everything: Old bridges, watermills, valleys or even small waterfalls! You can walk beside rivers (Achla, Vori, Pythara), have the opportunity to admire “stenes” (stone-walled paths) and enjoy unique views.

Biking

The house provides 5 bicycles so you can  bike to the beach and also through the Livadia area paths and the surrounding picturesque villages, Vrahnou, Messaria, Lamira and Sineti.

Water Sports  & Other Activities

The island also offers facilities for scuba diving, windsurfing and sailing at the nautical club of Andros.

You can also rent a small boat for the day and visit the more remote beaches of the island which cannot be reached by car.

Cultural Activities

Andros is an island of culture and art. It features many Museums with best known the MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART which hosts every summer an exhibition of international artists. The works of significant modern artists, which are exhibited since 1986 until nowadays, are a benchmark in the cultural scene, introducing both the museum and Andros in the Greek cultural map. The museum has hosted, among others, artists such as Paniaras, Picasso, Matisse, Karagatsis, Kandinsky, Bouzianis, Balthus, Galanis, Giacometti, Klee, Chagall, De Chirico, Rodin, Joan Miró, Georges Braque, Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghikas, Sophia Vari etc.

The OLIVE MUSEUM is housed in one of the best preserved old olive mills in Cyclades.It is the animal-powered olive mill of Dimitris Chelmis at Ano Pitrofos (10’ drive from Chora). The building dates back earlier than 1823 and was restored according to the traditional architecture. This olive mill retains its original equipment and in 1997 was transformed into a museum, where visitors can get a view to the traditional oil production method in Cyclades.

The KYDONIEOS FOUNDATION, founded in 1994, is organizing a special event called “Ploes” that takes place every summer introducing important painting and sculpture exhibitions of famous artists, such as Tsoklis, Pavlos, Takis, etc.

In the summer of 2015 the new theatre of Andros opened to public and hosted the 1ST INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF ANDROS with concerts, theatre performances and many other events. The theatre is built as an amphitheatre, in the heart of Andros town (Chora) with materials that dominate the Andros’s nature like the stones, using the technique of local architecture being able to host up to 900 people.
