Andros, Villa Yasmin
Andros’ natural environment is a unique combination of captivating Cycladic beauty and Greek nature. Natural springs surging from the island’s soil have created a green landscape filled with high mountains and picturesque paths making up the ideal scenery for wonderful hikes in nature. The beaches found all around the island are known for their crystal-clear waters. Whether remote and quiet or popular with several amenities the beaches of Andros suit all tastes. Traditional dishes cooked with local products are served in small restaurants (called the ‘taverna’) found at the most picturesque locations of the island. Andros has managed to preserve the traditional features in the architecture of its houses. Stone and wood are the main raw materials used up until now in the greater part of the island, while the setting changes when approaching Chora, where one can find impressive neoclassical houses.
