The first is the splendid sandy beach of Agios Sostis, located to the north of peninsula, an ideal and favorite place for all guests, but especially suitable for families with children, where they can safely enjoy swimming in the crystal clear waters of the bay. The second coastline, located to the south of peninsula, is a rocky shoreline also suitable for swimming but mostly ideal for water sports such as surfing and / or snorkeling.
Villa is situated on the slope of a small hill resting at sea. The view from the house is breathtaking. It overlooks the Aegean region enclosed by the islands of Tinos, Mykonos, Delos and Rhenia, which, according to ancient Greek mythology, but also some recent academic studies, is one of the brightest in the sunlight areas of the Mediterranean. This intense solar brilliance, known from ancient times as the "Apollonian Light", has attracted our ancestors from all over Greece to visit the area to experience its benefits.
