Sailing Holidays in Andros

Sailing Holidays in Andros

Andros is located in the northernmost island of Cyclades with a great naval tradition and an unusual landscape; apart from the sandy beaches, there are rocky coastlines, mountain ranges alternating with fertile plains, lush vegetation and abundantly flowing streams.

The capital of the island is home to famous Greek captains and ship owners, and there is a remarkable combination of medieval, neoclassical and island style evident in its houses.

Flights of stairs, a spacious square with trees, narrow streets, remarkable churches and museums, shops, cafes and restaurants play their part in the beauty of the place. To top that beauty off, there is a Frankish castle on an islet connected to the main island with an arched stone bridge of the 13th century.

Enjoy the flora of the main island: chestnut, walnut, sycamore, oak, weeping willows, poplar, mulberry, osier and olive trees, fields of thyme, crocus and sage, and, in between, paved paths which connect them to the beautiful village of Messaria and the village of Faneromeni within a castle that is ten centuries old and perched at an elevation of 600 m.
