stone built maisonettes, infinite sea view,
comfort and calm,
in the heart of Andros.
Combining the endless blue sea and freeing our senses to travel, we give life to the Andros stones, with which we built the maisonettes and created a sense of calm,
calm, safety and warmth.
We chose to build a space where we can allow ourselves to understand the real meaning of “vacation”, and enjoy Andros’ traditions and welcoming spirit.
“We invite you to visit Andros. Get acquainted with the island we chose to make our home. Take in all its beauty, Andros is stunning!

We are a family business, Althea was built with unique architecture, combining Andros stonework and modern amenities, in a complex of six autonomous traditional maisonettes in Aprovato, near Batsi, the tourism heart of Andros. At a height of 220 m and only 700 m from the sea which gives it its unique vantage point over the Aegean Sea and nearby islands.
