Beachfront Villa Ikaros
Nestled on a seafront plot with private access to the beach, Villa Ikaros offers a stunning scenery and a relaxed pace of life in the very heart of the Aegean Sea, on the island of Ikaria.

The outside area has a fully equipped bbq area (sink, fridge, etc.), a traditional oven (wood/coal), and two large sitting areas, one by the pool and one covered by a pergola and used as the main outdoors dining area. The spacious garden is equipped with an automated irrigation system and a 40 sqm swimming pool that overlooks the sea.
A private path provides instant access to the pebbly beach, leading till the water’s edge.
Other features of this villa are:
- The possibility to build another 60 sqm on the plot.

- Wooden hut, used as a storage space.

The island of Ikaria belongs to one of the 5 “Blue Zones” in the world, and especially during summer months the island is visited by a select group of visitors from around the globe.
The villa is nestled on a quiet road near the sea-sided village of Faros, in a distance of approx. 3 km someone can find shops, markets and beachfront tavernas. Its location offers the double-fold benefit of being 5 km away from the airport and 10 km from the port of Agios Kirikos. You can reach Ikaria both by ferry boats (4,5 hours) and direct flights (40 min.) from Athens.
Trivia: “Blue Zone” is a name given to five regions in the world where people routinely surpass average global life expectancies, mainly due to geography, culture, diet and lifestyle.
