The Stone Houses
A small heaven on earth
On the East side of Andros, north of the cosmopolitan Chora, lies a rare and protected wetland. Covering an area of about 100 acres, it is bordered by a river which flows down from the hill sides around Vourkoti village and ends its journey at Ahla beach. In this magical place where the river meets the sea that we created ONAR.
In harmony with the natural environment
With respect to the protected park of the Ahla wetlands and inspired by Nature itself, we created a small settlement of ten traditional insular cottages spreading next to the river and the plane trees.
The harmony in design and construction of the cottages will put you in touch with nature.
The cottages of ONAR benefit from the silent beauty of Cycladic architecture and are made exclusively of natural materials: local stone, wood and river reeds. Inside, minimal furniture and details of reeds and wood in white and earthy colors are harmoniously combined. All the cottages have a sitting room, bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, an open fireplace or stove and a paved courtyard sheltered by a pergola. Large windows allow the day light in, provide for coolness during summer nights and give the sense of being outdoors.
Staying in one of ONAR’S cottages, makes you part of the natural environment, and enjoying simple and genuine Greek hospitality will make your dreams come true.
Onar, always trying to be a unique experience for every visitor, chose to work with APIVITA and offer hotel amenities APIVITA, inspired by nature.
The APIVITA is the first Greek cosmetics company since 1979, inspired from the bees, the rich biodiversity of 5.500 plants and herbs and the holistic approach of Hippocrates for health and beauty. For more information please visit the site www.apivita.com
