A small heaven on earth
On the East side of Andros, north of the cosmopolitan Chora, lies a rare and protected wetland. Part of Natura 2000, the largest network of protected areas in EU, offers a heaven to Europe’s most valuable and threatened species and habitats. In this magical place where the river meets the sea, 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 fourteen traditional insular cottages spreading next to the river and the plane trees. The harmony in the design and construction will put you in touch with nature.
The houses 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 in white and earthy colors are harmoniously combined. All the cottages have a sitting room, bathroom, bedroom, simple kitchenette and a paved courtyard sheltered by a pergola. Large windows allow the daylight in, provide 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 O.live and offer hotel amenities inspired by nature. With the pure Greek olive oil and its beneficial properties as the key ingredient, it boosts your body and, consequently, your spirit to the top level again. Freshness, peace, stimulation, liveliness, and invigoration are some of the senses that will overwhelm you. The 100% Greek O.live care products guarantee absolute safety and effectiveness as the combination of their natural ingredients is a kind of therapy for the user.
