Our dream takes place in Andros, the northest island and second in size after Naxos of the Cycladic complex. Known as Hydroussa (‘watery’) in ancient times, Andros is a historic heavenly refreshingly lush, a fertile place to come and dive for a while.

Traversed by four rivers, it’s a fecund island: waterfalls and springs are abundant, marble lions spout ice-cold mineral water, streams signposted by pink ribbons of oleander tumble down valleys criss-crossed with stone bridges and footpaths, and falcons and monk seals duck and dive at blissful, blustery beaches. If you seek serenity, you will find it through the peaceful rhythm of the surroundings while exhilarating outdoor activities are here waiting for the most sportive souls.

The old pathways of Andros, either stone paved or earth trails, the monasteries, the local recipes, the picturesque villages with their intriguing combination of architectural styles, from medieval and neoclassical to contemporary Aegean, constitute traces of Andros’s uninterrupted relationship between humans and nature for centuries, revealing the special culture of the place. The island’s centuries-long history and rich cultural heritage invite you on a journey of discovery: the fortress-like Panachrantos Monastery, the view from Faneromeni Castle, the Goulandris Museum of Contemporary Art in Chora, the old-fashioned patisseries of the stately capital, its stylish boutiques are some of the intense and mysterious experiences we suggest you.


Unaffected by the passage of time, a jewel glimmers in the heavens of the Mediterranean.
In a land where legends loom large, there’s something quietly magnificent about a little enigmatic bay where the waters always remains calm, migratory birds find their biotope and St. Nicholas Church and the lighthouse stare at the sea.
The beach of Achla, located in the homonymous region in northeastern coast of Andros, is one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, a benediction of brilliant tones and iridescent shadows, fine, white sand and emerald waters.

This gem cocoon reveals itself as a hidden paradise on earth after a crossing through tropical vegetation, enormous plane trees, small waterfalls and little lakes. Unforgettable experiences arise, from walking through the forest to swimming in the small lakes to discovering a place full of unique creatures as river crabs, eels, turtles, hares, partridges, rare migratory birds and colourful dragonflies.

Come and start to explore and unwind.


With its magical moving beauty, made of nature, silence, history and values, Andros is a sort of dream.
On its east side, north of the cosmopolitan Chora, lies a rare and protected wetland bordered by a river which flows down from the hill sides around Vourkoti village and ends its journey at Ahla beach. In this enchanting place where the river meets the sea we created ONAR, a small settlement of ten traditional insular cottages , and what seem s like a dream, unravels into reality.

Honouring the harmonious marriage between nature and human touch, the respect of this dreamy environment always pervades each of our choices and suggestions.

At Onar, all the House mirror the silent beauty of Cycladic architecture and are realised with local stone, wood and river reeds. Amenities are inspired by nature and produced with the pure Greek olive oil and its. Freshness, peace, stimulation, liveness and invigoration are some of the senses that will overwhelm you. Our sincere Greek hospitality brings life through the different structures and we invite you all to our communal feasts of just-caught fish and garden-fresh organic greens served under a giant plane-tree.
