The closest Cycladic island to Athens, yet feels like the furthest when you are there… Kea (Tzia) is a charming, not very large, and very picturesque island with small valleys that are planted with vines and fruit-trees that run right down to the sea. It is doted with archaeological sites and artifacts, ancient foot paths, miniature chapels, windmills and monasteries.
The short distance from Athens, the magnificent landscapes and beaches, as well as a surprisingly long network of marked paths for trekking have drawn many Athenians to build here some of the most eye-catching villas in our Greek portfolio.
The island remains genuine for those seeking an unspoilt experience and is an excellent alternative for those who want to experience Greece as the Greeks do. Kea is is the closest Cycladic island to Athens; only 1hr by boat from the port of Lavrio.
Lavrio port is only 20min drive from Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport.
Boat Tickets to Kea cost 10 Euros / person.
Car Rental is strongly advised for Kea island.
