Chora Village Andros: This lovely little town is the capital of Andros and also the nicest and more interesting village of the island.
The meddling of mid-age houses, Neoclassical and Cycladic buildings, narrow alleys, stone walkways museums and beaches gives to Hora a unique atmosphere. Andros (Hora) is built upon a small peninsula, in the centre of the east coastline of the island, between the two long sandy beaches of Neiborio and Paraporti.
The heart of Andros Town has a unique beauty due to the combination of Venetian, Byzantine and Ottoman architecture. The gateway to the old city has been preserved and gives to the visitor the feeling of penetrating in another world and another time. The medieval atmosphere of the city co-exists in harmony with the modern one created by the new little shops, cafes and bars.
Andros Town has two squares: the first one is stone paved and surrounded with many cafes, little restaurants and pastry shops, all shadowed by a huge plane tree. The second square is paved with marble, has a statue of the Unknown Sailor and an amazing view of the sea and the rest of the town.
Because it is located at the tip of the peninsula, this square is the best place to go to see the beautiful Venetian-style stone bridge connecting Andros Town to a little islet supporting the remains of an old castle, built during the Venetian period in order to protect the city. The colorful houses and wonderful Neoclassical mansions add even more beauty to the town.
Hora is also the cause of the artistic reputation of the island, since it is housing many fine museums from which the Museum of Modern Art exposes, every summer, works of famous Greek and international artists.
Andros Town is located at 35 kilometers east of the harbor (Gavrio). From there, some lovely and picturesque villages can be reached, such as Messaria, a lovely medieval village, Menites, Stenies and Apoikia, where the famous Sariza spring is situated.
The 9 Muses Hotel is situated next to the cosmopolitan Chora of Andros, offering a unique blend of autonomy, comfort, and hospitality in an enchanting part of the island. They will be very glad to accommodate you in one of the spacious maisonettes or studios and offer you any information or assistance in order to make your stay in Andros a memorable one.
Alkyoni Studios are 20 meters away from the sandy beach of Neiborio and Philoxenia Anemomylos apartments are at the hill of Hora, called Anemomiloi. At a very close distance, you will find restaurants, coffee shops, and grocery stores. The main pedestrian street of Hora with the museums and the traditional alleys are only a short walk away from both locations.
A small window into the Aegean through the words “Als” which means sea and ”thea” which stands for the word view in Greek. With common denominator, the infinite blue, and letting the senses travel, Maria Lotsari, the owner of 6 luxurious apartments has managed to create a special place. The stone of Andros which covers the apartments creates a sense of tranquility, safety and warmth in a location where they can include the true meaning of the word ”holiday”, projecting through them the tradition and hospitality of Andros.
