Luxury holiday villas far away from the crowds, in the fairytale Cyclades
It is not difficult to immediately fall in love with Eros Keros. That name alone makes you spontaneously swoon. Wasn't Eros the god of love? Anyway. Perhaps those dreamy views of the crystal clear water of the Aegean Sea and the luxury and serenity you find in your villa also have something to do with it... Pack your bags and discover it for yourself!
Eros Keros is an enchanting place in the Cyclades, on the small island of Pano Koufonisi. It is run by owner Anita and her team and is, as they so beautifully describe, a sun-kissed boutique retreat. This special House of Hideaways accommodation consists of a number of beautiful, traditional houses that have been carefully decorated by Anita with tasteful furniture and personally selected works of art and accessories.
Each house features a bedroom with a private marble bathroom, a living area, a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious shaded terrace where you can lounge all day long, overlooking the Aegean Sea and Keros Island. If you look closely you can also see the islands of Amorgos, Glaronisi, Kato Koufonisi, Schinousa and at night you can even see the lights on Santorini and those of the cruise ships that are moored just off the coast.
During your holiday at Eros Keros you will enjoy peace and total privacy, but also unprecedented hospitality. For example, we ensure that you receive a delicious breakfast every morning. A breakfast that you can put together yourself with your favorites from the so-called 'Breakfast Basket List'. Think of freshly squeezed juices and fruit, freshly baked bread, eggs, Naxian yoghurt, homemade jam, cakes and pies and local cheeses, tomatoes and an egg.
At Eros Keros your holiday is all about pure relaxation. You can take walks to the beach and along the surf, swim laps in the infinity pool while looking out to the sea, book a yoga class and enjoy a beneficial in-house massage. But do you also want to go out sometime in between? Then there are plenty of options. You can rent a bicycle to explore the island, go sailing for a day or swim in beautiful sea caves during a boat trip.
Pano Koufonisi or, the Koufonisia Islands, are a group of two small islands southeast of Naxos: Pano Koufonisi (Upper Koufonisi) and Kato Koufonisi (Lower Koufonisi). Eros Keros is located on Pano Koufonise, a fifteen minute walk from the only village on the island. An idyllic place with snow-white houses, authentic taverns, picturesque narrow streets and a harbor. On the island you will also find pearly white beaches, which you can almost completely have to yourself!
Tasteful and traditional
Eros Keros consists of several holiday villas, all with a well-thought-out interior, sea views, a fully equipped kitchen, bedrooms with beds from the Simmons brand, a beautiful seating area and a tasteful marble bathroom. Outside it gets even better: here you will find a spacious terrace where you can sit in the sun or shade, comfortable outdoor furniture and fabulous views over the clear blue Aegean Sea and other islands of the Cyclades.
Carefree enjoyment on the Cyclades
During your holiday in Eros Keros you can enjoy your holiday completely carefree. This way you can arrive in style, by helicopter, book an in-house massage or manicure and enjoy an extensive breakfast delivered to your door every morning. And would you like to have a nice drink later in the day? Then you can ask Anita and her team to prepare a snack board for you with various local cheeses, olives, salad, fresh fruit, toast and other snacks. It is also possible to enjoy a dinner of your choice in the evening, which is fully catered by Anita and her team. This is what a holiday is like, a real holiday!
