Villa Melissa is situated at the southwest side of Andros at an ideal location that provides a marvelous view of the sea extending from behind the cliffs and the islands of Yaros, Kea ( Tzia ) and Siros at the horizon.
At a close distance from the house there are the organized ( sunbeds , umbrellas & beach bar facilities ) beaches of Apothikes and Halkolimionas which both display unique characteristics and can be quickly reached within a 5 minute ride . All other beaches of the southern side of the island can be easily reached within a 15-20 minute ride .
The Villa is positioned right in the middle of the distance between the two major towns of Bátsi and Andros (Chora) and travelling to either one of them should not take more than 15 minutes .
The house is designed to fit the islands character by combining elements of wood and stone. The exterior setting consists of paved space and of a 10 x 5 m swimming pool( in operation from May the 1st till Oktober the 15th ) which is framed by grass lawn . A wooden pergola is set up and attached to the preface of the house and below it there is room for sitting and dinning while still maintaining a view of the sea , the sky and the natural scenery.
The interior offers a variety of features which vary from the traditional aesthetic to the modern one . The rooms are spacious and openly connect to each other , thus attributing a sense of wholeness to the interior space . Moreover they are designed and decorated in such a manner so as to be both aesthetically pleasing but also simplistic in nature and practical to live in .
Villa Melissa is divided in two floors , connected by a staircase. The lower one is occupied by a large living room and a sitting room , a fully equipped kitchen , a guest room and a bathroom( Shower/Wc with shower cabin) . Almost every one of the rooms connects with the exterior space by French doors that allow plenty of natural light to penetrate into the villa and also provide a view to the sea.
The upper floor consists of two bedrooms with queen sized beds , which are served by a single bathroom and a master bedroom with its own bathroom. These rooms share the same qualities with the ones of the ground floor , having ample natural lighting and unrestricted view to the sea .
