The perfect holiday house on Amorgos for people who enjoy the pleasure of simple, traditional accommodation with gorgeous views of mountains and sea. It is on the edge of Langada, a charming traffic free village with shops and cafes a few minutes away. It was restored for the owner by local craftsmen and won a preservation award from the Amorgos society of Athens. The modern bathroom is discreetly separated from the historic house. Ask the owner for more details on a website.
You can enjoy an historic whitewashed house, with stone arches spanning two of its rooms to support the wooden ceilings. The spacious living room, contains two double beds in recesses, a dining table, antique sofa and storage for clothes, as well as many books in English, French and Dutch. A second bedroom, at a lower level has two single beds that can be put together. The bakehouse has been converted into a third bedroom. All the rooms open to the walled garden with a raised terrace in the centre, and views across a gorge to the mountains of Naxos and the sea.
The whole house and garden are for the exclusive use of guests. It offers shady places under a pine tree and a grape vine. It is reached by a walk of less then ten minutes along pedestrian streets and down steps from the parking place and the village square. Many of our guests are regular visitors. One family has come every summer for the last thirty-five years. It is necessary to take a taxi from the harbour on arrival, but there are regular buses during the summer

Amorgos is further from Athens than most of the crowded touristy islands in the Cyclades. It is seven hours from Piraeus to the port of Aegiali with three ferries a week and more in the high season. Ferries also go to Katapola at the other end of the island on different days. From there you can take a taxi to Langada. Be sure to tell Carolina your arrival plans. If necessary she can book you a taxi,

I am an architectural historian. and enthusiastic traveler I have taught at Universities in the UK and USA and published many books and articles. My most recent book is Greco-Roman Cities of Aegean Turkey. (See my website I was drawn to Amorgos by my sister who has lived on the island for over fifty years. With her help an local craftsman I restored and added comforts to this house over the last forty years. I live in Seattle and travel a lot; so I like to offer the house to others when I am not there. I look forward to my visits to the island. I particularly enjoy hiiking through the beautiful landscape and other picturesque towns
