Hortensia will charm those that seek a Cycladic paradise that differentiates itself from the stereotypical Cycladic architecture of sugar cube, whitewashed houses.
Andros Island, well known for its cultural richness, and beautiful Chora with the grand old mansions and museums, is the greenest of all the Cyclades islands and only two hours by ferry from Athens.
Hortensia stands proudly overlooking the Aegean Sea and enjoys breath-taking views in the most peaceful of locations. Surrounded by spectacular multi-level gardens, with beautiful lawns and planted with cypresses, a wide variety of roses as well as orange, lemon and olive trees, are just a few of the elements that make up the lush landscape of the Estate.
