Villa Bianca is a traditional Astypalea’s house, located on a small hillside close to Chora, the capital of the island. Bianca is part of a bigger villa divided in 3, hosting 2 more independent, luxurious villas with separate entrances and private terraces and balconies. The location of the house offers to visitors great advantages since it’s in a small distance from the hot spot of the island and the main port, just on the boundaries of Astypalea’s Wildlife Refuge. The uninterrupted view to the horseshoe -like Chora is priceless, especially when combined with the outdoor comforts of the villa. After the magnificent sunsets, guests of Villa Bianca get thrilled by the starry sky hanging over their heads and the dominating over Chora floodlit venetian castle and its walls, built on the highest point of the opposite hill.
When in Villa Bianca, guests enjoy the convenient, quite area. Chora, a beautiful village with interesting routes, whitewashed houses and dozens of those typical island alleys, is easily accessed but in a good distance to offer guests more privacy. The same happens with the Wildlife Refuge, on the south-west of the villa. The beaches of the island, more than 60, can be visited by car while those hidden, inaccessible by land along with the small, uninhabited islets spread around Astypalea are the best reason to take one of the colorful fishing caiques from the port and start exploring. Astypalea has a characteristic butterfly shape and its two “wings”, called Mesa Nisi and Ekso Nisi (inside and outside island), are joined by a strip of land just 105 meters wide, the Steno (strait). Just after Steno, 10 km from Villa Bianca, is located the Airport of Astypalea and after it visitors can find more of indented coastline with sheltered bays, sandy beaches and remote picturesque chapels waiting to be explored.
Villa Bianca, just like the island of Astypalea, is a “bridge” between the Cyclades and the Dodecanese, combining features of both island complexes and cultures. The construction of the whole house along with the exterior and interior design fetch a mix of elements, exuding the genuine nature of Astypalea.
Bianca consists of two levels with a total area of 120 sq.m. It has 3 bedrooms (2 open plan and 1 master), 2 bathrooms (one on each level), a fully equipped kitchen with a small dining table, an open plan main dining area, an open plan living area and an outdoor Jacuzzi with a big comfy sitting area on the terrace providing superb views to the Aegean’s big blue. The decoration both inside and outside is dominated by light tones, sleek walls and floors, stone and pebble tiles. The handmade wooden furniture, the wooden beams ceiling and the characteristic greek islands’ wooden doors and windows create a warm atmosphere in the house and, seen under the ample natural light streaming from the kitchen’s see-through ceiling, compose a rare color palette. The built-in sofas with soft cushions on make up the living areas both inside and outside the villa. The designer details by Philippe Starck in the bathroom area and the selection of plants in the house complete the accommodation experience in the most natural way while some very special decoratives confer the indispensable element of the sea.
Villa Bianca also comes with all modern amenities including satellite TV system, high-tech audiovisual system, Wi-Fi internet connection, fully equipped kitchen with Smeg refrigerator, and services that meet all your needs, such as the rich traditional breakfast offered in your room every morning.
