Travel back in time and stay in Micra Anglia, an aristocratic 19th-century mansion on Andros Island. Meaning Little England in Greek, the name is an affectionate nod to the island's strong merchant naval heritage. The boutique hotel captures the romance of the area's past and is a landmark in the town.
Owner Dolly Valmas based the property around the notion of filoxenia – delivering a sense of warmth and generosity synonymous with Greek hospitality that will have you feeling relaxed and at home in no time.
Combining classic Cycladic style with modern touches, the décor is natural and warm. Designer Eleni Psalti used oak, marble, and stone to echo the isle's architecture, while at the same time bring it into the 21st-century. The pool with tiered water feature is an idyllic place to unwind.
It was my and my husband's dream to create a unique property on Andros that would reflect the grandeur of our island's rich history. We built the Micra Anglia Boutique hotel inspired by the original mansions in Andros and wanted our guests to experience this pure romance of Andros' past grandeur. The hotel is a complex of buildings, one of which was the house of famous Greek poet Andreas Empirikos. My favourite place is probably the garden of the hotel; I really enjoy a nice cup of herbal tea in the afternoon by the pool. It is totally relaxing.

Unless you're staying at Micra Anglia, you may not even realise the gastronomic experience that is Dolly's. Hidden away in a chic, art nouveau space, the authentic Aegean spot has a welcoming vibe and will delight the senses with beautifully presented local plates.
Room service is served from 8am until midnight and the snack bar is open from 11:30am till 6:30pm.
Andros is famous for its mouth-watering puddings which include sesame, rose petals, bergamot, amigdalota, and pasteli. Try these specialities in one of the many cafés or bakeries on the island, washed down with soumada, a traditional almond drink.
The 17 rooms at Micra Anglia are peaceful, indulgent spaces where wooden floors, marble, stone, and crisp white bedlinen combine to create a calming oasis.
Find a spot in the peaceful garden and pool area and surround yourself with lush greenery, herbs, and flowers. Or hit on-site Elxis Spa, where a selection of packages are on offer.
Andros is unlike all of the other Cyclades: verdant and dotted with waterfalls and streams, it's a nature-lovers paradise and one of the protected areas within the Natura 2000 network. Time stands still on the island: grand churches, quaint cobbled streets, and imposing architecture make it a charming place to visit. It's worth checking out ancient capital Palaiopolis, as well as the ruins of Ipsili. Trips and cruises can be organised by the concierge, as can babysitting.
Free parking is available.
