The house is located on the first floor, on the second floor, Birgit from Germany lives who every so often makes berry pies and she goes around to the neighbourhood and offers a piece. Birgit is part of the community and makes paniyiria (fiestas) in Brussels to put aside money to better the island, she's such a lovely person, I hope you get a chance to meet her and have a coffee in the square.
Opposite to the house there is a Ikaria traditional bakery, revived by an Ikarian-American young man who is always smiling :) In two minutes you go from the alley to the front of the square where many coffe-shops are located with the local people playing backgammon and chess and there's also little tavernas with amazing food. If you rent a bicycle you can literally ride to all the beaches on the main road that is straight and not at all tiring. The beaches in Agios Kirykos are less occupied that make the experience more authentic. Of course you most definitely should check out the other side too. It has the Messakti beach it has the Nas beach, and the Nas river, and you should definitely find yourselves in my daughter's Myrto's cafe - cocktail bar to try her dishes in the place that most people on Trip advisor said they love the food the vibe and Myrto :) In Agios Kirykos you should definitely check out the hot springs and also rent a car and go to Seychelles beach. For anything else I can advise you with, feel free to ask in any time! Thank you!

Agios Kirikos, Ελλάδα

The past five years or so, there has been much interest about the island of Ikaria. Reporters all around the world have visited the land, where according to ancient Greek mythology Icarus landed, to conduct their perspective of what is the truth behind the secret of Ikaria.
Let’s take it from the beginning. According to the tales I heard from my grandmother, Ikaria, all through history, was a place where people had strong ethics about helping each other, loving each other. My great gran father was a great Algerian pirate, who the moment he stepped onto Ikaria, saw my great gran mother and fell in love, and decided to kiss his boat goodbye and stay there with her. I also remember her telling me about her childhood friend who was from Turkey, and they were trying to understand each other by using their hands. During the dictator’s years, it was a place where prisoners were sent to be ostracized. The Ikarians always welcomed them and treated them like their own. My other great grand mother was very wealthy and made a school along with many other philanthropies. In a few words the human interaction and the community have always been strong ideas in Ikaria.
Ikaria nowadays, is well known for the idea of longevity, and it is often described as the island where people forget to die. In order to explain it, some talk about the lack of time and stress, some of the diet, the wine and the virgin olive oil that is produced there, some of the fresh air and crystal waters. I haven’t heard of the Ikarian humor yet, which for me makes a big difference in comparison with all the other Greek islands I have visited. The Ikarians know how to laugh. They also know how to make others laugh. They live in a safe environment, where everyone is welcomed, and cultivate strong bonds within their community. I have heard my auntie from Detroit saying, the crisis hasn't touched Ikaria, and I agree, because they never take loans, they are sufficient to what they already have, and they offer to each other their goods, expecting nothing in return. I guess their secret is kindness as well as not taking life too seriously.
Here is what to expect on a usual summer in this blessed land. Great and fresh food. Relaxing swims in the ocean with the warm, tropical, Mediterranean summer breeze revitalizing the sense of smell in such a pleasant way. Soothing healing mineral waters that come from a natural spring in the middle of the Aegean sea. An ancient forest, the Ranti, with trees and specifically beeches, that their roots started a thousand years ago to say the least. The incredible Sunset in Nas beach, which during 6th century BC, the Ikarians built the temple of Artemis, the Godess of all nature, therefore the beach is also a nudist beach. Messahti, a beautiful beach where one can surf the waves. Raches, a village that the people traditionally have quite a twisted idea of the time. Since the times of the pirates, where they were hiding from them, they would start the day in the night time and sleep in the day time. I have witnessed a father with two toddlers going to get the groceries at 3:00 o’clock in the morning.
I really wish to write about the full moon parties and the paniyiria, the gatherings that have their roots of origin to celebrate Dionysus, in a company of food and wine, and music to dance to. This is something I can not even put into words, next summer you have to experience it for yourselves. The energy of the people dancing in circles is so unique and words couldn’t possibly describe it. Some call the one in Lagada, in the middle of nowhere, on a plain, the Greek Woodstock. It happens on the 15th of August, but no matter when you get there, the straight couple that lives there will definitely cook for you and show you around.
Should you be so lucky to find yourself on this beautiful island next summer you will see that time literally does stand still, and you will be amazed at how much you can do in one day.
Here is an example:
10:00 am. Destination Maganitis, Seychelles beach. Walking down for 15 minutes on a path that leads to a beach of serene, crystal blue waters, with fine sand mostly shaded by a cave.
1:00 pm. Destination Saint George beach, Drakano and Iero beach. Driving in the road towards Faros. Think west coast highway, but a million times better. On one side is like you are in a western film, on the other you can view the infinite blue Aegean ocean, with the back drop of mountainous islands, as far as the eye can see. You arrive in Drakano and you park your car, to walk to Saint George beach. Drakano, is a fortress, that was recently restored, and was built by Demetrius I of Macedon, also known as the Conquering emperor, in the Hellenistic period. In its surroundings there was a temple of Dionysus, the God of wine and celebration, since Dionysus was born there, and especially in Iero beach. A friend who had a lucky strike reminisces exquisite music echoing from the inside of the fortress, enchanted, they entered the fortress to view the saxophone player, that filled the air and the earth with the most lovely sounds. Then there is the revelation of these two amazing beaches, Saint George, and the Iero, than means sacred, for a reason. The calmness and the serenity of these two places are causing incredible emotions, one can say with certainty that you can feel the sacredness of the land.
After a visit to any Taverna, I can vouch for all of them, and a visit to Morpheus land for a siesta, with of course the help of the chirp of cicadas, a day in the life should end with a good night swim in Therma village, to experience the absolute zen in the cave of the hot springs. There, one can also find the unusual suspects, women singing polyphonic traditional songs under the moon. Will you wonder whether you are dreaming or not, bet your bottom euro that you will.
Ikaria has a magic so special and every turn in this island leads to roads of beauty. One time of visiting simply could not be enough. The immense sense of relaxing is going to take you by surprise. You will feel that you belong there or that you want to belong there. You will remember the point of life. This primitive feeling, that is imprinted in each and everyone’s DNA, of taking life easy, will be restored, and you will call someone to tell them to remind you that you must not forget what you have just discovered, living and loving the present of every day. The sentence “we will see” will become your most usual sentence during a day, for there is absolutely no plan. Next summer, make sure you treat yourselves, visit the land of Icarus and Dionysus, visit the paradise where time is but a theory.

Because I have been traveling around the world for decades I know the importance of living in a place and feel as home. This is the reason I really love Airbnb and its philosophy. I am a French and history Teacher and I was leaving for years in Canada where I did my Masters Degree in UFT. I also speak fluently English and Italian. I am a very social person and I like making people's life easy.
