We decided on a whim to return to the peaceful island of Kea. On our last visit 4 years ago we stayed at red tractor farm and loved it. We tried booking in advance online but all the websites said it was full. As it is only a few minutes from Korissia the port, we dropped in hoping they might have a cancellation only to find to our surprise that only one cottage was occupied ! So,happily, we had a peaceful and enjoyable five days. A word of warning, if you would like to enqire about booking go directly to the Red Tractor website, all the websites stated that they were full for some strange reason.. The bedding is very comfortable, mosquito screens on all the windows and doors so, in the spring, you can wake to the perfume of jasmine, honeysuckle lavander and roses... a cleaner comes every day and changes sheets and towels every 3 days. Swimming towels are provided. We spent hours sitting on our balcony overlooking the olive grove and vineyard reading and writing and enjoying the peace and quiet. There is a lovely little bay with azure clear water and a small beach within walking distance, there is also a very good taverna there, right at the waters edge. Kostis the owner looked after our every need...if you are interested in gardens, speak to him, he is a font of knowledge ! There are lots of tavernas in the harbour and two bakeries, a butchers and a supermarket. Fish you can buy directly from the fishing boats when they come in, in the mornings. Red tractor farm really is a haven and comes highly recommended.

My husband, step-daughters (18 and 20 years of age) and I felt "on vacation" and at ease at Red Tractor Farm almost immediately during our stay March 11 - 18, 2019. Honeysuckle and rosemary scents in the air, sky and vineyard views, wildflowers all over, cozy beds, hot showers and a bottle of Red Tractor Farm wine (red of course) welcomed us to Kea. So did our host who loves his home and knows details about the archaeology of the island. Kostis suggested hikes, points of interest and restaurants. He also met us at the ferry making our transition to Kea and car rental quick and easy. For us the Stone Cottage was perfect. The loft space separate enough for our grown-up children and the space below a wonderful nook for my husband and me. Beds were gratefully VERY comfortable. Roomy living area with a fireplace, plenty of dry wood, balcony for dinners together during sunsets. Kitchen is functional and we appreciated the chance to make our own meals and pack lunches for hiking a few times during our week long stay. The area is quiet and walking distance to the small port town of Korissia (grocery store, ferry, restaurants, beaches, car rental.)

The two-storey cottages are located in an unusually green backdrop of a variety of trees and bushes in a big farm away from the hustle of the main road but close enough to reach the beach in less than 5 minutes and the harbour with its shops and restaurants in less than 15 minutes on foot. Our room was in the Vineyard Cottage and consisted of the basics. Decoration was inexistent, but bedroom was spacious and comfortable (though one bed was jammed in the corner and had no nightstand), bathroom with shower was functional, and there was also a sort of kitchenette with a sink, an electric kettle, plates and cutlery at the room entrance. Only drawback: fridge was so noisy we had to unplug it every night before going to bed. Every room has a private shaded terrace with a sturdy table, chairs and a stone bench, the ideal place to have breakfast, an afternoon coffee or an evening drink or just sit, read, relax and contemplate the landscape. WiFi is free but doesn't work flawlessly. Connection was problematic, especially in the afternoons. The products sold at the entrance are mainly the unique and yummy acorn cookies made by the owners, ointment made of olive oil and St. John's wort, home made marmalades, pickled caper leaves etc. They might not be cheap, but still, they show involvement and respect towards the local economy, which sadly seems to be a rarity on the island these days. P.S. If you have a pet, then this is the best place imaginable. The owners themselves have two dogs and welcome any friendly pet to run around in their estate provided it doesn't disturb other guests.

I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to stay at Kostis and Marcy's Red Tractor Farm. I am still amazed by the hospitality and generous wealth of Kea/Cyclades knowledge and travel tips that Kostis and Marcy shared. The rooms are perfect for a solo traveler, couple or family. They are cool, clean and the beds are so comfortable. You can make a nice home for yourself for as long as you are staying there. Kostis knows the ins and outs of Kea and can direct perfectly to beaches that will blow your mind, the best lamb gyro I had in Greece, and he has great travel advice to give you on nearby islands. The location is perfect, fabulous beaches and restaurants are all within walking distance. Marcy and Kostis are kind and thoughtful, I felt so well taken care of. THANK YOU. I will be back soon I have sadly run out of chocolate chip acorn flour cookies.
