The island of Andros is also known as Micra Anglia, literally meaning Little England in Greek, an affectionate sobriquet it earned due to its strong naval and merchant shipping force in the late 19th to the early 20th century.
During that prosperous time, the Chora of Andros flourished, and aristocratic mansions with a majestic European air were constructed. Marble, stone and wood intertwined in intricate detail and artistic inspiration are at the foundation of the era’s typical style. Beyond that, the affluence of the time is evident in the entire Andros Chora; imposing churches, stately municipal buildings and alleys that bring to mind nostalgic postcards.
Today, the mansion where Micra Anglia Boutique Hotel is housed is a beloved historical landmark of Andros, maintaining all its outlandish allure and the romantic aura of its glorious past, at the same time as offering upgraded accommodation in an elegant and sophisticated space. The hotel was designed bearing in mind the history of the building, its outstanding architecture and every modern convenience that today’s travellers require for a transcending experience, a link between modern day and the idyllic Andros of the past.
