Styra is a fishing village and a favourite holiday resort for Athenians and foreign visitors on the Island of Evia – the second biggest island in Greece.
Styra is located close to Athens, at the most narrow part between the island and the mainland. This unspoiled corner of Greece has an idyllic Mediterranean landscape combining mountains and sea, countless beaches, unrivaled sunsets and is blessed with a very pleasant climate during the whole year.
Styra can be reached either by ferryboat from the tiny harbor of Agia Marina, or by the bridge from Chalkida. The easiest way, if you are not coming from the northern part of Greece, is to take the ferry from Agia Marina. The litle harbour of Agia Marina is located 35 km away from the Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport of Athens, with several ferry boat routes
Actually there are two cities (villages), Nea (New) Styra and Ano (Up) Styra. The ferry reaches Nea Styra, a more modern tourist area with beautiful sunsets, beaches, hotels, cafes, shops, and bars. Ano Styra is a picturesque, virgin, genuine, untouched village, ideal for peaceful, relaxing, holidays.
The House of Prince is located in Ano Styra, just 200m before the square of the village.
