The Rooster is an unusual, but seductive mix of rustic simplicity and cool sophistication. In the heart of the Cyclades, on the rural island of Antiparos, it sits in thirty acres of rugged landscape, sloping down to the crescent beach of Livadia. This a destination for those after unadulterated escapism. It is an oasis, where the architecture blends into the landscape, artfully disguising the luxury inside, oozing a sense of calm and harmony. Guests stay in one of a collection of private houses, set far apart from the others, with views over the hills and the Aegean, looked after by a dedicated team of enthusiastic and incredibly helpful staff. Reconnect with your surroundings and nature, and return home sunkissed and happy. 

Accommodation

Dotted around the rocky landscape, some on the hill and others closer to the beach, 16 private houses offer guests peaceful sanctuary. They all have large and airy open plan living areas that open out directly onto wide terraces and views out to sea. They’re all built out of local stone and are just one storey, thus leaving the landscape seemingly untouched. Each one has a private pool and gardens full of native plants, outdoor showers and shady terraces. The interiors are sleek and sophisticated – polished concrete walls and floors, with wood and raffia detail, whilst the exteriors embrace the wild surroundings. Landscape Camo houses are exactly that – they blend into the land – and have views of the surrounding hills. They can sleep two adults and a child. On the hillside, with glimpses of the sea, the Bush & Hill Houses are intimate and cosy. For an unfettered view of the sea, go for the Bush & Beach Portraits, where the pool and garden appear to be an extension of the dunes and beach. The Wilderness Valley houses offer total seclusion, making them ideal if you really want to get away from it all. The larger As Above So Below houses sleep up to six guests, with two en suite master bedrooms and a good sized pool, with views of the landscape. Whilst the even larger Haven of Tranquility houses look out across the dunes over the Aegean. Up by the farm, set away from all the other houses, is the Farmhouse, an exceptionally styled three bedroomed retreat, with ample outdoor space for lounging and dining, and a private pool. It’s surrounded by The Rooster’s vegetable garden and guests staying here get the chance to spend time with the farmer and the chefs, exploring the flavours and picking ingredients for their own kitchen. You also have the option of a private chef here.

Restaurants

Each and every ingredient either comes from local fishermen and farmers, or The Rooster’s own organic gardens and farm, where fruit and vegetables are picked daily. Dining here is all about reconnecting with nature and enjoying the Mediterranean culinary lifestyle. The restaurant, with its intimate interior and fairy light festooned terrace, serves exceptional dishes and flavours, where the chef pairs food in unlikely but delicious ways. Breakfasts are an indulgence, and light snacks can be ordered all day. Before dinner, watch the sun go down over the Aegean, and listen to the cicadas, with a glass of something chilled, at the bar.

Children

Tucked far away from other guests, families enjoy vast swathes of space and freedom. It’s a short (and easy) walk to the beach for a swim and a picnic and each house has its own pool. There are no TVs in the houses – this is a place to be outside with nature, with none of the trappings of modern life.

Activities

The unspoiled and barely touched island of Antiparos is steeped in history and is well worth exploring. You’ll find many a quiet beach – all far from the madding crowd and perfect for spending a morning or afternoon. Around the harbour, there are tavernas and boutiques, but the main beauty here is the peace and wide open spaces. Paddle board, kayak or windsurf around the bay and spend the afternoon by your private pool and a book. The Rooster has a sanctuary of a Spa, the evocatively named House of Healing, with a bewildering amount of fabulous treatments and therapies – so if you’re not relaxed when you go in, you definitely will be when you come out.

Sustainability

From blending in with the landscape, to its organic farm, nature is at The Rooster’s core. With produce coming from the farm or from local suppliers, the carbon footprint is minimal. The Rooster also uses eco-friendly products.
