The house itself is a delight. Stone built, mixing shapes and natural materials to create the best out of the location and a feeling of bright understated luxury.

The Maenad’s Springs are located in the traditional settlement of Menites, surrounded by walnut and plane trees.
The water springs from the mouths of marble lions, in the small shady square with the taverns and cafes.
The name of the village comes from the Maenads the nymphs of god Dionysus, but the historian Dimitrios Paschalis claims that the name Manites comes from the word “amoenitas”, meaning a cute, pleasant place.
Whatever it is, Menites is one of the most beautiful, lush Andros villages. They are very close to Chora. From the village begins the valley of Messaria that ends up at the beach of Neimporio. The springs of Maenads are located under the sanctuary of Panagia Koumoulos.
Many claim that the church is built on the site of an ancient temple. The springs are watering many estates of Menites and Messaria and they end up to Messa Chorio in Livadia! They legend says, are the ancient springs of the temple of Dionysus. Next to Koumoulos is the spring of “Fountana”, (fontana: spring, fountain) very close to the spring of Molivaria, the spring of Zanakis (Ano Menites), Koumaros and others. Until the war and later many mills and water mills were operating.
