Andros: What area should we stay in?

We'll arrive to the island in June for a week.

We plan to travel around the island by car and also combine hiking.

Is it better to be in one place for the whole week or is it better to change location on the island?

What area should we stay in?

Thanks.

I'd suggest you to choose the area of Batsí or nearby (Agios Petros , Kypri) since is located in a very strategic position to explore the whole Island.

Chora (Andros Town), although very nice Town, might not be a very central point to have a base.

For 1 week only, I'd stay in the same Place.

We have just spent 4 nights at Andros Hora and thought it had a much more Greek feel about it than Batsi or Gavrio. If you like touristic, stay on the west coast, if you like more soul, stay on the east coast. For a week, then it is not so far from one side to the other (45 min drive), you can do both.

I think you have two options Batsi or Chora. June will still be low-season but locals will be gearing up for tourist so things should be coming to life. Batsi is a lovely small beach village, nice waterfront with shops,markets and tavernas but Chora is larger, has more services and options for things to do.

You could split your time between the two with 3 in Batsi and 4 in Chora. The island is not that big so it would be easy to get around even if you base yourself in just one location.
