This historic building was designed as a private home in the late 19th century. During World-War II it served as the Headquarters of the German troops on the island due to the spectacular view over the whole island. Then it became a school and the home of the local priest before we - diaspora greeks - acquired it in 2003.
Since then, we run this little jewel with respect to its history and consciously preserve the original structure, floors and materials. Hence, we refrained from a too invasive refurbishment. For example, there is not air conditioning - but no worries, the massive walls keep the heat effectively outside during the summer.
Today, the house is only rented for a few weeks per years when the owners are not using it themselves or for friends.
