Back in time to 1998 and before Internet and digital photographs.. the new owners of this ruined stone house received drawings, suggestions and advice via Fax and the postal system! But a beautiful renovated 2-storey house emerged with an entry courtyard, cistern, storage and a bridge connecting two of the rooms in order to have two terraces.
The original stone cistern became part of the house with a flat roof externally, but retaining the arched ceiling. Excavations created space for a cess pit. Parts of walls were re-built, other reinforced. Obviously the house needed totally new electrical and plumbing systems. Wooden doors, window frames and shutters were all hand made as well as wooden ceilings. Reed pergolas let in the light to the terraces. Terracotta floor tiles add to the traditional feel of the house.
One of the owners is an artist and the house itself is truly a work of art.
