The owners of these old stone built villas have admiration and respect for their heritage, thus the need to revive and preserve the past. Acceding to the requirements of present times, these houses have been renovated and modernized. Realistically, we believe that it is rather difficult to make a fortune by renting these old villas. It is only therefore an expression of our affection for the preservation of old times, a small token of our debt to the history of the island and to preserve our identity from the concrete monstrosities, the new buildings of today, constructed with little taste or respect for the environment. Nowadays the thinking, living creatures are returning to nature and to their roots. The Stone House you are staying in is our recognition of our Ancestors and paying our respects for the World they have made and we are now able to enjoy.
