The Kythira Traditional Houses are found in the village of Aroniadika, a key location and main crossroads at the heart of the island. The village is an ideal base from which to start discovering all the beauties of Kythira. The houses are located 5 km from the airport, 15 km from the port of Diakofti, 15 km from Chora (the main village of the island), 4,5 km from the village Potamos (large village and commercial center) and 8,5 km from the closest beach.
The land where the complex of these Traditionals Houses are found extends over half an acre, complete with a BBQ pit, flowers, herbs and a vegetable garden.
The Traditional House complex is made up of three separate dwellings:
Traditional House I, a two storey house (110 sq.m.), Traditional House II (80 sq.m.) and Traditional House III (60 sq.m.) single level. The Cottage (60 sq.m.), a restored traditional home situated close to the complex, in the village of Aroniadika, is also for rent.
The owner built these Traditional Houses as if she were building her own home. To realize her vision, she collaborated with the talented Kithiran contractor and a noted Athenian interior designer combining traditional architecture with eco-friendly bioclimatic functionality (thick stone walls, arches, dry stone walls, stone pathways), with modern, minimalist interior design (furniture from well known design houses such as VITRA, B&B Italia, Moooi etc.). Quality amenities and services, such as daily housekeeping, soft linen, anatomic mattresses etc. are all part of the high quality service offered making sure you will experience all the comforts of home, while enjoying the amenities of a design hotel of unique character, ambiance and style.
Kythira Traditional House III is a 60 sq.m. house that can accomodate 2-4 people and consists of a bedroom with ceiling fan, shower bathroom, open plan living room/kitchen, two built-in single beds in the living room area and a shaded veranda complete with garden furniture.
