The name says it all – only the eye and experience of a talented architect could create a house worthy of such a setting. Evreti is an exquisitely beautiful area and this charming house, a fusion of natural materials that echoes the simple symmetry of the nearby chapel, has become a part of the landscape rather than dominating it.
Constructed of cool stone, with a high vaulted ceiling, open-plan living area and a pale colour scheme provides the tranquillity that the house exudes. Downstairs, French windows open on to stone terraces that in turn lead to the swimming pool just below. The house is located four hundred metres down an unmade track, whilst there is no sea view a mere three minute walk will take you down a shady, gently sloping path, bringing you to a small cove with a beach and a view of Ithaka that takes the breath away. When the urge strikes for some good food and wine accompanied by that endlessly fascinating pastime of people-watching, then Fiskardo is not far away at all.
