The house is in the heart of "chora", or old town, in a quiet shaded spot a few steps up a winding pedestrian alley from the main centre with its cafes, bars, restaurants, shops. It is a perfect place to enjoy traditional Skyrian life. The house is over 300 years old. It has been in the family for generations and has been recently carefully renovated to keep the original style, such as the high wood beam ceiling, and to be practical, uncluttered and luxurious. A stylish "mouse hole" retreat.
