Lemonia house is a big and spacious village house that was known for its lemon tree that was standing in the courtyard.
Coming through the magnificent gate, you enter the spacious courtyard with the beautiful chochlakia (mosaic pebbles) on the floor. The courtyard provides complete privacy and behind the high walls, it is like you are in no mans land. The biggest part of the courtyard is covered with a water proof wooden pergola for maximum shade in the summer. But of course the sun lovers will go up on the roof terrace where we have built a beautiful lounge, with pergola and sun loungers are standing there for sun bathing in private. The view on one side is great as it looks out over a big garden full with chickens: to emphasize the rural feeling of it all. The other side of the view is over the village. In the courtyard there is a second toilet with wash basin.
As one stands in the courtyard, one can enter the house from the living room and from the well sized kitchen. The kitchen has all the necessary equipment to make a luxurious holiday. The ceiling of the whole house has the big old beams, with the small pieces of wood under it, which makes it looking like a real old country cottage, and gives a cozy effect. In the kitchen in the old days there was always a patara (high raised separated wooden platform) on which a mattress was placed. We left it authentic and decided to place a mattress as well on this pataras, and we have placed curtains in front of it for maximum privacy. The kitchen is about 8 meters long, so it is not like you are placed in the middle of the kitchen whilst sleeping here.
From the kitchen one gets into another sleeping room which has a double bed in it. From this bedroom one gets into the big bathroom with a separate bath and separate shower, toilet and washing basin, as well as having the washing machine. Also from this bedroom one gets into the huge living room with its big arch and mosaic pebbles on the floor. And as this house is the most authentic of all houses, it has the pataras (high raised platforms on both sides of the arch reachable through 2 separate stairs, and each having a single bed placed on them); It has the old wooden beams on the ceiling with small pieces of wood under it and it has the beautiful mosaic pebbles on the floor. The room has a roof light that we made in order to have enough light in the room, as it is high and deep. There is a dining area and a cozy lounging area in the living room, and you are sure to spend some lovely evenings in and out of the house and on your roof terrace.
If you wish to have a straight house and more in accordance with the houses in your own country, then this may not be the best house for you as it is a real Greek style house, with which we left all features authentic, of course with modern amenities like dishwasher, internet, washing machine etcetera, but the walls, the ceilings, the woodworks, the locations for the beds etc. have been left intact. Furthermore, just like we said in the Myrtia house: if you are looking for an absolute isolated house where you will meet nobody in the street in front of you, then don’t choose this house. The neighborhood is the best one that I have ever lived in: the women outside sit on small chairs, children play outside, the granny’s chat in the evening (they like naughty talks a lot), they drink their wine or their souma, or will give you a mezes, as they are usually very fond of our renters, and if you wish to have a small talk, then please do: they always welcome it, and if not, no problem.
