About the neighbourhood
The cottage was a family house, initially built in the 30s and renovated in the 90s, as a vacation home. Back in the time, the ground floor was used to keep the animals and after the family moved in, it was used as storage area for goods. The upper floor was used for eating and sleeping. For this reason, the fireplace was always on the upper floor, to maintain heating and for cooking purposes. The cottage is situated next to the edge of one of the most picturesque little gorges, named Avra, and it is one of the most interesting trekking/hiking routes in the area. Also, 15mins drive from the house, lies one of the biggest and most impressive Oak tree forests in Greece, which according to Greek mythology.
