It is amphitheatrically built facing the northeast and the east coast of the island. The original architecture of the village is a pure sample of the traditional Santorinian architecture.
The old complex of four houses was reconstructed and transformed, from the bearing structure, into a luxurious villas’ complex with private spacious patios and pools, fully harmonized with the natural environment and the beautiful view of the Aegean Sea. Every villa has two bedrooms with private bathroom and can accommodate up to 5 people.

Each villa is inspired by the color palette of a season, the romantic spring, the vivid and fresh summer, the ethnic autumn and the contemporary winter.

The traditional architecture combined with the principles of modern design, the graceful architecture of Cyclades completed with notes of the Arabia and East creating multidimensional spaces with distinct personality.
