In the old days at Cyclades Islands, this particular type of accommodation used to be the cellar of the house where the family stored its food, olive oil, and wine. It was also there, in a circular, stone-built cistern, the grape press ("patitiri"), where family members would stomp their grape harvest to make wine. The building’s old stone grape press was retained; and when integrated to our hotel, it was converted with a number of handmade wooden structures into an elevated, single bed platform.
The Grape Press [Paleo Patitiri/Paleó Patitíri] (42 m2) has a uniform space serving as a bedroom, with a built, double-bed platform on one side and a built, single-bed platform on the other. The same uniform space corresponds to a sitting-dining room arrangement, a fully-equipped built-in kitchen, and a bathroom that includes a shower and the necessary accessories and toiletries. The Grape Press accommodation becomes complete with a traditional Cycladic inner courtyard that is partly covered (9.5 m2) and partly open-air (18 m2).Facilities & Services
