Kamares Houses

In Kamares, the buildings and their decoration are harmoniously combined with the both the anthropogenic and natural environments of the area.

Stone, slabs, marble, lime, earth from the gorge, ochre and indigo, Byzantine tiles, cypress and olive wood are the natural materials of the island that were used for the construction and equipment of Kamares by local craftsmen, who resurrected old designs and techniques. Each dwelling disposes of one or more private open-air areas with a breathtaking view. Kamares offer comfortable apartments with single-bed or two-bed rooms, as well as villas with large sitting rooms and fully equipped kitchens, fireplaces, modern bathrooms (some of which tiled with hand-made floor tiles, others painted by hand), with natural lighting, ventilation and a wonderful view. Natural air conditioning is secured by the building configuration and orientation (thick stone walls, double glazing, meticulously insulated roofs and windows installed in such a wise way as to let the wonderful view in).

Innovations: in Kamares, the bathrooms and kitchens all look out onto the landscape. In Kamares, the walls breathe and the furniture smells of cypress wood.

The furniture in Kamares was designed by Roula according to the patterns of the publications of the Folklore Museum of Vorron, and made by local craftsmen of cypress wood coming from Kostas’s family cypress woodland and of other materials like marble and iron artfully forged by Kostas.
