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