Oikia Karapanou
     
 

Oikia Karapanou

Oikia, comes from the Greek word which means both "house" and "home". It is above all, a house with a soul. It is somehow the 'essence' of a house, surrounded by an enchanted garden. Nothing in it is formal, nothing is standardised. Oikia Karapanou is not an hotel, neither is it a seminar 'factory'. It is a real house. Simple, spacious, poetic, refined. A place where guests often tell us that they feel as if they have, finally, come home.

The space is organised as follows:

Bedrooms:
The house can host up to 20 people. There are 7 twinbed rooms (one with a double bed), one three-bed room, and one single. If there is a need for extra beds, 2 camp beds can be added. For larger groups, there is space for tents in the garden, and the possibility to rent additional rooms at a nearby guesthouse.

Bathrooms:
There are 5 bathrooms in the house. One of them is ensuite to one of the bedrooms. The other 4 are shared. There are also 2 outdoor showers in the garden.

For work:
The upper floor of the house contains a bright and spacious 40 square-meter hall, surrounded by windows facing in all directions, which leads out onto two big terraces facing east and west. If a larger space is needed, there is a flat outdoor area of 300 square meters in front of the house, shady and totally private. There is also the old 13 meterwide threshing floor, with its beautiful views of the sea and islands.

And for free time:
The living-room (with great-grandmother's piano!); various balconies and terraces; and, of course the spacious and magical garden. The nearest beach is very close, around 300 meters away on foot.
