In the place of the main building there was a two-floor building of the 19th century, in typical Macedonian Architecture, with the particular morphological and typological elements of the region. A titanic effort was made to be restored, but because of its intense deterioration and its perishable materials, it was decided that most of the building had to be demolished and rebuilt it with modern materials, incorporated in a completely traditional wrapping.
The use of stone, timber and Kourasanit (traditional material for masonry) were mixed with love, knowledge and mainly taste, as it is obvious in each detail of the building, where most of the wood construction, were hand crafted by the householder an Architect Engineer.

Capri offers some of the most sensual scenery and indulgent atmosphere in the Mediterranean. It is a magical island and one that changes if you stay the night there; once the day trippers have gone back to Naples and Sorrento and the sun sets over Ischia on the far side of the bay, the island reveals a more delicate, more contemplative side. You have the run of restaurants, cafés and bars, you can blend with the locals or do your own thing and dine very, very well and simply soak up the beautiful Mediterranean evenings.
In the daytime you can relax by the pool, indulge in the spa centre pop down the path to the beach. You could hire a boat and explore the island’s hidden coves (the southern side is the quietest and you can see the bottom through the clear green waters, even 20 metres deep). Those keen on history may want to walk up to Villa Jovis where Tiberius indulged in his perversions. More peaceful now, the villa is still impressive despite being left to the elements with very little protection. It is on one of the highest points of the island and, from the top of very sheer cliffs, you can see across to Naples, Vesuvius and south, beyond Paestum to the Cilento, close to the border with Basilicata.

Vessa is a hilly village on the island of Chios and belongs to the Municipality of the Mastic villages. It is situated 19kms southwest of Chios town (distance by road) in a valley which probably explains the name “Vessa” which, according to the poet Homer, means valley, and it is at an altitude of 180 metres. It is a picturesque village with narrow alleyways and traditional architecture. It is an old, medieval settlement, a typical fortress or “castle-village” and forms part of the mastic villages. These villages were built between the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries by Genoese noblemen. Built in a row, the houses were joined by stone arches and formed the walls of the village. These :castle-villages” have very few entrances and a lot of churches. The Saint Dimitris Cathedral is particularly worth visiting.. The main occupation of the locals is the cultivation of mastic and olives. In the summer, the village comes to life and is full of both locals and visitors who can enjoy a meal or a drink in the village square at one of the two typical Greek cafes where the locals gather. The central position of the village gives visitors the opportunity to move around the island easily and visit the most beautiful beaches in the west of the island in a very short time.
