In the beautiful island of Kythira (Cerigo), in the medieval traditional village of Pitsinades lies the summer house to rent “Pulani”. The house is a detached home with a big yard, which includes bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom.
The house was build about 100 years ago and was renovated in 2007 to its current form. It was originally used as a residence as well as a winepress. In the living room one can still see the "pulani", the hole where the stum was poured from the "lanos", the space where the grapes were pressed. It is situated at the east side of the village near the churches of Panagia Tsigkouriotissa and Saint Athanasios.
The bedroom is the biggest room of the house. It's made of stone according to traditional architecture and it is a dome (white stone arch) with a skylight to allow natural light to enter the room.
The room has a double bed and a trifoliate closet. There is also a single sofa-bed for the accommodation of a fifth guest.
The living room was the winepress in the original use of the house. In its original arrangement the room contained a "lano" (winepress) which was defined by a dwarf wall of about 1 meter at the right side of the room. In the center of the room you can still see the "pulani". The room in made of stone.
The room is air-conditioned and contains one double sofa-bed while a TV-set and a small book collection are available.
The kitchen is the most recent addition to the house. It was built approximately 10 years ago and has a wooden roof with tiles.
The kitchen is fully equipped with kitchenware and appliances.
The yard is spacious, partially covered by a trellis with creeper plants which cast their shadow so as to keep it cool during the day.
The house also contains a washing machine as well as an iron with an iron board. For guests with car, a parking space has been reserved.
Born in Athens in 1979 by islanders who met there. Been living in Athens since then. Being a physicist one could not escape the stereotype of being a Sci-Fi fan, a card game fan and a gadgeteer.
My purpose is to offer my guests comfortable accommodation while at the same time staying out of their way so that they can enjoy their stay.
