Casa Antica is a unique example of a holiday house that combines both traditional Mani and modern architecture. Built in 19th century and reconstructed in 2012, this holiday house speaks of history and art. Casa Antica is located in a picturesque settlement next to a miniature Byzantine church.
Both the preservation of the existing stone shell of the house and the clear differentiation of the new integrated constructions-interventions, have been the guiding principles in designing this project. Casa Antica welcomes with old wooden gate opening to the courtyard where external staircase connects it to the top level. A daily living space with a living room, a dining area and a kitchen is located on the top level. The outdoor terrace called "liakoto" offers beautiful views to the sea and the settlement. The Master Bedroom with en suite bathroom is located on the middle level and there are further two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor. Lightweight steel stairs, massive stone walls and visual contact between the different levels are unique characteristics of this holiday house.
Casa Antica was awarded as the best built project in Greece in years 2010-2012.
