The restoration of a 1700’s house and stables situated in a historical village, for a retired in Greece senior French couple.
A house on a 300 y.o property., located in a small village with a slowly declining population and an increasingly abandoned historical area, close to Karystos, in Evia island. What makes this project so important for me, is the gained knowledge from local craftsmen and a true frendship with owners.
