The “Meltemi” house is a very old house in the center of the village of Naoussa. The ground floor was a lime paint factory and the whole village was whitewashed each year by the owner of the house. Later in the 1970s, two avant-garde women turned the house into a bar. It was named “Meltemi” meaning mistral in Greek because Naoussa is located in the north of the island and swept by the gentle breeze of the “Meltemi” in August.
The years have passed and the bar after having been transformed into an art gallery has become a home again.
We have kept the original features of the old house, preserved the ark and the stone walls in the ground floor that we have transformed into a living room and central heart of the house. The conversion of the terrace gives a new dimension to this old building, more contemporary, and allows visitors to contemplate the village at 360 °. The house is located ideally in the village, in a typical neighborhood, and allows visitors to live like the inhabitant of Naoussa.
The house consists of a living room, a dining room and a bath room on the ground floor. Three bedrooms and a bath room on the first floor (two bedrooms with a double bed each and a bedroom with two single beds). A small wooden staircase leads to the terrace with its magnificent view of Naoussa Bay!
You will appreciate the traditional and the contemporary character of the house at the same time. Traditional, with its magnificent stone arch supporting the floor above, as was done at the time in Paros. With its floor dressed in large gray and green slabs cut by hand. Its old fireplace that used to be a kitchen. Its bathrooms that are entirely covered with traditional natural plaster, the “Tsimentokonia”, a kind of polished concrete of the islands, very resistant, made from a mix of sea sand and white cement. And contemporary at the same time, with its new terrace with a magnificent view of the whole village of Naoussa and its bay. As well as all the equipment that makes every day’s life easier, like a washing machine, a dishwasher, an internet Wi-Fi connexion , an espresso machine etc.
In the “Meltemi” house you will feel somewhere else because of its traditional “Cycladic” architecture and you will feel completely comfortable in its functional areas, redesigned and adapted, with all the necessary equipment for everyday life. We wish you a pleasant stay !
