This lovely house is located on the Greek island of Sifnos. The dry stone cottage is overlooking terraced hills and is set in the middle of olive trees. After spending his summers in Greece for years, owner Aix decided to renovate this more than a century old home and use it as a family holiday home
This kitchen is simple but oozes rustic charm.
The sofa is made of a masonry bench covered with a sheet of linen and cushions made from tea towels. Furniture and objects are from flea markets and local bazaars. And as is tradition, each year the walls are whitewashed to protect the house from heat while flooding it with light.
The original layout was preserved, with its small rooms arranged around a garden courtyard that allows everyone to move freely and live at their own pace.
