On the hillside high above the surf, these arty cube houses built of local stone are architectural symphonies of wood-beamed ceilings, widescreen views from balconies, chic rustic furniture, urns mounted on walls, and stone floors. Every villa is individual and has a fully equipped kitchenette.
There's even a well-kitted-out gym to work off all those rabbit stews and Greek salads. Owner Elias Pagianidis is a former Mr Greece bodybuilder and the driving force behind marking the walking trails in area. He and his wife Stella are experts on trekking and local ecology.
