A passionate collector of greek art, a bon viveur, visits Santorini in the early '80s. The view, the energy, are riveting. A great friend finds two neighbouring plots of land, perfect but in absolute ruin. Passion, commitment and an inspired architect turn them into a private hideaway, a personal paradise, that lasts for years and years.
Lazy lunches under the pergola, sunsets at the belvedere, solitary reading in the living room, basil plants, pool parties, roaming black cats, friends coming, going and staying, plants being watered to the sound of opera at twilight, misty winter nights by the fireplace, loud conversations, music, and endless games of tavli, have all left their mark and given this place an energy of its own, captivating and inspiring.
