The owners of these old stone built houses have admiration and respect for their heritage, thus the need to revive and preserve the past. Acceding to the requirements of present times, these houses have been renovated and modernized. Realistically, we believe that it is rather difficult to make a fortune by renting these old houses. It is only therefore an expression of our affection for the preservation of old times, a small token of our debt to the history of the island
