Traditional Cycladic Architecture
The design of Petra Holiday Village aimed to have the least possible intervention in the natural landscape as possible. Nikos, engineer and his wife Aspasia, architect, sought to create a holiday housing settlement in absolute harmony with the Ios environment. Parts of the village have since been renovated by their daughters, Ioanna & Maria, whom are both architects.
The layout of the houses was designed so that each terrace and open space is protected from wind. Respecting the local Cycladic architectural style of simple and minimal aesthetics, the houses were built with natural local materials: local stone and wood.
The houses are bright inside yet the layout of windows and doors are designed specifically for ventilation and protection from the sun. As the windows let the daylight in, they provide for coolness during summer nights. The thick walls help maintain room temperature. Take a look!
Guests will roam the village patios, stony walkways and garden of olive trees, eucalyptus, myoporum, vines, fig, rosemary, bougainvillea, cedar, prickly pear, geranium, acacia and pistacia plants.
Come and visit for an authentic Greek experience!
