  • Although I have seen loads of pictures of this building and have waited ten years for an opportunity to visit it - I was still impressed by the sheer beauty of the place, the building, the atmosphere....  more »

  • The house is currently closed for renovation and, according to the website for the Benaki, which manages the site, it is due to reopen Summer 2019. A few important things to note for your visit: - the house is not in Kydamili, it's in Kalamitsi, a few minutes and several turns of the road south of Kydamili. - the turning for the house is on the west side of the coast road, on a bend, and is almost impossible to see until you are on top of it as it is both unmarked and very steeply sloping. Use this coordinate: 36.879339, 22.243963 - park on the road, below the house, that leads to the beach. On the right is safest. - we walked on the beach around to the cove below the house and went for a swim where Paddy used to, which was a magical experience. An abandoned car lies across the steps up to the house, which is pretty grim. Let's hope that gets sorted. Looking forward to visiting when it's open and re-reviewing.
  • Closed at the moment while it is being renovated/developed. I think scheduled to reopen in 2020.
