Melanopetra is a 1850 two-storey stone residence built into the core of the beautiful preserved traditional village of Emporios in Nisyros island, turned into a stunning atmospheric villa of two luxury apartments. Lovingly restored by the owner and architect Anna, it combines modern minimalistic design with the eternal aesthetics of local architecture to create a harmonic whole with high standard services in a warm manner that reflects traditional hospitality. The villa delivers unpretentious style and homely comfort, in a context that retains the distinctiveness of the authentic. Its name is inspired from the main building material, the local black stone, further enhancing its character. Emerging from the rocky volcanic landscape the villa is a small paradise in itself, exuding subtle luxury, eternal elegance and authentic ambiance. Its privileged location in a truly original environment with the breathtaking view of the Aegean sea and the volcanic aura, create a truly unique atmosphere around the villa, seemingly untouched by time. The emanating serenity and the offering warm hospitality contribute to its simple charm, in a landscape of natural Aegean Sea beauty.
I am the owner and architect of Melanopetra with master in restoration of Historic buildings. I have lived in this island for some years working as an architect and i have also awarded a Europa Nostra Prize for the restoration of the ancient fortification of Acropolis in Nisyros, dated back to 5th c. B.C. Why This Property? . My love for this vibrant island forced me to buy and restore this unique property with great care in order to share it with guests offering a warm hospitality. The restoration project was implemented through European co-financing as a contribution to the sustainable development of the island. Nisyros is an island that has preserved an authentic atmosphere seemingly untouched by time and crass commercialization and offers a rare experience to eclectis guests, and me.
Emporios is a picturesque preserved traditional village on the rim of the caldera situated at an altitude of about 400m, overlooking the Aegean Sea and Volcano. It was mostly abandoned and many houses are in ruins, but recently began to revive and turn into an alternative destination for artistic and sophisticated public. Emporios, strategically located in the middle of Nisyros between the capital - port of Nisyros and Nikia – Volcano, is the perfect base for exploring the island. It is almost equidistant from most important destinations and sights: 8-9km far from the port, Mandraki Village, Palloi seaside village and the beaches, 4km from Nikia Village and 2km from volcano caldera. In every corner of the island, you can discover incredible monuments and landscapes. Monasteries, small charming chapels, rural edifices, hot springs, an archaeological and a volcanologic museum and medieval castles are some of the significant sightseeing. Of notable interest is Palaiokastro (Acropolis, or ancient city) whose impressive stone walls of heavy black stone (basalt) are a 2,500 years old marvel of architecture and engineering.
