Welcome to Antouaniko Mansion in Chios, GREECE

About Antouaniko Mansion


The area to the south of Chios city is known as Kambos. It is completely flat and covered by a dense network of small roads.

Most of the land is planted with citrus trees. The orchards are individually surrounded by high stone fences to protect the trees from wind and dust. The scenery of Kambos is distinctive and bears little resemblance to that of the other Aegean Islands.

Antouaniko is one of the garden estates in the area. The main house was built in 1893, but older structures, such as the irrigation system of the citrus plantation, survive within the estate.

Work at Antouaniko included structural repairs, conservation of the main house and conversion of auxiliary buildings into residential spaces, mostly for holiday use, as well as extended restoration works on the irrigation system.

The relationship between built and natural environment was reinstated, following the original, as a vacation house with agricultural development surrounding it, with all the intervening spaces, structures and qualities conserved.
