Panagiotis VlaikosIf one had to describe what kinds of things Greece is made of, one could not but include the sea and the stone among them

So, when I started working alongside my father, at the age of 23, I felt my soul swell with love for my island, Alonnisos, for the endless blue that surrounds it and for that stone itself, which the master builders transform with great effort and skilled craftsmanship into traditional houses of exceptional beauty.

This was my occupation for nearly 20 years, until circumstances changed and I decided to try converting the traditional houses my father’s parents used almost a century ago at the picturesque bay of Agios Petros into holiday accommodations.

With a lot of love and care, the traditional buildings were restored and formed the basis for the creation of Lithea Villas & Studios by the Sea. Every intervention to the buildings was made with respect to the traditional style and the environment, so that the result retains the original sense of harmony while including all modern amenities. The whole enterprise could not have succeeded without my 20 years of experience working with my father, who was a wonderful teacher as well as a gifted stonecutter.

Today, I am occupied exclusively with the provision of tourist accommodation services and the management of our traditional lodgings at the bay of Agios Petros, which include holiday rooms and homes by the sea.

I have been very fortunate to have the encouragement and support of my wife all along, with whom we share our love for Alonnisos, and especially for the region of Agios Petros – one of the most beautiful spots on the island.

It is my hope and wish that I will continue for a long time to offer a high level of services to my clients and that, eventually, this will be the full time occupation of my wife too, who now can only be involved occasionally, due to her professional commitments.

With all this in mind, it will be a great pleasure to welcome you to our traditional holiday lodgings at the bay of Agios Petros of Alonnisos and ‘initiate’ you into the beauties of Alonnisos, which I am certain you will love.

 

Looking forward to having you here,

Panagiotis

 Maria BouziniMy name is Maria Bouzini and I was born in the town of Krnov, in the region of Bohemia, Czech Republic.

I completed my studies at the Obstetrics & Gynecology Department of the Olomouc School of Public Health and then worked for two years at my town’s Obstetrics Clinic as a Midwife.

In 1985, I came with my parents to Greece, where I was fortunate enough to find employment in the field of my training. Since 1986, I have been serving at the Public Maternity Hospital of Pireaus, again as a clinical midwife.

As far back as I can recall, I’ve always been attracted to Architecture and Decorating, so after building the tourist accommodation facilities my husband and I manage in Alonnisos, I personally attended to the premises’ decoration, taking special care to respect and draw inspiration from the traditional local architectural style.

Although at the present stage in my life I have to give priority to my professional commitments in Athens, my heart often travels to Alonnisos, a place I cherish dearly and visit whenever circumstances allow it.

During my summer leave, I never miss the chance to help at our facilities, sometimes as a hostess and sometimes as a ‘volunteer’ guide for our guests.

If I could make a ‘wish’ about the time when I will retire from my professional career in obstetrics, that wish would definitely entail the island of Alonnisos and the enchanting bay of Agios Petros, the location of our complex: Lithea Villas & Studios by the Sea.  

In any case, it is always a great joy to welcome you to our facilities and share with you the ‘secret’ beauties of Alonnisos.

 

So, welcome and enjoy your stay,

Maria
