Photographer's Note

Another house in Prastos that is located on the East side of the village.
The owner of this house was Leucothea a very rich and very educated lady who dedicated her life to the cultural life of Prastos.
My mother used to go to this house when she was a child, with her little friends, where the door was always open and Leucothea was always there to tell them stories about the historical past of the village and of her house, to give them treats and to show them how to weave on the loom.
This house has a great historical and cultural value, its garden back then, used to be full of roses and geraniums of rare colors. You can still see the hanging grapevine on the left side.
To the right, you can see the top of a stone oven that is still working to date, ideal to bake bread and other food.
The interior is impressive with the thick stone walls, with the wooden roof and with the high ceilings.
The floors are made of marble and local stone.
The heirs of Leucothea have attempted to restore the house and the interior has been totally restored but the exterior needs more work.
This house is a significant part of the traditional and cultural heritage of Prastos and the story behind it is very fond to me!
The picture is dedicated to Noel Byrne.
I hope that one day he will visit this beautiful village and enjoy its picturesque treasures!
