This is the "Red House", one of the town's must see. This photo is the west side of the house.
The Red House was the house of Malliou family and was build at 1884 by the French architect Flengis. This house was very often at the past, the summer house of the Greek kings. It was a clinic also at the past.
Now, belongs to the public of the city, and it is a culture center.

Such a lovely view and so very magestic, this mansion-like house. The lovely colour of the house and the green tree and wonderful blue water make this a very impressive picture!
The architecture looks very solid and will last for years. I am glad it is open to the public for all to enjoy.
Thanks for sharing!

Nice picture with beautiful colors. The location and architecture of the house is impressive. Well captured mediterranean scenery. It would have been even better if you would have included more of the shoreline. Maybe you could have taken the shot from somewhere further to your left, if possible.
Wonderful composition, nonetheless.

A very nice shot, revealing this impressive architecture! I think you should try the same shot in different light maybe close to sunset, so that you have a more dramatic colouful sky. The DOF is excellent as well as the colour balance. Well done Mpampi & thanks for your critiques!

Well composed pix where the grand villa is displayed very well. The low shooting angle is good for the compo. Good job Mpampis

Ακολούθησα το link της τρίτης φωτογραφίας αυτού του υπέροχου σπιτιού και από εδώ φαίνεται καλύτερα η εξαιρετική αρχιτεκτονική του καθώς και η υπέροχη θέση στην οποία βρίσκεται (Φυσικό είναι αφού το είχαν οι βασιλιάδες για εξοχικό). Πάρα πολύ καλή παρουσίαση.

The architecture and the overall scenary are excellent. What I like the most in this picture is your inclusion of the flower pot in the front. That is very nice. Well done. Sothy
