Archodiko   star
Chios, Kambos
Description
Archodiko is a traditional building, which was built in 1890. The renovated rooms can promise you a relaxed stay in a quite environment.

Location
Kambos is located south of the town of Chios, encompassing an area of 7 kilometers in length and of approximately 2 kilometers in width. The literal translation of the word Kambos is “plane” (connoting a leveled surface); however, this does not depict at all the splendor of this unique ensemble of agricultural settlements in the island. The descriptions of earlier historians, mostly during the 18th and 19th century, of the mansions and orchards at Kambos, have always been enthusiastic.

Mansions of high architectural quality and auxiliary buildings are equal in number with the estates and elaborate reservoirs, pebble-paved yards, wells and citrus orchards. The land is covered with gardens and orchards of orange, mandarin, lemon and bitter - orange trees flourish behind tall protective walls, in a way that they look like a forest. Each individual estate is dominated by an old house of stately appearance, whose impressive architectural structure is characterized by a series of combinations of architectural forms and features connected with the various historical periods of the island.

In the old Kampos houses or mansions, gateways are only a single element of the architectural characteristics, since they are an independent feature of the house. They normally lead from the road to the courtyard, although in some cases they lead from the grove to the courtyard. Such gateways are ornamented and reveal a tendency of the owners to try to raise their social status by adding originality to these structures. Today, those proud gateways and stone walls are collapsing and shady orchards are transformed into lots on which concrete homes are built.
