Our old canava just one day before it’s metamorphosis to Andronis Boutique Hotel

Maria Alipranti found the best words to describe Christos Drazos photos of our old canava just one day before it’s metamorphosis to Andronis Boutique Hotel a 5 star luxury property located in the centre of Oia.

When Christos e-mailed me these photos of an old canava in Oia, Santorini that was about to be restored, I couldn’t help smiling.

All those spontaneous decorations, full of colors and messages, they bring an aura of distant days and ways that are over.  8 Track tapes, diaries, and advertising posters that fade from the sun, are the souvenirs of a time that promised fulfillment and joy. Yet, now they lay there like children’s toys, carefree in their innocence and ready to give their place to elegant grey, i pods and less is more decorations.

And I feel completely disoriented about it; I mean, I do love elegant grey, i pods and less is more. But finding the perfect neutral palette for my new floor doesn’t make me smile like these retro pluralistic images do…  Maybe because the oldcanava decorations express something familiar.  And it is worth to discover what this familiarity is about, because if we incorporate it to contemporary thinking, we could develop a stronger identity, in a visual, culinary, or personal level.

What do you think about this? How do these pictures make you feel?

Sunset in Santorini

Many writers, travelers and romantics have claimed that Santorini boasts some of the best sunsets in the world. Legend surrounds Santorini, and some say the island was part of Atlantis before its destruction millennia ago by the volcano in its midst. Today, as the sun sets, the island enters into a twilight zone that makes visitors wonder about its mysterious past and feel its powerful charisma.

The best views and most spectacular sunsets on the island can be seen at Oia, just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel. Watch as the sun sinks into the sea, a majestic site that adds an almost spiritual dimension to any sunset.
