The April 2008 issue of the Greek edition of House and Garden hosts the country retreat of the late Lefteri Saridis and his wife, Mika. Originally built in the 1930s as a hunting lodge, it remains classic and elegant, comfortable and at times daring. With spectacular views of the island of Euboea, it houses a variety of furniture from different decades and periods. It has always been an open house, hospitable to the famous, like the late Maria Kallas and Aristotle Onassis, and it continues to be very much alive thanks to Mrs. Saridis, her son and his family.
