On the ground floor there are two rooms, the principal room, to kyrios katoi, and the room of the donkey, to katoi tou gaidarou, which resulted from an extension of the building in the beginning of the 18th century.
On the first floor there is the drawing room, i sala, the winter room, to himoniatiko, the chamber, i kamari , and the summer room, o ontas.

The winter room (to himoniatiko)
Protected from the north wind, the room gave shelter to the whole family. The fireplace, around which all the family gathered during the cold days, used to be the only source of heating as well as the place where the housewife cooked the meals. This fireplace was restored and used as a mould for all the fireplaces of the house.
Today, it is a room with two beds(one double and one single) and its own yard, protected from the north wind. The bathroom of himoniatiko used to be the old oven of the house.
The chamber (i camari)
It was the room which offered the utter seclusion to the couple or to any official quests. Nowadays it is a double room (a double bed), without fireplace, suitable for lie-in looking at Saint John’s peak.
The summer room (o ontas)
It was the summer room of the family, a wooden roofed verandah that makes you think of being on a bridge deck. You can see the whole village, the surrounding mountains and even Taygetos.
The fireplace that has been added and the kitchen facilities have transformed the room into the place where breakfast is served as well as into a living room quite inviting and attractive.
