The traditional house of Antimachia is located close to the centre of Kos
island, just north east of the airport and in the centre of the village of Antimachia
The house was built in the 1980s but is a recreation of the islands traditional houses from the early 20th century.
It’s made entirely of stone and consists of a single story building with a walled courtyard that’s filled with beautiful potted plants.
The house is laid out and decorated with traditional materials and has musical instruments, a sewing machine and manikins dressed in traditional clothes amongst other items dating back to the period. Attached to the artefacts are cards explaining what you’re looking at and how it would have been used at the time.
Getting to the traditional house of Antimachia is no problem at all as it’s right in the middle of the town there’s no rough, difficult roads to navigate, there’s parking near by and it’s literally across the road from the Antimachia windmill
so you can see both in a single trip.
You’ll also find a couple of tavernas near by and playground so Antimachia makes for a lovely day trip.
