Innovative concept store in the central street of Arachova, overflowing with inspiration and bearing the signature of the ever restless Pery Manta, who is also the owner of the successful boutiques Lousso and Lousso M&W, which established Arachova as a shopping destination (too).
L’Escalier is housed in one of the village’s oldest buildings making an instant impression to its visitors for its architecture and design. Responsible for this is the young and talented architect Argyris Chronopoulos, who managed to give prominence to the building’s history and at the same time, offer a perfect contemporary point of view. Bear in mind that almost everything in this store is handmade. The main elements used are marble, wood and iron (all the ironworks are handmade). Even its name derives from a unique feature of the building; the staircase! In order for this marvelous and impressive staircase to be showcased they had to tear down a substantial part of the old premises.
Pery Manta and the very communicative Rallou Leivadarou welcome you to this friendly and cozy store, with the latter being blessed with the “magical charisma” to be able to enter your mind and mentality in order to find exactly what you are looking for.What can one find in L’Escalier?
