Most traditional houses in Ancient Phigaleia that are still occupied have, to a greater or lesser degree, been modernised, adapted or added to. The changes are largely internal, for example, the inclusion of an indoor toilet and bathroom.
     The land around houses, typically laid to lawn in the UK, is landscaped for indoor-outdoor living - not a trendy architectural concept, but a way of life that goes on as it has for centuries. Shaded terraces, outdoor ovens, storage space for wood (there is no gas central heating), flower and vegetable gardens, even pasture for animals is paramount.
