Pool & Pool House Stowe, Vermont This mountain top residential site offers spectacular 180 degree views towards adjacent hillsides. The client desired to replace an existing pond with a pool and pool house to be used for both entertaining and family use. The open site is adjacent to the driveway to the north but offered spectacular mountain views to the south. The challenge was to provide privacy at the pool without obstructing the beautiful vista from the entry drive. Working closely with the architect we designed the pool and pool house as one modern element closely linked by proximity, detailing & geometry. In so doing, we used precise placement, careful choice of building & site materials, and minimalist planting. Existing trees were edited to open up selected views to the south. Rows of ornamental grasses provide architectural delineation of outdoor space. Understated stone steps in the lawn loosely connect the pool to the main house.

Greece - one of the most popular countries among tourists. In order to visit this country today you need Schengen visa to Greece. Also, it allows to reside not only in Greece but also in each part of the countries - members of the Schengen area. For the inhabitants of the CIS, the visa is issued in Greece for a period that does not exceed 14 days. Currency Since 1 January 2002, the monetary unit of Greece is the euro (EUR). Until 2002, the national currency of the country was the Greek drachma (GRD). You can exchange money at the airport - the exchange rate is lower than in most banks, but higher than in hotels. It is cheaper to change the currency in exchange offices. They accept credit cards Visa, Diners, MasterCard and American Express, and Visa is the most popular. It should be keep in mind that outside of the major cities credit card are not used. It is almost impossible to use them in the islands (with the exception of Crete, Rhodes, Mykonos and Kos). Customs regulations You can see Greece objects of historical and cultural value.

It is no more than $ 10,000, or the equivalent of this sum of another foreign currency. Currency declaration form must be filled in excess of this amount. The climate in Greece Greece is in the Mediterranean climate zone. Summer - almost no rain, while in winter there are rains with winds. In general, the Greek climate allows to rest here at any time of the year and for any health condition, if you plan your stay here. Swimming season in Greece usually begins in May, of course, and in April it is already possible to take the "sea" and "sun" bath, but it is unlikely at this time you will meet on the beach local Greeks, who prefer "open" bathing season on June. Winter in Greece comes when the air temperature drops to 6 degrees Celsius, but this temperature is not more than 2 weeks. The average temperature in winter is 12 degrees Celsius. The coldest month - February. In January and March also relatively cool, which pleases skiers and other winter recreation. However, the tops of the mountains are almost always covered with snow. As it is known, in the coastal cities due to the sea climate is milder. During hot summer days and nights of the coast, you can enjoy a pleasant cool breeze.
