In 1997 the property was bought by the Greek State. During all this time the Villa Rosa was considered a famous cosmic attraction housing numerous social events. Even members of the Greek Royal Family attended them. Today it is a preserved monument of the 19th century constituting a landmark with great emotional value for the inhabitants of the island.
