Rooms and villas are decorated with modern furniture and working fireplaces. The restaurant serves local Epirote dishes, made from produce grown in the resort’s garden and greenhouse. It also has spa facilities, as well as a number of unique excursions to offer, as a result of its cooperation with various alternative recreational tourism companies. The resort considers itself a starting point for hikers, nature-lovers and anyone interested in visiting the Zagorohoria villages.
The resort’s owner, Vasilis Iosifidis is also the co-founder of ZEN (the Zagori Excellence Network), an institution that promotes tourism in Zagori whilst preserving the region’s environment and biodiversity through green practices. At last year’s ceremony, Iosifidis said he was “proud to represent the Greek mountains,” an aspect of Greece that is often overshadowed by the country’s better-known seascapes and sites of ancient ruins.
Earlier this year, during the European leg of the World Travel Awards, Greece garnered 15 titles – six more than last year.
