This beautiful rental in the mountains of Central Greece adds an unexpected touch to the farm in which it is situated. The unique characteristics of the cottage, with its exterior appearance featuring a singular color motif and spacious verandas, its facade with glass windows offering a sweeping view of the fir forest, the luxurious bathtub and the imaginative layout create the idyllic picture of glamping, where today’s busy city dwellers can find a haven for a relaxing forest break.

The ground floor of this glamping property includes a sitting area with two three-seater sofas, two armchairs, and two rocking chairs. There is a bathroom on this floor that includes a bathtub. There is one bedroom on this floor that includes two twin beds, and a cupboard, and another bedroom with a queen-size bed with a wardrobe, bookshelves, and an en suite shower. The attic provides accommodation for extra guests as it includes two twin-size beds, a sofa and a hanging wardrobe

The cottage has a full kitchen that includes a butcher block work island and a dining area. The kitchen is including a filter coffee maker, an espresso machine, a fridge/freezer, a mini electric cooker with an oven, all crockery, utensils and cutlery, and a full dinnerware set. As well as this, the kitchen contains electrical appliances, a cooker hood, paper towels and washing up liquid. To make life a little bit easier for guests, the host has kindly stocked the kitchen with a few essential such as espresso and filter coffee, tea, both white and brown sugar, evaporated milk, olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper.

The host has provided guests with a hair dryer, face and bath towels, and face and body liquid soap for the bathroom.

Certain aspects of the farm, such as the organic garden, the pond with its dam and wooden bridge, the rock garden full of herbs, the tree house, the stone fountain and the natural spring fed by water from a mountain peak deep in the national park, help create a truly idyllic setting that is far from a commonplace.

There is a chapel on site with a bell tower, which looks like it has been lifted from an Alpine slope. There is also a tavern, where guests can enjoy meals, snacks, and drinks or play games beside the wood burning stove. The stable has a traditional wooden facade reminiscent of Normandy and a hayloft full of authentic ethnic memorabilia.

Guests will also find a charming rabbit hutch, a tractor shed, a stone built pen and drinking trough for the sheep and goats, a poultry house, and a pond for the ducks, geese, turkeys, chickens and guinea fowl that roam freely, which all serve to confirm this glamping farm's credentials as a genuine working farm.

The most prominent landmark on this glamping site is the log built observation tower, which is 20 meters high. The tower affords an amazing 360 degree view that takes in not only four of central Greece’s most stunning peaks (Mt. Kallidromo, Mt. Othrys, Mt. Oiti and Mt. Giona) but also the sea. Guests can use the telescope to zoom in on points of interest in the surrounding countryside or stargaze to the rustling of leaves, the gurgling of streams and other sounds of the forest.

The farm is completed by impressive stands of trees; tall poplars and characteristic local species such as arbutus, tilia, circis as well as acacia, plane, oak and willow. Depending on the season, guests will be able to savor freshly picked mirabelles, sour cherries, hazelnuts, sweet cherries, plums, apples, quinces, chestnuts, and walnuts.

Kids will also love the outdoor play area with swings, slides, and a playhouse.

It provides an ideal base for exploring the national park and engaging in a host of outdoor activities that will better acquaint guests with the area’s remarkable natural and cultural heritage. Though majestic in its rugged splendor, Mt. Oiti is easily accessible, in fact, the locals say the entire mountain can be walked from end to end, which is an idea for a rewarding hike.
