Snowcapped mountains and pine forests probably aren’t the first things that spring to mind when you picture Greece. But a stay at the Grand Forest Metsovo, a luxe hillside hideaway with views of the Pindos Mountains, puts the spotlight on northern Greece’s natural beauty. The hotel is geared up to welcome visitors in from the great outdoors year-round — whether they have been skiing, hiking or just taking in the mountain air. The decor throughout is contemporary, with homey touches — a plaid blanket here, a warm rug there — and the restaurant keeps things cozy with a roaring fire and traditional menu. The spa features indoor and outdoor panoramic pools, a hot tub and a sauna, and the guestrooms are decked out with wooden floors and dark wood furnishings and most come with mountain-view balconies, controllable heating, hot drink facilities and free WiFi.
In the Area
In summer, hike through the forest (the hotel can organize a picnic) or head out onto the scenic mountain roads to visit Meteora, less than an hour away. A group of Greek Orthodox monasteries were built here in the 14th century on natural sandstone towers. Some are still standing, and the site has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. There are also a handful of small ski resorts within easy reach of the hotel, including the newly opened Anilio Ski Resort, just 10 minutes away. There’s a tobogganing slope at the hotel, too.
How to Get There
This hotel is beautiful but..
The road is terrible and dangerous,
The wifi didn’t work ,
Bad odor at the passing halls.
The room is 4*..
The sauna cost 20 euro..
Breakfast is good.
Swimming pool temperature not convenient.
Price is for 5 * but hotel is 4*..
The hotel is located on a mountain and each time you need to drive you will spend 10 minute just to arrive to the highway..
we have 3 kids - 6 years old, 3 years old and a baby -8 months old. we book the grand suit and paid 400€ for one night! we were very disapointed since the staff was really not nice to us and made us feel unwelcome with our kids. they didn't agree to use a baby chair in the lobby, didn't allow kids to use the swimming pool at the afternoon and made really rood comments
We stayed here for just one night, but the experience was not one to be easily forgotten. The hotel itself is just gorgeous and not to mention the surroundings. We were given a 3km hiking trail which was just in nature and offered beautiful views of Metsovo. We took advantage of both the spa and restaurant and we were not disappointed. The staff was just pleasant and welcoming from start to finish. The only regret I have is not booking a longer stay in this beautiful hotel.
