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
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.
Very good hotel, amazing view, great silence. Big and comfortable the standard room. In positives, the bar and the restaurant. The best of all for me it was the spa-center, the ladies were professional and it had a lot of programs to do. Perfect destination to enjoy and relax.
A great location with a unique view to the amazing mountains! It is the ideal hotel for people seeking a peaceful place surrounded by a magnificent nature while enjoying its excellent facilities, spacious rooms, indoor and outdoor swimming pool, spa, excellent food and local wines! All the staff are more than welcoming and ecxeed expectations! Well done to all! We will be coming back soon!!
