With the encircling mountain views, it’s hard not to feel invigorated just from the panoramic views here, on the top of a mountain in Epirus, Greece. The ultimate in secluded, wilderness hideaways, Grand Forest Metsovo has carved itself a niche, where guests can have full immersion into the surrounding landscapes.
From biking mountain tracks to hiking, horse riding and paddleboarding on nearby lakes, there are myriad ways to get out and explore. The scenic surroundings are here for the taking and the hotel encourage guests to enjoy fresh air and activity. If you prefer something less active, you can indulge in the tradition of truffle hunting or enjoy a picnic in a scenic location. And when you come home, get ready for pampering to soothe muscles or simply treat yourself. With an indoor pool and outdoor infinity pool, hammam, sauna, jacuzzi and treatment rooms, it’s easy to get into relaxation mode.
Many come here for three of four nights and find that the combination of fresh air, activity, relaxation, spa treatments and wholesome food sets them up nicely for a wellness reset. What’s also great about Grand Forest is that from here you can access Greek culture too. In just an hour you can visit the UNESCO-listed cliff-carved monastery of Meteora to see byzantine architecture perched on rock formations – an extraordinary sight. From here, wind your way down to the Mediterranean Coast or add on more culture at Delphi.
