As soon as you leave the city of Katerini towards Elatohori you’ll be immersed in nature until you reach your destination, climbing gently to a village that unveils all its beauty which changes with the seasons. The Archontariki Suites, with their antique furniture and spacious rooms, offer a cozy stay in one of Central Macedonia’s most picturesque villages.
The architecture is in complete harmony with the rest of the traditional village and the décor reflects a more grandiose era of Macedonian nobility. More important is the human factor, thanks to the efforts of Mrs. Dora who runs the place with a lot of love. Dora prepares hearty breakfasts that will whet your appetite, from the quality honey and homemade jams to the herbal mountain tea and country omelet.
Her kindly ways are also evident in the attention she gives to her two adopted stray dogs and the lovely cats on the property, adding a lively element to the property. Best of all is Dora’s intimate knowledge of Pieria and her helpful tips will help you explore the region with all its beauty. She wall also tell you about the different restaurants around the property.
If you like hiking in nature, you will find yourself in this quiet corner that seems so far away from everything, yet is only 25 minutes from the region’s capital, Katerini. It is perfect for hiking and biking in spring, summer and fall. Elatochori also has a ski center, and the property becomes popular with skiers when the winter snow season begins (usually from late December to March). Whatever season you come, you’ll find the beauty of this village and the warmth of the people very rewarding.
