Our Guesthouse is located in the center of Arachova. Α family mansion used to be here, which we partially restored after many years, repurposing its area by creating a warm and welcoming environment from wood and stone, the main materials of the mountain. The name Afanos originates from the Ancient Greek language and the word "φανός" (faˈnɔs), which means lucent or pine wood torch. This toponym preserves over the centuries the memory of an important ancient Phryctoria of the area. Phryctoria was a means of communication used in Ancient Greece, with marks transmitted from area to area using torches overnight. Mountain ranges are said to represent the culture and human settlement of a country and we are honoring that with considered care.


Welcome to Arachova. The small town of Viotia hanging in the 968m altitude, has experienced great glories in recent years. Arriving in Arachova you will find the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the main road.. but behind the fancy showcase you will discover a state that effectively resists time with the intense presence of the traditional Greek province life. The stone village houses with steaming chimneys are cornered in the narrow uphill streets and the whole village seems to hang on the slopes of the mountain, in a landscape that reaches the limits of perfection. During the winter months Parnassos is often wrapped in fog and then the lights of Arachova shine more brightly in the silver light and the image of the village feels like a fairy tale!
