Why Us

A MATTER OF PRIDE

We would like to welcome you.

OUR PLACE

Afanos Guesthouse presents the perfect space for settling down, switching off and feel the revelry vibes in the center of Arachova. We have a select collection of 10 timeless rooms that since the old times accommodated skiers and 4 fully refurbished rooms, 2 of them have become our spacious suites. All of the rooms are named after well-known mountains of our homeland. Each of these specially curated rooms has its own story and characteristics, combining the traditional hospitality that folk areas are renowned for, but with modern amenities and facilities. Surrounded by beautiful scenery from the village, view of the Parnassos mountain range and endless panoramas of native wildlife just around the corner, Afanos Guesthouse aspires to create the most picturesque and cozy stay in the heart of Arachova.

WHY US

Our space celebrates the heritage of its location by combining the familiar and intimate with the artisanal. We work with our own community of curated suppliers and creators, many of whom are local, all of whom share our ethos for sustainable, slow and true living.

HERITAGE

Our Guesthouse is located in the center of Arachova in an area with municipal parking, accessible in a 2-minutes-walk to the heart of the village, the main square. 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. 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.

SMALL TOWN CHARM

Welcome to Arachova. The small town of Viotia 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 and evolution. 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!
