News from Karpenissi

Karpenissi and the surrounding area, one of the most favorite destinations for winter outings, make sure that they always renew themselves and offer us occasions to arrange yet another visit, especially when the first snow falls in the ski center that is found on the slopes of Mount Velouchi. So, besides our walks in the heart of Karpenissi and the nearby picturesque villages (such as Megalo Horio and Mikro Horio, Klafsi and Voutyro) that stretch along the valley of river Karpenissiotis, up to the impressive Monastery of Proussos, here are a few more ideas that will make your trip more enjoyable. If you’re on a family trip, the “Karavaki Science Fun Park” in the “Ninemia Bungalows Resort” opened recently as a recreational and play area with a clear educational orientation for all ages. The impressive and wide variety of skill games, activities and living experiences focusing on rural life make it a must-visit place for young and old. For the party’s foodies, the “Fresko” trout farm in the village of Gavros is open to the public and offers fresh river fish, savoury appetizers in different variations, local drinks and packed deli products with trout as their highlight. If you have a sweet tooth, in the stylish pastry shop “Delice” in Karpenissi you will find homemade syrupy sweets and ice cream. Be sure to try the chocolate cheesecake. For a drink, go to the imposing bar “Onar”, where you will find one of the largest lists of whiskeys, to drink by the fireplace listening to quality jazz-blues music. As far as your accommodation is concerned, the boutique hotel “Oniropetra”, a few kilometers away from Karpenissi, is a new arrival and combines tradition with mod cons and great views. Last but not least, the brand new, self-contained villas of “The View Village” at Myli will make you feel at home, as they boast amenities such as a fireplace, a kitchen, and a spa centre.
