Right out of a fairy tale
Kontogianni Guesthouse is situated in a beautiful old village up in the mountains of northern Greece. It is surrounded by thick forest of beech trees, very friendly for walks, home to a vareity of plants and animals. It is exceptionally well preserved and quiet. Usually, the only sounds to be heard are those of a dog barking, birds singing and water running from the springs. This place is like a setting from a fairy tale, the time has stopped in older times when the buildings and the roads where made from stones and with a very special architecture –mansion style- which is still the same.
