ARACHOVA VILLAGE 700
Arachova is a mountain village located at the foot of Mount Parnassus in altitude of 950 m. It belongs to the prefecture of Viotia and is about away 160 km from Athens. Beautiful stone houses and narrow streets around water sources is the first images visitors see. Arachova, despite the high level of tourism development, has retained its traditional character, while offering the amenities and activities, which the visitors are seeking.


Arachova offers the chance to enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking or ski down the slopes of Mt. Parnassos at the biggest downhill ski resort in Greece. The mountain’s high altitude offers ski lovers long-lasting snow cover at the peaks. Discover the traditional character of the village by taking leisurely walks through its narrow cobblestone street and enjoy hot and sweet or soft and fruity drinks in cafés, or traditional kafeneia (coffee shops). Stay up all night and enjoy the village’s bustling nightlife, where you can find a plethora of bars and clubs up and down the streets of Aráhova.

Do not miss to visit the nearby archaeological site of Delphi and Parnassos National Park. Delphi was a Temple/sanctuary/monument/tomb. Delphi is at the foot of Mount Parnassos, the highest peak in Greece after Mount Olympos. Delphi was the site of one of the most important pan-Hellenic oracles of the Greek world, that of Pythian Apollo, as well as other important sanctuaries.

Arachova offers a memorable gourmet experience; taste local specialties: kontosouvli (big hunks of pork skewered and put on a rotisserie with onions, tomatoes, peppers and seasoned with salt and pepper, garlic and oregano), kokoretsi (the intestines of the lamb stuffed with offal), sarmades (stuffed grape leaves), traditional pies, handmade trahanas (pasta soup, can be sweet or sour), and hilopites (egg noodles made in linguine-sized strips, cut into small pieces).

The region of Arachova is well-known for its textiles, woodwork, dry wines and the local cheese, called "formaela".It also produces a sweet smelling hard rind cheese of with a relatively mild flavour that you should definitely taste!
