Faris Hotel is located on a hilltop opposite the majestic Tayegetus mountain range. Such an oasis of tranquility is really incredible. However, if you don’t like the city life away from the hustle and bustle, it is not for you.
There are a variety of room types to choose from, double rooms, twin rooms, single rooms, triple rooms and suites. Breakfast is included in the room rate, but you will have to pay for other meals.
This hotel is built of stone in the style of a traditional house in the area and offers views of the Spartan plains. You can also see the sea from the nearest village, Gorani. On the terrace, you can also see eagles flying overhead at certain times of the day. If you have never seen a wild eagle, you will marvel at their agility, sweet voice and majesty.
There is a fireplace for the winter in the dining room. You can ip drink a local brandy brandy while sitting in front of the door. The snacks that accompany Xiaooch are delightful, for example, figs stuffed with walnuts.
The hotel’s owner George can tell you all about the area and if they want the prophet Elias to reach the top of the mountain, they will take them to the refuge. It is shaped like a pyramid and is a local landmark.
On the hillside leading to the hotel, you will see George’s walnut and chestnut trees, and you can usually buy candied fruit made from them. There is also local honey, which matches well with locally made yogurt.
The water injected into the hotel is spring water, which is completely different from the normal tap water. Really quench my thirst.
There are two huge Greek mountain dogs outside the hotel. They play the role of watchdogs and are so large that wild boars will not improve for a long time, even though one of the dogs is blinded by one. Fortunately, although her vision has not fully recovered, she has recovered. There are cats here too, so this is a big obstacle. This hotel is dog friendly, so your dog can accompany you and make new friends with the animals.
Worth visiting is the Byzantine monastery in nearby Gola, but please check with George for opening hours.
The road to the hotel is steep and the hairpins are curved, so be careful and walk slowly.
The signpost of this hotel is obviously Xirokampi, so it is easy to find.
You can visit at any time of the year. Please book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
