“Excellent B&B; good base for Lake Kerkini”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

An excellent B&B, 5 minutes away from Lake Kerkini. Clean, well presented rooms with en suite shower and balcony in a modern well-designed building. An excellent breakfast with home made jams and cake, and local bougatsa and bread. Hrisohorfata is in a rural location - you are more likely to be woken by cockerels, than passing traffic or planes! Nikos very helpful in giving us local information: we met him at the British Birdwatching Fair, and he had been very persuasive in encouraging us to visit and see the pelicans, lesser whitefronted geese and other birds of the area. It did not disappoint! Also some wonderful caves and historical sites within a reasonable drive, as a contrast to the beauty of the lake.

En excellent B&B very close to Kerkini Lake (Serres).
Very clean, spacious rooms, furnitures of a great quality, fireplace.
Very friendly owners, great breakfast, and Nikos is always willing to give you the best info about where to go and what to see. A lot of outdoor activities, if you're a fan (birdwatching, bicycle, climbing, trekking, etc)

The village is very quiet and the place there is magic!

I'd definitely like to be there again!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2009

In early December 05-08/12 we stayed there because we were told of a beautiful custom they have there, which called "kazania".
During this time many villagers are going to a previous none place where they boil grapes to produce tsipouro.
During this event blocks of people sit together, eat, drink and sing.
Neither me or my wife had the opportunity to participate in this custom before.
After arriving on Friday night we met Nikos (property owner) and his family which were extremely nice.They invited us to the "kazani" for Saturday noon and told us many things about their region.
We went to restaurant "Symposio" the same evening and met Maria, which is one of the most open and nice persons i ever met.
Rooms are very cosy and well furnished and you can find anything that you may want to make your stay easy.
In the surrounding area you can find many things to do and see.
Lake Kerkini is only 15 minutes away by car and there you can enjoy birdwatching, fishing, horse riding, boat trip, walking and other motions.
Also you can enjoy a visit to thermal baths of Agistro or to mount Roupel where a great battle during WWII took place or to Allistrati cave which is one of the most spectacular caves in Balkans and probably in Europe.
Next day we went to Kamaroto where the Kazania custom took place.
There we found out parts of our people (Greeks) that still exists in the countryside.
Mr Giorgos had allready started the preparations and the grapes where in the kazani.
We participated as far as we could and an hour later we were all sitting arround a table eating, drinking and singing.
It was a fantastic trip that we recommend to all of you readers all year round.
We allready booked our next visit in early January.
Don't miss it.
