"While I was visiting my Greek friend who lives in Athens, she and I scheduled a visit to Karpenisi Greece and, from there, to the wonderful Proussos Monastery!..This special monastery is nestled in the mountains of "Little Switzerland" Greece...its setting is beyond words!!!!..We had made arrangements to spend the night there ahead of time...the stay was wonderful...clean twin room, with fresh towels and blankets...no cost involved unless you choose to make a contribution. We awoke to a rooster crowing at 3:30 am to remind us of the 5:00 am Greek Orthodox service in the chapel there enclosed in the mountains! After the service, which was beautiful, there was a breakfast served with Greek coffee and sweetbreads. It was a warm, humbling, emotional experience to be there in that inspirational setting...I would return in a heartbeat!!!"
Also, if you arrive in the late afternoon, be sure to visit Proussos village close by and stop at the restaurant on the left in town center. It has wonderful views of the mountains and the monastery, as well as excellent food and service!
