get away from the crowds high up in beautiful Mikro Papigo. There are many wonderful walks in the area and some delightful villages. The Dias House is family run and very welcoming. The food, especially vegetarian, is delicious and the wine slips down very well. Wonderful thick yoghurt is a treat. It is a bit remote so you need transport but it is well worth the effort.
We stayed in Dias Guesthouse for 3 nights during our vacation in Greece last spring. The region is beautiful, very different from the stereotyped Greece. The blue rivers, the high mountains, the green trees and old arch bridges are wonderful. So, this stoned-wall guesthouse was a great addition to our experience. What I will say can be funny, but what I remember the most are the sunlight over the stone ceiling during sunset and the yogurt they served us for brekfast = ) The owner and his family/staff was very attentive and helpful. Dias is one of the few restaurants and accomodation in Mikro Papingo and, I think, one of the most busy too. The rooms were good and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and well-served. We had some of our meals at their restaurant: good experience (try lamb chops)! The prices and rates are not expensive and the service is like we were home. The ambience was very calm and relaxing. If you came for hiking, they can sell you some maps, one of the best I've heard. Before going, I bought mine online, but I could have done it at place. From the village, one can hike several good trails. We didn't do the hardest one to the high mountain, but the two trails we took didn't disappointed us. If you come by car, which I think it is the best way to do so, take notice it is a little tricky to park in the village. Don't worry, there is large areas to do so. But take instructions from Dias in advance. I think the only downside of the village (not of the guesthouse itself) is the strong smell of "burned oil" that the fancy golf-cars from the fancy resort leave on the streets. But this simple fact cannot make you give up coming to this charming corner of Greece.…
the rooms are comfortable ,the bed is very large and soft. the rooms are not cleand every day. breakfast is local and the yougort is great. you can get dinner but there are other optoins around. ask for any advise about what to do around the area ,they will help willingly.
Costas and the crew running Dias are the best, we have not enough words to express. The place has the facilities of a hotel, it is well desiged,warm and clean, with a beautiful patio, but also is welcoming as a guesthouse. We arive later then we expected and after reception opening times , but they found a creative way to except as very late at night. Later on we came back from a trek with one of us hurt in her leg and Costas made an extraordinary efort to help us get back to the hotel. Food is excellent and espacially the soups are great. And also- it has a very fine price. We highly and warmly recomend this place.
We arrived at "Días" after a long day of walking and were happy to see the beautiful room with vew to the mountains. The stay was wonderful,the owner was very generous and friendly. A definite come back.
