We stayed there on our way from Olympia to Meteora. Our room was lovely and the grounds were nice. I picked some oranges to eat (with permission) and saw a tortoise roaming around. The place is so serene and quiet close to Arta where we went for dinner. We paid extra for Breakfast (a mere 5 euros) and was a huge plate with cheese, egg pie, yogurt, fruit, croissant, coffee and orange juice. Bathroom was spotless and modern, A/C unit quiet and beds comfortable.
The rooms are large, extremely clean and well-decorated. You are welcomed by a multilingual family (French, English, Italian...) who go out of their way to please you. Wifi works perfectly and you can park your car outside in the garden. Both breakfast and dinner are cooked and served by the mother and for once you eat original dishes : lamb in the oven, fried slices of zucchinis, stuffed aubergines and various types of tarts. I will definitely stay again next time.
A nice modern hotel set in large grounds. The room was a good size with large bathroom and very clean. The young owner's son was friendly and helpful and spoke enough English. We didn't try the restaurant but it serves freshly cooked dinner and breakfast. The spa was in a separate building and seemed a little old fashioned. The bed was comfortable.
We stumbled upon this hotel on our way to Ioánnina. Arta is a town that suffers from the economic problems that beset Greece, but just up the road was the hotel Marathia - a modern, clean spa - and tranquil haven. The rooms, with balconies, overlook gardens or the hills, where buzzards circle and cry out. The evening meal . . . the restaurant is the only one in the area - was superb. Great local wine and very reasonably priced. Likewise, breakfast was individually tailored, rather than buffet and very tasty. If you visit this area the hotel Marathia is a must . . . First class!
A little out of Arta, but a fabulous place to stay. Spacious grounds and a general feeling of homeliness while still being a modern property. The evening dinner had ony a few choices, but we had meatballs which was just lovely and very satisfying and very genuine greek fare. Breakfast was served in the lovely little dining room and was served up to you by the "greek mumma" who was obviously a great cook. A plate of anything you could ask for at breakfast as well as another plate of goodies. The famiy property was managed by a lovely young lady who spoke beautiful English and who conveyed our conversation to the elderly owners. It was an absolute delite to have stayed. Don't be put off by being a little out of town, and certainly don't be put off because it is so inexpensive.…
