“Country retreat set in the beautiful surrounds of Sirikari”
Reviewed August 28, 2015 for a stay in August 2015
people found this review helpful

We had a lovely 4 night escape to Kastania Cottages. If you love mountains, rural escapes and getting away from it all, this place comes highly recommended.

Our hosts Stelios and Ariero were very welcoming and most helpful. Stelios grew up here as a child and knows about all it's hidden gems. This included a walk in the sirikari gorge. No people to be seen but plenty of speccy moutanins, caves and goats. Really rugged country that gives you a great buzz to walk through. Stelios has also made a path in the gorge below his property. His long term plan is to connect it to the sirikari gorge walk.

The cooking amenities in the villa are a bit light on. There is a fridge and stove top but little in the way of utensils (we often experienced this traveling in Greece - not fully organsied on the accomodation front, but I guess they want you to eat with them). So don't go there thinking you will do your own cooking. Eat breaky and dinner with them. The food is natural and local and very delicious!! And very reasonably priced. I miss those evening meals.

There are two room options. Go with the upstairs one if you can as it has a nice verandah. The downstairs one is a little pokey.

Anyway I can highly recommend staying here if you want a local and cultural experience.
