Would you like to enjoy a pure Greek mountain experience and at the same time be pampered in a sophisticated, luxurious way?
How rejuvenating it can be to head to the mountains once in a while is common knowledge. Personally, I am more than pleased when “the mountains” are just a two hour drive from the city and can combine their de-stressing fresh air and countryside coziness with luxurious facilities and nice design, which I consider to be a must. This is why Nefeles Mainalon, situated in mountainous Arcadia, 2 hours from Athens, 25 minutes from famous town of Vitina and 10 minutes away from the ski center of Mainalon, is the perfect winter retreat.
Isolation and privacy, together with a country style decoration, with alpine-chic touches and spacious suites with comfortable bedding, big fireplaces and a view to the adjacent fir forest, are all assets of Nefeles Mainalon, member of the Hotelbrain Group, which offers value-for-money hospitality and high level of services.
I spent there a weekend in early December and appreciated the place so much that I plan to go back soon. Whether your holiday is sporty, zen, with family or a romantic getaway, I would highly recommend Nefeles as an excellent choice for anyone who wishes to enjoy a pure Greek mountain experience and at the same time be pampered in a sophisticated, luxurious way.
Apart from relaxing by the crackling fire in your private sitting room or the cozy main lounge of Nefeles Mainalon, there are plenty of activities you can do in the area. You can start by exploring the nature paths around the hotel, riding a bike or even trekking. Winter sport enthusiasts can enjoy skiing at the nearby ski center, accompanied by an experienced ski instructor or not. It also seems that the location is blessed with positive energy and strong magnetic fields and thus ideal for yoga lessons, which the team at Nefeles can arrange for you. Wine tours can also be organized by the hotel, at the traditional wineries of the region of Mantineia, which has a rich history in wine making that dates back to ancient god Dionysus. All in all, Nefeles Mainalon can be the perfect base for those who wish to discover the numerous sights and the picturesque villages of Arcadia.
WHAT TO WEAR
Pack chic knits and pair them with nautical pea coats for an updated mountain-chic look. Say yes to clothes, details and accessories, inspired by ski wear. Add a pair of cozy boots to keep you warm and comfortable when walking.
