Set on the mountain village of Pavliani with a nearby forest, and surrounded by lush greenery, Vasilikia Mountain Farm & Retreat in Mount Oeta, is the ideal spot to bring you a step closer to Greece’s beautiful nature.
Located in a traditional village filled with stone and wooden houses, that are built in harmony with the environment, Vasilikia Farm features an organic garden, a lovely pond, an assortment of animals, and a wooden watchtower that will be loved by the entire family.
The property is located at an altitude of 1,010 m, just outside the quaint village of Pavliani, which marks the entrance to Oiti National Park, providing an ideal base for discovering rare herbs and wildflowers, as well as engaging in a host of outdoor activities that will better acquaint you with the area’s remarkable natural and cultural heritage.
A truly all-year-round destination, it also provides guests with easy access to Mt. Parnassos and its two ski centers, majestic Asproneri beach on the shores of the Malian Gulf, as well as the UNESCO World Heritage-listed archaeological site and museum of Delphi.
Vasilikia Mountain Farm is not only the ideal retreat for romantic getaways, ultimate relaxation, and quality family time, it’s also the perfect springboard for a wealth of adventures and a gateway to a world of discovery.
The delightful wooden cottages have an American mountain ranch design, combined with elements of an English countryside farmstead. They are unique in terms of layout, furnishings, and fittings and feature distinct artworks and decor, which gives them a rustic feel.
Boasting an organic garden, pond with a dam and wooden bridge, a rock garden full of herbs, a treehouse, stone fountain, and a natural spring-fed well with water from a mountain peak deep in the national park – all help create a truly idyllic setting that is far from city living. And depending on the season, guests will be able to savor freshly picked mirabelles, sour cherries, hazelnuts, sweet cherries, plums, apples, quinces, chestnuts, and walnuts.
There is also a chapel with a bell tower, a Taverna Lodge, where guests can enjoy meals, snacks, and drinks or play games besides the wood-burning stove, a stable with a traditional wooden facade, a rabbit hutch, tractor shed, stone-built pen and drinking trough for the sheep and goats; a cheese dairy, and poultry house, as well as a pond for the ducks, geese, turkeys, chickens, and guinea fowl which roam freely- which all serve to confirm Vasilikia’s credentials as a genuine working farm.
The property’s most popular landmark is the log-built observation tower. Twenty meters high, it offers an amazing 360-degree view that takes in not only four of central Greece’s most stunning peaks (Mt. Kallidromo, Mt. Othrys, Mt. Oiti, and Mt. Giona) but also the sea.
