Welcome to Amfikaia
We dreamt of a place…
So quiet, we could hear the earth’s voice again.
So beautiful, it would cleanse our sight.
So pure, we would breathe again.
So fragrant, we would re-discover the essence of scents.
So fertile, we would savour its goods without waste.
So spacious, we could revive trees and rear horses.
So welcoming, we would have to share it with you.
We sowed our dreams…
On the slopes of Mount Parnassos.
We watered them with determination, effort and patience.
Over time an enchanting microcosm blossomed.
We revived the region’s most ancient name, and thus christened it Amfikaia.
Two hundred hectares of land define this terrestrial paradise. A paradise so big it is worth exploring yet is also small enough for you to sense nature’s pulse in every corner. The home of bountiful almond and pear trees, proud wild-trees and abundant bushes, embellished by beautifully tended gardens. Pergolas provide the shade, while intoxifying scents of herbs infuse the air.
And Mount Parnassos in the distance, sometimes dresses in white, sometimes in green, marks the passage of time and changing of the seasons.Here, we respect the land. Its cultivation is strongly influenced by tradition, while by producing only what the land offers we preserve flavours that have nearly been forgotten.
Here, we protect life. We rear proud Thessalian horses and Skyrian foals on the verge of disappearance and provide for pets who enjoy our care without restraints.
Here, we offer a hearty welcoming to all those who wish to escape the city and remember the mystical secrets of nature. Amfikaia, with its prototype agro tourism activities, is no ordinary hotel, but a warm embrace full of experiences. A tiny paradise on the slopes of Mount Parnassos.
Sixteen traditional houses, most of them stone-built, are an ideal refuge we have prepared for you. They are independent without being too remote, offering peace and quiet as well as the feeling of staying in a friendly neighbourhood. Their beauty complements the landscape.
The bright interiors, cool in summer and pervaded by the cosy warmth of the fireplace and central heating in the winter, have been designed with attention to detail. Discreetly decorated with taste and finesse, and equipped according to the latest standards that provide you with all mod cons, they offer you everything you need. Stonewalls assure your seclusion, while the large windows bring you a step closer to your surroundings.
The farm gardens, sheltered kiosks and communal spaces around them allow you to move about freely, participate in the seasonal agricultural activities and meet your neighbours if you so desire.
The Amfikaia farm is a warm hospitable place, as well as being a living, breathing farm, with its daily programme and maintenance tasks. If you so wish – and we believe you will – you will have an unforgettable taste of farm life by participating, at will, in our daily activities. Depending on the season you can get involved in gardening, planting, weeding or even fruit and aromatic plant picking.
The farm is your playground. You also have the opportunity to take full advantage of your time. You can relish every minute of your stay, hike along the slopes of Mount Parnassos, or even mountain bike or Playing football on the pitch with natural grass.
Finally, if you enjoy swimming, you have come to the right place. A dip in the large pond with its crystal clear crystalline water that comes straight from Mount Parnassos, is constantly replenished and promises to be a unique, refreshing experience.
