Papaevangelou hotel, to experience Greek hospitality in an idyllic mountain landscape
Papaevangelou hotel is enviably placed underneath the mountains, just at the entrance of Papigo Village, with stunning views on the Astraka towers. Blending naturally into the landscape, the stone mansion combines rustic traditional charm with modern sleekness. Light-filled spaces, wooden floors, built-in fireplaces and touches of colours here and there, give this mansion a unique homey aura. In every space, you will see the mountain slopes, as you gaze out the windows, sit at the cobbled terrace or walk in the garden beautifully maintained with grapevines and flowering plants.
Have a drink at the terrace or the lounge by the fireplace in winter. Cocoon in your room while admiring the stunning view and wake up the following morning to a delightful homemade breakfast.
Your stay at Papaevangelou hotel will be unique thanks to the genuine hospitality of George, Markella and their team. Greek hospitality in action.
