All our Epirus collections:
Northern and Central Greece hasn’t really taken off as a tourist destination yet, but it’s got excellent infrastructure for visitors and it’s beautifully perched on the edge of the Ionian Sea, with a wild unspoiled coastline. It’s also home to numerous interesting little towns, fishing ports and summer resorts. So if you did want to experience this quietly beautiful region before everyone else does, you’d find the best places to stay in Epirus scattered around the whole area, with a cluster in the little resort town of Parga, and a smattering in the mountainous interior.
The best places to stay in Epirus all seem to benefit from beautiful views - there are a lot to be had about here - proximity to charming towns and very reasonable room rates. Epirus also has mountain towns to rival those of Provence, and views to rival Scotland’s. Plus it's got brown bears, wolves and jackals, lovely monasteries, golden eagles, and happy Greek holidaymakers.
Parga with its two castles, the Venetian castle in town and the Ali Pasha castle just outside town, its well kept sandy beaches and its rather Italian looking amphitheatre of a village, is an obvious choice, but Ammoudia is also very beautiful. On the Ionian side of Greece, Ammoudia has a history based somewhat on mythology, as Homer writes this as the place where you could find the passage to the netherworld. There are also a number of archeological sites and the beautifully milky Acheron River.
Away from the coast, Epirus is also where you’ll find Vikos Gorge (as far as the Guinness Book of Records is concerned it’s the world’s deepest canyon), the rugged peaks of the Pindus Mountains and the 48 wonderfully rustic stone villages of the Zagori region.
Whether you want a rustic getaway or a beach holiday without the hordes, our pick of the best places to stay in Epirus will not disappoint.
