Central Greece is home to unfathomable beauty known to very few visitors. Little towns like Galaxidi and Amfissa and famous villages like Arahova compose a unique mosaic waiting to be explored.
Polidrosos is one of the lesser known traditional villages in Greece untouched by the numerous waves of tourists that visit the country every year.
The architecture is simple yet efficient; the grey stone houses, softened by time, are designed to retain the heat in the winter and remain cool in the summer. There are no 5-star hotels here; you will find though, in the kind faces of the locals and the serene simplicity of their guesthouses, a hospitality that is unparalleled.
What is great about Polidrosos is that it can be a starting point for a unique exploration of Greek nature and its top quality products. Surrounded by extensive and ancient woodlands, the area around the village is a paradise to hikers, mountain bikers and skiers.
Inside the picturesque village, one will find many quaint shops that offer handmade products, such as cheese and herbs, for sale.
For the lovers of wine, Polidrosos has a special surprise in store with its very own winery. Here not only can you visit the vineyard but you will observe the winemaking process and taste some of the best varieties of Greek wine.
For the more adventurous, there is an abandoned bauxite mine that is open to visitors; here, one can enjoy a wagon cart exploration of the excavated caves and experience the feel of a real miner.
