Fodor's Expert Review Ktima Faki

Litochoro, Central Macedonia, Greece Fodor's Choice

This guesthouse, expanded and with a new swimming pool, is 700 meters (½ mile) up on the slopes of Mt. Olympus, 5 km (3 miles) from Litochoro, on the road to the church of St. John (Agios Ioannis), a local landmark. Beyond the impressive location, this place also offers simple and modern rooms done up in brown and cream, with each having its own fireplace and also amazing views of the bay out the windows. There's no air-conditioning in rooms, but the mountainous location renders it unnecessary. Each has its own fireplace, and they all open up to amazing views of the bay below. The property's six acres also contain a small organic farm, which supplies most of what is offered at breakfast, including free-range eggs, milk, and homemade jams. Much of the produce is also used as ingredients served at the restaurant, don't miss out on the outstanding house red wine while enjoying the stunning views.
