Aristi Mountain Resort & Villas is an ideal autumnal getaway situated in the mountainous paradise of Northwest Greece, nestled amongst high mountain tops, alpine lakes and dense forests. Aristi Mountain Resort & Villas is offering the ultimate foodie holiday as part of their new *Mushroom Hunting Package. Guests are encouraged to be at one with nature as they forage for mushrooms deep into the forests where various edible mushrooms are grown in the compatible conditions of the damp, cool mountain air.

A variety of gourmet foods are served alongside mushrooms in the property’s on-site restaurant, Salvia, from Aristi’s very own organically grown vegetables; to locally sourced ingredients from farmers and artisan producers. While Aristi’s well –stocked cellar boasts an extensive range of Greek wines.Aristi Mountain Resort & Villas -067_AMR_restaurant_1

After a day of mushroom foraging, hiking or visits to the surrounding Zagorochoria villages, guests can retire to comfortable luxury and relax beside their very own fireplace overlooking mountain panoramas – a welcome alternative to Greece’s well-trodden ruins and island beaches.Aristi Mountain Resort & Villas -AMR_15

Relaxation can also be sought courtesy of Aristi Mountain Resort & Villas’ spa – the only spa in the region. This centre of wellness has a temperature –controlled indoor swimming pool, with breath taking mountain views. Massages can also be arranged on request.
