Description

The space

Triple room with view to Meteora Family room,The old building has been restored and refurbished respecting traditional architecture.
It was built in 1845 and remained intact for 160 years.
The cellar, the ground-floor winter rooms and the upstairs-summer rooms were a point of reference of the village history.
It was the central and tallest building dominating the old village square (Mesochori).
It was an all-purpose store at its time.
It was a tailor's, a butcher's, a barber's and also the grocer's of the village, till the early 1970's.
At that time the building was abandone... Until it started "breathing" again.
It was a great satisfaction for us to restore the crumbling building and moreover to refurbish it in congruence with its surroundings.

Within walking distance you'll see the enormous rocks, monasteries, chapels, paths small woods. Kastraki, the village, lies in the west of Meteora and is amphitheatrically built among enormous rocks. Uphill in the east part of the village you will see the old picturesque quarters of the village. Further uphill you'll see the "Adrachti" (sprindle), named after its shape. Kastraki is an international attraction for rock climbers and hikers.

Kastaki is unique for its long tradition in folk culture.
It's a great experience for a visitor to walk in the narrow cobbled streets of the old part of the village, to visit the chapels and monasteries.

The location of the place is great with amazing view of Meteora and the breakfast was a feast every morning. However it's not easy to find the place at the beginning with the limited information we got from airbnb and the host; no exact address or direction from the host who didn't response to my inquiry about driving direction sent the day before our arrival. Luckily we found the name "Guesthose Petrino" from an Airbnb review left by a previous guest and managed to get to the place with some help from the friendly local folks. Upon our arrival at 7 pm, we had to call our host who then sent his old mother to help us check in, the old lady was very kind with great hospitality. We were a bit disappointed with the room as it's too small for us with our 2 luggages, no fire place so it's chilly to sleep in at night and barely no wifi signal in the room. The balcony with the amazing view isn't in the room but in the public area and we were told by the hostess the larger room with balcony was taken already and our room is "exactly" the same with another room in terms of room type and rate. Although the room wasn't as good as what we expected, the place is indeed a great place to stay if you want to explore Meteora and all the 6 monasteries.

When we got off the train in Kalabaka, we discovered that we had no exact address and didn't realize the place is known locally as Guesthouse "Petrino," so no cab would give us a ride. We had no idea where to go and no way of reaching the host. We ended up hiking the 2km or so from Kalabaka to Kastraki, dragging our luggage with backpacks on our backs, and finally figured out where the place was. I don't know what we would have done without the help of a young Greek woman who walked with us and asked people for help. That was a bad beginning. However, the site is beautiful, the breakfasts were wonderful, and the cook was very kind and friendly. We loved Meteoron and were glad we stayed in Kastraki. Be warned that the walk from the village up to the house is very steep and strenuous--a workout. But as I said, we (my son, 26, and me, 62) ended up glad that we stayed here. Visitors should be sure to take the VisitMeteora "Sunset Tour" which will pick you up at the house. There's an office in the village center right across from a wonderful taverna.

An absolutely great (URL HIDDEN) Kastraki; right next to Kalabaka and right under the rocks formations of Meteora. Christos' Petrino Lodge is authentic and very nice. Comfortable rooms, pleasant surroundings and because of its unique location, a bit hard to find at first....but Christo solved that problem by coming to meet us at the Taverna Paramythi in Kalabaks and guiding us to the front door of her excellent B&B.
