We created a cabin for nature lovers, renovating an old building with great respect to its history and natural environment (olive grove).
This building takes us far back in time, to the time of the Lombard ruler Charles Tocquevos. According to Venetian sources, hence the name of the era, from Aetolia to Carelli. We left the ancient stonework untouched as a background, as a backdrop for the fireplace. It was probably a military outpost to guard the ancient roads of Aetolia and the ancient roads of the activities in the lagoon (fish farms, salt pans). Then there was the tower of Anatoliko (Aetoliko), with its outposts, at the time of the naval battle of Lepanto (Echinades islands). The Italian historian Paolo Paruta refers to Messolonghi as a fish farm (Peschere), in 1515.
On the ancient trade routes of Aetolia, the present-day roads (National Road, National Road of Etruscany) were carved from the ancient trade routes of the Aegina region, Antirrio – Ioannina and the Ionian Road. We have preserved a very old mulberry tree from the era of sericulture. The area produced excellent silk, better than that of Persia according to the famous Turkish traveller Evliya Celebi (1668). Today in its shade, our visitors enjoy its coolness and near the ancient well,terpsichoreans enjoy the excellent local dishes.
We are located at the foot of Arakynthos the historic Libra of the thieves during the revolutionary times of 1821, where you can easily find yourself hiking (a purely hiking mountain). You can also take a tour of the ancient ruins (Parapente). Mycenaean cities (Plevrona – Alikyrna – Kalydona and Oiniades, where the only surviving ancient Neossoikos is preserved. We are located between the river Evinos, where the ancient centaur Nessos was buried. Recently a botanical garden was created there, open to visitors.
Garden and the floating Acheloos with its large delta, for many interesting excursions.
In front of us there is the lagoon of Messolonghi – Aitolikou, ideal field for canoeing – kayaking, bird watching and swimming in the Patraikos Gulf (Tourlis), as well as Kryoneri where the excellent climbing field (Varasova).
Unforgettable, of course, will be your tour in our Holy City (Archaeological Museum, Art Gallery, Historical Museum “Dixodos”, Salt Museum, House of Charilaou Trikoupis, House of Kostis Palamas, etc.)
The cabin has a capacity for 14 people.
You can use the shared kitchen to prepare your meal. However, you can have all your culinary needs on site by arrangement with the host.
