Chalets are decorated with timeless charm fitting the surroundings, with furniture made of wood and iron, handmade woolen kilims and COCO-MAT natural fiber mattresses. All have a LED TV, mini-bar, private safe, en suite bathroom and complimentary Wi-Fi.
Our Rooms are all named after relatives or associates of Pyrrhus, the King of Epirus. The Chalets are individually built stone and timber houses on two levels with a private internal staircase. The upper level houses the main bedroom which is furnished with a four-poster double bed or two twin beds and a bathroom. The ground floor is equipped with cooking facilities, has an open fire, bathroom, sitting area and dining table with stools. The sofa and the pouf can be converted into beds, comfortably accommodating a family of two adults and three children. We value the rapid expansion of the sharing economy and hence, have designed our hotel in a way to include common spaces for people to gather, which encourage the trend of co-existing and co-living. We therefore, believe that connecting with other people, gaining new experiences and discovering new destinations is an important aspect of today’s busy society.
The initial stone house was built in the 18th century (1730) and belonged to the Noutsos Family. During this time it was used as a permanent residence. What is now the restaurant housed the kitchen and sheltered the family’s livestock. The reception area housed the living room and the bedrooms. The cellar which can be seen through the glass floor in the reception area was used for storing and maturing the family’s cheese, which was made from the village’s milk as well as their own wine. Many of the articles decorating Hotel Princess Lanassa date back to that period of time. The house was handled down from generation to generation. During the Second World War it became the permanent residence of Anna and Dimitrios whose main residence, in the city of Ioannina, had been requisitioned by the Italian invading Forces. It became their sanctuary away from the bombings and the Italian and subsequent German occupation. Aristotelis, the son of Dimitrios donated the house in 1960 to the community. At that time, the village was almost uninhabited with only the old remaining. The young had all left to find work in the cities. He subsequently rescinded the donation in 1976, due to the general poverty of the area, the community’s lack of funds and its inability to make the necessary repairs to upkeep the building. He therefore, made the necessary repairs himself and kept the house in the family. From then onwards, it was used as a holiday home, a healthy mountain retreat away from the hot summers of city life. In 1996, the house was declared by the Greek National Tourism Organisation as an Example of the Vernacular Traditional Architecture of the area. In 1999, the stone house was restored and a new section was constructed to open its doors to the public, as Hotel Princess Lanassa in April of 2001. The hotel took its name after the second wife of King Pyrrhos of Epirus.

The perfect place for a getaway. The hotel is a hidden gem off the beaten path, tastefully decorated, and offering any accommodation you might need to relax. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast comprises if a myriad of choices. The home- cooked local pies are to die for. There is a swimming pool( working from 11:30 to 7), tennis court, football court, gym. The hotel is easily accessible and there are enough parking spaces, just mind that it may be a bit tricky to park as it's on a slope and there is stone, which may be slippery. There is a free parking at the beginning of the village, which is perfect.

Firstly the location of the hotel is great, since it is conveniently located within close proximity to Ioannina while at the same time being at the edge of the Tzioumerka region. A tranquil, peaceful place with amazing dining options, and excellent views over the mountains! If it wasnt for the clogged bathroom drains of our room (important to note that the hosts were ready to find a solution relating to this problem and accommodated us by providing an alternative room for the night), we would have given a five star. The place is really really nice!
