What I loved most in Montanema

Montanema handmade village undoubtedly is a unique hotel. A wonderful place surrounded by virgin nature. There are many things you can adore in your stay there. From the luxury homes with modern fireplaces, the spring water who running in your tap, the wonderful staff, the excellent food in Fournia restaurant or the Irema cafe. But what I liked most in Montanema are small details in architecture and decoration that really touch me, and some of these I want to present to you with my photos.

Plastiras Lake Ride

The Montanema handmade village located very close to Plastiras Lake. So you can combine the stay in the hotel with lake activities .

The other members of TBG preferred horse riding. My ride was photographic.

The landscape on the northern side of Plastiras Lake is magical. The mountains on the horizon are still snowy, while horses graze on fress grass waiting for the guests.

Montanema handmade village Sunrise

I am thinking that you can not feel deeply a place if you not see the sun rise at least once. I know it’s hard to get up early, while not yet dawn and search from which side the sun rises but believe me it’s worth it.

At least in my trip to Montanema handmade village to look at the sunrise was easy. The sun just comes forward in the ravine that is in front of the complex.

It is one of the few times that I enjoyed the sunrise and I was not in a beach. But the Montanema landscape was marvelous and so was the sunrise.

TBG trip in Montanema handmade village

24-27 of April 2015, i was invited along with other members of Travel Bloggers Greece in a fantastic place in Karditsa. At Montanema Hand Made Village. The complex is located in the heart of a mountain just 4.5 km from the northern end of Plastiras lake.

The scenery was magical and we had a fabulous time with  my friends of TBG. The four days in Montanema reminded me several times a summer in the village of my great-grandfather in Tzoumerka Mountains.

But the similarities stop at the landscape as Montanema is certainly a forest village that has been built with absolute respect for nature and natural stone materials and wood, but offers comfort and luxury that a mountain village didnt had back in the 70s.

I will try with some posts and of course a lot of images to convey to you how we spent these 4 days in Montanema Handmade Village. If you are looking for a place to relax and get in touch with nature, if you want to experience a different face of Greece with great hospitality, then Montanema is the perfect place for you.
