Elatochori is located in Pieria municipality, just a few miles from the city of Katerini. With an imposing view to Mount Olympos, the picturesque village wears its snow-capped blanket and welcome travelers to a top winter destination in Greece. No wonder Zeus used to visit Elatochori (meaning Fir Village) to court with beautiful women, who would soon become his lovers. This is a place made out of dreams and fantasies, a retreat filled with serenity and natural beauty.
The village is set at an altitude of 850 meters from sea level and consists of two distinctive settlements. There is the Old Settlement (otherwise known as Skouterna) and the New Village. Both are charming and host supreme accommodation options for those seeking wintery fun and relaxation. At Elatochori, there is plenty to see and do besides the obvious gazing at the landscape! In close distance, the Monastery of Saint George and the Church of Saint Nicholas are exquisite attractions. Then, nature enthusiasts will be stunned by the Kremaston Waterfalls and the mountain shelters in the region. The Ancient Quarry and the Folkore Museum are also worth visiting during your stay at Elatochori.
Of course, special mention should be made to Elatochori Ski Resort. Boasting five lifts and ten tracks, this is just the place for snow sports lovers. The mountain top reaches 1,750 meters and this adds to the scenic view, as well as the edge for those appreciating a great slope for skiing and snowboarding! Whether you are a novice or a true professional, this resort offers immense fun! And apart from snow-covered activities, the chalet is equally breathtaking.
