Lila and Pavlos, tore up our university degrees and abandoned the big city’s lifestyle. We left Athens a few years ago, choosing Kato Pedina (or Soudena as it was the village’s name in the past) to be our new home.
The plan was right from the beginning to create a “modern” guesthouse.
Thus, we created Anemi (Spinning Wheel in english) hoping to become something more than a guesthouse. A place where interesting people will share interesting ideas!
We renovated an old cottage to create the place of our dreams and now we are very proud and happy to share it with you!
Anemi consists of 7 guest rooms, the “magirio” (the old house’s kitchen room) and the farm and it overlooks the highlands of Zagori.
It is a village house!
On the ground floor, where the family’s farm animals were kept in the past, there are two guest rooms: “Karina” (Keel, a reference to our beloved sea!) and the stone room called “Roka” (Distaff), both built on a rock.
On the first floor we find our “baby” room “Anemidi” (Little Spinning Wheel), “Rodani” (another word for the Spinning Wheel) and “Tylichtra” ( ). All three rooms are painted with similar colors as they were before, the old house’s colors. The green, the blue and the yellow room.
“Adrachti” (Spindle) and “Saita” (Shuttle) rooms are on the second floor, having their own private veranda. Adrachti’s colors are a tribute to Zagori’s autumn colors that we love! We leave the internal shutters (the “kanatia” as called in the local dialect) of Saita’s eight windows open to allow the light to fill the room.
Each one of Anemi’s rooms is not only comfortable but also unique, turning your stay in Zagori (also known as Zagorohoria) to a fairytale experience!
