Metsovo: The ideal backdrop for an authentic holiday season in Greece

Metsovo is nestled on the slopes of Pindos at an altitude of 1,200 meters and creates the ideal backdrop for an authentic holiday season in Greece. Together with skiers and locals, you will raise your glasses with fiery wine from Katogi Averoff, enjoy delicious meats cooked in the coals and feel the true Christmas bliss next to the fireplace overlooking the snowy scenery.

Here, the unrivaled beauty of nature, which stretches from the mountains of Pindos, the fir-covered forests and the running waters of Metsovitikos River, the traditional stone houses, the smell of the fireplace, the frozen fresh air in the face, the taste of metsovone cheese and the red wine from Katogi Averof at one of the restaurants in the square, they will all revive your senses and wake you up from the lethargy of the city.
