With some of the best views in the area and a convenient location next to the Meteora rocks, a drink on the terrace at Doupiani House affords timeless views of the unusual landscape. The hotel is set at the edge of the town just under a huge rock. Its garden, filled with lilacs, roses and jasmine, makes a great place to catch the sunrise over the Meteora rocks.
Inside, you’re greeted with a cheerful reception area which is traditional in style with dark woods and ceramic flooring, stone walls and a large fireplace. There is also an inviting bar area. There are 30 rooms, all decorated in a similar traditional style but with modern amenities including Wi-Fi and air conditioning. Many rooms have balconies with views of the renowned rocks or the valley below.
During the colder months, breakfast is served inside whereas during warmer months it’s served in the garden with its fragrant flowers and fruit and vegetable plants. Ingredients for breakfast are organically sourced, with most coming from the hotel garden and local village.
We chose the Doupiani House Hotel for its great location and warm, welcoming atmosphere. The lovely village of Kastraki is a great base for exploring the monasteries of Meteora.
