The loft maisonette apartment, has two beds on the upper floor and another sofa bed in the lower floor, where also the fully equipped kitchen and bathroom is. It is spacious and bright. It has central heating and A/C, Right outside it's entrance there is a small patio, full of flowers and a a set of wooden outdoors chairs and tables that you may use.It also has a little balcony.
The apartment is part of a traditional guesthouse, where you feel the authentic Macedonian hospitality, the warm, home-inspired atmosphere; you see the people’s genuine smile.
The classic but at the same time traditional aesthetic is around you wherever you look, with its sense of wood and stone.
The sitting room, just like the sitting room back home, is designed to offer all the comforts and relaxation we so much need; it is meant for bringing us closer.
The smell of freshly home-baked pies and desserts spreads out from the guesthouse main kitchen.
At the patio, we enjoy breakfast and the evening tea or coffee.
From the play room, we hear the children laughing, happy that they can enjoy their own separate space which has been specially designed with play equipment suitable for all ages.
…about the location and around
Goumenissa, is centrally located at the ‘heart’ of Macedonia, Northwest of Thessalonica, right next to a plethora beautiful but ‘secret’ lands.
Mount Paiko, dotted with traditional villages, green up to the summit, empties some of its numerous springs down to the central square of the traditional town, with the huge perennial plane trees.
The surrounding landscape is of unique beauty. The successive rolling vineyard hills at the roots of Paiko create scenery difficult to describe in words.
The guesthouse is right off the center of the town where you may find some very good tavernas and restaurants and also small kebab stores, crepes and pizza places.
Public transport will drop you 200m off the guesthouse and there is an hourly bus service from Thessaloniki.
We may organize, mountain walks, show you cycle routes and provide you with bicycles, show you around the local wineries, take you to waterfalls and lakes for swimming, all these for a small fee. It is much better though, if you have your own means of transport to cover bigger distances up in mount Paiko, although many of the attractions are on walking distance from the guesthouse.
Autumn and Winter in Paiko offer to the voyagers a feast
of colours. The aromas and flavors of local wine and raki (tsipouro) are tempting guests to taste them in any of the local wineries. The sound of the renowned ‘Goumenissa Brass Band’ (Chalkina of Goumenissa) reverberates and blends with the landscape.
Spring and Summer in Paiko await to welcome the travelers under the shade of oaks, chestnut trees and planes, along the forest trails; by the brooks and numerous waterfalls.
A journey for all those who seek quiet lands, unspoilt by the many, authentic hospitality and a genuine smile…
