Welcome to the website of Hotel Porfyron

Porfyron means purple and hotel Porfyron stands like a red beacon between the grey, natural stone built houses of the picturesque village of Ano Pedina. This is one of the 46 still occupied Zagoria villages in the Epiros, situated in the north western region of Greece, 35 kilometres north of Ioannina.

This pleasant hotel was built in 1850 as a doctor’s residence and was later used as a girls’ school. It has eight spacious, tastefully furnished rooms. Each room has been named after a famous mountain top in Greece. During the restoration of the building, the original character has been preserved as much as possible. Fretwork ceilings dating back 150 years still adorn the entrance and can also be found upstairs. All rooms have a shower and toilet (2 rooms have a Jacuzzi bath) and most of the rooms also have a fireplace. 

The owners, Jiannis en Rita Kirligitsis, attach much value to the Greek tradition and give their guests a warm welcome, making sure they feel at home. In the hotel’s restaurant, the owners prepare fresh regional dishes daily (also catering for the vegetarians) with ingredients from their own garden or the surrounding countryside. Most of the bread is homemade and Rita’s favourite pursuit is making jams, marmalades and liqueurs. You will find them in several special flavours such as elderberry and chanterelle. Jiannis also makes his own red wine and sipero (raki). 
You can taste the delicious homemade jams with the extensive breakfast.

The village of Ano Pedina is lovely and quiet and is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding countryside. Zagoria is a fantastic area for both short and long distance walks with flora and fauna of a rare and unknown beauty.

We are sure that you will feel comfortable here at the hotel Porfyron, many of our guests have enjoyed their visit so much that they like to return regularly.

We wish you a pleasant stay - we will always do our best for you!
