Castelli Olive Press

“The best choice for the most genuine and alternative holidays”
The guest house is the first one of the eight houses one can find while reaching the linear agglomeration of Fourni. Fourni is a very small village, at the north hillsides of mount Pantokratoras, 10 minutes distance from the nearest town and beach of Acharavi.
Castelli Olive Press was my family’s small home olive press, serving, also, the nearby houses of the village of Fourni. The building was built 150 years ago and was covering the needs of the village, until new contemporary units of processing olives appeared in the area, about 50 years ago. Then, the only thing left was the “screw”, which the people started to use it for making their wine. At the same time, a part of this small building was storage and a stable of our family.
Nowadays, we renovated the building using traditional building methods and maintaining the old massive stone walls. So, the house now is completely restored and fully renovated, turned into a comfortable and charming house for four people.
The house is landscaped and decorated with a lot of personal attention and care. It is 50sqm with two bedrooms. It has an open living room -with a sofa-bed for two people-, a fully equipped kitchen and a dining corner. There is, also, a bathroom and a truly bright and lovely double-bed bedroom.
“ The sunset from the property is extraordinary!! ”
Around the house there is a nice courtyard for someone to relax, eat, drink, read, play games, or just watch the beautiful sunset and the breathtaking view. Also, one can enjoy the small pool, a level higher than the first courtyard, the site of which culminates charm, tranquility and beauty of the landscape.
