Epirus

epirus greece hotels

The region of Epirus, on the northwest coast of Greece is perfect for people who want to combine the sun, the sea, wonderful landscapes and local culture. It is well known that this region has the best natural surroundings  in all of Greece. The combination of green mountains and blue sea is beautiful.  Inland there is also a lot of cultural and historical sightseeing to do. Epirus is shaped by the Pindus mountain range which gradually sweeps down westward towards the Ionion Sea. The highest point is 2600 meters, where you will find the Vikos-Aoos National Park. Deep valleys such as the well-known Vikos Gorge are crossed by rivers like the Kalama and Acheronta, famed for their natural beauty.

Epirus is divided into four prefectures Ioannina, Arta, Preveza and Thesprotia. We are in the Thesprotia, here the coastline has a few steep beaches and many large and small bays, this region of Greece is justifiably known as 'Thesprotia of good ports'.
Igoumenitsa is the capital of the region and is today one of the most important harbours, not only in Greece, but also in Europe.
