The story behind ‘’Dorothea's Stone House in the forest’’
Dorothea Panagiotou is a nature lover and a lifelong learner.
A few decades ago, when she first visited Asprogeia she felt immediately a connection: with the people, the location, and the surrounding nature.
Her love for this location led her to buy this historical stone cottage, approx. 100 years old and create ‘’Dorothea’s Stone House in the forest’’.
A ‘’home away from home’’ holiday accommodation operating since 2017.
Creative workshops, decoupage and furniture restoration, hiking, mountain excursions, and herbs picking are some of the activities offered by Dorothea and her family, generously and with respect to the natural environment.
This wonderful country stone cottage is pet-friendly and available from April to October.
