Travelling has changed my life in the past few years in so many ways. I've learned to acknowledge those precious moments of relaxation, the days away from work that don't involve any airport hussle. During a period of intense stress and anxiety, I was introduced to a magical place right in the middle of Parnassos forest - well-hidden, two hours away from the city buzz.
Welcome to Elatos Resort & Health Club!
I found my private oasis deep inside the snowy forest of mountain Parnassos on an altitude of 1300 meters. The wooden, Finnish-style chalet is on perfect sync with the natural habitat, perfectly located on a dreamy part of the forest. The view from the room to the snowy forest was breathtaking, it featured a private fireplace, a warm and cozy down-to-earth design and can perfectly accommodate two person – with room for two more guests if necessary.
The hotel features 39 independent wooden chalets with their construction being in perfect balance with the natural environment; an amalgam of stone and Finnish wood, ideal for the cold climate of the Parnassos area. Apart from the chalets, the Resort features a main building – the Club House – where the reception and the restaurant - serving an American-style buffet breakfast and dinner - are both located.
A private church, as well as in-house catering, are available for weddings and baptisms inside the evergreen forest!
I shared my unforgettable experience at Elatos Resort with you on INSTAGRAM, through the live stories and a few all-white photos I posted on my feed!

A fully-equiped gym, a TV lounge, a massage cabin, billiard a lovely Cafe Bar and a Mini Club to keep children entertained and happy are also available at the Resort. If you love sports like trekking, mountain bike, hiking, horse riding, archery or off-the-road routes, you will definitely be thrilled!

Ideal for a romantic getaway or a family trip away from the city.
Elatos Spa by Apivita
Your wellness experience won't be complete without a beauty treatment. Join the Elatos Spa by Apivita for a fully rejuvenating treatment after the fitness activities.
Face and body treatments for men and women are available, as well as massage and reflexology sessions completing an invigorating experience the best way possible. The spa services are offered both at the Club House or at your chalet (with a small extra fee) with natural products from the holistic beauty experience by Apivita.
Of course I had to experience it myself!
All of the above sound perfect as one could say.
To make things even better though, Elatos Resort made sure our little canine friend, Fidel, had the perfect stay too. Everyone travelling with their pets know how difficult a hotel stay can be and how important it is for their little friends to be treated as equals when on vacation or long weekends.
So, except for being super family-friendly, Elatos Resort is super pet-friendly too! Fidel was more than welcome and loved from everyone at the hotel, feeling more loved than ever. While pets are not allowed at the restaurant, the Bar and the wellness areas (pool, massage cbain etc.), they are more than welcome at the lovely lounge, next to the reception, allowing you to enjoy your coffee (or breakfast) sharing their company.
Plus, you can enjoy your breakfast, lunch or dinner at your chalet with the exquisite room service offered with your beloved pet! There could not be a better ending to an amazing experience!
