A 3 star hotel, family run with everything you need. The rooms are great, the owners helpful, interent access, restaurant and breakfast included for 45.00 euro a night. Again, we hit the low season so a different story had it been a lot more experience! My word, if your willing to drive 35 minutes to the bus station to pick us up and take us back to your hotel...that's winning by my books!

Just seemed a great waste of 65 Euros to book into a hotel at 04h30 in the morning and then get going about 5 hours later but at least i had a great sleep.
Finally at 9am I awoke and by the time i had breakfast and loaded the bike it was just after 10am.
I was heading for the town of Arta which via the long slow pass roads was about 100 miles in ...
... so we continued. After two miles the trail headed into heavy forest and then began to climb steeply. By now we had somehow caught up with the mule and its three handlers, learning about the stubbornness of mules. The trail had become so steep that the mule was reluctant to continue the climb. We kept a respectful distance so the handlers could coax the mule to the end of the trail and the monastery, which we finally did after about three miles altogether. At first we were ...
... village of Vradeto, and then continue another two kilometers to the stunning Beloi, or "good viewpoint", over the unbelievably vast Vikos Gorge. We easily located the trailhead with the help of a friendly workman in the village and happily started off on the trail we'd traveled so far to hike. After dropping steadily into a narrow gorge, we crossed yet another two stone bridges and reached the first of the Vradeto Stairs. These stairs were built in the 16th Century ...
... from the outside of the 600-year-old castle walls and settled in for a great meal. Taking our time enjoying the scene, by the time we finished Ioannina had gone all Sevilla on us and was throbbing with activity and the people parading before us were going up and down and we sometimes saw the same people two or even three times. This fun vibe was exciting and we knew we were onto something here in this vibrant city on the shore of Lake Pamvotis.
... even walk straight. It seems, thus, kind of annoying that we have to carry all our staff throughout the village, since you have to leave your car out of its center. The hosts of our traditional guesthouse, Stavraetos, seem gracious, but I am too tired to notice. So, when I wake up the next morning, there a lot of things that I am noticing for the first time. Like that the village is completely built in stone, on top of a mountain, facing a gorge. ...
