Guest Inn is the first Greek network of selected traditional rural accommodations. The Guest Inn concept applies to travelers who are in search of unique holiday; to those who appreciate the natural countryside and its beautiful landscapes; and to those who are drawn to the adventure of discovering new places and people - away from “the madding crowds” of tourists. What makes Guest Inn unique in Greece is that the network of rural accommodations combines the highest quality standards of hospitality and accommodations with an exceptional experience, wherever you choose to stay in the mountain or by the sea or both.
