Informations
Population: 4.180
Description: Arachova is a picturesque mountain town in the Boeotia prefecture located at an altitude of 960 meters ( 3,150 feet) on the southern slopes of Mount Parnassus. The population of the municipality including the surrounding villages exceeds 4,000 residents and the majority of the locals is associated with tourism businesses. Arachova is one of the leading and most popular winter destinations in Greece. It attracts thousands of skiers, visitors and winter sports enthusiasts as it offers a range of interesting options and all at a relatively short distance from the capital city of Athens. Due to the cosmopolitan side of the area, as it is preferred by many celebrities for the winter getaways, it could easily be compared with the best known European ski resorts, but in any case not neglect the cultural heritage and traditional values of the local area. It is also a historical point as a heroic place where during the Greek independence war Georgios Karaiskakis (Greek Army commander) fought and defeated the army of Moustafabei (Ottoman commander). You can reach Arachova in the northwestern part of the prefecture Boeotia within 160 km (100 miles) from Athens and certainly the picturesque scenery and the helpfulness of the locals will make your stay truly memorable.
