Where you’ll be

Τρίγωνο, Ήπειρος Δυτική Μακεδονία, Greece

The home is located right in the middle of many fantastic places of the wider region. The Prespa Lakes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Prespa) is a natural park of great significance due to its biodiversity and endemic species. Prespa is a transboundary park shared between Greece, Albania and North Macedonia. It only takes a few moments for the receptive visitor to see that they have arrived at a place with its own unique personality. Prespa is for those who love nature and outdoor activities all year round. This is a place to be appreciated with all the senses, as if it had been designed to draw us in, and remind us that we, too, are a part of nature.

The Pisoderi/Vigla ski resort (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pisoderi) is for skiing and snowboarding, there are 11.1 km of slopes available. 5 lifts transport the guests. The winter sports area is situated between the elevations of 1,650 and 2,000 m. The Vigla's chalet and restaurant host their guests in a spacious environment and provide all necessary equipment and support.

30 minutes to go to the city of Florina (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florina) and 30 minutes to the city of Kastoria (http://www.visitgreece.gr/en/main_cities/kastoria) with a stop at the deserted villages of Gavros and Ano Kraniona (http://www.greece.com/destinations/Macedonia/Kastoria/Settlement/Ano_Kranionas.html).

Take a daytrip to the village of Nymfaio (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nymfaio) with the traditional local architecture, the Arcturos bear santuary (https://www.arcturos.gr/en/), which you can reach in 90 minutes as well as Lechovo with its recently inaugurated Paths of Peace (https://www.pathsofgreece.gr/en/portfolio-items/paths-of-peace/). A visit to Nestorio and hiking on the Grammos hill (https://www.hostel-alexandros.gr/mountain-forest-walks-climbing/?lang=en) is also an hour away.

1 hour to go to the Albanian city of Korytsa (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kor%C3%A7%C3%AB) and 1 hour to the North Macedonian city of Bitola (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitola).

I am originally from Vienna, Austria but I am living in Greece for the last 30 years. I spent 7 years in Athens, 3 years in Thessaloniki, 15 in Prespa and the last years I am mostly in Thessaloniki.
In 1997 I visited Prespa for the first time and I was fascinated by the beauty of the region, the quiet, colorful landscape and the feeling of being allowed to be still for a moment or longer.
In 1998 I moved there, built the house in 1999 and in 2000 I established an NGO together with a group of people living here. Until 2014 the organisation organized a lot of youth, cultural and educational activities and was involved as well in tourism and cross-border programs.
After 2014 I worked for the establishment of cooperation between Greek and German local authorities and knowhow transfer between them.
I miss the everyday life of Prespa. Where you easily forget which day of the week it is and where the contact with nature is still pure.
