Hello all, after doing some research and reading numerous posts, I still in need of advise for our first few days in Greece...On Friday, October 3, my husband is picking me up by car, around five in the afternoon in Athens airport. We are driving to Meteora area, where we'll stay in Kastaki for four nights, starting October 4, visiting Ioannina, Metsovo and of course Meteora monasteries.
Now to my questions: On the way to Kastraki, we are looking for an off the beaten path place to spend an evening, stay overnight and perhaps the better part of the next day. We love the mountains and the sea. I was thinking of Lamia area. Have a hard time choosing between Kamena Vourla and Stilida. Or maybe there are other small villages to spend the night? Driving small or mountain roads is not a problem (originally from Europe).
