Pleasant apartment with garden in Konitsa
Posted Jul 5, 2014
These attractive, compact, well equipped self catering apartments are close to the picturesque old bridge of Konitsa, in the lower part of the town. They have good wifi, a friendly owner, a lovely garden, balconies in three directions ( first floor apartment) and good parking. They are is easy to find if you start from the river bridge which crosses the main E 90 (local road number 20) at the south end of the town. Going north, take the first right, signposted to Health Centre and old bridge and then turn immediately right ( no more than 20m), with a wooden signpost saying Artemis in Greek letters ( a bit like APTEMIZ); you can then see the apartment block after about 30m on your left- it is the pink two storey building with wooden shutters and tables outside. lat/ long coordinates; N 40.04103; E 020.74327; at 452m above sea level. If approaching from the North by pass the town and go down to the bridge first. It is a 2 km walk uphill along a zig zagging residential road to the pleasant town centre with restaurants, and shops. The inside decor is a little dated, but it is very clean, well maintained and equipped. We struggled to find the place with google maps and asked at a garage, whose helpful staff guided us on their motorbike and phoned the owner, who arrived in less than 5 minutes. Buy petrol here as it can be hard to get elsewhere if travelling onwards.
