We all love the quaint white marble houses of Santorini, Mykonos, and the often-overlooked Paros, but Greece is so much more than these Cyclades villages. The orange-roofed houses of Arachova was an unexpected find.
Nestled at the foot of Mount Parnassus, the village is set on a dreamy mountainous setting overlooking a valley dotted with green olive trees.
As you walk through the narrow pedestrian streets, you discover small monasteries and churches like St. John Church below.
Every corner of the village is just begging to be explored. And the size of the village is just ideal… not too small that you get bored of it fast, but also not too big that it overwhelms you. Everything comes just in the right dose here in Arachova.
At times, you don’t quite feel like you’re in Greece, but in an evergreen Switzerland village.
So much beauty oozes from this quiet little town. If you’re on your way to Delphi, make sure you make a stopover at Arachova, or maybe even a stay a night here!
