The area Monodendri, Zagori and Ioannina

Monodendri is one of the most beautiful villages of Zagori. It is built in an altitude of 1060 meters, 39 km from Ioannina city. The name of the village is from a big tree that existed until 1840. Until 1753, it was a community with three neighbourhoods (Vitsa, Ano Mahalas, Agios Georgios). The local benefactors of the village helped Monodendri to obtain during 17th and 18th centuries schools, stone built manor-houses and churches. Rizari brothers come from Monodendri.


Today, Monodendri is a tourist destination for visitors not only from Greece but also from abroad, during all the year. We await you at our Hotel Arhontiko Zarkada to enjoy a really pleasant stay.
