The Building

The hotel is situated on the ex-Anyfanti residence. It used to be a typical wealthy Arcadian mansion of the 1840’s and it sets itself as an example of the local architecture. On the ground floor, there used to be the weaving business of the family and a textiles shop. On the back yard they used to paint the textiles and fabrics whilst on the entresol and floor it was the family’s house. During the years of the Greek War of Independence in 1821, the ground floor was used as a storage space for saltpeter that was supplied to the locals of Dimitsana in order to produce gunpowder.

The building has been fully restored according to its original plans and has been converted into a hotel by the Greek architect Giannis Kizis. Elements such as the well designed quoins, the fortress-like windows, the stone dome on the ground floor, the wooden balconies and the wooden ceilings with local patterns and designs will most definitely introduce you to the Arcadian architectural style. The building is regarded as a local treasure.

The Legacy

The legacy was established in 1947 by Panagiotis Lyberopoulos, a doctor from Zatouna who left with his will all his property to the local municipality in order to fulfill his life-long dream of building a hotel in Zatouna village. After 69 whole years, with great efforts and many struggles, under the Presidency of Ioannis Charal. Bitounis (President of the Lyberopoulos Legacy Committee ), Lyberopoulos’ vision came true, between the years 2005 -2016.
