Karellis Photos

Looking due east from the Karellis (1,600 meters) at sunset.


Playing tennis in front of rugged alpine peaks. I couldn't stop thinking how these mountains reminded me of 'my' mountains - the San Gabriels in southern California.


The top half of the village.


A useful signpost planted in the middle of the village.


Climbing through the trees.


Doing flips on the 'aero-trampoline'.


Surveying the ski slopes 1,000 meters above the Karellis.


Riding the ski lift back down the mountain.


 The heart of the village where you go to buy the important things like pizza, postcards and fresh baguettes.



The pool is open from 10am to 12:30pm and 2:00pm to 6:30pm. You can buy a one-week pass for 12 euros and swim as much as you want.


During the last night of our stay, the pool was open exceptionally from 8 to 11pm. The water is kept at a constant 80°F, but with the outside air temperature in the low 50s, coming out of the pool after your swim can be a chilly affair.
