The hostel Elisson is an agro-tourism enterprise of people living in the mountainous village of Kryoneri Korinthias. It is the fulfilment of a dream that became reality in 2006 with the support of European Agro-tourism Initiative LEADER+ and the Development Company of Northern Peloponnese. It is created with love and faith in the Greek rural development, and meets the need of public accommodation in the rural area of the Corinthian upland region. The hostel was built above the valley of the river Elisson, offering a large view over it. The architecture of the building - stone, timber, tile - is in complete harmony with the old traditional architecture of Kryoneri and with the natural landscape that surrounds it.
The hostel has five rooms with big verandas, a common living - room with fireplace and open kitchen, a small library with computers and a seminar and meeting room, as well as a nice green courtyard of 5 acres, with trees, grass, flowers and an organic vegetables garden.
The hostel offers hospitality to individual visitors, families, but also to groups. It can host meetings and campaigns organised by young people or students teams, naturalists, hiking and biking associations. They can enjoy their stay in a beautiful and relaxing environment, for training, recreation and cultural purposes. Also the building is planned in a way that helps to welcome elderly or disabled persons, thanks to slip roads and special bathrooms.
