Rock because I am the spitting image of my mother. I think like she does. Revolutionary and different. Dandy because I am beautiful and classy like my dad calls me. I am gonna be your ''man'' but in a dog's shape! I will accommodate you in my(our) house and I will do anything possible to satisfy any demand of hospitality. I want to see you and feel you being happy. I can accommodate up to six (6) persons. All adults I mean. If you happen to have any kids who I totally adore, I can accommodate one more, meaning seven (7). My house is 85 square meters, it may seem small to you, but I promise that it is very functional. It consists of three levels: ground floor, floor, attic. Some of you may feel comfortable to stay in the attic which obtains 2 double beds, while others in the downstairs bedroom with the sauna. Now that we are talking about the sauna- feel free to use it- I am sure that it will offer you relaxation, it will detox you from everything that may concern you and it will act beneficially to your body and soul. You will feel very cool, cheerful. As for me, you will see me waiting for you by the doorstep, like a good host. I will be very happy to see you!

Area description: Rock Dandy is an independent stone-built villa in a complex of similar houses named ''Prosilion'', since it is ''showered'' with the sun's light all day long. It is located 1 km away from the city of Arachova and 6-7 km from Delphi, which can also be admired from the house's 2 balconies and the external porch. It is fully equipped with three double beds in the attic and a bedroom, a bathroom with a hydromassage cabin, a wc, a sunny living room with a kitchen, two balconies and a porch with an amazing view at the Oracle of
Delphi, Itea, the mountains all around. Here, you live among the clouds, without having to dream. You live in a dream, but in real life. The house is equipped with hi-fi, televisions of the latest type, an electric kitchen, a microwave oven, air conditions, a fireplace, a toaster, a boiler and all kinds of cookware, a sauna and hydromassage cabin for those who seek for relaxation and detox 100%. We are located at the best spot of Arachova, so close that it takes 10 minutes of walking to get to the centre, and yet decenentralized, without having to worry about traffic and limited parking lots. Depending on the season, your transportation towards Arachova can be made either by car or on foot. For any other close, or not, destination, a car is necessary. There are lots of activities in the area, such as skiing and horseback riding, mountain bikes, downhill and race, which make this destination an ideal one. Amazing scenery, beautiful forest roads, steep cliffs, stony and difficult paths offer numerous ways for you to escape. The unique architecture that combines modern and traditional aspect, coexist in Arachova. Arachova, is located at an altitude of 950m in the mountain Parnassos and, is the most famous winter Greek resort to visit. Parnassos ski resort is 17 km away, while Iniochos and Pan are 9 - 10 km respectively. The nearest airport is Nea Anchialos National Airport, situated 84 km away, whine the biggest airport in Greece, Eleftherios Venizelos in Athens is 160 km far away from Arachova. Arachova is one of the most popular destinations in Greece and justifiably, we might add. It is ‘’blessed’’ by history, which still remains intact through the years. Tradition matches perfectly with the cosmopolitan lifestyle that was adapted recently. Below are some ‘’must-sees’’ of the area: - The central road: it’s the village’s only road. Park your car and admire the traditional taverns, the cobbled streets and the fancy stores. - The ‘’Clock’’ : Do not miss out the breathtaking view. You can see the whole village from above. - Church of Saint George – Egkarsios: In order to get to the church, provide yourselves with super comfortable shoes, take a deep breath and count 264 steps (!). And there, at the village’s top, the church of Saint George dominates, who is also the village’s Saint. - The Folk Museum of Arachova: It was one of the first schools founded in Greece. In 2009 it was declared as a conservation monument and was restored in order to highlight Arachova’s unique textile art. - ‘’Lakka’’ and ‘’Papaioannou’’ squares: Literally Arachova’s meeting points. Cafes, taverns, gift shops, restaurants, night clubs- all at your disposal to admire and go around. Other close destinations,that require a car are of course Parnassos Ski Center with the beautiful chalet, the Oracle of Delphi, Itea, Galaxidi and many more. You will be left speechless with the beauty and the history. Just bring your best mood! With all of the above mentioned characteristics and the strong history behind them, who wouldn't want to visit Arachova and Delphi? Therefore, we welcome you to the ''heroic'' world of Rock Dandy. Other things to note: At first, Rock Dandy will welcome you and then an associate of ours will hand you the key and guide you through the house's functions. We are at your disposal any time of the day to solve any matter that comes up. During your stay at the house, you will have to inform us whether you intend to use the fireplace and how often, in
order to provide you with the corresponding amount of wood. Please inform us on time, if possible.
