Polydroso is a beautiful village at the north-western feet of Parnassus comprising of about one thousand inhabitants. The plateau which is formed in front of Polydroso, where the vineyard is situated, is surrounded by the mountains of Oeta, Giona and Kallidromo, creating thus an impressive landscape. Polydroso belongs to the administrative boundaries of Phocis prefecture with its capital Amfissa, which is less than a two-hour-distance from Athens and three from Thessaloniki.

The main feature of the area is the abundance of water. That is the main reason for the creation of a lush ecosystem with a high diversity in flora and fauna. It is no coincidence that this is the location of the National Park of Parnassus and the conservatory of wildlife, a contemporary natural reserve hosting large numbers of animals and plants.

Besides its natural beauty, history is also rich in the region of Polydroso, dating back to the era when Xerxes’ passing left his imprint in the area, as mentioned by the geographer and historian Pausanias, up to the Turkish occupation and to the very day.

In today’s region of Polydroso the main occupations of the inhabitants have to do with agriculture, livestock breeding, beekeeping, and logging, which bring self-sufficience on the everyday table of the local people. Furthermore, tourism and residential development in guesthouses have proven a very powerful tool for the economic development not only of the area of Polydroso, but also of the wider region of Parnassus.

The most important pole of development of the region is the skiing center of Parnassus that attracts the fans of winter tourism for endless hours of sliding down the slopes at the organized skiing center. In the region one can undertake other activities, such as hiking and mountain biking. Besides those, the area is ideal both for religious tourism, since there is a large number of churches and monasteries, as well as for theme tourism because of the existence of the mining park entitled 'Vagonetto', which takes the visitor on a journey to the history of bauxite ore-body mining.
