The Mont Parnes hotel, hanging at an elevation of 1055 meters on top of picturesque mount Parnitha, was one of the most interesting buildings of its era. The magnificent inauguration was carried out in 1961, with the presence of the prime Minister at that time, Constantinos Karamanlis who took the initiative for the hotel’s construction.
The hotel’s operation started initially under the authority of HTO (Hellenic Tourism Organization), but during the ‘60s its management changed many times with limited success. The status changed dramatically in 1971 when the first Greek Casino was built at the Mont Parnes facilities operating together with a hotel.
The ‘70s was the golden era of Mont Parnes with exceptional guests, an aristocratic atmosphere and glittering, luxurious facilities.
