About us

Run away from everyday routine and dive into the peace of the mountain. This is where the birds’ songs and the herbs’ gentle aroma determine the rhythm of the day. Welcome to our hot and sunny guest house in the heart of Elena mountain.

History

A legend says that the first inhabitants of the Palitsi village were two brothers. One of them was very short so people called him Pale (puppy). He lived in the village’s east side so people called this part of the village Palik (Puppy side); this is where the name Palitsi came from. The other brother lived in the settlement’s west side and used to make a path in the snow in winter but his brother let his pigs free and they ruined it. So the west neighbourhood was called Razvalatsi (Ruins).
