About Stathis

My name is Dimitri and I am an architect , and my wife Maria is an interior decorator.We live in Athens half the year round and the other half in Agios Georgios Nilias,our village in Pelion.

You will meet us and my son Stathis if you decide to visit and to enjoy a quiet and relaxing holiday in the house we rent.

We will provide you with Maps, ideas & tips to explore Pelion according to your style. Ask for our tour suggestions.

Stathis purchased this villa in 2009

Why Stathis chose Magnesia - Pelion

We are a family who has fallen in love with this beautiful area.

For the past 30 years we have been spending many months each year in the village of Agios Georgios Nilias enjoying the tranquility and slow pace of this region in Pelion.

Over the years we have invited friends to share some time with us in the village,and the result has been that many have since, bought houses of their own ,in order to enjoy their holidays on and on.

We have decided to give this opportunity to those who do not have a property of their own, but who would love to spend their holidays in this beautiful village in the mountain in a peaceful way and feel like home.Therefore ,the house ,”Selini” ,that we offer for long or short lease has been designed and decoreated with care and love as if it were for us to live in.

We hope that you will like it.

What makes this villa unique

fantastic view to the Gulf .

Big garden 2000 m2 and 2 verandas the one coved for outdoor meals etc.

very quiet area with no traffic at all. Ideal for children.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Very very nice rental (the best one we booked for a long time !): warm welcome by Dimitri and his wife, extraordinary view, the house is beautiful, comfortable and very well equipped (we appreciate to have the wifi...); Pilion is a wonderful area with a lot of calm places to visit with very nice and hospitable people. We have very good memories of this house and we recommend it ! Nelly, Daniel and the others.

We loved it, Pelion at its best

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at end of August in the Selini Villa. A couple with two teenagers and enjoyed every minute.

The house is much more than a place to stay, it was part of the experience in Greece.

The house is planned in very good taste, very spacious, but still very cozy with its warm furniture and internal design. It has many corners and places both inside and out for which are lovely to sprawl out at, read, talk or eat. From every corner of the house you get a magnificent view of the bay.

Saying that, the house was very convenient and fully equipped for any need. The kitchen is fully equipped from all spices to every appliance possible. We ate out most days in the near by taverns but we did cook a few dinners and it was nice to use the organic vegetable garden. We even baked a fruit cake form the garden peaches.

The house is an excellent location for travelling around Pelion beaches and also for local hiking. One of the hikes we did started at the house climbing all the way to the top of mount Pelion and back.

Pelion is absolutely beautiful and Dimitri was a great help in pointing and recommending restaurants and beaches.

The communication and reservation were very easy and they waited for us on arrival to bring us directly to the house. part of the warm welcome on arrival the fridge was full for the first day of stay and maps on the table for planning the next days.

Gorgeous traditional house with all the trimmings

  • 5 of 5

Cosy just doesn't do this place justice! We enjoyed 4 fantastic days here for the Greek Orthodox Easter. Two young couples with 3 kids, this spacious and immaculate house has everything you'll ever need (and actually more than we had at our own home!). A beautiful house in a tranquil setting, we never got tired of the view from the large verandas. The house is roomy, well designed and beautifully furnished (a major plus is the insulation between the floors - good to make sure little ones stay sleeping while the adults enjoy tsipouro by the fireplace) and the perfect place to come back to after a long hike in the surrounding countryside and villages. The village of Agios Georgios is a complete contrast to the heavily commercialized side of Pilio where you'll find Portaria and Makrinitsa villages, and that's what makes a holiday here a real escape. The owner is simply beyond hospitable, we were with our eight-month old son and not only was a baby cotbed provided, but a baby bath, high chair and toys. Oh yes, and a baby backpack for our little guy so we could carry him with us on our hikes! We literally could not have asked for more. The house is not only equipped with the essentials, but lovely touches such as local spices, teas, spirits and a load of other things that it's better to find out for yourself as a surprise. And believe me you won't be disappointed. Would I recommend this place and the owners. You bet, it, and they, are magical. Thanks again for an unforgettable experience! Well be back soon!

Unutulmaz bir tatildi

  • 5 of 5

Öncelikle sitede gördüğünüz tüm fotoğraflar gerçek. Muhteşem bir yerde muhteşem bir ev. Ev sahibi, her türlü detayı düşünmüş. Bu nedenle evde herhangi bir eksik bulmanız mümkün değil. Ev sahibi Stathis, görülecek yerler, gidilebilecek restoranlar, bulunduğunuz süre boyunca takip edebileceğiniz etkinliklere kadar tüm detaylar hakkında bilgi veriyor. Pelion bölgesi için söyleyecek bir şey bulamıyorum. Gönlümün yarısı orada kaldı desem yalan olmaz. Ev de en az bölge kadar etkileyiciydi. O sessizlik ve muhteşem manzara karşısında evden çıkmak o kadar zor oldu ki. Doğa ve sakinlik arayanlar için mükemmel bir yer. Kesinlikle tavsiye ederim.

You´ll never be dissapointed in this house

  • 5 of 5

My friends and me, four women from Finland were staying in this excellent house SELINI for a week in June/14. We carefully studied the description and photos of the house and location before, and however we were totally surprised! The place was more than we had ever been imagining!

The house is a real home, the best of all that anybody of us ever rented. Fully equipped kitchen and other facilities. And how nice to have central heating (for Finns!) in the first two nights when it was raining and rather cold. We’ll never forget the beautiful stunning view for just relaxing or to have our breakfast and dinner on one of the three verandas. The four bedrooms are of a good size and separated just enough so you can find a peace of your own too, that is important if you are travelling with a group.

The nature around has of great natural beauty and enchantment: mountains, sea, lush vegetation, river beds with running waters etc. Fine experience to take a path up to the hill and then a bath down to the sea! The idyllic villages with traditional mansions and architecture are something special in this area. The public library in Milies is also the Must you should visit.

We had email contact with the Bookings manager already in Finland, so we got quick answers to all our questions before. The owners are just real gentlemen and representative of the lovely Greek well-known hospitality, so you’ll never be disappointed here!

Of course you need a car in Pilion- and be careful, I’d say!

With many friendly thanks!

Marjatta, Eija, Leena and Eija
