The villa is in a beautiful setting with the sea glistening below and willing you in for a swim. The villa was so clean and fresh but also cool in the mid day when the sun is at its hottest. My friends absolutely loved the location and independently went for days out to tavernas locally, went swimming in the infinity pool (which was kept regularly clean and checked by the owners) and crystal clear really blue sea. Two of us loved snorkeling so spent mornings doing that. With 5 couples all independently minded we thoroughly enjoyed what the villa offered. We had hired cars in Thessaloniki so that we could see the local area which was absolutely stunning. So much so that I need to go back and see more and I have already booked the villa again for September 2017.

You can sit by the fireplace or enjoy the nature and trekking activities. The rooms are clean, spacious, decorated with great taste and attention to every small detail. Full of amenities that make your stay easy and pleasant. At Pelion Homes you enjoy your stay from the moment you walk in by a lot of complimentary and welcome surprises as tsipouro. Our party of six (plus two dogs) arrived at 00:30 and yet Stathis, the owner, was there to show us around, to give us all the details about our stay and to provide us with a pack of spaghetti having already put the water to boil in order for us to eat something due to the late arrival! We definitely will be back for more days. Thank you for the lovely weekend!

It is more than fully equipped - the hosts have thought of everything from Greek tea blends to outdoors BBQ! The property is clean and well-mantained, our host was extremely helpful and reachable & there are many things to keep the whole family entertained around the area - whether it is hiking, horse riding or just walking around traditional Greek villages. The view is one thing that will keep us warm and relaxed throughout 2017!
