The house and the garden are feng shui places where you really can relax, no noisy roads and above all a magnificent view. The house was clean and a multitude of details make you feel welcomed . We didn't know the Pelion , we discovered it for the first time and fell in love with the beauty of its landscapes . The only thing you have to know is that Pelion is a mountain region so you drive at 30km/h and distances are often longer that you thought. We spent a fantastic week and I definitively recommend the house.
