They made us feel at home from the first second we met them. Their service was excellent without interference from them. They provided more than enough information about Pelion, they even have their own little book with tips, trips, a map and even specially build cd's. The house was very clean with supply to get through the first day, a parasol and little beach chairs, board games in case of rain, a BBQ. It was more than complete. We had a list of places to visit and things to see, and this was the same they proposed in their book. The beaches on the Aegean sea are more beautifull than on the Pagasitikos Gulf. The people were very friendly and not pushy, except in Volos. There is a more tourist atmosphere. Volos is also a city where you can go shopping. We also went to Meteora, a special shaped hill with monastries on top. It's a long drive (2 to 3 hours), but it's worth it. When you are there you should take the opportunity. The monastries are on the Unesco's list of world heritage. To summarise, we had a very nice stay in Pelion, thanks to the people of Pelion Homes.
