The property is excellently situated at the heart of Pelion and is very clean and stylishly decorated. You will certainly sleep well in the house, after having gazed at the stars of the Greek sky as seen from the countyside. The hosts, Stathis and Dimitris were extremely helpful and fully available to answer our numerous questions, throughout the duration of our stay. Our young childeen thouroughly enjoyed the garden at the little pool!

Facilities were very good, truly a home away from home. Highlight was having great lunch on the nearby beach. Excellent fresh fish and service.Old Bakery surpassed my expectations and host went out of his way. It was an ideal place to unwind and relax, perfect balance with great activities and peace and quiet.
