The countryside of Thessaly, Greece is quite remarkable. The peaks of four mountain ranges can be found within the region, offering extremely good walking, riding and mountain biking. The many gorges, woodlands and rivers also provide a terrain perfect for outdoor activity, allowing you to try almost any activity from a self catering Thessaly property. The regions 24 Byzantine Monasteries which cling to some of the towering Meteora rocks of the region almost defy belief, and attract many people to the area. The mountain villages, spa centres and churches of the Agrafa Mountains are particularly spectacular and traditional, well worth investigating for a few weeks if you can find the time from your Thessaly villa.

The Meteora Monasteries of Thessaly are a huge attraction. Capping the top of gigantic rock towers in the deep canyons of the Pindus Mountains, the monasteries cannot fail to capture your imagination, beautiful and stately, humble yet defying belief.

Highly recommended

5 of 5
A combination of serenity and action. 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!

Lovely villa, great location

5 of 5
We had a lovely week and we thought your house was beautiful. It was very well-equipped and tastefully decorated. We especially liked the Moroccan pieces having been there ourselves last year. The restaurant recommendations were excellent: we tried Flisvos, Agnanti and Plateia (twice). Unfortunately Anatoli in Skopelos was closed for the season. As for beaches, we visited Limnonari, Perivoliou, Stafylos and Milia but our favourite was Kastani. We enjoyed the pool, table tennis and pétanque as well. It's hard to think of any improvements you could make. Christos and his wife were very helpful. Thanks again, we would definitely like to return one day.

Propery was excellent for the split level between the dining area and the lounge.

4 of 5
View was great. Terrace excellent in themornings but shady in the afternoons (good/bad?). The owner was helpful in every respect. I think you need a car if you are dining at the nearest village. It is a pretty hilly walk back after a big meal and very dark August onwards. The tavernas in the village are very good.
