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.

                                                            We have stayed twice at Dolphins Leap & are already booked to go again this year. It is definitely now a hugely anticipated annual treat. Dolphins Leap is a slice of Pelion perfection. Set on a hillside, the views are breathtaking and the minute you arrive there is a wonderful sense of peace & tranquility. The house is very spacious - cool, very comfortable & very well maintained. The nearest village is the perfect place to walk for the most delicious lunches/dinners. The locals are very friendly and charming. Reluctant to write a review as we want to keep it all to ourselves!!! It really is heaven on earth and we can't wait to return in September again.

                                                            Best choice! Too short our stay!

                                                            We wanted to spend our honeymoon (week) in Skopelos and my husband made the perfect choice with this location! We totally recommend it if you are in search of a private and romantic place. The communication with the owner (Dimitris) was prompt and efficient from the beginning and we are still in touch as we plan to return at Pegasus Villa. We got there by ferry and someone waited for us to take us to the villa and show us around. As mentioned before the villa is located in a quite and private area, with a great view, in the same time not far away from the town (5-10 min by car). It is completely equipped, offers all the needed comfort. It is very cozy, nicely furnished and decorated, just as a home. I would like to mention that during our stay someone came to clean the house, the pool, change the bed and the towels. It was difficult to decide to leave the pool and the house even to go shopping :) (excellent fresh fish and sea food in town (blue store near farmacy) - excellent barbecue grill at the villa). We did visit the sea (10 -15 min by car - depending on your choice) but preferred the villa with the pool and the view and the quite and the comfort and the intimacy :) P.S. Tip: as the ferry might be a little expensive at a full price, we found out that there are some offers available through Cosmote at half price (we will google this for our next visit there ;))

                                                            Welcoming, warm, relaxing. Definitely coming back

                                                            We spent an amazing Easter in Arktos in 2014. It was the perfect home for our family. Welcoming, warm, fully equiped, it offered exactly what we needed. Sheltered in the beautiful pine forest of Pefkias, it gave us the opportunity to rest in the absolute quiet,not far from the port where we could go for walks, shopping or eat at one of the restaurants. The layout of the house proved excellent as the bedrooms, spread on both sides of the house, with the living room and kitchen in between, allowed me to get up early, make my coffee and read my book in front of a beautiful window overlooking the lush mountains and the sea, without disturbing those still sleeping. During the day we enjoyed swimming in our pool and the children played endlessly in the house yard. In the evenings, having put the kids to bed, we used to sit with my husband in front of the pool and enjoy a bottle of wine. One thing is certain. We will surely visit again. Many thanks to the lovable hospitable owners who did everything possible to ensure a pleasant and enjoyable stay. We recommend it unreservedly as the best choice choice.
