Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I stayed at Dioni for a week at the beginning of October after attending a conference in Thessaloniki. After a week of non-stop go go go in the city, this rental provided exactly what wee hoped it would: relaxation and comfort. We used the rental as a home base from which to explor the Pelion. Location was perfect. We travelled to both coasts with ease and enjoyed quick access to many of the small villages and towns sprinkled across the Pelion. We were always close to home after a fish dinner on the beach or an endless, many coursed dinner on the mountain. Perched high on the hillside, the small yard yielded commanding views of sunset over the Bay and the lighting up of Volos after the sun dropped below the horizon. It was easy to take that in from the comfortable chairs. The rental itself was awesome. Clean, recently renoed, and extremely comfortable. We enjoyed nightly fires, and cooking breakfast each morning in the modern and fully outfitted kitchen. Had it been a little warmer we would have eaten dinner one night outside (there is a small table with chairs for two in the yard as well). Also Stathis provided some staples in the fridge and a few extra treats. This is a place to which we would return and one I recommend highly for a couple or small family.

A homey feeling in a magical place

  • 5 of 5

Only three hours away from our home, we found another place to call home. Everything was thoroughly designed to make us feel welcome and the house was equipped with care to the last detail. Warm, surrounded by beautiful nature, Dioni was a lovely surprise and a great setting for our family to spend some quality time together.

Fantastic views and service

  • 5 of 5

Spent nine days at Villa Dioni with my wife, and two other adults. Really enjoyed the villa, especially the views, and in fact spent a few days more or less totally at the villa as we liked it so much - used the grill to prepare the dinner etc. The service was excellent, thanks to the host, Dimitri, who gave us valuable guidance and provided assistance in the few problems that we encountered. The whole of Pelion peninsula was fabulous, the nature was beautiful, and the beaches (Milopotamos, Kala Nera, Afissos) extremely nice. Liked also the morning hikes around the village and along the narrow-gauge railway. The only minor problems were that the 3Gb limit of the Wifi was used up quite quickly (Dimitri provided help also here) and that the village of Agios Georgios does not have any shops, so a car is necessary (we had one so no real problem)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words, as we are always trying to provide as much local information as possible for our guests to have the chance to discover for themselves this beautiful region. Indeed the internet is an issue that we are trying to handle for 3 years now!! We managed to have fixed internet (with unlimeted bandwith) for Villa Thalia, and we hope by the end of this month to get Villa Dioni and Stone House online!! We wish you a pleasent summer and hope to see you again soon!
