About Stathis

Over the years our family has fallen in love with this beautiful mountain called Pelion in central Greece. For the past 40 years we have been spending several months a year in the village of Agios Giorgos Nilias enjoying the peace and the gentle pace of Mount Pelion.This mountain offers breathtaking views over the sea and is dotted by 34 charming little villages.The traditional houses, built of stone with slate roofs provide an idyllic setting all year round, with lush vegetation surrounding them.

All this time, many of our friends who stayed in the village as our guests loved this special place and some decided to acquire their own homes. On this occasion, we wanted to offer an opportunity for those who would like to visit Agios George Nilias, but do not own their home, to offer for short or longer period some of the houses we have built, equipping them with much care and love like they were made for us!

With great care in details, we have designed and equipped the interior of the houses as well as and the external verandas and gardens so that visitors feel at home and totally free to relax and take it all in. We invite our visitors to come and taste an unique and unforgettable way of exploring and come closer to nature!

In Pelion Homes we want you to feel like home. This is our motto and our main concern!

Stathis purchased this villa in 2014

Why Stathis chose Magnesia - Pelion

The house has a swimming pool that one can relax near it reading and drinking especially at the night hours. The pool area is protected with a fence for the safety of the children .The area where the house is situated is very quit. There is no traffic noise.

In 5 min walking ,you can reach the square of the village and the restaurants.

In 15 min walking ,you can reach the wonderful chestnut forest.

Ideal for children.

What makes this villa unique

The house has a unique advantage .

Its location is such (looking south) ,that you can reach easily the beaches of Pagasitikos Gulf (RIVERA BEACH etc) and the most lovely beaches of Greece ,in the Aegean sea. Beaches of Lambinou, Milopotamos, Fakistra, Xinovrisi (or Potistika) Agioi Saranda and more. In addition, one can enjoy all seasons in this house, observe the beautiful colors of autumn, or the refreshing blooms of spring. Summer is ideal to sit out and have your breakfast or dinner, while in winter you can stay warm and cosy in front of the fireplace, baking chestnuts and reading a book.

In 5 min walking you can reach the square of the village and the restaurants.

In 15 min walking you can reach the wonderful chestnut forest.

What more one can ask but to be so close to nature while enjoying vast panoramic views of the mountains and Pagasiticos bay.

You can visit also the monasteries of the Meteora .

Guestbook comments from the manager

I stayed at the gorgeous Villa Thalia for just over a week, it was my first trip to Greece and coming from South Africa ( Cape Town ) I am familiar with a beautiful beach or two… but the beaches that I visited during my stay were nothing short of breath taking! There are several you can visit yet no two alike but all offering something unique. Take your goggles and flippers to snorkel around little caves, others are so discreete you feel have your own private beach, they offer calm warm waters and beautiful sunsets. while other beaches are a little more lively with white pebbled beaches, turquoise waters, beach bars and music. there is something for anyone and any mood. and what better than after a long day on the beach to end at a Taverna in one of the village squares with some delicious Greek cuisine all fresh and local produce and an ice cold beer, or just as nice was to dine alfresco at the villa while gazing out at the beautiful 360view of pelion. I can not say enough good things about my trip, the only thing I would change is perhaps I would have stayed a few more days… A week felt too short in this little paradise!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have just finished spending a week in the beautiful villa Thalia. The house is absolutely wonderful, beautifully decorated with great attention to detail. The hosts, Dimitris and Stathis were so kind and genuinely cared for everything we needed. We wholeheartedly recommend staying here. Thank you so much Dimitris and Stathis!

Beautiful villa with lovely sea views

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Villa Thaila for just under a week. The villa is beautifully done to a very high standard and was extremely clean.

The kitchen was equipped for our needs with oven, hob, large fridge and an espresso coffee machine. The lounge was very comfy with widescreen TV and a sound system. Outside, there was a range of seating and we really enjoyed having the outside dining area for breakfasts. There is also a hammock, perfect for relaxing! Below the villa is a small garden where we picked some of our own organic veg.

There were some biting insects but all the windows were equipped with moveable fly screens so you could still have the windows open without flies/mosquitos coming in which was fantastic in the hot weather.

The only issue we had during our stay was the noise made by dogs barking sometimes during the night.

In Agios Georgios village there are many walks along the old cobblestone paths - the kalderimi - and we really enjoyed several long walks during our stay!

We were less impressed by the tavernas in the mountains as many were closed or offered only "tapas" style food; however, this may have been due to our stay being outside of high season, in September.

Would highly recommend this villa!

Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour dans le Pélion. Notre propriétaire, Dimitris, nous a accueilli comme des rois dans sa très jolie maison superbement équipée et sa vue splendide. Une adresse de qualité que nous recommandons vivement pour visiter cette région magnifique et préservée.

Pelion Homes have done it again!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third of their properties we have stayed in, and each one is different and as wonderful as the other. Thalia has the same traditional Pelion design basis, with solid construction, lovely stone tile floors downstairs, wooden ceilings, high quality fittings, well appointed and stocked kitchen, etc. as the other houses, but Stathis has brought a slightly more modern feeling to Thalia by using pale wood where possible – floors, cabinets, and so on – which means the house has a brighter sensation, particularly noticeable early in the season (we were there for two weeks over the Greek Easter period). This modernity is complimented by the locally handmade bedroom furniture and fittings, and also downstairs including the ‘office’, and the kitchen cabinets. Stathis has obviously inherited much of his mother’s interior design flair to accompany his architectural skills achieved by following his father!

A benefit of visiting Pelion at Easter was the emergence of stunning carpets of wild flowers, along with the trees bursting into leaf, and – a real bonus – the sight and sound of the birds; we saw a golden eagle hovering over the hillside, heard a cuckoo (which we have not heard at home for several years) and (to Norma’s delight) a nightingale began his rehearsals for the mating season in the ravine close by the house.

The weather was cool at night, but there was plenty of wood which soon warmed us up, and most of the days were bright and sunny if not always warm due to a cool breeze at times; however, we did see a temperature of 27C recorded at nearby Volos! All the beaches were deserted but we did not venture this time to test the sea temperature. Travelling over to the eastern side via the ski centre at Chania we encountered deep drifts of snow at the roadsides, left by the significant falls that had occurred a few days before we arrived.

The view from Thalia is one of its most compelling features. We sat and soaked it up for hours. Even at night the clarity of the sky when the few clouds dispersed was stunning; the moon and Venus, together with lots of other stars were clear and sharp and undimmed by light pollution.

Having spent the previous September in the house just below Thalia, and planted a few vegetables in the patch between the two houses, we were honoured to be able to pick and use the last of the crops! To give Stathis a good start for the current year’s production, we cleared the ground and prepared it for the crops soon to be planted.

Wonderful villas with fantastic views!!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was perfectly equipped with everything one could need. Lost of attention to details was given and the houses felt more like homes rather than houses for rent. Maria and Dimitris were charming hosts and welcomed us even though we arrived late in the evening. They made sure we had some supplies for breakfast and snacks and a good list of recommendations and maps of the area. Overall we would definitely stay I these villas again!! The view from. The house was just amazing!!

More than a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

It's difficult to do this place as well as the family business justice but I'll try. We enjoyed 4 fantastic days here for an autumn break. The house itself was immaculate, with every thing you'll ever need (and actually more than we had at our own home!). A beautiful house in a tranquil setting, we never got tired of the view from the veranda. The house is spacious, well designed and beautifully furnished and the perfect place to come back to after a long hike in the surrounding countryside and villages. The village of Agios Georgios is a complete contrast to the heavily commercialized side of Pilio where you'll find Portaria and Makrinitsa villages, and that's what makes a holiday here a real escape. The owner is simply beyond hospitable, we were with our 15-month old son an not only was a baby cotbed provided, but a baby bath, high chair and toys. Oh yes, and a baby backpack for our little guy so we could carry him with us on our hikes! We literally could not have asked for more. The house is not only equipped with the essentials, but lovely touches such as local spices, teas, spirits and a load of other things that it's better to find out for yourself as a surprise. And believe me you won't be disappointed. Would I recommend this place and the owners. You bet, it, and they, are magical. Thanks again for an unforgettable experience! Well be back soon!
