Situated on the south coast of Pelion (often also referred to as "Pilio") near the village of Afeilianes, and framed by a dramatic rock formation, our villa provides unparalleled privacy and stunning 180 degree sea views. At the same time, "Cliff House" is only 5 minutes by car from the nearest public beach and 7 minutes by foot to one of the most lauded Tavernas in the region. A steep 15 minute hike through serene olive groves (time varies depending on your physical condition) will take you down to a small, secluded beach with crystal-clear waters, which is otherwise only accessible by boat.
Privacy. Nature. The Sea. Romance.
"Cliff House" offers a private master suite with a spacious bedroom / dressing area and bathroom as well as a large open kitchen / living room. An open-concept loft on split levels is currently set up as an extra bedroom plus inspiring workspace / lounge area with a balcony overlooking the turquoise Aegean waters.
If you travel with another couple or grown-up kids, additional sleeping quarters are available in a separate, rustic wooden guest cottage up the hill. Set back approximately 40 meters (120 feet) from the main house, the cottage offers two small bedrooms, a bathroom and a well equipped, small kitchenette, sleeping up to four guests (ideal for up to 2 children and two adults, but too tight for four adults). It also has a small terrace with gorgeous sea views and provides equal amounts of privacy due to it its distance from the main house. Please let us know if you wish to only reserve the main house for a maximum of four people or would also like to rent the guesthouse. In this case, 15 Euro per person and night will automatically be added to the rental price for guests number 5 up to a maximum of 8. (The villa offers generous 145 m2, the guesthouse another 25 m2 of living space). If you reserve the villa only, the guesthouse will remain locked and not be rented out separately.
"Cliff House" is accessible via a 150 meter-long gravel road, which is easy to negotiate, even with a basic rental car. Parking for several vehicles is available by the house.
Away from mass tourism, South Pelion is known for its pristine nature, beautiful beaches, authentic fishing villages and undisturbed hiking trails through lush green hills and olive pastures. Upon arrival, you will find hiking maps as well as our own personal recommendations for trips and other activities in the region. Internet (good enough for email and skype, but not for streaming / gaming), TV (generous selection of DVD movies in English and German), board games and a variety of books in English and German are also available.
Our dedicated property manager lives close by and speaks German and English fluently. She will personally welcome you upon arrival and provide you with an introduction to the house and grounds. In case of questions or problems, she is available 24/7.
"Cliff House" was originally built in 1985 by a German dancer as a studio and then upgraded and re-envisioned in 2013 by a British architect. We bought the house in the fall of 2017. Until we will be able to spend as much time there as we would like to, we are sharing it with like-minded individuals, who value the region's appeal and this incredible home as much as we do. After all, staying at "Cliff House" is an experience in beauty. Guests will enjoy all new beds, mattresses, sofas, carpets, bed-linens and towels as of the spring of 2018.
How to get there: Approximately 5 hours by car from Athens airport and about 4 hours by car from Thessaloniki Airport via well-developed highways. During the summer season, numerous charter / budget airline flights are also available to Volos, reducing the travel time by car (from Volos airport to South Pelion) to only about 2 hours.
Disclaimer: As this property is built into the slope of a mountain, and due to the open design of the inner staircase, the "Cliff House" is unfortunately not suitable for young children or for people with mobility problems - our apologies! Smoking, pets and parties or events are NOT permitted in the house. Please bring your own beauty products. Long term renters are always welcome!
CLIFF HOUSE is a unique and truly amazing place. Please treat it as though it were your own. Thank you!
