Aphroula's House is a modern and very comfortable and well equipped property set in a beautiful and quiet location at the back of the village of Milina.
The Studio downstairs has twin beds, with space for a third, folding, bed, a kitchen corner with sink, fridge, kettle, toaster and coffee-maker, while outside in a covered area there is a second sink, a small electric oven and rings, and a barbecue. The terrace in front of the studio leads down to an attractive flower and shrub garden and beyond to a productive vegetable garden. The Studio has an outside marble table, and two sun loungers, and like the Apartment has a ceiling fan and air conditioning.
Behind the house the hills, covered with olive trees, climb steeply to the village of Lafkos. The lane stops here at the house, so there is no passing traffic... it's very peaceful.
Note that since the pictures were taken the trees have grown considerably, but the views are still there.
Our Village: Milina is the largest of the seaside villages here in South Pelion - though that is not saying much, with an electoral register of only some 800 souls. However, we have three good grocery and provisions stores, two butchers, two bakers', two souvenir shops, and a couple of shops selling 'summer things' - beach shoes, sun hats, and buckets and spades, etc - and a newsagent and a chemist. And along the waterfront there is a really good selection of tavernas specialising in traditional Greek dishes. There are several souvlaki joints, a pizza palace, and several bars and cafes all with the sea just a metre or so away. Finally the beaches. The sea here in the Gulf of Volos is normally quiet, calm and warm, and as the beaches don't shelve, and there are no rocks or currents, it is ideal for children.
