Great base for a relaxed break
We stayed at Alex's house in late March 2019.
We are two mature couples who enjoy walking and the Pilion's many footpaths attracted us to the area. Milina appeared to be a suitable base for the peninsula's central/ southern region and Alex's house was one of very few I could find with both two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
It is set back about 7/10 minutes walk from the sea-front, in a peaceful location backed by mountains and with a stream running close by. There are lemon and orange trees in the garden which were in fruit when we were there: freshly squeezed orange juice every morning will be a lasting memory.
Alex met us on arrival and explained the workings of the house. He was always available to assist with any issues and is an exemplary owner. We really appreciated the (included) heating, both up and down stairs, not only in the cool evenings but also the early mornings.
The kitchen is well equipped with equipment and consumables. The lounge has comfortable seating for four. The downstairs wc has a washing machine.
The bedrooms are spacious and with adequate storage, the beds are comfortable and the bathroom has a corner bath with shower.
There is parking for a number of cars and outdoor table and chairs.
Close to the sea front is a bakery and a small supermarket. (We stocked up at a large international supermarket in Agria, on our way to Milina from Volos on arrival.)
Sunsets from the sea front are spectacular.
All in all an ideal base for our purposes and we hope to return another year, probably in the autumn so we can appreciate the warmer sea.
PS If you enjoy walking, a local group Friends of the Kalderimi have an excellent F/B page with links to details of walks. They walk each Sunday outside of the really hot months.
Pretty old house, well restored
The house is large enough for four people.
As it is old, the house is quite dark on the ground floor, but fresh on the other hand.
Very pleasant rooms with air conditioning or a pleasant draught (mosquito nets in all windows).
Very beautiful and pleasant garden (but many mosquitoes), under very beautiful trees.
There is a fresh water source right next door.
Very quiet environment (some dogs bark a lot).
Well located: you can walk to the village and the beach. Milina is very pleasant, and Pelion is very beautiful and wild.
The owner is very pleasant and helpful. It makes an excellent olive oil!
