I visit Pelion every year. It is a hidden gem in Greece. It is not easy to get to which is why it retains so much of its authentic character. You will feel like you have stepped back in time visiting the villages in Pelion. The hiking is breath-taking, the beaches unencumbered by masses of tourists and the food in... More

Mount Pelion was a total surprise for me. The mountain is majestic, covered by huge sweet chestnut and plane trees, with apple and pear trees further down and, at sea level, olive groves which stretch right down to the water. At the top there is a ski resort with an unbeatable view of the Pagasitic Gulf on one side and... More

I have visited Pelion many times in the past years. We always go to Lafkos to stay there in a house of friends. Pelion is an area protected by the EU for it's unique fauna and flora. You can go into the mountains or enjoy the lovely beaches at the pagasetic gulf or at the aegean coast.

The combination of mountains and sea is hard to beat. Pelion has both and more and as such is rightly renowned as one of the loveliest parts of Greece. Athenians have long headed there to escape the summer heat of the capital and enjoy the snow that blankets the summit in winter (there’s even a ski centre). Tourists from all... More

This is one of the best and most beautiful areas in Greece. We have visited many times over nearly 40 years. It has the Aegean to the east and the Pagasitikos Gulf to the west. The Aegean is frequently windy, so bathing is not always possible but the Pagasitikos Gulf is usually quite calm if not as clean. The mountains... More
