“Fantastic romantic getaway”

We have spent one night at Oliver's cottage and enjoyed it so much.
It's the great place to spent there several romantic days. That's really autentic house, really rustic, but fine and clean with all what you need, comfortable utensils and even antique stuff, like cute baby chair.
But the main gem is the location and environment.
You find yourself at the heart of olive gardens. magic Pelio mountains with breathtaking view of the gulf from all your windows and balconies.
All the yard and back patio are yours, you can sit there, preparing BBQ, drinking wine, that your host Richard provides you with and enjoy sunset beleiving that whole the world is such quiet and beautiful.
when we planned te trip, the part of that was the Little Steam Pelion Train trip from Ano Lechonia to Mileau. Absolutely surprisingly the intermedient railway station of it , is Ano Gatsea, that is couple of stairs of your cottage. You just wake up in the morning, have a small breakfast with perfect cappucino in small taverna 20 meters up of the entrance to the cottage's yard and at 10/30 you get your steam little train near your table!!
The trip is magic and worths the separate story. You really understand than, why Pelion was considered the place for summer vacations of Olympic Gods!!!
Richard is very nice host. He lives nearby and will provide you with all info you need. You can find in the cottage the trully great guide of the place with the directions for walking and hiking that is made by Richard with pictures and explanations.
I strongly recommend this place for friends and couples for perfect romantic escape from reality. The only thing we're sorry - that spent there such short time that is not enough to explore the area.
Tips:
1. The place is not optimal for small children because of the staircase
2. Ask Richard in advance for clear explanation how to find the place, because the access is challanging
