You cannot but fall in love with Theodorides Estate from the time you take the turning to the country road in the forest! You feel that you start becoming one with nature as you cross the two streams before you arrive at the Grand Gate where the special hosts welcome you so warmly! We visited them at the end of August when St Mary’s festival had finished and Aghios Ioannis was quiet again. The nearby beaches were almost deserted during weekdays and our favourite Plaka beach was a bliss! The Estate is a unique spot in Eastern Pelion because it is within breathtaking distance from the beach and the big variety of restaurants. The whole ambience is exotic with intoxicating scents and the sea breeze is rejuvenating. We did spot the dolphins early in the morning and saw saw the huge old frog at the gate (they seem to have had him for years!), two badgers and a few tortoises.
Our suite was immaculate in the traditional Pelion style and the views magical. The Estate is surrounded by Palms, Beech and Plane trees but also by fruit trees especially lemon and fig trees to which we were kindly treated.
The hospitality of the hosts is second to none and we were provided with a special information leaflet for sightseeing and path walking which we love.
We had a memorable and fantastic stay in this paradise and intend to go back soon.
