After a stressful journey (largely of our own making) down from Thessaloniki, and with only three full days to enjoy the widely documented delights of this beautiful region, Pelion Country Villas were the factor that boosted our short stay from merely average to excellent.
The atmosphere at the estate was relaxed in the extreme and almost immediately took the edge off the journey down, and it was evident that a lot of thought had been put into creating and maintaining the chilled out vibe.
The proprietors Mary and Andreas went to great lengths to make sure we were comfortable and there was a feeling that nothing was too much trouble for them in that regard. The staff were similarly helpful and communication was not an issue for a family of Brits who spoke no Greek and were visiting Greece for the first time.
The swimming pool was literally picture perfect, deep and cool with a gorgeous - breathtaking in fact - outlook across the Aegean Sea. There was room to relax around the pool with shade for those liable to crisp in the sun.
Facilities in the villa were more than adequate for our needs, and the villa itself was cleaned on a daily basis. Our hire car was securely parked in a spacious bay on the flat... and you just need to drive the area around to fully appreciate the value of that statement!
