Olive Store Cottage was originally built as a 'kalivi', a farm building for storing produce, sheltering animals and for the owners to live when working the land.

In 2005 it was carefully and lovingly restored as a simple but beautiful holiday cottage. It has two large double bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs. A cosy living and dining room with log burning stove. There is a well equipped kitchen and family bathroom with shower on the ground floor. The upstairs bedroom has an ensuite toilet and washbasin. Outside a covered terrace to enjoy shady summer living and cool evenings.

The owners house is about 70 meters away, and they are on hand to help you enjoy your holiday. Altogether the property is set within 3 acres of gardens, olive grove, orchard and woodland. We overlook the Aegean Sea and in the distance the island o...

October - what a fantastic time to visit the Olive Store Cottage. Blue skies, luscious vegetation, an huge variety of flowers and empty beaches! The district had everything we could have wanted, in abundance. We were more than thrilled when we arrived at the Olive...More

About the neighbourhood
The beautiful Pelion peninsula is situated in the prefecture of Magnesia in Thessaly, Central Greece, and offers visitors memories and holidays that they will never forget.

Stunning scenery, luscious nature, great sandy beaches, crystal clear sea, the snow capped mountain, spring water falls, winding cobble-stoned paths, ... all images that will stay with you forever and be cherished whenever you think back to your time spent here in Pelion.

Scattered across the Peninsula are over 70 Pelion villages, all varying in size, from the famous mountainous villages of Tsagarada, Milies and Lafkos, to the beautiful coastal villages of Horto, Milina and Platanias. Pelion is full of magic and scenes of extreme beauty, and is the ideal destination to visit all year round.

How to get there
Driving from Athens and Thessaloniki to Volos is very simple on the national road that links the two main cites of Greece. From Volos it is an easy drive along local roads with little traffic and the most stunning views to the Olive Store Cottage just before the village of Platanias. We will send simple detailed driving directions to you on request. If you bring your car by ferry from Italy we recommend the route Ancona to Igoumonitsa. From Igoumonitsa the drive is 5 hours crossing the Pindus mountains on the stunning new Egnatia motorway. Driving in mainland Greece is simple and outsdie major city centres you will encounter very little traffic.

Our nearest mainland airport is Volos but flights there are more limited. We are happy to advise you with the best travelling suggestions dependi...
