Holiday Rental House
My Home in Olympus is the ideal holiday home for those who want to feel at home when on vacation. Those who want to enjoy their vacation slowly, taking their time, without employees or personnel constantly reminding them that they are simple visitors. It was not created as yet another tourist accommodation in a settlement that explodes in the summer and withers away during the winter. It was built as a main, luxurious residence, to accommodate an extended family in a typical, no frills village of the Greek countryside. It feels like home, because it is home. The 307 m2 property, within a yard of 1000 m2, can accomodate 8 people in its four bedrooms, and 12 overall if the spaceous living room and kitchen are also used to that extent. It lies on the foothills of Mount Olympus, in Pyrgeto...My Home in Olympus is the ideal holiday home for those who want to feel at home when on vacation. Those who want to enjoy their vacation slowly, taking their time, without employees or personnel constantly reminding them that they are simple visitors. It was not created as yet another tourist accommodation in a settlement that explodes in the summer and withers away during the winter. It was built as a main, luxurious residence, to accommodate an extended family in a typical, no frills village of the Greek countryside. It feels like home, because it is home. The 307 m2 property, within a yard of 1000 m2, can accomodate 8 people in its four bedrooms, and 12 overall if the spaceous living room and kitchen are also used to that extent. It lies on the foothills of Mount Olympus, in Pyrgetos, overlooking the rich plains of Thessaly before the Tempi valley from an altitude of 140 meters. Pyrgetos is a village of 2.000 inhabitants that lives and breathes during the whole year, without population spikes during the summer season. It is easily accessible through the A1/E75 motorway (Athens – Thessaloniki). My Home In Olympus lets you experience the Greek summer in a unique combination of mountain and sea, entertainment and culture, tradition and innovation, away from the rowdy and beaten path of package holidays. Amongst others, Pyrgetos is at a distance of: - 10 minutes (10 km) from the verdant picturesque valley of Tempi, a NATURA protected area; - from 10 to 25 minutes (from 15 to 25 km) from eight different BLUE FLAG awarded beaches (3 in Nea Mesaggala, Neoi Poroi, Platamonas, Skotina, Leptokarya, Plaka Litochorou); - 15 minutes (17 km) from the Castle of Platamonas, standing since the 13th century; - 40 minutes (43 km) from Dion where the tomb of Philip the Second, the father of Alexander the Great, was found; - 75 minutes (120 km) from Thessaloniki, a major airport, the second biggest city in Greece and capital of Macedonia; - 90 minutes (125 km) from the impressive monasteries of Meteora. The area offers travellers plenty to experience; it has a rich cultural history with ancient ruins, churches and chapels; picturesque hikes on its varied terrain, among fields and vineyards; and a host of activities from swimming and water sports to wine-related events in many of the neighbouring villages. Pyrgetos is known for its agricultural production and its fresh produce, and especially its kiwis for which it is globably acclaimed. The area's microclimate is dry and warm during the later spring and summer season, as well as the early autumn season, with cool nights. There are seldom any extreme weather phenomena, with transient as much as welcome summer rains to highlight the tang of the fertile soil of Thessaly and chill down the air. The village has supermarkets, restaurants, coffee shops and bars, none of which is as near to My Home In Olympus as to cause a disturbance. Pyrgetos itself, outside its big annual festival on the 23rd and 24th of August, is not a major tourist magnet. This makes it ideal as a calm base in order for one to explore the destinations in Thessaly and Macedonia.More

I spent a week there with friends. Both the house and the garden are spacious. We really enjoyed the privacy, that we could do barbeque or party a little bit without disturbing the neighbours. We found plenty of places in the village to have a...More

It's "choice squared": The house itself is big enough so you can have a crowded noisy evening with your friends in the living room / dining area, or in the garden, or you can choose privacy in one of the rooms. The location is such,...More
