About This Listing
Old stone-made cottage located in extremely beautiful and natural surroundings, peaceful.
There are two bedrooms (double-single), bathroom with sitting tub, laundry machine, small open plan kitchen with wooden cupboards and gas cooker and oven, small but comfortable sitting room, big windows with mosquito nets and big veranda with magnificent views. There is a 2 acre garden with flowers and big trees (wallnuts, chestnuts,pines)
The house is away from the main road, (80 meters down a stone-paved path) so the place is very quiet. Our location is Pelio mountain which is one of the most beautiful mountains in Greece. It is a peninsula inside the Aegean sea and it is surrounded by sandy and pebbly beaches with crystal clear turquoise- blue water. They are all within a comfortable drive of 20 min to one hour depending on the choice.
All around the mountain can be seen (and heard) little rivers and streams of sweet clean water running down from the sources higher up. This is why the vegetation here is so lush.
Ideally one should rent a car to drive to the beaches and different sights because the public buses, though comfy and air-conditioned are a little sparse. There are many nice inexpensive restaurants within walking distance from the house. We do not allow flesh consumption in the property (milk products and eggs are ok) so when the taste demands, the restaurants are a good option.
The location is unique on account of its extremely beautiful and calm surroundings. xx
stress free holiday
Interaction with Guests
as much as they need me
abundant peace and beauty
best hire a car or scooter, the prices are reasonable. public bus service is lame
1) No flesh consumption in the house, milk produce and eggs are ok.
2)Try not to walk indoors with your outdoor shoes. The mountain is home to hundreds of animals and at times one can find their poos in unexpected places
Our stay at Alexandra's house was perfect... The place, in a dream like scenery, the vibrant mountains full of olive trees, pomegranate trees, lemon trees, chestnut trees... brooks and springs of pure water everywhere... little stoned paths ... and the clear and beautiful sea. The house, so cozy, with everything one needs. When the sun's up there's an incredible soft light coming in the bedroom in the morning, it's enchanting ( feel just like you're waking up in paradise =) ). And the people are so nice and welcoming in Milies ! Specially Alexandra :), she's so full of attention and Love for her guests, she really cares. When you have a host that takes care of you so well you can do nothing but feel happy and at home ! Everything was amazing, THANK YOU !!!! We Love you 3 !
Alexandra heeft ons de juiste informatie gegeven. De omgeving en het huis was precies zoals beschreven. Het uitzicht was prachtig! De privacy werd gerespecteerd. We konden terecht voor alle informatie over de streek...
Zeker een aanrader voor iedereen die griekenland wil verkennen en houdt van de bergen en de zee. Je kan er prachtige wandelingen maken, alles is enorm goed aangeduid en zeker niet te moeilijk... zeker één van de mooiste omgevingen van Griekenland... Alexandra was de perfecte gastvrouw!
we had splendid holidays in alexandra's house that was very clean and confortable. the terrasse offers you an great view on the pelion, the sea and the sky (we saw unbelievable falling stars..). the location is just pertfect, on the top of the mountagne and close to very very beautiful beaches less crowded than in the north. alexandra prepared the house with toys for the kids that they enjoyed everyday, she was very patience with them and even provided us with special music for them to dance, toy for the beach, a matrass for the sea. we had the chance to devore the vegetable she grows with a lot of love delicious sweet and juicy tomatoes, cucombers, zuchinis, pepers... she even cooked for us almost everyday we had a surprise on the table coming back from our adventures, different kind of cakes, soup of the heart from the garden, ice tea with all the herbs that are growing around us, tsatsiki... :)
well it was a magic moment for the 4 of us that we will remember, thank you again and hope to see you again
It has been a great pleasure to stay in this house! Alexandra is a great person, very kind and helpful. The house is lovely, the view is great, the house is in a very peacefull place. There are many beaches close to the house (by car). A great place!

This experience was even better than expected. We read the reviews and had excellent communication with Atma before arriving so we expected her to be a great host. More than a host, she's a friend, plain and simple. She wants to meet you and is excited to recommend hidden corners of the area.
The photos also set our expectation of the beauty of the place. We had a very comfortable cottage with a expansive view of the mountains and bay. What we didn't expect was the amazing village that this is all set in. Milies has ancient stone pathways that lead from the cottage up to a classic Mediterranean mountain town full of restaurants and cafes. It has a very authentic and unspoilt feel to it. It's just a short drive to some of the best beaches (Fakistra, Mylopotamos) that I've ever visited. The Pelion Peninsula is incredibly underrated and under-discussed. I will be recommending it and Atma to any friends interested in avoiding overdeveloped areas and seeing the wild and unspoilt Greece.
