Interaction with Guests

Mike met us at the village square and then took us to the house, he provided details of the area and made us feel very welcome. The traditional house was an amazing experience to stay at, close to dining and supermarket. The house was well equipped for self-catering also. The description provided was accurate. I would highly recommend staying here to experience traditional mountain village life.
Ken and two friends, were three very smiley and pleasant guys. They was accurate at time of arrival and departure that we agreed. Leave the house in good condition during their departure, also left a bottle of wine as a gift.
Thanks a lot (website hidden). Ken is a type recommended as a guest.
Séjour très sympathique et hôte agréable. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le charme du village. Un peu compliqué de se chauffer au bois (voyage en novembre), maison au confort et a la propreté un peu rustiques... mais le charme du lieu le vaut largement. Très bon rapport qualité-prix.
This little mountain house is everything you would expect based on the picture and more.. more because the pictures cannot tell you how great it is to enter a house that feels just like a home you were dreaming about. We decided to spend two weeks here so I could finish my dissertation, the mountain house turned out to be a perfect location for such writing retreat.
The environment of the house is relaxing, it is among the houses at the highest part of the village, only a few people walk by, the parking is close enough to allow a comfortable moving in and out, but far enough not to hear people arriving and leaving the village. There is a central square with several bars and shops where you can go for a drink and to buy bread and other groceries you need.
The trip to the closest town Agria takes about 30 minutes with amazing scenery through good quality serpentine roads with olive plantations on the side.
There are beaches to visit on both sides of the mountain. We would recommend the one called Fakistra. There are also hiking routes in the mountains, the signs are sometimes difficult to find, having a map or a GPS is absolutely recommended.
But I must note that if you have an otherwise busy and hectic life, hanging out around the house and just going for a few hours of beach time at the end of the day can be really relaxing.
More on the house: it fits perfectly even two families, but I didn't find it too big for the two of us either. On the ground floor three people can sleep and on the floor upstairs another three or four. The kitchen is well equipped, there is a modern washing machine, the water is potable, there is always enough hot water for taking showers, the temperature of the house is aroudn 25°C even in late July. You can relax and eat outside the house at the courtyard, which has an amazing atmosphere, sometimes cats crossing it.
The host, Mike was really nice, I recommend you to contact him before you arrive, so he can give you directions how to get to the house, in our case he welcomed us outside the village. He was also very helpful and gave us advice how to reach the beaches we were interested in and told us about routes between the villages we couldn't have found otherwise.
It is a perfect location for summertime relaxation and I am sure that the scenery must be amazing during the fall as well (given that there are many trees in the forest that change colors that time).
We absolutely recommend both the Pelion mountains and this charming mountain house!!!
We hebben een fijne tijd gehad in het karakteristieke berghuis van Mike. We hebben daar gelogeerd van 1 t/m 7 juli.
Mike heeft ons vriendelijk ontvangen. Het huis is goed voorzien van alles wat je nodig hebt en herlijk koel in de zomer. Het is op een mooie plek gelegen en heeft een fijn terras waar je de bergrivier hoort stromen. Agios Lavrentios is een leuk bergdorpje met een prachtig, groot plein met monumentale platanen en een notenboom. Het oude deel is autovrij en de straatjes zijn heel stijl en gemaakt van bergkeien. Wel veel klimmen voor je ergens bent. Maar op het plein is het 's avonds erg gezellig. We zijn er elke avond geweest om wat te eten of te drinken.
Vanaf het huis ben je in 15 minuten aan de kust. Ideale plek dus.

Wir möchten Mike danken das wir wieder einmal einen wunderbaren Urlaub in Griechenland verbringen konnte.
Das Haus ist ein wunderbarer Ausgangspunkt um Pelion zu erkunden.
Zum Haus kann man nur sagen es ist alles da von Kamin, Kaffeemaschine und Toaster....sogar (Kirschen auf dem eigen Baum im Hof) Ein schönes altes griechisches Haus in absoluter Ruhe einfach nur Griechenland in mitten der Berge und trotzdem in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Strand.
Wir können das Haus in Ag. Lavrentios nur weiter empfehlen.
