The Space

Our house is an old stone house (built in the 1880's) restored a few years ago. It has three levels. The top level is one room which occupies the whole floorwith windows on all 4 sides.There is a fireplace, king size bed, sofa , old desk etc. The medium level
has the WC.shower room and a room with 2 single beds side by side, which make a king bed. The lower level has a fully equipped kitchen with table for 6 people, a washing machine fro clothes + one bed. The kitchen has direct access to the terrace and also to an adjacent room (in the pastit was a stable) which serves as a living room or 3d bedroom. There are couches/beds, armchairs, large fireplaces etc. Some of the furniture in our house belonged to my grandparents, and were brought by them to mainland Greece when they arrived in 1922 as refugees from Asia Minor.

The region of Pelio is one of the most beautiful regions of Greece. It is also a region that has been spared from the ravages of mass tourism. Its foremost appeal is the combination of mountain and sea. The mountainous peninsula is made such that within the time span of a 20 minute car drive one passes from beaches and the low shrub Mediterranean maquis vegetation, through olive groves, pine forests, and deep shaded chestnut tree forests. All 24 villages that compose the heart of the region have been well preserved architecturally and many are listed and protected. Our village is one of them.

There is one through road cutting the village for traffic but all the side streets etc are cobbled staired paths. Our house is a 2 minute walk from the parking lot. Our house is among the highest up in the village. It has both a garden and a large terrace in front of it with unobstructed views of mountains and sea for many miles. The closest beach is 25 minutes by car. There are also many paths for walking. We will provide all the information about our favourite places to go, whereto eat etc.

  • Amazing, typical... and sweet house, yes indeed ! Us 4 as a family have spent a very enjoyable and peaceful stay in the village of Pinakates. Impossible to get tired of such a beautiful sight from the patio ! The Pelion is a magnificent region. I wish I could come back some day... and discover its landscape in autumn or in winter, as in the picture ! Thanks to you, Kostis !
