Description

The Space

Motorized transport is forbidden there. The only “4x4” has ears.
Palaio Trikeri, for centuries the home of a small fishing community, with its Byzantine Monastery dominating the island, now offers a unique opportunity to visitors to taste the natural way of life on this virgin island.
The 4 autonomous houses of Trikeri Villas are on the seafront and built in the traditional Pelion style.
A few word about Trikeri island.
The island of Trikeri, in the south of Pagasitic gulf and at the tip of the Magnesia peninsula, is particularly beautiful and remains, architecturally at least, more or less unchanged since the beginning of the century. It is not much more than a mile across, and a less than a thirty minutes walk takes one across to the other side of the island. With a population of fewer than 100, it is so little known that it doesn't even get a mention in most guidebooks.
The island is free of any traffic (no roads, no cars) and transport is by foot, donkey or boat. There are plenty of olive trees, juniper, oleander and wild flowers. Its untouched bush land and crooked pathways, its numerous wildlife and the stunning sunsets provide the perfect environment to get away from it all. There are dozens of remote coves to be found around the entire coastline; Trikeri, Pithos and Ai Giannis are pebble, while Afetica, Ai Giorgis, Pithu and Agia Sophia are sandy and pebble. Following the coastal paths, it is possible to walk around the island in half a day.
The sleepy village -named Trikeri- has a couple of taverns and a mini market. There are very few visitors, even in the height of summer. The island is dominated by the Monastery of the Virgin Mary, which is a 15 minutes' walk from the quay and well worth the stroll. It has a small 18th-century church with an arcaded courtyard of cells, and an overgrown garden of orange trees and Madonna lilies. Guests are welcome to visit at certain times of the week.
The island’s only village “Agios Ioannis” has a couple of tavernas, cafe, bar and a mini market with all that you need. Rustic and simple, the village is a pretty place where the locals are incredibly hospitable and welcome newcomers.
The location is perfect for boat lovers as you can moor up for free. The island is within the Pagasitic gulf, so the waters are mostly exceptionally calm. The nearest point of mainland is 5 minute boat ride away. You can explore the beautiful mountains of the Pelion and visit the white sandy beaches of the Aegean on the other side. There are many interesting tours which are possible in a days drive, taking in the mountain villages. The Trikeri boat-taxi will collect you even late at night if you make arrangements before you leave.
Days are spent swimming, snorkeling, fishing, walking or relaxing with a good book.
Each house sleeps 2-4 people. It has one bedroom, living area (with 2 single beds), kitchen, bathroom with shower and is fully equipped.
