At the coastal foothills of the legendary mount Olympus, the original kingdom of Zeus and the 12 Gods of Greek mythology, the Moskoff estate consists of a 50 acre forest landscape amid an unspoiled, pristine environment overlooking a quiet beach. The property at stake is 13 acres, including a 250 square meters mansion. The mansion’s chalet style architecture designed by the Italian owner Amina Arrigoni Moskoff, the estate’s unique location right next to an excellently preserved medieval castle and the Moskoff family history’s reputation as philanthropists, make this property a local landmark known to thousands of visitors.
The house itself is situated at the highest top of the estate on a small hill overlooking the Aegean sea. Its proximity -walking distance- from the beach is 3 minutes walking downhill amid the tall pines of the estate. From the northern side the house’s living room one has a spectacular unrestricted view to the medieval castle of Platamonas, a landmark of high archaeological beauty and significance that you can also reach within a 20 minute walking distance. Driving uphill by car, the estate’s distance from the national motorway is only 2 minutes and within 10 minutes you can reach the picturesque village of St. Panteleimonas in mount Olympus with its traditional architecture and peaceful mountain culture. The coastal village of Platamonas is also reached within a 4 minute drive and offers plenty of modern amenities and Greek traditional leisure facilities. The cosmopolitan city of Thessaloniki and its international airport are also reached within a 50 minute drive (the big cities of Katerini and Larissa are also accessible in about half an hour northbound and southbound respectively). In the same proximity, the archaeological sites of Dion and Vergina, offer to the visitor the two most important monuments of Ancient Macedonian history. Expedition to the top of Mount Olympus (2917 meters) offers a unique opportunity to experience this world class monument of natural heritage. Other must see local excursions include a romantic cruise along river Penios while crossing the spectacular Tempi valley gorge/canyon, a visit to the Ampelakia village with its distinguished local architecture and great history.

We were absolutely delighted to stay at this house. It has history and character and I think were were very lucky to have the opportunity to stay here. The garden is huge and charming. Even though there is plenty of interesting places around some of us just stayed at the house admiring the atmosphere. Great view to Platamon Castle and sea. The beach is quite close as well. Our host was very helpful, caring and made us feel at home. We would love to come back and would definitely recommend to friends.
We spent a very wonderfull time in platamon in the "Moscoff Estate".
The house is welcoming with the bedroom and a real kitchen, a very large dinner room and terraces all around on 3 sides. There is a ever a good place where to be all the day during!
But the most wonderful thing in Moscoff Estate is the large park, green around the house and offerinn an incrédible view on the sea. because of the park, the house is so isolated that you can fill alone in front of the beauty of the sea?
We had a wonderful time at Villa Moskoff! We were there 2 families with 5 children in July 2013. The house is very spacious with great atmosphere and very well equiped. The garden and and terrace make every evening very pleasant with terrific view of the Platamon Castle, Olympus mountain and Aegean sea. The villa location is unique and makes everyone feel like in dream vacation. Walk to the sea is just few minutes away and the beach is very nice and quiet with great places to eat nearby. There are very interesting places to visit close to Platamonas where you can feel the continental Greece.
We strongly recommend stay at Villa Moskoff for everyone who wants to relax, enjoy sea and sun and forget a daily life for a while. Heracles, the owner, was very nice and helpful. Thanks Heralces for a great holiday!
