Pelion: heavenly beaches, dense forests, traditional villages, outdoor sports, ski slopes in winter; Pelion is a place for all seasons !
To one side, the Pagasitikos Gulf and, to the other, the Aegean. In between, a magical mountain to discover by the name of Pelion!
Water gurgles in the fountains. Sunbeams stream through the leaves of the plane trees, apple trees, oaks, fir, chestnut, beeches, gardenias, hydrangeas, camelias and colourful wild flowers. Nature flourishes in the fertile soil of Thessaly. In the autumn, a surreal palette of orange and red unfolds before you. Pathways, old churches, beaches with turquoise water, all add to this multi-coloured assemblage. Up high, Pelion traditional villages – perched along the dense green mountainsides or boarding the seaside – teeter on the edge of mountain and water.
Welcome to magnificent Pelion !
Portaria is one of the most ”cosmopolitan” villages. Situated at the foot of the mountain, it is the first village one gets to from Volos. Its popularity as a travel destination and its accompanying cosmopolitanism spring from its vicinity both to a skiing resort and also to the sea. Check out beautiful ARTistic House in Katichori, 2km from Portaria.
Papa Nero/Agios Ioannis is one of the most famous beaches in Pelion, offering a choice of sand or white pebbles to go with the turquoise water. Check out elegant Villa Azalea, Villa Kamelia & Villa Manolia, just a 2 min walk right over Papa Nero beach.
