What is Pelion?
Traditional villages, ski slopes, outdoor sports, heavenly beaches and dense forests… a place for all seasons
Pelion is one of the most greenest areas of Greece, which combine Forest/ The sea/ Rivers and Unique Traditions.
Absolutely undiscovered place in Greece, this is where we are all going this year for Yoga/Hiking/ Beach and Delicious Food.
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, beeches, gardenias, hydrangeas, camellias. 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 peacock-coloured water all add to this multi-coloured assemblage. Up high, its villages teeter on the edge of the mountain. One weekend is not enough to take it all in. Welcome to magnificent Pelion.
