BEAUTIFUL VILLA - ON A "REAL" GREEK ISLAND!!!!!

Beautiful villa - on a "real" Greek Island!!!!!
  • 5 of 5
After an easy nad pleasant flight from Manchester we arrived at Volos Airport. Trikeri island was an easy ferry ride across the bay, but we opted for a hire car and a scenic two hour drive around some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Greece!
The short ferry ride from the headland to Trikeri island took us right to the jetty on which we unloaded our cases ready for the short walk up the track to "The Look Out"

We were not disappointed!! The villa is part of a small and exclusive complex and holds a spectacular position with superb views across the turquoise bay!
With a spacious garden and barbeque area we enjoyed our breakfasts on the balcony and late night " nightcaps" after a superb meal at Taverna Nicos, a few minutes walk away.
The villa is air conditioned throughout, comfortable lounge, and a " real" mattress in the main bedroom ( no more "Greek backache here"!!!
Well stocked and maintained, it was everything and more the owners promised!

The real " gem" however,is the islands peace and tranquility - no cars, or roads! Even the dustbins are emptied by " Donkey power"!!

With its beautiful plants and foliage, hidden beaches, and clear blue reefs, Trikeri Island slowly shared it's secrets which included some quality snorkelling. If you didn't fancy a dip then we used the villa''s fishing rods and lazily let them rest in the water at sunset while drinking a bottle of wine - what could be finer!!!

The island's two tavernas and a quiet bar were fully open while we were there and we used the car to explore the Pelion when we needed a break from all the peace and quiet!!!!!
All in all a real Greek island where time seems to stand still!! - friendly people ( everyone knows each other and are only to willing to help you!) and a perfect chance to unwind and recharge your batteries!!!!

ABSOLUTE BLISS GUARANTEED

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I have just returned from Trikeri and The Look Out after one of the most peaceful, relaxing and rewarding holidays we've ever had.
The Look Out is very well equipped for creature comforts, the A/C was welcome and the kitchen for foodies is well equipped. Cleaned to within in an inch of it's life prior to our arrival, the bathroom has a great, powerful shower just perfect for washing away the salt before an ouzo on the balcony and 'that' view.
The Look Out is a 100 paces from the sea and yet affording the best view of any villa of the gulf and Pithou, the small unihabited island opposite. We sat here most of the time just drinking in the blue, blue sea and sky, watching the little boats come and go. It is certainly one of the best views in 30 years of Greek travel.
The small bay/harbour of Ag. Sophia is great for swimming and the small bay 100m to the right is also lovely, and often deserted. As there are no cars on the island, and most travel around by small boat, or on foot (it's less than 1km across and 2.5 km long) it's essential to come here for nature, peace and quiet - no clubs, boom boom or nightlife to speak of, only the 2 tavernas at 10 minutes walk serving the freshest fish at very reasonable prices. A 'new' shop selling everything you could need in terms of food and drink has recently opened and makes a welcome addition to the services available for the holiday maker. There are ample cafes and amusements on the mainland if you really need a more cosmopolitan fix; the boat taxi will take you to Alogoropus, and a short taxi ride gets you to the bus service accessing the rest of the Pelion.
Trikeri is not the easiest island to get to, we managed with no car, and backpacks, but this is its virtue - imagine Robinson Crusoe with amenities - and the reason it stays as peaceful and quiet as it does. We rented a small boat to explore the island and nearby coast for some 'wild swimming', and some of the best adventures we've had. The water is so warm, and clear and still, we saw masses of marine life, and even an octopus whilst swimming in shallow waters.
If you long for the Greece of 30 years ago, and a place to unwind and enjoy the natural landscape, with the option of accessing more action if desired, this is the place for you. Thanks to Gail and Nic for having the foresight to choose such a lovely place, and then make it so easy to be there with their lovely villa - it was truly blissful.

Trikeri Island in the Pelion is the perfect place to unwind , quiet, peaceful, traffic free a haven of tranquillity. Perfect for those who like the simple pleasures of life. However if you can can bring yourself to leave it's beautiful tranquil beaches, there is a boat taxi to the mainland,where you will find Scuba diving in nearby Trikeri port, sailing and cycling in Milina and even skiing in the mountains of Pelion in winter.There are many good fish Tavernas in the area. The city of Volos is well worth a visit with it's waterside Tavernas and Ouzeris and fashionable shops. If you enjoy walking there many good walks through the olive groves or on beautiful coble stoned Donkey trails , you can take a Taxi to the top then walk winding your way down to the sea just in time for lunch or evening drinks in one of the traditional Tavernas .There many archaeological ruins including the old city of Volos where Jason set sail on is voyage to find the golden fleece.
