Magnisia/Pilion Villa Rental Photos and Description

Romantic 3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms villa, - 20 minutes drive to nearest beach.

The Old Stone House is ideally situated at the edge of Vysitza, one of the very famous historic Pelion mountain villages, 450m above sea level. The house is easily accessible with 3 parking spaces right outside the garden door, from where stairs lead down to the property. Due to its unique location on the side of the mountain, the house is surrounded by breathtaking mountain and sea views that can be enjoyed from two large verandas and all around the spacious garden. The property offers 3 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (2 of which are en-suite) and additional sleeping space in the large upstairs sitting room. The interior has been lovingly and carefully decorated with local antiques in line with the traditional style of the house, and offers excellent amenities for a relaxed and enjoyable holiday - this includes a library of English and German books, unlimited WiFi, TV/DVD with a library of DVD titles, and board games. The kitchen is well equipped with a new Miele ceramic hob and oven, a Miele washing machine, a fridge/freezer, a Thermos coffee machine, mixer, toaster, juicer and a vast selection of cooking utensils. The outdoors original stone oven is also fully functionable and offers a new cooking experience for every hooby cook. Hence, both cooking and eating al fresco adds to a relaxed holiday with friends and family. The benefit of a genuine old stone house is the thickness of its walls (nearly 1m at parts), which keeps the house cool in summer and warm in winter - artificial air condition is therefore not needed. The beautiful and peaceful village square of Vysitza with its tavernas is only a 10min.walk away from the house. The beautiful and family-friendly beaches of the Pagasitic Gulf can be reached within 20min. by car, other famous beaches on the side of the Aegean Sea like Milopotamos or Damouchari are approx. 40min away. (all routes offer spectacular views).

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • pets considered
Guestbook comments from the owner
Als Griechenland Fans hatten wir nach dem Besuch vieler Inseln, diesmal Pelion zum Ziel. Wir hatten uns gut informiert und viel ueber die wilde romantische Landschaft und seinen alten Herrenhaeusern gelesen. Das Glueck wollte es, dass wir gleich dieses Haus kennen-und lieben-lernten. Jeder Tag war ein Erlebnis, mitten in der Natur, ein Garten mit bunten Blumen und mit Fruechte behangene Obstbaeume. Der Ausblick von jeder der beiden Terrassen war ueberwaeltigend. Links in der Ferne das Meer, rechts ein aufsteigender Wald und geradeaus eine steile Felswand. Absolute Stille, die nur in der Nacht durch die Laute kleiner Wildtiere unterbrochen wurde. Pelion ist ein anderes Griechenland. Das "Old Stone House" hat dazu beigetragen das es einer unserer schoensten Urlaube wurde.

VYZITSA OLD STONE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Old Traditional Pelion stone house in Vyzitsa. The villa is elegant, nicely appointed and very comfortable. The view from the living room and the terrace is unsurpassed. It was a wonderful long weekend for us and our friends and we highly recommend for others and hope to be back ourselves!

Owner's Response: We and our housekeeper take great pride in not only maintaining our high standards but also trying to find imaginative ways to continously improve our property. We aim to give our guests the feeling of staying at a home rather than just a rented villa, and we are glad if feedback confirms that we achieved it. We will continue our efforts to give our guests a warm welcome in The Old Stone House.

COMFORTABLE AND SPACIOUS HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
We have been in Pelion for the 6th time. By far the 'old stone house' was the best place we have used as our home. The house is spacious, comfortable and had all we needed.

We would recommend the house to everyone! (with healthy legs)

THE BEST PLACE TO STAY IN PELION

  • 5 of 5
We were two couples with three teenagers and we were very comfortably suited in the house. We had cozy evenings by the fire in the living room and private night sleeping in the bed rooms.
The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The view from every window is spectacular.
We walked many trails in the area and on the other side of the mountain. The location of the house was perfect for any one-day trip because you can easily get to any point of interest in 20-40 minutes driving. The village has a grocery shop and in the next village, Milies, there is a very good bakery. There are also many restaurants in the area.
The owner is remarkably nice and cooperative.

ROMANTIC RETREAT IN MOUNT PELION

  • 5 of 5
We spent a few days in the old stone house and had a fabulous time trekking around mount Pelion. The house is very conveniently located 5 min walk from the centre of Vizitsa and the view of the sea (Pagasitikos gulf) is breathtaking. We felt really at home, spending our evenings by the wood stove, enjoying a drink after a nice dinner in the tavernas of the village. We definately want to go back again especially when Pelio is full of snow!

HOLIIDAY IN VIZITSA

  • 5 of 5
We were on holiday in this old stone house last July. It was amazing. The house is situated at the end of the village and in front of you have unbelievable panorama. The conditions are perfect - the house is really very well equiped. Thanks a lot for the chance to be your guest and hope to visit you again this summer.

EXCELLENT HILLTOP RETREST

  • 5 of 5
This house, situated in the hills of the Pelion Peninsula is a wonderful treasure - a quiet and relazing place to stay and explore the Pelion region and Thessaly. Not for the faint of heart if you are afraid of mountain roads or heights but it is well equipped and situated in a lovely mountain town. It was the perfect place for our first trip to Greece. The beaches were not close so it not a beach house setting. There are walking trails, hiking, a chance to visit the entire peninsula and within a short (2 1/2 hr.) drive of Mt. Olympus. The owners are very helpful and have supplied information about the locale. The description was very accurate. I would recommend this house to hikers or people who want to relax. It is not disability friendly.

The Old Stone House is the last house of Vysitza on the road to Pinakates (left hand side of the road). From the road one can only see the a simple garden door with number 173, the stairs leading down the property and the stone roof of the house. Due to its location at the edge of the village the property is very private and can not be overlooked. At the same time the center of the village can be reached in 10min walking distance.
