Guestbook comments from the manager
We stayed in this beautiful house and location in the Pelion Penisular - the house has everything we needed to feel like we were staying at a home from home. An such an amazing view to have our breakfast over. The place served as a great location to travel round the peninsular and our host helped organise a beautiful horse riding trip.
The peninsular has stunning beaches and beautiful forest if you are thinking of going and the Alonaki property was a great location to see it all from.
Cheers to the host
My name is Dimitri and I am an architect , and my wife Maria is an interior decorator.We live in Athens half the year round and the other half in Agios Georgios Nilias,our village in Pelion.
You will meet us ,if you decide to visit and to enjoy a quiet and relaxing holiday in the house we rent.
We will provide you with Maps, ideas & tips to explore Pelion according to your style. Ask for our tour suggestions.
We are a family who has fallen in love with this beautiful area.
For the past 30 years we have been spending many months each year in the village of Agios Georgios Nilias enjoying the tranquility and slow pace of this region in Pelion.
Over the years we have invited friends to share some time with us in the village,and the result has been that many have since, bought houses of their own ,in order to enjoy their holidays on and on.
We have decided to give this opportunity to those who do not have a property of their own, but who would love to spend their holidays in this beautiful village in the mountain in a peaceful way and feel like home.Therefore ,the house ,”Alonaki” ,that we offer for long or short lease has been designed and decoreated with care and love as if it were for us to live in.
We hope that you will like it.
