About Stathis

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 and my son Stathis 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.

Stathis purchased this villa in 2009

Why Stathis chose Magnisia/Pilion

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 ,”Selini” ,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.

What makes this villa unique

Fantastic view to the Gulf .

Big garden 2000 m2 and two verandas the one coved for outdoor meals etc.

very quiet area with no traffic at all. Ideal for children.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My friends and I, stayed 3 days at Villa Selini. From the outset the house gave the impression of a real home. It was very cosy and warm – which was very important given the period we stayed (winter with a bit of snow). The fireplace creates a very nice atmosphere to hang out with your friends and play board games and cards. The kitchen was fully equipped and allowed us to cook and bake. Also the kitchen table offers you a great sea view to sit there and enjoy your breakfast in the morning. Although the weather did not allowed us to sit outside, the exterior is very nice and the view is breathtaking, even in winter. The owner was very friendly and welcoming, eager to tell us things about the area and helped us with restaurants, activities etc. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with your friends close to nature, then villa Selini is the perfect place to be.

Dreamy Villa in Pelion

  • 5 of 5

Villa Selini is located in one of the most amazing places in Pelion. The house itself was better than what we could imagine, winning our hearts from the moment we arrived with the lavender and the chocolate on our pillows, with a generally very friendly atmosphere, beautiful decoration and a breathtaking view. The owner, Stathis, always there for everything we needed, prepared for us lovely breakfast meals and dinners for our yoga retreat, and even joined us at our practices!

I did't want to leave, so i am definately going back very very soon!

Don't miss out on the experience!

Amazing property, amazing location, amazing hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 adults and 3 kids that stayed at Selini Villa for Christmas and we would definetely recommend! It is more than fully equipped - the hosts have thought of everything from Greek tea blends to outdoors BBQ! The property is clean and well-mantained, our host was extremely helpful and reachable & there are many things to keep the whole family entertained around the area - whether it is hiking, horse riding or just walking around traditional Greek villages.

The view is one thing that will keep us warm and relaxed throughout 2017!

Most fantastic staying in Greece

  • 5 of 5

Pelion home is the located in the side of the mountain facing the most stunning view of sea, mountain and the beautiful village. The design of the house make it more spacious than it actually is. There are six of us staying, we feel we have room for even 10 people.

The hospitality is incredible. The owner has been very thoughtful in almost everything, including giving road instruction, suggesting activities and surrounding facilities. When I see a booklet of all information provided with warm welcome with my name on it, I was so touched! There are also two CDs of greece traditional music.

There are nice beaches with 15 minutes drive. We did SUP yoga in the nearby beach. The beach is warm and calm.

We loved the view, the place, the silence, the house and all Pelion! It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and big enough for 2 families, the view from the terasa is breathtaking. We spend some nice mornings and evenings on the terasa, one time we cooked on the wood oven. All the area is nice, the village is quite, has some nice tavernas with tasty homemade food, like the grandma is cooking. We made some trips around the coast, nice roads with view on the see and beatiful panorama. The owner and his father were really nice and helpful. We enjoyed every minute and really charged our baterrys!

The ultimate place to go!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is excellent, with a supreme view and a wonderfull garden. In fact, one of my favourite spots is the spacious terrace, where you can share moments of fun, while, eating and drinking with friends. Its interiors are designed, so as, to feel cosy and relaxed, respecting the Greek traditional architecture of the area. The villa is very comfortable, fully equipped and that clean as if you are at your own house! Not to speak about the owners..lovely people, you just want to become their friends!
