Space 1,829 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Only three minutes by car to the beach / discount if booked without guesthouse

One of Pelion's best kept secrets, "Cliff House" is a very special vacation home, exuding a light and airy feel that will appeal to even the most discerning travelers. Designed with style, elegance and countless contemporary touches, vacationers seeking tranquility and relaxation - while not wanting to sacrifice comfort and coziness - will especially appreciate this amazing property. So will honeymooners and those who come for romance or any other special occasion that deserves to be cherished in this remarkable, pristine environment.

Situated on the south coast of Pelion (also named : "Pilio") near the village of Afeilianes, and framed by a dramatic rock formation, our villa provides unparalleled privacy and stunning 180 degree sea views. At the same time, the "Cliff House" is only 3 minutes by car from the nearest public beach (offering a mini market for your basic shopping needs) and 5 minutes by foot to one of the most lauded Tavernas in the region. A steep 15 minute hike through olive groves (time varies depending on your physical condition, of course) will take you down to a small, secluded beach with crystal-clear waters, which is otherwise only accessible by boat.

Privacy. Nature. The Sea. Romance.

The "Cliff House" offers a private master suite with a large bedroom / dressing area and bathroom as well as a large open kitchen / living room. An open loft on two levels is currently set up as an extra bedroom plus inspiring workspace / lounge area with a balcony overlooking the turquoise Aegean waters.

If you travel with another couple or grown-up kids, additional sleeping quarters are available in a separate, rustic wooden guest cottage up the hill. Set back approximately 30 meters (100 feet) from the main house, the cottage has two small rooms, a small bathroom and well equipped kitchenette, sleeping up to four people (will be somewhat tight for four adults, though). It also has a small terrace with gorgeous sea views and provides equal amounts of privacy due to it its distance from the main house. Please let us know in advance if you wish to only reserve the main house for a maximum of four people - without the guesthouse - and we will adjust the price, reducing it by 25 Euro per night. (The villa offers 145 m2, the guesthouse another 25 m2 of living space). In this case, the guesthouse will remain closed and not be rented out separately.

The "Cliff House" is accessible via a 150 meter-long gravel road, which is easy to negotiate, even with a basic rental car. Parking for several vehicles is available by the house.

Away from mass tourism, South Pelion is known for its pristine nature, beautiful beaches, authentic fishing villages and undisturbed hiking trails through green hills and olive pastures. Upon arrival, you will find hiking maps as well as our own personal recommendations for trips and other activities in the region. Internet, TV (only movies on DVD, in English and German) and a selection of books in English and German are also available.

Our property manager lives close by and speaks German, English and Greek fluently. He will personally welcome you upon arrival and provide you with an introduction to the house and grounds. In case of questions or problems, he is available 24/7.

An experience in beauty

"Cliff House" was originally built in 1985 by a German architect and then upgraded and re-envisioned in 2013 by a British architect. We bought the house in the autumn of 2017. Until we will be able to spend as much time there as we would like to, we are sharing it with like-minded individuals, who value the region's appeal - and this incredible home - as much as we do. After all, staying at the "Cliff House" is an experience in beauty. Guests booking their stay in 2018 will be able to enjoy brand new beds, mattresses, sofas, carpets, sheets and towels!

How to get there: Approximately 4 1/2 hours by car from Athens airport and about 3 1/2 hours by car from Thessaloniki Airport via well-developed highways. During the summer season, numerous charter / budget airline flights are also available to Volos, reducing the travel time by car (from Volos airport to South Pelion) to only about 2 hours.

Disclaimer: As this property is built into the slope of a mountain, and due to the open design of the inner staircase, the "Cliff House" is unfortunately not suitable for small children or for people with mobility problems - our apologies! Smoking, pets and parties or events are not permitted in the house. Please bring your own beauty products. Long term renters are welcome!

Please understand that we only accept bank transfers, because online payments cost an additional three percent of the rental price.

About Silke Tittel

My husband and I have been drawn to the Pelion region for years. We always knew we wanted to spend a good part of our retired life here. But until we are at that point (unfortunately, quite a few years away) we will be sharing the house with guests who appreciate it as much as we do.

Silke Tittel purchased this house in 2017

Why Silke Tittel chose South Pelion

The "Cliff House" was built by a German architect in 1985, and converted by a British architect in 2013 with a lot of vision and attention to detail. Therefore this house oozes a very different charm from more traditional vacation homes in Greece: It is large, airy, bright, open and offers inspiring views from every window.

What makes this house unique

The unique location amidst rock formations and sheltered by a cliff gives the visitor the feeling to be alone with nature. Nevertheless it is only 5 minutes by foot to the next restaurant and 3 minutes by car to the next beach.
