About the property

Enjoy the atmosphere of Kalivi Elena on the beautiful peninsula Peilion

Kalivi Elena has been rebuilt from a partly collapsed small kalivi into a holiday house for 2 persons. A kalivi is a traditional, mostly built of stone, cottage in the countryside where the farmers' families would stay when they were working on their land. Goats, chickens and rabbits slept downstairs and the people upstairs would benefit from their warmth.

There is an open mezzanine bedroom with double bed, which has good quality, comfortable matress. The fully equipped, large kitchen is built in traditional style but with all modern comforts. A large refrigerator with freezer, a dishwasher, four-burner electric stove and everything you need to not only for breakfast, but also to prepare a delicious dinner. The kitchen is large enough to allow comfortable eating inside. The living room has two armchairs that can be converted into two single spare beds. There is a functional fireplace and air conditioning. In the bathroom downstairs, formerly the shelter for the animals, a spacious shower, sink and toilet is fitted. Towels, beach towels, bed linen, tea towels and hair dryer are all provided.

Outside you will be happily surprised to find a hot/cold shower, where you can enjoy showering with sea views in all privacy!!! There is also a small shed with garden tools, laundry rack and BBQ. On the sun terrace one can enjoy the surrounding nature and the view of the sea and the mountains of Evia. Under a big tree near the Kalivi, there is also a shaded terrace with 2 loungers. Still not convinced? Check out the pictures.

About Hélène Dielen

Some time ago my husband and I decided to buy a house on the beautiful Pelion peninsula. At the same time we where offered a piece of land with an old, partly collapsed kalivi (stone house) and the idea was born for Kalivi Elena. Now only a few years later, the Kalivi has been fully restored and now comprises a full equipped holiday home. We are honored to welcome guesst and make them enjoy their stay in Kalivi Elena in Pelion, the unspoilt and totaly traditional Greece.

Hélène Dielen purchased this house in 2016

Why Hélène Dielen chose South Pelion

The wild land with centuries-old olive trees enchanted us immediately. The sound of the wind in the high pine trees is often the only sound you hear. We would like to share our passion for this part of Pilion with people who, like us, appreciate this unique tranquillity.

What makes this house unique

Beyond where most tourists come, the real Greece begins: South Pelion. This is where the real nature and peace seeker feels at home.
