Sheltered from the Meltemi in the calm Pagasitiko Gulf lies the pretty fishing village of Mitzella. Completely off the beaten track and unknown to the vast majority of foreigners, Mitzella takes one back several decades to a time when Greece was a quieter, simpler place. Across the bay rise the mountain ranges of Pelion and the island of Skiathos; the wonders of Meteora are just over an hour away, as is Thermopylae, the Byzantine glories of Salonika are 2 ½ hours away, Delphi is a short trip by car. This is an opportunity to explore a beautiful and lesser known part of Greece. The property, which consists of a main house and a guest cottage, is set in terraced grounds dropping down to the sea, where guests are offered two jetties; a wooden one for boats to dock at and a concrete one dressed with deckchairs and a lovely shaded area with cushioned seating. A tiny sandy beach next to the jetty is great for small children, while other small, shingle beaches are accessed along a footpath. The house also has a pool surrounded by lawn, a tennis court and a speedboat. Designed to follow the contour of the hill on which it is built, the villa offers spacious rooms, terraces and balconies galore and above all, lovely views of the water and beach 30m below. Steps lead down through the garden to the pool, and then continue down to the shore. Wrap around terraces offer different seating, eating and lazing areas for a large group of people.The villa has just been extensively renovated, though keeping the original concept that preserves the Pelion style of hand-made roof-tiles, whitewashed walls, wooden balconies and ceilings, and stone floors. The space, privacy and proximity to the sea make this an ideal house for relaxing with family or friends.

This is one of those special homes where memories are made. The sound of the sea whispering to you just seconds away, wonderous aromas from the kitchen fill the villa as our chef creates magic and guest migrate pinching freshly baked breads or pastries, all day swimming and water sports, boat rides to the various bays or islands or lazy relaxing days just reading a book on the private beach or jetty. Total seclusion and serenity, cocktails at sunset on the deck, dining under the stars by candelight with the warm Mediterranean breeze blowing through your hair while you sip an unbelievably good Greek Merlot....Yes, this home is the one you wished you lived in. And now it can be yours for a short while, it is indeed a home where memories are made and dreams do come true.
