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 ,if you decide to visit and to enjoy a quiet and relaxing holiday in the house we rent.

Stathis purchased this villa in 2010

Why Stathis chose Magnisia/Pilion

Welcome to Pelion Homes!

Over the years our family has fallen in love with this beautiful mountain called Pelion in central Greece. For the past 40 years we have been spending several months a year in the village of Agios Giorgos Nilias enjoying the peace and the gentle pace of Mount Pelion.This mountain offers breathtaking views over the sea and is dotted by 34 charming little villages.The traditional houses, built of stone with slate roofs provide an idyllic setting all year round, with lush vegetation surrounding them.

All this time, many of our friends who stayed in the village as our guests loved this special place and some decided to acquire their own homes. On this occasion, we wanted to offer an opportunity for those who would like to visit Agios George Nilias, but do not own their home, to offer for short or longer period some of the houses we have built, equipping them with much care and love like they were made for us!

With great care in details, we have designed and equipped the interior of the houses as well as and the external verandas and gardens so that visitors feel at home and totally free to relax and take it all in. We invite our visitors to come and taste an unique and unforgettable way of exploring and come closer to nature!

In Pelion Homes we want you to FEEL LIKE home. This is our motto and our main concern!

What makes this villa unique

Fantastic view to the Gulf .

Garden and 2 verandas the one coved for outdoor meals etc.

The area where the house is situated is very quiet area. There is no traffic noise.

In 5 min walking ,you can reach the square of the village and the restaurants.

In 15 min walking ,you can reach the wonderful chestnut forest.

Ideal for children.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Villa Alonaki is a perfect retreat for a beautiful, peaceful and memorable holiday. We enjoyed our holiday in this charming, high-quality house, built at the mountains, with our four children (between 8 and 17) very much and we will never forget this wonderful, relaxing days. To sit on the "chilling" terrasse overlooking the Pagasetic Gulf, the blue sky and the green hills let us do "nothing", just relaxing and admiring. The house is beautifully furnished. Slow down and enjoy! It was a refreshment and a "renovation" for body, soul and spirit. It was so good, I'd prefer to keep it a secret! A truly memorable holiday.

A dreamhouse, ideal for family relaxing holidays

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 days at Alonaki Villa, but, when leaving, apart from feeling sad, we agreed that it felt like we had spent an entire week.

We started feeling like home from the first moment, and everything in the villa is so carefully planned that you can't help but feeling like home.

We are a couple with 2 kids, our younger one is 20 months old, and we had a baby bed all ready made up waiting for us, a baby chair, even a safety door for the stairs.

The fridge was full of goodies (eggs, milk, apples and oranges, butter, salami and Spanish jamon and chorizo), there was yummy toast bread and pasta, all kinds of spices and material to cook with, an espresso machine with 10 capsules of nespresso coffee, and the tap water, was of course, as in any Pelion village, potable and very good for the stomach and the skin. There was even a bottle of tsipouro and home made marmalade as a welcome treat.

There is a fireplace in the living room with all that is needed to light a fire, lots of cds for all kind of music tastes, even board games.

The location is amazing, facing Pagasitikos bay, and there are little treasures hidden in every room or balcony or little garden of this beautifull little house.

The Cocomat mattresses and pillows are of the best quality, and we also enjoyed the luxury of the bathroom Apivita products.

Stathis was very helpful and recommended very nice walks and excursions, he even helped us find goat milk from the shepherd of the area!

We honestly can't wait to go again with our friends.

Wonderful Mountain Villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

This contemporary, clean mountain villa is positioned high on the Pelion mountains, overlooking vast olive orchards, small villages and farms and beautiful ocean views. The location is both stunning and convenient, as you can be exploring little Greek villages in 10 minutes, or walking on any one of a dozen amazing beaches within a 40 minute drive. We were cared for wonderfully by Stathis, who provides his guests with maps and local information. We had every opportunity to find what was most interesting and accessible in the time we had available. We would love to go back.

The best place to stay in Pelion

  • 5 of 5

You can't find a better place to stay in Pilio and don't exaggerate.

The location is easy to reach and the view is breathtaking! You can gaze for hours the surrounding mountains and the infinite sea that lies under.

The place is super clean and well-maintaned. It's traditional character is perfectly matched with 5-star hotel comforts.

Everything we could possibly need was already there. Towels and sleepers for everyone, more than enough firewood for us to use. We found a fully equipped and clean kitchen. The fridge was full of eggs, milk and all the other things for breakfast. A variety of espresso cups for the espresso machine. I can hardly remember a better vacation nightsleep than the nightsleep in Villa Alonaki, thanks to the amazing beds. There's even an aromatherapy kit under every pillow!

Stathis, the super friendly and discreet host, helped us a lot with his restaurant and walking tour recommendations. He was there for everything we needed.

I could continue writing a thousand words for Villa Alonaki, but it's better live it than read it.

Definitely, we will stay again.

Nice property, amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We were in the cottage for two weeks with five people. Everything was well organized, we missed nothing. We have alternatingly made a trip one day and spent a day around Villa Alonaki to rest and read. What can I say? It is all as described and we lacked for nothing. Two minor notes: 1. As happens often these days the bedside lamps are very energy friendly and as a result do not generate enough light to read by. 2. Please do support the local vendors, they have great fresh vegetables and fruit. If you are staying longer and need a supermarket for stocking up: in Volos they have the AB supermarket that is the only one with an immense assortment of quality high quality food and drink in the neighborhood.

The managers were great and helpful. They presented us with a lovely booklet and two CD's of Greek music.

If you are Big People and you stay for a longer period of time it might become a bit small, but, frankly, you should be outside admiring the view anyway.

Stuning scenery, total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the villa Allonaki was an experience to be repeated: a very charming property, stunning views and very hospitable and helpful hosts! The property is excellently situated at the heart of Pelion and is very clean and stylishly decorated. You will certainly sleep well in the house, after having gazed at the stars of the Greek sky as seen from the countyside. The hosts, Stathis and Dimitris were extremely helpful and fully available to answer our numerous questions, throughout the duration of our stay. Our young childeen thouroughly enjoyed the garden at the little pool!

Felt like being in our own dream holiday house

  • 5 of 5

We visited Pelio and Pelion Homes to spend our first Christmas with our 3 month-old baby and had a wonderful time! Pelio is one of our favorite destinations in Greece during all year around.

Agios Georgios and the villages around are amongst the most picturesque and it's like travelling in time, while enjoying amazing walks in the forest and the apple trees following the old paths. This place really feels like the mythical home of Centauros! The village is built like a theatre with spectacular views of Volos gulf and the sunset and I must admit that from Alonaki (the house we rented) one can enjoy the best view while lying on a comfortable couch sitted on this wooden deck - extension of the yard!

Alonaki is a very cosy house with two bedrooms and one smaller one where our baby slept, all of them with a bathroom. There is a beautiful living room with fire place together with a kitchen which is very well equiped and an area with a dining table. we had breakfast in the balcony/garden as the weather was amazing gazing the sea and the village..and of course we very much enjoyed the deck! It felt like being in our own dream holiday house. Perfect place for relaxation, and escape from the city. Even our little one felt the difference and for the first time he slept 7 hours without waking up!!!

Stathis was the most friendly host. He gave us all these good advices about the area, the paths, the tavernas and he and his young son Orpheus made us feel even more at home.

We definitely recommend Pelion Homes!
