A love making story
“Boy meets girl, girl falls for boy…” Mom and dad met in the 70s and Pelion was short of a honey moon destination back then. Crushing on each other might not have been a big deal but they really loved the place. For those of you that dont know, Pelion is a hidden gem –slowly revealing everything it has to offer. Long after their marriage and still in love my parents built their own love nest in Pelion; a holiday residence seen as a short break refuge, a recourse of rejuvenation, a love making house!
On the Western slope of Pelion Agape provides an ideal and welcoming base to explore unspoiled Greek mainland in comfort and style. Local materials have been used to create a country-chic style with a sense of luxury you can afford, and with comfort and functionality. It consists of two double bedrooms and a single one, all with beddings free of charge. There are also two bathrooms with free toiletries –one of them with a shower cabin, and a large relaxation area with two bed sofas which can provide additional sleeping space. This lounge has also a fireplace and a bunch of historical, architectural and literature interest books, along with a mini bar to spend some quality time. Guests share common access to all public spaces in the house including a well equipped kitchen and a relaxation garden along with a large terrace with a dining table.
Kindly note that this is a non smoking property.
Location is special within a calm setting of olive groves and panoramic views of the Pelion Mountains but just 500 meters down to a sandy beach. It is only a minutes walk to the villages main beachfront boulevard with taverns, coffee shops, amenities stores and a pharmacy in case of emergency, while it is 5 away by car from the local public mooring if you are a boat owner. Easy to spot and accessible by car with plenty of parking space just outside, this property offers transportation convenience both from Volos city and to other destinations such as the Sporadic Islands, Plastira Lake or the world known Meteora Monastery Complex.
Kala Nera –it actually means clear water, is one of the 25 villages dotted throughout Pelion peninsula map. Situated 18klm from the port city of Volos next to the Pagasetic Gulf it has been a popular tourist destination for Greek visitors during the 80s. It is less known outside Greece and well suited for families and groups wanting something more than the classic beach holiday caged in faceless resorts. A shopping or a night walk in the city of Volos is worthwhile and there are regular bus services linking the village to the city. Although some of Greeces most famous beaches lie at the foot of Pelion at approximately 30 drive, it is also possible to do horse riding, mountain biking, sailing etc. This place, full of myths, is best known for the many forested paths enjoyed by hikers who return regularly throughout the year. There are beautiful walking paths close by not to be missed and visits to old churches and the famous Miniature Train!
