Situated on the slopes of Mount Pelion in the quaint village of Agios Georgios Nileias is Villa Eris, a modern two-storey stone house that has been lovingly restored in accordance with Pelion's traditional architectural features. The villa can accommodate 6-8 guests and offers rustic charm with a contemporary touch in breathtakingly beautiful surroundings. Upon entering the villa, you will first notice the rich wooden floors and chunky furniture, along with the walls of white stone that contrast beautifully with colourful rugs and brightly patterned chairs. The living area is cosy and welcoming with comfy sofas and cushions in russet and grey tones, an open fireplace, and handsomely crafted wooden furniture, books, ornamental baskets and house plants. The rustic vibe is amplified by the original features; flagstone flooring and wooden panelled ceilings, juxtaposed with the modern amenities such as flatscreen TV, DVD player and Wifi.
The kitchen area maintains those same original features of wood and stone alongside all modern facilities, including electric oven and hob, sandwich toaster, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, and Nespresso coffee maker. The kitchen units are a modern grey against the white brickwork, and blend perfectly with the coloured rugs on the stone floors, and glossy red chairs around the dining table. There's extra seating at the small breakfast bar, which doubles as another food preparation surface, and plenty of storage areas. The ground floor also houses a bathroom with a walk-in shower, beautifully modern in design and decor with cool grey tiles, and modern style wooden benches on which to place towels and toiletries.
A beautifully crafted wooden staircase leads guests up the first floor where you'll find the three bedrooms. The two double rooms feature king-size beds with wrought iron frames, rich wooden floors and gorgeously chunky country-style furniture, including a chest and a bureau. The stone walls are a rich deep olive in one room, and a stunning terracotta shade in the other, both featuring crisp white linen with colourful patterned cushions and throws, and beautiful, quirky ornaments and artwork. The third room is decorated in beautiful shades of azure blue and white, and features two double beds and an ornamental fireplace. Again rich woods and patterned throws create a rustic, homely vibe and offer guests a wonderfully rested nights sleep. There is also a large bathroom on this floor featuring modern black and white tiled floors and walls, deep bath with shower attachment, and stylish modern lighting.
The grounds are accessible from both floors and guests will marvel at the incredible views of the Pagasitikos Gulf that Villa Eris has to offer. Stepping out into the private cobbled courtyard, surrounded by pretty flower beds, there is a quaint wooden dining table and covered wood stove for cooking and eating alfresco, and a well-tended lawn shaded by tall trees. On the decking, there are sun loungers on which to relax and recline beside your luxurious private Jacuzzi.
