Mountains and sea - Pelion is an area for all seasons.
Its centre is a mountain ridge of forested peaks dotted with traditional Greek villages and on either side of , translucent coves and wonderful beaches.
Ancient footpaths and time worn mule tracks strewn with wild flowers in spring and criss-crossed by streams and waterfalls .
In Winter when snow the peaks of the mountain are often snow covered and the skiing takes on a whole new experience when your view is the beautiful Aegean Sea. Xmas spent in front of wood burning fireplaces eating roasted chestnuts is a magical experience.
In Spring as the slopes fill up with the beautiful white flowers of apple, almond trees, and cherry blossoms. Gardens fill withof roses, carnations, garnenias, mums and other less known fantastic varieties of flowers expecting the Holy days of Easter when many Greek Orthadox ceremonies take place in the village streets inviting visitors to understand the traditional cultures of Greek village life.
Summer is quite simple paradise - hot beaches and cool mountains, the squares are full of chairs and tables set under shady sycamore trees. The beaches surrounding the Gulf of Pagasitikos and the Aegean sea are full of Greek tourists enjoying the finest Greece has to offer its holiday makers. The only disadvantage worth mentioning is the need to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Autumn is cooler but quieter. Visitors can still enjoy swimming or relaxing on far-away beaches but prices are lower and services faster.
