A place blessed by the Gods, a majestic mountain, mysterious and beautiful. Legends and traditions have attempted to describe it. Though there are many ways of spelling the name, they all relate to this unique and beautiful region in Greece that is a perfect destination for holidays throughout the year.
The beautiful Pelion peninsula is situated in the prefecture of Magnesia in Thessaly, Central Greece, and offers visitors memories and holidays that they will never forget. Stunning scenery, luscious nature, silky sandy beaches, crystal clear sea, the snow capped mountain, spring water falls, winding cobble-stoned paths... all images that will stay with you forever and be cherished whenever you think back to your time spent here in Pelion.
Scattered across the Peninsula are over 70 Pelion villages, all varying in size, from the famous mountainous villages of Tsagarada, Portaria and Zagora, to the beautiful coastal resorts of Kala Nera, Milina and Platanias. Pelion is full of magic and scenes of extreme beauty, and is the ideal destination to visit all year round.
During the summer there are many lovely beaches where you can visit, with sparkling crystal clean waters and golden sandy beaches. The blue waters of the Pagasetic Gulf and Aegean Sea are simply superb, and are perfect for bathing, water sports and relaxation.
Pelion is also cooler than other parts of Greece during the summer, especially, the more mountainous villages. Mountain activities such as horseback riding, mountain trekking, taking a ride on the steam train of Pelion, nightlife and indulgence in the local traditional cuisine, local customs, celebrations and cultural events make it an all time loving destination.
During the winter, there is the famous ski center of Agriolefkes near the village of Hania, where as well as offering top class skiing facilities, you can enjoy many other winter activities such as snowboarding, and artillery ski.
They say that Pelion was chosen by the Gods as their resort. When you visit this amazing region of Greece, you will certainly see that the Gods indeed had impeccable taste.
