Location

Accomodation in PelionWe are located in the heart of Pelion at an altitude of 620 meters, the highest village of the Centaurs' mountain, who were the sons of the goddess Nefeli and Ixion. Aghios Georgios Nilias is a beautiful old village, with lush vegetation, abundant waters, fountains and cobblestone paths, nestled between two mountains. It offers wonderful views of the Pagasitic Gulf, located a stone's throw from Volos (21 km east of Volos, between Aghios Vlassios and Pinakates) and the most beautiful sights of Pelion. Thus, visitors combine genuine contact with nature at close proximity to the cosmopolitan city of Volos, 20 minutes away, where they enjoy a lively nightlife, interesting markets and very good food in local restaurants, tavernas and tsipouradika with fresh fish.

Chrissi Nefeli - PelionA walk in the village reveals impressive old mansions of traditional local architecture, like the mansions of Dereli, Ioannidis, Georgie (some of which have been renovated and turned into traditional hostels), a beautiful square of age-old trees, the church of St. George with the stone bell-tower and interesting icons-including one that depicts St. George enthroned (and not as a horse rider) and the ecclesiastical museum with old icons, vestments, utensils and books which are kept in the basement of St. George. In the village square the Museum of Art was founded by the famous local sculptor Nicholas Pavlopoulos.

Time passes pleasantly in the taverns and steak houses of the village, where locals and guests enjoy exceptional cuisine and local Pelion snaps, like tsipouro.

Accomodation in PelionNecessary stops are made at the beautiful active monasteries of the region, the Archangels Monastery, built in 1309 and today operating as a monastery, showcasing great icons, paintings and temple, the Monastery of Our Great Savior and the Monastery of the Holy Trinity. Also, theChurch of the Assumption (1744), and thechurch of Agios Athanasios (1795), the latter considered to be the first church built by the craftsman Zapaniotis or Zipaniotis in 1795 and is one of the finest examples of folk architecture of the 18th century.These great churches and monasteries are particularly attractive during Easter, when they are visited by many believers from all over Greece, who come to attend the holly mass and ceremonies that take place.
