Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 12
This attractive villa stands on the edge of the village but is only 7 minutes walk from the sandy beach and also the village centre where you will find tavernas, cafes and local shops.
It offers very flexible accommodation making it ideal for friends or family groups who like to holiday together but who also want some privacy.
If you are less than 12 people we offer special rates for smaller parties who may not wish to use all the accommodation offered. There are many balconies with lovely views over the surrounding olive groves and, from the 2nd floor, of the sea. Located just south of Volos, the villa makes an ideal base for visiting sites such as Delphi and Meteora, and also the Pelion peninsula.
Come and experience the real Greece!

The Mainland Greece region
This part of the Greek mainland has much to offer the visitor with beautiful seaside villages, sandy undeveloped beaches and forested mountainous areas with traditional settlements to explore - all largely unaffected by international tourism.
The city of Volos is a lively university town well known for its 'tsiopuradika' - small restaurants where you can drink the local ouzo 'tsipouro' and sample the mezze that come with it - a sort of Greek tapas. It also offers hydrofoil links to Skiathos, Alonissos and Skopelos where 'Mama Mia' was filmed.
The Pelion peninsula is well worth a visit with spectacular scenery and a ski-resort in winter.
If you want to venture further afield both classical Delphi (approx 120km) and the Byzantine monasteries of Meteora (approx 180km) make fascinating excursions as does the lesser known but stunning archaeological site of Dion (approx 170km). It is also possible to visit Vegina and Pella near Thessaloniiki for those who are keen on archaeology.
In the centre of Amaliapolis you will find a choice of cafes/bars and tavernas, with excellent fish within walking distance of the villa. The village also has two bakeries and two general stores. The beach is also about 7 minutes walk from the villa and is sandy and gently sloping - making it very suitable for young children. There is also a children’s playground, 5-a-side football pitch and volleyball court next to the beach. There are 2 beach bars which also provide sun loungers for the price of a drink.
As well as the sandy village beach there are several good beaches within a 30 minute drive dotted around the west side of the Pagasitic Gulf. You can also take a boat trip to the island of Skiathos with its famous sandy beaches. The area of Magnesia is rich in archaeological sites including Prehistoric Dimini, Sesklo and Dimitras.

Struggle to disagree with anything in the listings for this place. The owner was a pleasure to work with & all the further info we had after booking was faultless. The house was spotless on our arrival, it is set off the quiet road into the village about 50m down a dirt track which wasnt a problem even for our tiny peugot rental car. there is a view from the 2nd floor terrace/balcony across the village rooftops out into the gulf & most days a nice breeze so great for evenings cool downs with a g& t after a day on the beach the village itself is a 3 min walk to a small bridge where left & a further 2 mins take you to shops (basic but enough) & a few tavernas or right & a further 2 mins takes you to the small beach with its 2 well appointed but not noisy bars which cater for your beach needs with sun beds drinks & snacks.
Night time in Amaliapolis doesnt really happen much before 9:30 & during our 2 weeks we ate at most tavernas at least twice (perhaps limited choices but great fresh food). Out & about the local towns, city (Volos), & small villages are all very rural but equally charming. One word of warning would be that we never saw another English person the whole time, so if you go expecting to find a copy of the sun a pint of carling & a full english breakfast you will be sadly dissapointed. On the other hand if you want to interact & perhaps try out your dodgy Greek I cant imagine a nicer place to go, everyone we met was friendly & always eager to help. The UK we came back to seemed a far more hectic place.....
