The Magnesia 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. The mountain villages also are worth a visit and there is rich birdlife. 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.

"Nicely appointed apartment in pretty untouristic rural seaside fishing village."
If you like off the beaten track locations this would be hard to beat. The apartment in an impressive house is well appointed with all round balcony views. A small beach ( with beach taverna) ideal fo… More
The small number of tourists is what makes Amaliapolis unique - you can really experience Greek village life here and as you say it is easy to reach other busier places if you feel the need for city life.

"Heaven is a Place on Earth!"
My friends and I are young college students, and absolutely loved our weekend trip to Amaliapolis, Greece. Christina is extremely helpful, as well as the housekeeper, and everyone in the village is extremely friendly and nice. We were given detailed instructions upon arrival at Volos Airport, and had the best taxi driver Christos take us to the villa.
The location is great for the price, and there is a nice strip of sandy beach within 10 minutes walking distance from the villa. Also, there are small bakeries, restaurants, grocery stores and a fruit shop where we were able to get fresh and delicious food. The people in the village mostly speak Greek, and it is a cash based town, but everyone is friendly and makes an effort to communicate no matter the level of English spoken.
Our trip went extremely smoothly, and everybody made an extra effort to make sure we had the best time possible. Christos was always on time, and emails were received with informative replies in a timely basis.
I would recommend this location to anyone visiting Greece. If you have the chance to rent a car, that may be helpful in taking day trips to nearby villages and landmarks.
We took a taxi to Athens for a day trip and loved seeing the city. Other places that I hope to return to see include Meteora, Volos, and Skiathos.
Overall, this is an excellent way for families, young travelers, and older individuals to see an authentic, relaxing place in Greece.

"Wonderful beach villa in authentic, beautiful, stunning Greek village."
I stayed in Amaliapolis at Villa Christina and I have to say it was one of my favorite vacations thus far. Having never heard of the town, my friends and I decided to take on an adventure and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The town is gorgeous, quiet, and the people are wonderful. Although there is a language barrier, every single member of the town waved hello and welcomed us into their village. We even got a tour of Athens from a local's sons! So much fun! The villa was fantastic! Well kept and we had a gorgeous view of the ocean and town from our balcony. It was spacious and Christina the owner was amazing and answered all of our questions prior to our stay. She arranged a cab for us as well. Everything about this village and villa is perfect: the food, people, beaches, prices...I definitely recommend everyone to stay here! Perfect for families, friends, and even college students like us.
