Have you ever dreamed of spending your holidays in a peaceful, traditional stone-built house, which is 120 years old, tucked and hidden in a vast olive grove, with 15 different kinds of trees, a big swimming pool and amazing views to the surrounding mountains and hills?Do you love the idea of being in a safe but secluded and peaceful haven, strategically situated between hills and sea, but with easy access to everything which you need (only 12 km from the modern university city of Volos)?If your answers to the above are in the affirmative, you have found the right place in our property!!Villa Olive will cater to your every need for that ideal escapade which you have been planning for. It is one of only three villas located in an area of 2 square km without any disturbances from traffic noise or human activities. Ideal for those who are looking to just lie back and relax, we are sure the big swimming pool which is surrounded by an enormous garden of palm trees, fruit trees (cherry, apricot, fig, plum and peach) and fragrant roses, will prove too inviting to be resisted. You can swim and splash in the pool while admiring the spectacular views of the nearby mountains while the meat is being cooked on a specially designed BBQ pit, ready to be enjoyed outdoors with only the sky as your canopy. There is also a shaded bar (without drinks!) next to the pool for you to cool down in the afternoons – a perfect place to chat and drink to your hearts' content!The villa is a two-story building which consists of 2 double bedrooms, 1 living/sitting room with a fireplace (which can be converted into a bedroom with 2 good quality sofa beds), a kitchen with small dining area, 3 shower rooms (1 ensuite) with sinks and toilets.

Both rooms have windows with magnificent views of the surrounding area. The interior design is a combination of chic rustic elements to the traditional approach, taken into account every single detail with the aim to sustain 'harmony' with its original features and not to overlap and cluster with the powerful beauty of the natural materials of white and grey stones, deep brown wood and rustic shade of marble. The interior decoration fuses cozy traditional elements with stylish eclectic finishes.

Just 10-minute walk away from the villa, you will find the nearest beach, with calm and clean waters of the Pagasitikos Gulf, and enjoy the Greek Tavernas there which serve excellent local delicacies. If you prefer to explore the traditional villages of the nearby Mount Pelion, a panoramic drive of only 20 minutes will bring you to a slice of Greece which is so authentic and rich in traditions that you will be forgiven for thinking that you have travelled back in time.
We have explored every single part of the mountain and will be more than happy to share all our beloved “secrets” of this land with you. Many paths and tracks start just outside the villa itself and will lead you to “hidden gems” which even the locals do not know of. You can trek on cobbled paths which link the mountain villages where it is likely that you will not even encounter a single car. You will walk through mountain streams which rush down the valleys to the sea and dense forests which are home to wild boars. For those who are interested in these excursions and hikes on mountains, we are able to make the arrangements for you, with local guides to suit your schedule and preference.
If walking/hiking up the mountain is not your cup of tea, what about a spectacular trip on the steam train of Pelion? The departure point of the train is only 10-minute walk from the villa (Ano Lechonia) and after 16 km on the train where you will cross arched bridges and pass through quaint, picturesque villages, you will arrive at a village called Milies. This is a really unique way to explore the breathtaking nature of Pelion at slow speed (25km/h).
Once you have had enough of lounging by the pool and exploring the mountain villages, you can take a 45-minute drive to discover the dramatic coastline of the Aegean Sea, with some of the loveliest beaches in Greece. There is a vast selections of amazing beaches with blue-green waters, crowded or serene, rocky or sandy, all of which are easily accessible by car. Once again, we will be more than happy to organize the scenic drives to these unique places for you.
If you are eager to explore more of the highlights of the area, from the port of Volos, you can take a trip to the Sporades Islands (Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonissos) and spend a few days at these popular pearl-islands of the Aegean Sea.
We are a very well travelled couple and we understand that you may have many questions when planning your holidays in a foreign land/place. Just let us know what you are looking for in your holiday and we may be able to offer you suggestions to assist you in your plans. We can even arrange for airport transfer from Athens to our villa if you prefer not to drive all the way.
Other seasonal activities which may be arranged in this area include ski mountaineering, cross country ski, downhill skill during winter and horse riding, bicycle tours, sailing, hiking, trail running during all other seasons.
Volos and Mount Pelion have been favourite tourist spots for the Greeks but they remain undiscovered by many Europeans. We are more than happy to share this beautiful place with you, by offering you an idyllic accommodation which is close to all the major highlights.
