Location description from owner

The Magnesia Region

In Greek mythology, Mount Pelion (which took its name from the mythical king Peleus, father of Achilles) was the homeland of Chiron the Centaur, tutor of many ancient Greek heroes,
such as Jason, Achilles, Theseus and Heracles.

Today, beautiful landscapes, rich forested mountain slopes, villages hidden in verdure, steep gorges and cliffs, impressive mountains, melodiously flowing waters and charming beaches are just some of the features of the exquisite nature of Pelion, the mountain that is suitable for visiting all year long offering unique images of morphological transitions and contradictions that remain memorable.

On summer, the mountain resembles paradise. The greenery offers breeze while the trees offer shade and rest, the wildflowers and herbs offer scent and accompany the walks while the beaches are filled offering to visitors lifetime swimming experiences. The view from above towards the distant and serene blue horizon is magical while the striking sunsets and the cool nights under the clear sky moonlight, awake the senses.

During autumn, the most dismal period of the year, the mountain has its own special beauty. The trees prepare to get rid of their leaves and the green color gives away to the colors of the rainbow. The rich chestnut and walnut trees come into picture with squirrels intensively working on top of them while the rains and the strong winds create an atmosphere of melancholy and contemplation.

Winter finally finds here the best refuge since plentiful snow leads to imposing mountain peaks. In the area of Agrioleukes, around the surviving beech and pine trees is the Ski center, which is inundated with thousands of winter sport fans. However, milder temperatures and more vegetation are present in most lowland areas of Pelion that enjoy gentler winters.

Agios Lavrentios

Agios Lavrentios is one of the oldest villages of the centaurs Mountain. It is a mountainous region of unique beauty in Central Pelion only 20km away from the city of Volos with exceptional view towards the Pagasetic, ideal for peaceful and relaxing holidays around nature and for short weekend breaks.

Agios Lavrentios has more churches apart from Agios Lavrentios that wait to be discovered. Go for a walk by the Metropolitan church of Agios Dimitrios located in the main square, the small basilica church of Agios Athanassios and the chapel of Panagia Souravlou, dedicated to the Life-giving Spring. Also visit the cross-shaped church of Agios Apostolos O Neos, the local saint, with its famous bell tower and the small amphitheater aside. Here, every year on 15 and 16 of August, a festival takes place and hundreds of believers come to venerate the Timia Kara (Holy Head) and fulfill their vows towards the miraculous saint.
In the area, finally, there is a cave that is believed to be the domicile of Centaur Chiron, and is one of the major attractions of the village. Dare to visit and discover the mystical atmosphere that surrounds the place.

The village, hosts various cultural events and festivals. One of them is the cherry festival, which has local dances and songs taking place every June at the village square. However the main event the village is famous for is the the "music village" festival a series of musical events taking place every August with concerts and workshops and with the participation of important artists from all over the world that give to the village a different note.
