Description from owner
Olive Store Cottage was originally built as a 'kalivi', a farm building for storing produce, sheltering animals and for the owners to live when working the land.
Αρ. Μητρώου Ακινήτου 587051 / Registery for Short-Term Rental in Greece.
In 2005 it was carefully and lovingly restored as a simple but beautiful holiday cottage. It has two large double bedrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs. A cosy living and dining room with log burning stove. There is a well equipped kitchen and family bathroom with shower on the ground floor. The upstairs bedroom has an ensuite toilet and washbasin. Outside a covered terrace to enjoy shady summer living and cool evenings.
The owners house is about 70 meters away, and they are on hand to help you enjoy your holiday. Altogether the property is set within 3 acres of gardens, olive grove, orchard and woodland. We overlook the Aegean Sea and in the distance the island of Evia.
At the head of a beautiful valley in the south of the Pelion peninsula, we are in a small hamlet called 'Randi' just 5 minutes by car from the seaside village and harbour of Platania and from the 'hidden mountain village' of Promyri. This is a fabulous area, relatively undeveloped. It offers visitors excellent beaches, fabulous nature and wildlife. It is a popular area for hiking at any time of year except for the hottest months when the clear warm sea, quiet sandy beaches and wonderful harbourside tavernas will tempt you. In the winter there is a small friendly ski resort at Hania on Mount Pelion.
The owners are happy to help you plan hikes in Pelion and in summer to take you on their small (6 metre) traditional sailing boat 'Kaliope' to explore hidden beaches.

“Wonderful peaceful hideaway”
This cottage is tucked away in a peaceful and unspoilt part of rural Greece. We stayed at the end of Autumn, escaping from the wet and windy onset of winter in UK and had a lovely week with plenty of … More
“A peaceful, hidden treasure in the heart of a countryside surrounded by natural beauty.”
October - what a fantastic time to visit the Olive Store Cottage. Blue skies, luscious vegetation, an huge variety of flowers and empty beaches! The district had everything we could have wanted, in ab… More
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your kind review. You summarised the beauty of this area in early autumn perfectly. Pelion does have the ability to welcome you in it's arms and to embrace you in its peaceful nature, warmth, culture and beauty. For many, including us it draws you back and now we live here. It is our greatest pleasure to meet people like you and share some of the many delights of first acquaintance. We hope to welcome you again anytime of year. Best wishes, Chris and Kathryn
“Lovely cottage in a wonderful setting.”
As returning visitors we've just had another great break in this lovely comfortable cottage. Comfortable beds and good showers, one of which is outside. We spent much of our time outside but it… More
Owner's reply: We are always happy to welcome returning visitors and sometimes we get a chance to share some activities together, out on our boat and on this occasion to climb to the top of Tissaio mountain, (the highest peak in South Pelion). We very much enjoyed your visit and are delighted to receive your feedback from your stay. Thank you both and we hope to see you again before too long. Best wishes, Chris and Kathryn
“Una favola .... per tutti i sensi!!”
Siamo tornati nel Pelion dopo tre anni e non potevamo scegliere un ritorno migliore!! Il rustico ristrutturato da Chris e Kathryn è meraviglioso, curato in ogni particolare e fornitissimo (docc… More
Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely review. It was a real pleasure to welcome you and your family to the cottage. Although your stay was short we enjoyed two sailing trips with you and spent a wonderful evening as your guests at a wonderful Italian barbecue. So you arrived as visitors and left as friends. It happens like that sometimes and it is always a pleasure. Best wishes Chris and Kathryn.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review. We were delighted you enjoyed staying at the cottage and discovered some of the magic of this place. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. With best wishes, Chris and Kathryn.

“Paradise in the Pelion”
Just loved our stay at Olive Store Cottage. An absolute perfect ‘get away from it all’ stay in Paradise. The cottage is spotlessly clean and very spacious; being rustic and utterly charm… More
Owner's reply: Thanks for an excellent and informative review. We are delighted chose the relatively unknown Pelion for your first visit to Greece and we hope you decide to return to us in the future. The world of course is a big place but for many they make a special connection with Pelion and Platanias and become regular visitors. If you decide to come again we will be delighted to welcome you. The recently open Tembi tunnels on the Thessaloniki to Athens motorway has reduced the driving time. We normally make the journey without breaking any speed limits in under 4 hours, but if you have a week or more in the Pelion there is no need to rush! We hope to meet again sometime. Best wishes, Kathryn and Chris
“A truly unspoilt and beautiful area of Greece”
We spent a week here at the start of a 3 week holiday around mainland Greece and wish we could have stayed longer. Olive Store Cottage is beautiful with so many added extras that make your stay extra … More
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. We enjoyed your company and very much hope you are able to return again before too long. Best wishes, Chris and Kathryn
“Fabulous 10 days”

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review and kind words. We enjoyed your visit greatly and learned some useful sailing tips from your racing experience! We have long believed that those who are willing to undertake the longish drive to get here will then reap the benefit of sharing our beautiful, natural. peaceful little piece of paradise. We look forward to your next visit. Best wishes, Chris and Kathryn
