Additional amenities & feature info
Downstairs the reception room with open-plan kitchen is the perfect place to dine, or to relax on the L-shaped sofa and watch movies on the LCD flat screen TV. The sofa opens into a double bed while the large bathroom with Italian sanitary ware and exposed mountain rock (yes that’s how they used to build here!) is a joy to use. Upstairs is the traditional ‘Sala’ and the two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen-sized double bed, while the other has two single beds with a traditional fireplace in the middle. The Sala is a comfortable living area with plenty of seating for relaxation and six large arched windows which provide panoramic views over Volos and the surrounding area.
