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.

About the neighbourhood
Makrinitsa is a village which clings to the mountainside at some 600-800m above the city of Volos. A traditional village steeped in history, as are most of Pelion’s villages, the main village square with the thousand year old plane trees and Greek ‘kafenia’ and tavernas is the perfect place for a morning coffee or an evening meal.
Must see / do:

- Visit some of the many traditional Pelion villages such as Portaria, Pinakates, Zagora and Lafkos
- Ride the Pelion train which has been in use since the 1800’s
- Swim in the crystal clear blue sea - especially the beaches on the Aegean coast
- Visit Volos, be it for the museums, churches, ‘tsipouradika’ meze bars, the nightlife or simply for a walk along the stunning seafront promenade
- Ski at Hania (winter time only!)
- Plastiras lake (1 hour...
