Beachfront Villa At The Foot Of Mount Olympus In Greece



Updated: 22-Oct-2016
A Beautiful Beachfront Villa with Breathtaking Views - 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 8

At the foot of Mount Olympus, just by the sea of Thermaikos gulf, the Villa Platamonas awaits you all through the year to offer you unforgettable holidays. A beautiful villa that combines comfort with elegance and makes the most of its location in front of the Aegean sea.There are olives trees galore, figs, pomegranates, grapes and the full range of wild herbs. Feel free to help yourself!

In the summer the wildflowers are breathtaking. From the villa there is no better view of the Aegean Sea, Mount Olympus and the Byzantine Castle where, during the summer, performances, music concerts and other cultural events take place within the frame of the Olympus Festival. Even the sun sets in precisely the right spot. The bays and beaches are perfect for both children and strong swimmers and, apart from June, July and August, you may well have the whole beach to yourselves.

The village of Platamonas is a short walking distance from Villa Platamonas and is considered one of the most known tourist locations of the region. There are many traditional bakeries, cafes, stores, traditional taverns and restaurants. It is suitable for quiet family vacations but is also the ideal place for those that seek intense nightlife. The numerous little taverns on the picturesque bays and the beach bars and night-clubs on the road along the coast will satisfy even the most demanding visitor. It also has a harbor where you can anchor your craft.

The owners would be happy to give advice on the local area; point out the best places to eat and generally make sure that your holiday is as enjoyable as possible.

Wow! What a wonderful spot in Greece!

  • 5 of 5

The photos listed give only a hint of the actual beauty that surrounds you in this romantic relaxing villa. Some days it was hard to leave and go exploring because the villa has such a gorgeous environment with spectacular views. It was absolutely sparkling clean and fantastically equipped to a very high standard that really does make you feel spoilt; it really felt like home from home.

The location of the villa is superb; it is at close walking distance to all good things Platamonas town has to offer, but also far enough from the noise. There are many lovely beaches, more than we could get to see in a week, some almost empty, and even on the busy ones, you could get a decent patch of sand to yourself.

I listened to the sound of the waves and watched the sunset every night and it was probably the most breathtaking sunset I have ever seen! Absolutely unreal.

The communication and customer service with Tasos, the owner was excellent. We would totally recommend this home - the memories will last a lifetime!

I can't wait to visit again next summer!.

Exquisite property and location

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival my friends and I were blown away by the beauty of the property and its location. The owner, Tasos, greeted us with a smile and some delicious Greek fruit and enthusiastically showed us around the villa.

The villa was immaculate and well equipped and the bedrooms were comfortable and roomy. It is also ideally located. It is a 5-minute walk to the nearest shops and taverns and the nightlife is out of this world too!

I would recommend this property to anyone of all ages, there were plenty of local activities, board games, cuddly toys for younger ones, balconies for a more relaxed daytime snooze and much more.

I wish I could give this villa more than 5 stars, it was 10/10 just like the owner.

Thank you again for an amazing week Tasos!

A wonderful villa in a lovely place in Greece

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in villa platamonas for two weeks in august 2016. We were a diverse group of different ages and tastes and it can sometimes be difficult to find accommodation to please everyone. I can say without hesitation that villa platamonas was the perfect house for all of us. It is a beautiful house in a beautiful location with breathtaking views of the sea and mount olympos. There is a wonderful beach just below the house with a fish taverna next to it. There are activities in the area to suit all ages and tastes and a lot of places to see and explore. Mostly I would like to thank the owners of the house for their hospitality. I would highly recommend villa platamonas for a family holiday.

Beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, spotless and well equipped and Tasos made us feel very welcome when we arrived. The location was perfect - just a short walk to the beach and taverna. We really enjoyed our stay, with day trips to Elassona and Mount Olympus.

What a gorgeous place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 4 teenage children and I have just returned from quite honestly one of the most wonderful holidays I have ever had the good fortune to go on! Proximity to the beach, Taverns, grocery store and bakery made everything easy. Villa Platamonas is extremely comfortable and the outdoor space is excellent too.It is so well placed for trips to different places and to the beautiful Mount Olympus. We could not have been happier. We hope to go back one day.

Superb Location

  • 5 of 5

We just had to place a review on this Villa; it was out of this world and lived up to the description without a doubt. We found it hard to drag ourselves away from the villa but once we did we had such fun, there is a lot to do and see, too much to try to do in the time we had. We hope to go back to see what we didn't manage this time!! We would recommend Villa Platamonas to anyone wanting an exclusive, luxury holiday but with the chance to explore when the mood takes you.

From the Owner

SIGHTSEEING Olympus, the legendary mountain where the ancient Greek mythology was born. The residence of the 12 Gods, the countless demigods and heroes, the Nymphs and the Muses. It is the highest and most sacred mountain of Greece. On the border between Thessaly and Macedonia, with its highest peak, Mitikas (2,917 m), Olympus is famous not only for its mystic character, but also for its rare flora and fauna, small rivers, waterfalls, caves and forests, its peaks and steep rocky slopes, its monasteries and churches, its shelters and taverns. According to the Greek mythology, here, the twelve Gods defeated the Titans and established their reign. They fed on ambrosia and nectar, which certifies the excellent quality of local products (plants and wine). The thunderbolts of the mountain were the weapons of Zeus. In ancient Dion, on the roots of Olympus, Olympian Zeus was worshiped. In the wider area, the legend of ancient, wonderful lyrist Orpheus floats in the air. For the sake of his beloved woman, Orpheus bewitched even Hades, but found an awful death by the Maenads. The slopes and peaks of Olympus are a centre of attraction for climbers from all over the world, while they hide dangers, surprises and intense emotions, and its tranquil forested side has zealous fans of all ages. The Pierian Mountains also have many and rare beauties, traditional hamlets and the famous ski centre of Elatochori, with modern facilities and ski runs. The imposing medieval Castle of Platamon that has been standing proud for 10 centuries, at the gate of Thermaic gulf. The former guardian of pirates now stands proud and watches the ships of the Aegean Sea.

Villa Platamonas is situated at the foot of Mount Olympus, the mountain of the twelve gods, at the very point where legendary mountain reflects its green mass in the deep blue Thermaikos gulf.

Platamonas is a seaside location in the region of Central Macedonia. It is regarded as one of the most important tourist destinations in Pieria with green landscapes, beautiful beaches and crystalline waters. No wonder it has turned into a remarkable destination.

According to Greek tradition, its name originates either from the platan trees or from the broad sandy beaches, both of which can be found in the areas surrounding the resort.

Most people know the Pieria region and Mount Olympus from the Greek mythology. Others know about this place from the tourists that have visited it. Even so, most of the tourists that have visited the place agree: Pieria is even more beautiful and thrilling in reality.

Very few places in the world associate endless beaches with their golden sand and clean sea, the mountains full of history and natural beauty. All these are connected in an excellent local infrastructure of roads, highways and rail roads.

Few other places in the world are blessed with 70 miles of shore, home to such different kinds of holidays, from quiet family holidays to weekend breaks for those young and restless tourists. Few places indeed offer such diversity in terms of entertainment, recreation and cultural life, due to their geographical diversity, secular history and especially the hospitality, friendship, diligence and consistency of people in the region.


From Thessaloniki Macedonia Airport take The National Road (E75) via Thessaloniki and then follow the highway (Thessaloniki –Athens) in a southbound direction to Katerini. Continue past Katerini and after Leptokaria take the exit for Platamonas.
