Overview

About the property

Romantic 3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms villa, - 20 minutes drive to nearest beach.

The Old Stone House is ideally situated at the edge of Vysitza, one of the very famous historic Pelion mountain villages, 450m above sea level. The house is easily accessible with 3 parking spaces right outside the garden door, from where stairs lead down to the property. Due to its unique location on the side of the mountain, the house is surrounded by breathtaking mountain and sea views that can be enjoyed from two large verandas and all around the spacious garden. The property offers 3 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (2 of which are en-suite) and additional sleeping space in the large upstairs sitting room. The interior has been lovingly and carefully decorated with local antiques in line with the traditional style of the house, and offers excellent amenities for a relaxed and enjoyable holiday - this includes a library of English and German books, unlimited WiFi, TV/DVD with a library of DVD titles, and board games. The kitchen is well equipped with a new Miele ceramic hob and oven, a Miele washing machine, a fridge/freezer, a Thermos coffee machine, mixer, toaster, juicer and a vast selection of cooking utensils. The outdoors original stone oven is also fully functionable and offers a new cooking experience for every hobby cook. Hence, both cooking and eating al fresco adds to a relaxed holiday with friends and family. The benefit of a genuine old stone house is the thickness of its walls (nearly 1m at parts), which keeps the house cool in summer and warm in winter - artificial air conditioning is therefore not needed. The beautiful and peaceful village square of Vysitza with its tavernas is only a 10min.walk away from the house. The long-stretching, family-friendly beaches of the Pagasitic Gulf can be reached within 20min. by car, other famous beaches on the side of the Aegean Sea like Milopotamos or Damouchari are approx. 40min away. (all routes offer spectacular views).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Als Griechenland Fans hatten wir nach dem Besuch vieler Inseln, diesmal Pelion zum Ziel. Wir hatten uns gut informiert und viel ueber die wilde romantische Landschaft und seinen alten Herrenhaeusern gelesen. Das Glueck wollte es, dass wir gleich dieses Haus kennen-und lieben-lernten. Jeder Tag war ein Erlebnis, mitten in der Natur, ein Garten mit bunten Blumen und mit Fruechte behangene Obstbaeume. Der Ausblick von jeder der beiden Terrassen war ueberwaeltigend. Links in der Ferne das Meer, rechts ein aufsteigender Wald und geradeaus eine steile Felswand. Absolute Stille, die nur in der Nacht durch die Laute kleiner Wildtiere unterbrochen wurde. Pelion ist ein anderes Griechenland. Das "Old Stone House" hat dazu beigetragen das es einer unserer schoensten Urlaube wurde.

Vyzitsa Old Stone house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Old Traditional Pelion stone house in Vyzitsa. The villa is elegant, nicely appointed and very comfortable. The view from the living room and the terrace is unsurpassed. It was a wonderful long weekend for us and our friends and we highly recommend for others and hope to be back ourselves!

Owner's Response: We and our housekeeper take great pride in not only maintaining our high standards but also trying to find imaginative ways to continously improve our property. We aim to give our guests the feeling of staying at a home rather than just a rented villa, and we are glad if feedback confirms that we achieved it. We will continue our efforts to give our guests a warm welcome in The Old Stone House.

Beautiful Home in the Mountains of Pelion

  • 5 of 5

We had a magical stay just before Easter. Every aspect of the house was well thought out. The views were spectacular. The house was a cosy, beautiful family home. The experience was fun and memorable for all family members from young to old. Thank you for an amazing break.

House of beauty and deep spirit!

  • 5 of 5

Mt Pelion was a paradise for ancient gods. The Stone House proves the paradise still exists... Beautiful house preserving tradition and offering modern comfort, amazing nature, friendly neighbourhood with organic food and a very reach cultural heritage from antiquity to Byzantium... What more do you need?

Comfortable and spacious house

  • 4 of 5

We have been in Pelion for the 6th time. By far the 'old stone house' was the best place we have used as our home. The house is spacious, comfortable and had all we needed.

We would recommend the house to everyone! (with healthy legs)

The best place to stay in Pelion

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples with three teenagers and we were very comfortably suited in the house. We had cozy evenings by the fire in the living room and private night sleeping in the bed rooms.

The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The view from every window is spectacular.

We walked many trails in the area and on the other side of the mountain. The location of the house was perfect for any one-day trip because you can easily get to any point of interest in 20-40 minutes driving. The village has a grocery shop and in the next village, Milies, there is a very good bakery. There are also many restaurants in the area.

The owner is remarkably nice and cooperative.

Romantic retreat in mount Pelion

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days in the old stone house and had a fabulous time trekking around mount Pelion. The house is very conveniently located 5 min walk from the centre of Vizitsa and the view of the sea (Pagasitikos gulf) is breathtaking. We felt really at home, spending our evenings by the wood stove, enjoying a drink after a nice dinner in the tavernas of the village. We definately want to go back again especially when Pelio is full of snow!
