Overview

Villa/House Modern Ideal for Kids Hot Tub Romantic

Nestled on Mount Pelion, at the southeastern part of Thessaly in central Greece is Villa Lolcus, a delicately designed 19th-century dwelling that can accommodate 2-4 guests over two storeys. Clad in rustic stone and featuring a spacious private yard, hot tub, and spectacular views of the peninsula, Villa Iolcus is a beautifully appointed and stylish holiday home with modern facilities and a home-from-home atmosphere.

On the ground floor, guests will be greeted by the spacious double bedroom, which features a handsomely crafted king-size bed and sturdy chunky wooden furniture, affording plenty of storage space. The decor is kept fresh and light, with white walls and light wooden floors. There are pale silver voiles at the windows, and bed linen is crisp and white with throws and cushions in a light floral pattern, giving the whole room an authentic country cottage vibe. Delicate wall decals add a touch of colour in pretty shades of azure, pearl, and shell, and lamps in gold and cream add a touch of contemporary style.

The private bathroom, consisting of a deep bath and shower attachment facilities, is also on this floor and mimics the modern minimalist style of the bedroom with clean lines and a fresh colour palette. The suite and tiled walls are white, which contrasts with the intricately designed tiled floors in shades of grey, white and royal blue.

From the ground floor, guests have direct access to the luxurious private hot tub and decking area complete with sun loungers, ideal for a lazy morning dip while taking in the picturesque views of the mountainside. Surrounded by stunning olive groves and lush vegetation, providing some welcome shady spots, guests can enjoy relaxing in relative privacy.

On the first floor, guests will find the cosy and comfortable living area featuring a stylish modern fireplace, glass-topped coffee table, and flat-screen smart TV complete with Netflix. These modern touches are all beautifully juxtaposed with original features such as exposed ceiling beams and sprays of brickwork, giving a quaint rustic touch. The decor is modern with white walls and wooden floors, and soft furnishings in shades of soft grey, teal, and chocolate. The open plan room allows guests to move seamlessly from the plush three-seater sofa, which can be converted into a sofa bed to accommodate two more guests, into the dining and kitchen area which consists of a chunky wooden dining table which seats four, and a well-equipped kitchen. Amenities include gorgeous wooden-topped teal units, electric oven and hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, Espresso coffee maker, and sandwich toaster.

The first floor also houses a small yet stylish restroom consisting of a toilet and basin. The walls are decorated in a soft powder blue with taps and mirror in a burnished gold effect. From this floor, guests have access out into the spacious yard, which features an outside dining table and parasol for alfresco dining. Stone steps lead from here down to the decking area and hot tub.

What you should know…

  • Villa Iolcus has one bedroom, accommodating 2 guests. A further 2 guests can be accommodated in the living area as the three-seater sofa can be converted into a double bed
  • The yard and steps are cobbled stone and therefore may be uneven in places, so take care. There’s no handrail on the steps leading from the courtyard down to the decking/hot tub area
  • The Villa and its grounds are surrounded by tall trees and lush vegetation, which provides shaded areas and some seclusion, although there are other properties on the mountain within fairly close proximity

The soft slopes and easily accessible peaks make Mount Pelion a popular destination for lovers of hiking and mountain climbing. Beautiful during both the winter and summer months, Mount Pelion and the traditional villages nestled among it offers plenty for tourists to see and do. Situated at the foot of the mountain, Portaria is one of the most cosmopolitan villages of Pelion and is a popular holiday destination thanks to its vicinity to the sea and a skiing resort. This bustling village offers luxurious hotels and traditional hostels, restaurants and tavernas, coffee shops, bars, and shops selling souvenirs and traditional folk art items. Due to the location a car is essential.

For a truly cultural experience head to the village of Zagora, situated on the eastern slopes with a stunning view of the Aegean. Densely populated, Zagora consists of four districts all meeting around the square of Ag. Georgios, named after the adjacent church which is famous for its beautiful altarpiece. The square hosts the famous Public Library which houses many rare books and also has a reading room within its premises. While in Zagora pay a visit to Drakopoulou Mansion, home to the food preparation facilities of the Women’s Agrotourism Cooperative of Zagora. Here nature meets tradition with thriving orchards offering abundant citrus trees, which provide the ingredients of spoon sweets, marmalades and liqueurs, the recipes for which have been handed down for generations. Why not treat yourself and those back home with some traditional handmade delicacies while you are here?

Villa Lolcus is a small villa, most suited to a couple or small family group. There is only one double bedroom, although a cot is available on request should you have a very little one travelling with you. If you’re travelling with older children, the sofa on the first floor converts into a sofa bed, providing separate sleeping quarters. The outside areas are not 100% child-friendly due to the stone cobbles and steps, but with adequate supervision, they will be able to enjoy being outside with the rest of the family, where there is plenty of shade provided by the parasols and overhanging trees. Villa Iolcus has a selection of board games to entertain guests of all ages, and there is also a high chair and children’s cutlery available.

The Thessaly region is the perfect place for a family to experience Greece together, particularly if you have a passion for outdoor activities. There are plains and mountains to explore, offering breathtaking views, which can be enjoyed on foot, or by bike or horseback. While visiting the region don’t miss out on seeing Meteora, a rock formation that is home to one of the largest Eastern Orthodox Monasteries. There are tours available including a train tour, walking tour, and sunset tour, so there’ll be something for all the family to enjoy. No family holiday is complete without a trip to the beach and Thessaly is home to a number of them! Papa Nero Beach is incredibly popular with tourists thanks to its beautiful white sand and turquoise waters, as well as facilities such as beach bars, sunbeds and parasols, changing cabins, and canoes to rent. For a less crowded beach experience head to nearby Fakistra Beach, where scenes from the movie ‘Mamma Mia!’ were filmed. Here you’ll find rocky capes, turquoise waters, and the remains of an old tower to explore.

History loving families will find the area abundant with museums, including the Natural History Museum, the Archaeological Museum and the Entomological Museum - which is a particular favourite with children. Housing a collection of over 35,000 different insects, many of which are considered rare or unusual, the museum is an ever-expanding work of preservation. The museum is populated most densely by butterflies, with more than 10,000 species, including the Thysania Agrippina, found only in South America and regarded as the world’s largest known butterfly thanks to its 40cm wingspan! Appointments to view the collection have to be booked in advance, but it’s well worth the effort to see this incredibly unique collection.

  • Escellent place!

    on 07/08/2023

    Excellent place, very spacious, clean and super friendly owners. Hardly to find anything negative.

  • Villa was perfect!

    on 05/08/2023

    Stylishly furnished. Nothing was missing, even a gas grill was available. The swimming jacuzzi was a relief in the high temperatures.

  • Everything you need is there and even more!

    on 25/07/2023

    We were kindly welcomed upon arrival and the farewell was also friendly. the house is located in a beautiful area and has a beautiful view

  • Just a pleasure!

    on 07/07/2023

    A charming villa in an excellent location, designed and equipped down to the smallest details with thought to every detail. Lovely view, sweet pool, comfortable mattress and pillows

  • Perfection!

    on 27/06/2023

    This is a beautifully restored little house with two large terraces and a superb jacuzzi. The layout worked well with the living area, kitchen and shady terrace upstairs and the large bedroom, bathroom and garden/pool below. Our hosts were charming and responsive, supplying welcome gifts of delicious pie, olives and limoncello followed a few days later by chocolate croissants. The big villa next door was empty during our stay so we were given access to its fabulous swimming pool

  • We'd love to come back!

    on 09/06/2023

    The view overlooking the sea and the olive trees was very beautiful. We really liked the location of the house in town and the opportunities to go for walks, for example to the sea or to the Pelion railway. The landlords were friendly and accommodating. The house has everything you need for a relaxing holiday

  • Relatively cool!

    on 14/10/2022

    Clean, great facilities (fireplace, grill, washing machine), bedroom in the basement (directly facing the garden) - therefore relatively cool, easy coordination for key handover, bakery and mini market within walking distance, short hike/walk starts at the accommodation.

  • A sure hit!

    on 23/08/2022

    Beautiful views, a house with all the details and a very attentive, friendly and efficient host. All perfect.

  • Highly recommend!

    on 27/07/2022

    The holiday home was stunning. Equipped with everything you need.. Tidy, very clean, tastefully furnished and giving a homey feeling. We really enjoyed the peace and the view and there is a fun swimming pool/jacuzzi

  • It has whatever a family needs!

    on 24/07/2022

    This property has great views, as you can admire both the mountains and the sea, it’s pet friendly, the front yard is an amazing spot to enjoy during the morning with your kids/dogs playing while having breakfast! It’s definitely a property we’ll check first to book when we meet Pelion again!

  • Super beautiful!

    on 17/07/2022

    Looking at the photos I thought to myself: super beautiful. And the accommodation was even nicer on site! very tasteful and high quality. A dream, even the small swimming pool with a view. View of the sea from the dining area. Super clean. Good parking space in front of the house. We felt very comfortable.

  • I recommend!

    on 09/07/2022

    Beautiful house, renovated and decorated with attention to every detail, very comfortable and clean. Equipped with everything you might need. Host is very nice, very helpful and caring. The Pelion Peninsula is a charming place, not very commercial, but in our opinion this is an advantage, with beautiful beaches, charming towns, mostly covered with olive trees. There is delicious food in the nearby taverns

  • Exceptional

    on 03/09/2019

    The villa is amazing! Absolutely gorgeous and very clean! The owners have a fantastic sense of design and comfort & surprised us with gifts of food. The pool was excellent and very clean. The setting was magic!

  • Perfect

    on 31/07/2019

    Amazing place and great host, the place is well equipped to the last detail. The jacuzzi outside is perfect and the location is great, just minutes from the beach but still quiet and calm. Will definitely come back!!
