Overview

Modern Ideal for Kids Hot Tub

Situated on the slopes of Mount Pelion in the stunning village of Agios Georgios Nileias is Villa Philyra. This 19th-century accommodation offers guests cosy and stylish surroundings, incredible panoramic views, and traditional rustic Greek charm punctuated with modern touches. Set over two storeys and featuring private yard and hot tub, Villa Philyra can accommodate up to 7 guests and is resplendent with original features such as exposed beams and brickwork, all uniquely reflecting Pelion’s architectural style.

The ground floor of this quaint rustic space features an open plan layout, consisting of living, dining and kitchen areas. The whole floor boasts stone flooring and wooden panelled ceilings, as well as columns and shelves in rich wood and slate, providing a wonderfully authentic rural feel. The living area features a fireplace, ideal for those visiting during the colder months, as well as a flat-screen TV and DVD player for your entertainment. The decor in here is kept fresh and natural, allowing the white stone walls and natural flooring to speak for themselves. Rugs and soft furnishings in shades of toffee, cream and chocolate blend beautifully with the dark woods and contemporary styled lamps and coffee tables, and the beautiful wooden spiral staircase makes a stunning central feature.

The dining and kitchen area follow suit with a colour palette of neutral shades and feature plenty of beautiful solid woods and natural materials. The well-equipped kitchen has an electric oven and hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher, Nespresso coffee maker, and sandwich toaster, as well as offering plenty of storage and food preparation areas. The ground floor of Villa Philyra also houses the main bathroom consisting of bath with shower attachment, basin, toilet and bidet. Spacious and light, the bathroom suite is fresh and white and complemented by shiny tiles in a light mocha. Guests will also find the washing machine in this room, as well as tiled shelves holding baskets of towels and complimentary toiletries for your convenience.

There is direct access from the ground floor to the lowest level of the private yard and the hot tub, here you’ll find a cobbled area featuring dining table and chairs, as well as bbq and grill, all shaded by a large tree. There’s also a decking area around the hot tub, complete with sun loungers, providing the perfect place to sit and relax while enjoying the most breathtaking views of the Pagasitikos Gulf.

Heading back inside and up that gorgeous spiral staircase to the first floor, guests will discover four beautiful bedrooms, as well as a small bathroom featuring a walk-in shower. The two double rooms are lightly decorated in shades of white and cream with wooden floors and furniture. Linens are crisp and white with accents of gingham toffee and mocha, providing a serene and relaxing environment. The single room consists of a sturdy white wooden bed, large enough for an adult to sleep comfortably, and is decorated in the same light shades with wooden flooring and white rugs. The fourth room consists of sturdy bunk beds in a festive shade of red, colourful rugs and cushions, making it the ideal space for young children. From this floor, there is access to the top level of the yard, where guests will find a table and seating area, perfect for a morning coffee or a light breakfast accompanied by those stunning views.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • The yard is on several levels, so there are quite a few steps, although there are handrails, care needs to be taken
  • The ground floor is open plan, but guests should be aware there is one small stone step leading from the living area to the dining area, and another leading into the kitchen area
  • Villa Philyra is relatively secluded, and although there are other villas in the vicinity it is not overlooked, affording guests almost complete privacy

Situated 700 meters above sea level, Agios Georgios Nileias is known for being one of the most beautiful villages of the Pelion region, from its quaint stone buildings with their red-tiled roofs to the chestnut trees and olive groves, pear and apple trees, and fragrant gardens. Not far from Athens, and just a short distance from Volos in Magnesia, the village is in the perfect spot for exploring the wider region, including the neighbouring village of Pinakates; relatively untouched by man and a category 1 protected landmark, this secret place was until recently only accessible by one road. The village is quiet and tranquil with a small square in the centre, sheltered under a big plane tree and featuring a small bakery selling fresh bread and pastries, a mini-market, and a seasonal taverna. Visitors to the village will marvel at the beautiful architecture of the boutique bed and breakfast guest houses, and the church of Agios Dimitrios. Due to the location a car is essential.

The region of Thessaly is known as the land of the mythical Centaurs as well as being the birthplace of Achilles; hero of the Trojan war, Asclepius; the father of medicine, and the area where the battle between the Titans and Olympian gods took place. Home to the large cities of Larisa, Volos, Trikala and Karditsa, the whole region will capture your heart and soul thanks to its glorious history and mythology, as well as events including music and dance festivals, incredible museums celebrating everything from folk art to brickworks, and stunning restaurants and eateries.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Philyra is a family-friendly villa featuring a bedroom completely geared towards young holidaymakers, complete with bunk beds, toys, games, and a colourful decor. Travel cots and high chairs are available for the youngest visitors, as well as children’s cutlery. Parents need to be aware that even though the ground floor features an open-plan layout, there are one or two small steps leading from the living area to the dining area and the kitchen, and the floors are all-natural stone. It’s also worth noting that there is a spiral staircase to the first floor, and the steps themselves are ‘floating’ in style, so little ones could easily slip through the gaps. Having said that, older children and well-supervised youngsters will enjoy the open-plan layout and the beautiful gated yard area. The yard is split over three levels, and although there are stairs, they all feature sturdy metal handrails, and there is plenty of naturally shaded areas provided by the overhanging trees, a huge plus for those trying to protect young skin from the sun.

The villa is perfectly located for families wishing to explore the wider areas of Greece, including not just Pelion with its picturesque villages and stunning architecture, but also the nearby city of Volos and the Magnesia region. The port town of Volos features some of the best-loved beaches in Greece, and the Magnesia coast has one of the mildest climates in the Mediterranean which create ideal conditions for enjoying the sea during all seasons of the year, making it the perfect destination for those with young families. Here visitors can rent small boats and seek out small hidden beaches and secret sea caves, and maybe even see some dolphins and observe spearfishermen. There are numerous swimming and diving clubs offering lessons and excursions suitable for all ages and abilities, as well as sports like water skiing and windsurfing to enjoy.

A well-equipped and well-equipped kitchen and lots of treats left by the owners. beautiful scenery. A little far from some attractions. There is a walk from the parking lot to the house.

The hosts were available when ever we needed and the communication was easy and fast. 4 bedrooms, well equipped kitchen , 2 bathrooms , lovely terrace with mid size hot tub , tanning beds and dinning table. Plenty of room for all the family. In Agios Georgios Nileias and surroundings villages you can find some very nice taverns

  • It was great!

    on 20/08/2022

    You just have to notice that the access to the house is through a stone path and the car is not parked right next to it. It didn't bother us, the opposite, that's the magic. A magical stone house in a charming village. The house is clean, well equipped and with a stunning view. The village is high above the sea from where we went on excursions and the sea in the western region. Pleasant and great host. We loved it all!

  • Amazing villa!

    on 22/07/2019

    Beautiful villa, very nicely designed.
    The location in the center of a beautiful village with amazing views. Fully equipped kitchen. High-class cleanliness, towels and linen are generous. The hosts help above and beyond every request !!
    Great place for family!
    The shower is a bit dense, but neat and clean.
