    Very hard to access. You leave the car in the narrow street, then you drag luggages over a slope till the property. You need to have good physical condition to climb the path to the hotel.

    Nice house,. Wonderful terrace with beautiful view. Modern room with all facilities.

    Lovely location overlooking Volos and the mountains.
    • Leisure trip

    • Double Room
    • Stayed 5 nights

    Breakfast was not available (I guess not many people were asking for it and so they stopped offering it). Staff was helpful but not there between 9pm-9am, they left a number in case of emergency. As the place is close to Volos the commute to the seaside on Pagasitikos was quite a struggle. Also, the only way to find shops or restaurants was by driving, even though there was a path nearby leading you to Makrynitsa (15 min drive), so one has to prepare in advance for whatever they think they might need.

    Lovely location overlooking Volos and the mountains. Beautiful stone-build veranda with amazing view, great for having breakfast of having a quiet night. Great mattress in bed very clean.

    It is challenging to go to the destination. You have to be light with your luggage.

    Really nice place. Amazing view of the City. You can feel the fresh air and the beautiful sound of the river.

    Mountain Retreat with your own nature wonderland.
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with older children
    • Double Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    My only reservation was because we arrived late, we were given mountain views when I would have preferred sea views as requested.

    Our family stayed higher up the mountain but we loved our guesthouses situation located on the balcony of Pelion, halfway up the mountain so views of the coast were distant but spectacular, but the bonus was the verdant forest on the surrounding slopes. We walked down the the creek bed and delighted in all the little waterfalls, swimming holes pooled and nourished by the icy mountain water. Clear and cooling on a hot day in the midst of a forest with the remnants of a cobbled bridge and walkways from long ago.

    The road into Makrinitsa is an interesting experience and can be hair raising uncertain places. However we weren't disappointed when we got to the hotel! The place itself is kept pristine by the owners and the rooms are kept amazingly clean. The staff were awesome all the way through and the breakfast was fantastic. The view to Volos and the surroundings can't be any better. Strongly recommended for anyone, who looks for a quiet and relaxing place with amazingly kind hosts.
