How to reach us

Volos is located nearly in the central of Greece, between Athens and Thessaloniki.

So this is the way someone can reach us, from the airports of Athens and Thesalloniki.

Moreover, there is Volos Airport , which operates mostly with flight charters from big cities like London, Dusseldorf, Stuttgard, Paris or Munich .

In addition s/one could land in Skiathos airport. Then he/she could reach a. Pelion by Water Taxi From Skiathos to Katigiorgi in 20 minutes b. Volos by conventional or highspeed Ferry (1h 25m – 2h 45m) .


Volos Center

Volos is a modern city of 100.000 inhabitants with a great road planning which helps visitors to easily find their way and not get lost.

It is really vivid since it has University and its hot spot is its pedestrianized beach. From one side there are restaurants, cafes, parks, playgrounds, green spaces, skate rings and from the other side there is the sea. Everyday you can see people jogging or just walking enoying the sun and the calmness of the scenery, children playing or running with their bicycles.



Along the beach there are the famous tsipouradika. Local restaurants where you don't order food but tsipuro !!!. Tsipuro is similar to raki and uzo.

So for example for 2 persons you order 2 tsipoura ( 4cl for each person) and the cook offers you 3-4 different dishes with delicious food to accompany them.
Then you order 2 more tsipoura and 4 more different dishes, "mezedes" arrive. And this goes on....

A visitor can really get anything he needs from Volos. There are big markets like Liddle, shops like Intersport and H&M, banks, pharmacies, hospital, gas stations.


mountain Pelion

Volos is built at the bottom of mountain Pelion. Pelion..... a Heaven in Earth....

• 1400m high
divine nature which changes colours according to the season
24 villages / each one is a unique destination. Some are on the mountain, some by the sea
• Old mansions with traditional Pelion architechture, springs with crystal clear water, picturesque squares
• Museums, galleries, libraries, monasteries, music festivals
Tastefull vegetables and fruits, traditional recipies like spetzofai, moussaka, spoon sweets



Sea by both sides

If you take a look at the map on the right side of Pelion there is Aegean Sea and on the left the Pagasitic Golf.


Why is this important? Because it affects "swimming".


When the Aegean Sea is calm, it reminds me of " Blue Lagoon" the famous movie with Brook Shields and Kristofer Atkings which took place in a tropical island in South Pasific. Open sea with cold green turquaosse crystal clear water resemling a lake.......

But because of the winds at this side of Pelion many days there are waves, small or bigger analogically the speed of the winds ideal for adventourous types.

In the Pagasitic Gulf the sea is always calm so there no way of loosing any day for swimming. It is clean, warmer and it deepens gradually so it is ideal for families with small children.

In both sides there are smaller or bigger beaches, organized with cafes and restaurants or not organised ones so one can choose the beaches that he/she prefers.

" What I usually advise my guests is to check the weather and visit Aegean when there is no wind. By this way they are sure they will enjoy swimming in these magnificent beaches".
