Luxurious Villa on the Beach
Beachfront with Jetty, Serenity & Privacy
Sheltered from the strong Meltemi Wind, in the calm Pagasetic Gulf lies the pretty fishing village of Mitzella. Completely off the beaten track and unknown to the vast majority of foreigners, Mitzella takes one back several decades to a time when Greece was a quieter, simpler place. Across the bay rise the mountain ranges of Pelion and the island of Skiathos; the wonders of Meteora are just over an hour away, as is Thermopylae, the Byzantine glories of Salonika are 2 ½ hours away, Delphi is a short trip by car. This is an opportunity to explore a beautiful and lesser known part of Greece.
Situated in a small, sleepy bay on the western side of the Pagasetic Gulf, also known as Nea Mitzela, it's location offers a refuge from the popular "tourist traps" of neighboring holiday retreats.
Mitzela has gentle sloping sandy beaches and several tantalizing tavernas which are never short of supply of fresh fish caught daily and there are several new quaint bars to enjoy drinks at sunset right on the water.
Nearby are several bays where one can go boating and discover untouched territory where the water shimmers rainbow-coloured and the warm sea invites for a swim.
The property, which consists of a main house and a guest cottage, is set in terraced grounds dropping down to the sea, where guests are offered two jetties; a wooden one for boats to dock at and a concrete one dressed with deckchairs and a lovely shaded area with cushioned seating.
A tiny sandy beach next to the jetty is great for small children, while other small, shingle beaches are accessed along a footpath.
The house also has a pool surrounded by lawn, an offsite tennis court, windsurfing equipment and speedboat upon request.
Designed to follow the contour of the hill on which it is built, the villa offers spacious rooms, terraces and balconies galore and above all, lovely views of the water and beach 30m below. Steps lead down through the garden to the pool, and then continue down to the shore.
Wrap around terraces offer different seating, eating and lazing areas for a large group of people.
The villa is always undergoing renovation, though keeping the original concept that preserves the Pelion style of hand-made roof-tiles, whitewashed walls, wooden balconies and ceilings, and stone floors.
The space, privacy and proximity to the sea make this an ideal house for relaxing with family or friends.
The Villa has a maximum guest policy of 12 people (each additional guest will be charged 200 Euro per day).
The villa is a pet friendly environment (with additional pet cleaning fee cost).
