The hidden Paradise you didn't expect to discover in mainland!
“The Paradise!” This was our exclamation when we stepped out for the first time on the balcony of our studio in Felitsia apartments. The next days and the several small towns and beaches we visited in the area only confirmed this first impression.
Our hosts – Filitsa and her family – were so kind! With my husband we appreciated so much their warm welcome; we were not treated as clients, but like family friends and Filitsa was trying to assure wonderful stay to all her guests, always helpful, but also delicate. The refreshing lemonade with lemons from the garden the evening of our arrival, the linden tea, the delicious sweets for breakfast made one morning by Filitsa, the smile of her mother that welcomed us in Greek language … There were so many little kind gestures, not possible to describe, during our stay in this home that made us feeling wonderful! And what a pleasure was starting our day on the balcony of our studio where the views were just amazing! The nearest nice beach could be joint at 2-3 min by car (and one day we did this also by foot), same for the several nice family tavernas on the seafront for the evening meal, with very good food, fresh fish, nice service, local house wine and reasonable prices.
If you are not a fan of the impersonal, boring service of the big 4 and 5 stars hotels and are looking for charming, relaxing holidays, to experience the real Greek hospitality and enjoying in the same time wonderful sea views, clean water, picturesque green hills, neat villages with houses covered by flowers, you would for sure appreciate a lot the Pelion region and a stay in Felitsia apartments. Don’t expect a luxury, but the charm of the natural simplicity (that is typical for the whole region), with care to all small details. The photos in the new web site of Felitsia apartments could give you fair picture of the studios - quite comfortable and spacious enough, without exuberance, but extremely clean (the cleaning is done every day, bed linen and towels changed every 2-3 days …)
The region and the coastline are one of the most beautiful we have ever seen (and we have been in many islands and resorts in Greece, France, Italy …), not spoiled yet by huge hotels or “hordes” of tourist. Ones of the beaches we prefered – Papa Nero, Plaka, Melopotamo, but there were also so many others. We were surprised that the 2nd week of June there was so little number of tourists (except for the long weekend), but this allowed us to enjoy even more the relaxing ambiance of the region. The amazing views of the mountains, the sea, the smell of the wild flowers in the region worth absolutely exploring Pelion driving at 25 km/g on the narrow roads between the villages.
So … we decided to turn back in Pelion and Felitsia apartments again in September this year and, for sure, this will be not our last visit of this wonderful region!
Filitsa, Aleko, Filitsia’s mama – thank you for making our holidays so special!
P.S. Another good surprise - we met lot's of people speaking English in the region, in shops and tavernas, including our hosts.
Fantastic view and very nice place to spend your vacations !
After me, my family and our frieds have been your guests this summer I'm waking up each morning seeing the sun in front of my home window, even if is raining.
And this is possible because you don't offer accomodation. From all of your hearts, you offered us confort, memories and we left friends.
God bless you all!

Thank you for your hospitality during our stay in one of your apartments.
The apartment was very well equipped and the view from the balcony was superb.

Dear Filitsa and Alex,
We are safely at home again! Thank you very much again for your kindness and hospitality! We had wonderful time in Pelion and your apartment was the best accomodation we ever had in Greece.
The interesting conversations with you about politics, the way of life and history proved to me that despite all the differencies we think the same way about the most important things in life.
Especially the talks with Alex about Greek history and also the exceptional museums in Athens made me start reading again the Ilias from Homer.
The Akropolis and the two great museums (the new Akropolis museum and the Archeological museum) compensated us for all the inconveniences. In the last one (Archeological museum) we spent about 6 hours but could not really see all the wonders. Especially grabbed my mind the Antikithira mechanism which seems to be a complete mystery.
The whole trip was great, and we never forget your kindness.
We wish good health to you and your family, and let me know if you are really about to come to Hungary,
