hotels in milina

The village of Milina is among the best options in Pelion for your summer vacations. It’s a seaside village in South Pelion overlooking Pagasetic Gulf; it is very vibrant especially during summer. Despite advanced tourist development (restaurants, cafes, shops, campings, rentals etc.) it has not been spoiled and maintains its scenic and traditional character.

The origin of the name is Slavic, from the word “mln” which means windmill. The village has a long history with medieval findings but mostly great naval history as great fishermen, shipbuilders and ship owners were born here. In fact up till 1948, Milina belonged to the neighboring village of Lafkos located at a distance of 7km.

kissos pelion

Kissos is a small mountain village in Pelion that has dense vegetation consisting of beech, chestnut and walnut trees that literally hide it in some areas. It’s one of the quietest villages of east Pelion with uninterrupted views towards the Aegean Sea where you can enjoy relaxing holidays combining mountain and sea.
Its name is probably due to the ivy (Kissos), wrapped in tall trees always trying to reach higher and higher. There is of course a version from the historian G.Kordatos according to which the name derives from the misuse of the word Khrisos (Greek: gold). If you’re wondering about the relationship between Kissos and gold, the answer lies in the past when an ore mine was discovered and when villagers wanted to talk about gold they referred to it as “K’so”. From there according to this version derived the name "Kissos."

pelion must visit beaches

The eastern side of Pelion is washed by the Aegean Sea; this fact explains the existence of its beautiful beaches. The picturesque villages, which are literally located in the woods of Pelion, along with the Aegean culture in the coastline of the area, create alternative forms of entertainment and getaways.  

To reach the eastern side of Pelion, visitors are expected to cross a distance about 55km from city of Volos or 110km from the city of Larissa. Although there are regular public transport services, a car or a motorbike would be ideal for those who wish to explore the area and move without limits from place to place. Roads in Pelion are narrow and full of steep turns, up hills and down hills, like in most mountainous areas. The construction quality of the road is good and sufficiently covered with asphalt. All you need to do is make sure to fill up your car’s fuel tank in a petrol station in Volos, as petrol and fuel cost about 10 to 20 cents more in petrol stations around Pelion.

Due to the fact that the route to Pelion is rather peculiar, we recommend visitors to stay at least 2 or 3 days in the area, so as to have ample time to enjoy the experience of exploring Pelion and its surroundings.

The area offers various accommodation facilities and many options to the visitors, such as camping (only available at Papa Nero), hotels, villas and rooms to let. Prices vary depending on low or high season; there are available rooms and apartments ranging for 30 to 250 euro per night. You may choose to stay either by the beach or at a mountainous settlement; whichever you choose make sure you consider carefully all the advantages and disadvantages of each type of accommodation. If you choose to camp by the seaside, bear in mind that you are privileged having ensured easy access to the beach, but this could be a disadvantage if you intend to visit the rest of the area; it is more time consuming to tour the rest of the region. Staying in a mountainous settlement provides faster access to most beaches, about 20 or 40 minutes ride, depending on the beach you plan to visit. Pelion and its surroundings, as well as all its beaches, provide the visitors with all the necessary facilities they need, such as grocery stores, coffee shops, pharmacies, restaurants and petrol stations.
