WE CELEBRATE UNITY

To us, ‘Enjoy a Special Life Experience’ is about embracing diversity. It’s about accepting different people and cultures as they are. It’s about experiencing the overwhelming feeling of being united, and realising how simple it is to spread that positive feeling to others. A smile, a touch or a helping hand is all it takes.

WE CELEBRATE NATURE

Caring for the environment makes perfect sense to us! Our best memories are of the moments when we viewed the shoreline of the Aegean Sea and captivated us looking at the waves collide and glisten with the sunlight making you feel on the edge of the world. Standing in the shadows of the sun, when the sunset was mind-blowing, when the woods gave that fairy tale feeling. Remember that euphoric night when Damouchari became a colour wonderland illuminated by the moon and the lights of the beach? Imagine wasting all those moments—or never experiencing them again! We don’t want to waste; we want to contribute.

 

So easy to enjoy yet so hard to leave!

WATER

Water is abundant in Pelion peninsula in The Greek municipality of  Magnesia. Instead of the stereotype Greek landscape of bare rock, parched earth and dusty villages, the area is green and lush, with fresh water gurgling from fountains and streams at every turn.

We believe that water belongs to everyone. 
It’s the source of life.
 Luckily we have wonderful water in Pelion. Not from the other end of the world,
 but straight from the source. Here and now, fresh and freely available for all. 
Naturally plain and simple.
 What’s good for the world,
is good for you.

MYSTERY LAND

The Pelion peninsula, according to Greek legend, was the site chosen by the gods for their revelries and holidays. Endorsements can’t get better than that, and for today’s Greeks the lush mountain scenery and clean beaches are still a popular destination. But, as yet, the area remains little known to travellers from outside Greece. They are missing out on a treat.

The people who settled there were prosecuted by the Ottomans and thus fled to this area so as not to be found. Indeed, this narrow peninsula is nothing like we are used in Greece and looks more like an Scandinavian landscape with ancient forests and tress of thousands of years old. But with mild Mediterranean climate.

A beautiful, mountainous peninsula with many secluded coves and beaches. Rich in contrasts with rugged eastern shores and quiet western beaches where children can play upon view of their parents and mirror blue seas. An idyllic temperature and climate, which adds to the delight of the rocky and soft sand beaches and calm seas. A mountain full of drama within which you just know the gods abide, feasting on the honey from the local hives with so much history.

But it is those contracting elements that may have once drawn the Greek gods from Mount Olympus – striking mountains capes, dense forests and beautiful beaches – which remain the main allure of Pelion today.
