South Pelion Holidays

South Pelion holidays

Katigiorgis & Lafkos

 

Driving time from Airport 2-2½ hours

 

The wooded hills of the south-eastern corner of Pelion are less steep than the more mountainous north and the area more sparsely populated. The distance from Volos means it lessens the Greek holiday crowds who would otherwise flock to the beautiful sandy beaches and coves here (undoubtedly amongst the peninsula’s loveliest), although day-trippers may visit from Skiathos for a few hours by excursion boat.

 

The pick of the places to stay is the small seaside hamlet of Katigiorgis. We have heard it called Kati-gorgeous as it is so pretty! Comprising simply a compact but delightfully sandy beach facing Skiathos – the bay enclosed by rocky arms sheltering the village fishing boats – and a cluster of houses, its two tavernas are known for fresh fish.

 

There is also a café with WiFi and a mini-market – all you should need for a complete escape. Some fine beaches lie in either direction, ranging from tiny coves to longer stretches of sand, and can be found on foot (walkers only). A car is included in our holidays here and enables you to discover more wonderful beaches to the north and south.

Holidays In South Pelion

The pretty hill village of Lafkos, about midway between east and west coast, has a lovely traditional main square and you will find five village tavernas, as well as a traditional cheese maker, a sculpture gallery and (weirdly) a radio museum! It is a wonderful base for walking - many local stone paths start from here - and we would urge walkers to visit the excellent website by friends of the kalderimi. The nearest beaches are a 10 minute drive away to the west near Milina - however a very wide choice of some truly fabulous sandy beaches can be found within a 20-30 minute drive.

In either village car hire is recommended to further discover the area as the bus service here is limited.
