Apartment overview - owner's description

Apartment in attractive villa in an unspoilt seaside village with sandy beach and tavernas within walking distance.

The villa is located on the edge of a quiet seaside village about 7 mins walk from a sandy beach and the village centre. Simply furnished, the villa offers sea views, balconies to relax on and a large, shady, enclosed garden surrounded by olive groves.
Come and discover an area of Greece popular with Greeks but largely untouched by foreign tourism and experience real Greek hospitality.
The apartments are EOT approved and have been awarded 3keys to reflect the good standard of accommodation and facilities offered (MHTE 0726K123K03015-1).

The apartment
Located on the second floor of the villa, the accommodation consists of a simply furnished self contained apartment approx. 42 sq.m. sleeping up to 5 people, The apartment has a twin bedroom with air conditioning and a separate bathroom with full bath with shower attachment. It also has an open plan living/ dining area with double sofa bed and well equipped kitchen area (not airconditioned but with ceiling fan). One large and two small balconies help to make the most of the wonderful sun!
The Garden:
The garden is fully enclosed and has extensive lawned areas as well as flower borders. There is plenty of shade from the olive and other trees and a barbeque for your use. Chose whether you eat on the balconies or in the garden itself! There are childrens swings and a slide in the garden and sometimes you may be lucky enough to see the wild tortoises which come into the garden.

The Village and Surrounding Area + Getting there!
TheVillage:

You will find a warm welcome in Amaliapolis where the Greek concept of filoxenia (hospitality towards strangers) is still adhered to. Amaliapolis is popular with holidaying Greek families in late July and August but has very few foreign tourists.

The beach is within walking distance of the villa and is sandy and gently sloping - making it very suitable for young children. There is a choice of cafes and tavernas, with excellent fish, some of which stay open all year. The main square is a wonderful place to sit and watch the world go by and the fishing boats as they come and go.

The village also has two bakeries and two general stores, one of which also doubles as a butchers', and a pharmacy. It also has a childrens playground, 5-a-side football pitch and basketball court near the beach, with a beach volleyball court in summer. In the next village there is a larger supermarket (15 mins drive away).

You can experience the real Greece here, largely untouched by mass market tourism.

The Surrounding Area:

Beaches: as well as the village beach (walking distance), there are several other nice sandy beaches within a 30 minute drive of the villa. In summer there are daily boat trips to Skiathos from a nearby village.

Archaeology: the area of Magnesia is also rich in archaeological sites including Ancient Thebes, Prehistoric Dimini,Sesklo and Dimitras. Volos has an excellent archaeological museum.

Shopping: the nearest town is Almyros which has banks and other amenities all only 20 mins drive away. Volos, from whence Jason and the Argonauts are said to have set sail, is a bustling small city with a wide range of shops, restaurants and ferry links to nearby islands such as Skiathos, Alonissos and Skopelos.

Excursions: the Pelion Peninsula is also within driving distance with beautiful scenery, historic mountain villages and seaside resorts - a good day trip. In winter there is even a ski resort on the peninsula!
Further afield you can visit classical Delphi (approx.120km), the Byzantine monasteries of Meteora (approx.180km) or the Hellenistic/Roman site of ancient Dion (approx. 170km).

Getting there:
There are flights to Volos Airport (20km)April-October, by Air-Berlin, Ryanair and Monarch Airlines, or fly to Athens or Thessaloniki which offer a large choice of scheduled, budget (Easyjet and Aegean) or charter flights. Then drive, all motorway until the last 13km, or take a long distance bus to Almyros/Volos.
Use of a hire car is recommended to make the most of this beautiful area but we can also arrange for the local taxi or minibus service to meet flights/ take you on excursions.

When to visit: Spring and early summer(April, May, June) are excellent times to explore Greece - the weather is generally sunny but it is not too hot, but warm enough to swim in May and June. In Springtime the hills are covered in beautiful wild flowers and there is plentiful birdlife if you are into ornithology!Likewise September and October are great months - the sea is still very warm after the summer but the air temperature is more pleasant after the July/August heat. The winter months can also offer clear, sunny days to lift the spirits.

I stayed in Amaliapolis at Villa Christina and I have to say it was one of my favorite vacations thus far. Having never heard of the town, my friends and I decided to take on an adventure and couldnt have been more pleased with our stay. The village is gorgeous, quiet, and the people are wonderful. So much fun! The villa was fantastic! Well kept and we had a gorgeous view of the ocean and town from our balcony. It was spacious and Christina the owner was amazing and answered all of our questions prior to our stay. She arranged a cab for us as well. Everything about this village and villa is perfect: the food, people, beaches, prices...I definitely recommend everyone to stay here! Perfect for families, friends, and even college students like us. Review from guest April 2013

Eva Nilsson (one of 11 members of the Nilsson family) wrote in July 2006: We really want to congratulate you for having this fantastic house in a wonderful little village - beautiful, peaceful and convenient. The house is very well equipped. I don’t think we missed anything. The couple in the basement are very helpful and friendly. We have all enjoyed our first but hopefully not the last visit to Greece. Bathing and snorkling have been favourites activities, finding calamares, fish and various seashells. The beaches are all really good, the waves in the afternoon at Lefki were great fun. We now leave with a lot of good memories (and a suitcase full of olive-oil, olives, ouzo, dolmades, beautiful stones and seashells) and hopefully one day we will be back. Pete and Judi wrote in May 2006: Thanks for letting us share your beautiful house in Amaliapoli. We’ve had one of our most memorable holidays ever.

Just had to write to tell you what a wonderful, wonderful holiday we had in Amaliapolis. As I mentioned previously, we have been to Greece five times before - to islands never the mainland - so we know that the Greek people are special. I have to say though that nothing, nothing, could have prepared us for the kindness and generosity shown to us by the people in the village,we were totally bowled over by it.

Private Owner From Swindon, United Kingdom Member since Jun 2005

I feel deeply privileged to have this beautiful house in a wonderful part of Greece and I would like to share that good fortune by inviting others to experience a holiday there. I have gone to the trouble of obtaining an EOT (Greek Tourist Organisation) licence to rent these apartments to show that I am serious about the comfort and safety of my guests and they have awarded me 3 'keys' , a level of licence which is quite hard for a small business like this to achieve. I have also done this because I believe in supporting the Greek economy and pay taxes on my earnings unlike many villa owners! Please come and stay and you will be enchanted with this area of Thessaly as we were on our first visit.
