We were inspired many years ago to create an off the beaten track community. A community eager to embrace nature and explore the enchanting secrets of Pelion as a region. Where our knowledge, traditions and passion for living in nature, growing and cooking food and maintaining a healthy lifestyle could be shared amongst friends and family from around the world. Where people staying with us have a home away from home and feel welcomed by our warmth and exquisite hospitality.
The mythical region of Pelion is the perfect environment to do this. As a truly undiscovered paradise which shines through all four seasons, it offers so much to travellers and visitors living here or passing through on holiday. It is a source of positive energy for people seeking happiness, longevity and true balance in their lives.
A home away from home in Pelion
Our underlying ethos and philosophy are to establish a serene community, where people staying with us will have a home away from home. The opportunity to seamlessly fuse their urban living lifestyles within a peaceful natural environment. To provide an educational platform to share knowledge, local wisdom and expertise through teaching programmes and workshops within the peaceful framework that Pelion offers in abundance. To offer the chance for people to be able to adopt a healthier lifestyle, closer to their fellow travellers. The mythical region of Pelion is a perfect environment to do this.
As a truly undiscovered paradise which shines through all four seasons, it offers so much to travellers and visitors passing through or visiting on holiday.

The Team of Pelion Homes
Stathis is the owner of Pelion Homes and the leader of the team. He has three big passions, among other smaller ones! – Pelion, architecture and travelling. He also loves to spend time in the forest and to cook for his friends.
Having travelled for two years in South America and lived for more than 10 years in London, he has come back to Pelion to re-discover himself in this magnificent natural location and share this experience with people from around the world. He believes that true luxury dwells in special moments with loved ones surrounded by beautiful unspoiled nature.
Apart from being the mastermind behind the operations of the Pelion Homes, he takes care of every detail when it comes to decorating and preserving the understated elegance of the villas.

Nicholas visited Pelion whilst travelling around Greece and fell in love with what he now calls his home & paradise!
Before finishing his studies, he spent 8 months travelling the world around Europe, Dubai, Morocco, Bali, Thailand & Australia. He believes that everyone should have the opportunity to travel to open their mind to new experiences, culture and to help develop their inner self.
He’s been a core part of the businesses development since the very early days. In helping to bring awareness to the retreat centre, establishing positive relationships with facilitators & planning the annual retreats calendar, whilst bringing people together from all over the world.
Having lived in Pelion for many years, he has plenty of recommendations to share with visitors and friends looking to explore this beautiful region!
Virginia, or Pachamama as she’s become to be known. Always passionate about movement, after 8 years of capoeira and body exploration through different kinds of spiritual and physical practices, 11 years now she has been exploring the practice of yoga as a student and as a teacher!
The last years, as part of Pelion Homes team, she practices yoga in a more holistic and spacious way and she loves to share not only her practice and her love for movement in all forms, but also her love for arts and crafts, music, nature, food and traveling, looking for meditation and upliftment of the soul in all the things she loves to do!
Wolfgang is a co-founder of the Pelion Homes Retreats Project. He is passionate about nature as the source of wisdom and as a guide to the right way of living. His other main passion is his family, and he moved to Mt Pelion five years ago with his wife Marina and his two children.
After having spent 30 years in theoretical physics, environmental and climate science, Wolfgang has made it his mission to help change the way our society perceives knowledge itself. He is helping us to create a centre for deep learning in Mt Pelion, where “knowing” means really experiencing with our hearts and heads together. One area where he applies this principle are his writings about the climate and ecological crisis, and the way we have created it by being too “brain centred”.
Wolfgang does guided tours in Mt Pelion’s magical forest-mountain-sea scape using a unique blend of scientific and heart centred communication. According to him, how we feel nature’s calling is every bit as real as anything natural science has ever unveiled. Through being active in nature, confronting it, and meditating in its presence, we start seeing ourselves as part of it. This allows us to become more conscious of our own true nature, and free up energies we did not even know existed.
Ali is our true go to turning point at Pelion Homes. He has been a solid pillar in the development of the retreat space and has befriended everyone passing through. Coming from Iran but living in London for more than 25 years he is contributing a true multicultural vibe and knowledge to our community. He always has a smile on his face and has a very calming, humble and uplifting aura which draws the love of our friends, visitors and guests.
Ali is an experienced cook by love and has a big passion about baking. It’s not a rare sight to see retreat participants waiting to try some of his famous freshly baked bread first thing in the morning where he will always offer with a big smile on his face!
Dimitris, also an architect and a restless soul, is the initiator of this project in Pelion. He has lived in the region for more than 45 years and knows very well how it feels to spend time in this magical place. He started a small family business by designing and constructing individual holiday homes that are for sale. In collaboration with his son Stathis, they worked together for more than 5 years to slowly develop what is now Pelion Homes. Holiday accommodations that feel just down to earth your home away from home!
Some of those properties are for sale should they would have been discovered by their new future owners! More info about property sales in Pelion you can find here.
Maria is the hidden treasure of Pelion Homes! Married to Dimitris for many many years, they both share they love of Pelion!
