Just close your eyes and picture this: An azure sky above a glistening, calm sea. The horizon stretching infinitely in front of you; intercepted only by dots of luscious, green islands with pine and olive trees reaching down to sea level. Serenity and calmness; merely the sound of dolphins and sea turtles keeping you the best of company as you traverse through the Pagasetic gulf and the Sporades complex, on board your private sailing boat.
This is what sailing in Pelion is about: A once in a lifetime adventure; in which you’ll get to bask in the glory of nature-both mountain and sea; swim in crystal clear, aquamarine waters; visit picturesque villages-or stay off shore in sheltered bays; enjoy cocktails as you watch the sunset from your vantage point in the middle of the sea; bond with family and lifelong friends-or make new ones; and that’s not to mention, experience a superb adrenaline rush!
So how would you like to partake in an unforgettable holiday including some-or more-sailing in Pelion? At Pelion Homes in Agios Giorgios Nilias, rather than simply providing you with opulent accommodation in our collection of autonomous, luxury residences; we aim to open up your perspective, by proffering a host of immersive, novel travel experiences, to be forever cherished and remembered. To this end we have designed a series of sailing in Pelion excursions; for amateurs and accomplished sailors alike.
Sailing in Pelion: A day trip or a fully fledged holiday?
To give you just an idea you may opt for the day trip to Palaio (old) Triker, a tiny historic island, without vehicles, with a quaint fishing settlement and small quiet beaches; and the Caribbean like, Prasouda islet with the aquamarine waters and the Byzantine monastery on top. Departure is from Volos port or Kala nera; while the trip should take about 2-3 hours. Whilst on board, you may enjoy-along with the spectacular scenery-a special pic nic prepared by the team of Pelion Homes with Mediterranean delicacies and regional treats, as well as some refreshing, crisp white wine. Try this at dusk; as you gaze at the sun setting down, while being gently lulled by the soft waves. You’ll soon find out it is an unbeatable combination-which you may enjoy without worrying in the least as you’ll be safely entrusted in the hands of our experienced skipper.
On the other hand, if you’ re looking for a full on sailing in Pelion experience, you may select our 3 or 5 day sailing packages at the Sporades. Expect sapphire waters and green trees rolling down the hills; in effect a magical landscape to be savored under ideal sailing conditions: The winds and the waves are low even when the meltemi is raging in the Aegean; distances are small and islands’ coastlines form numerous bays providing safe shelter from all wind directions. Get acquainted with the lesser know nooks and crannies of cosmopolitan Skiathos; blue and green, idyllic Skopelos; picturesque Alonissos, home to the protected and rare monachus monachus greek seal; and even remote Peristera island with the lace like coastline or Kyra Panagia with the otherworldly, magnificent Planet bay, at its north side.
This is an one off experience -the likes we wholeheartedly strive to offer at Pelion Homes– to be relished with family and friends; and always under the guidance of our professional skippers. Try sailing in Pelion, and you’ll be forever hooked! Don’t hesitate to contact us and let us co-design the itinerary that suits your party size, composition and individual preferences the most!
