Villa Koukourava in Pelion - Sleeps 6

This traditional old stone pool house in Pelion is over 125 years old and sits atop an outcrop of rock above the small village of Koukourava near famous Portaria and scenic Makrinitsa villages.  At 400m above sea level, it offers commanding views of the panorama of the sea, the mountains and Volos below. Both bedrooms in the main house lead on to a balcony overlooking the view and the large sun terrace which is a focal point for relaxing, eating and socialising and watching the scenery change. The terrace is perfect for alfresco breakfasts, lunches and dinners, barbecues and drinks or cooling off in the pool. Shade is also available on the terrace in the form of two established mulberry trees and a vine abre above the large slate table. There is one stone built guest room that is separate from the main house and it has a vaulted beam roof. The house has been furnished in a traditional style, and due to its stone floors and metre thick walls remains delightfully cool in the summer. Villa Koukouvara is the perfect retreat with a private pool in Pelion.
