The place where we stayed is called Aeolos Hotel. It's in the mid-range of hotels in the area. We rented a one room apartment. It had a kitchen, with mini fridge and hot plate (and all the dishes, etc.), a living area with a t.v., and a long row of bench beds that could easily fit two adults, and a separate bedroom with a queen bed. It was simply decorated...like a Greek beach cottage. I wish I could describe it better, but at the same time, that's the best description of it. The hotel had a nice pool, and was smack across the street from the beach. Breakfast is not included, and it is expensive. We packed our own, but there are other options within easy walking distance.

Driving on the east side of Pelion is nuts. We were almost run off the road by a delivery truck. It's beautiful enough to make up for the tiny, scary roads.

It's possible that Pelion is my favorite place we've visited so far. There are not many sites to see, but it's a beautiful place to vacation. There are hiking trails, beautiful beaches, and few people, compared to other beautiful places in Greece. If I could, I would take a few weeks and run all over that peninsula.
