Unfortunately we went to Pelion only for one day. We had heard a lot about how beautiful this area is, but we didn't have many days to explore it cause next day we would take the ferry to Skiathos. So, only one day at our disposal, we took the bus from Volos to Makrinitsa. We were told that this was one of the most beautiful villages of Pelionand in a short trip from Volos.

Indeed, the bus ride took less than an hour. The bus left us outside the village because vehicles are not allowed to enter this traditional village. There is a big parking space for cars outside the village. Entering the village, there were open markets with jams and fruit on both sides of the road and I liked that even hotels had maintained the traditional architecture. Most houses were two or three floors tall, made of stone and wood and no balconies (unusual for Greece!!).

All paths were paved and the square gave the most incredible view I have seen for years. "The balcony of Volos" I had read on a brochure and it was truly a fascinating view to see the town and the port of Volos, the fifth largest town in Greece, at your feet. I haven't seen any other village of Pelion but I tell you this, that Makrinitsa is one of the best mountainous places I have been in Greece. Wish to come back one day and see the rest of Pelion.

I spent a weekend at Makrinitsa, Pelion, last Christmas and really enjoyed the area. I am happy I chose a hotel in Makrinitsa, as it had great views to the port of Volos and the village itself was very picturesque. Have your trainers with you because paths are very stoney and may be slippery if it rains. Have your hot Greek coffee at the cafeterias in the square in the morning and then explore the other beautiful villages of the mountain. The ancient Greeks believed that Pelion was the residence of the Centars, some strange creatures half man half horse. The ski centre (in the area Agriolefkes) was very crowded and not that well organized. I wanted to try skiing but there were not enough equipment to rent :((

Portaria is blessed with lush green nature. All over and around the island, there is beautiful greenry, from the gardens to the forest around the village. Pelion is great for autumn time and early winter, before it gets too cold. Better have a room with a fireplace, like we did, it was a real experience. Drink hot coffee or chocolate by the fire, play table games, listen to music and let outside be snowing or raining... That is what we did in Portaria, except for trekking.

For me, Makrinitsa is the most picturesque village of Pelion. I loved its narrow paths, although some of them were difficult to climb. The view of Volos city and the sea from the square of the village is something increadible. The road to Makrinitsa is very comfortable. If you go in winter, stay in a traditional mansion. You will have the experience of a lifetime with the fireplace burning day and night and the snow-covered slopes out of your window.
