Self-Catering Accommodation in and around the Pelion
Mountain biking, Pelion
(Sadly, useful only if you read Greek!)
Bus timetables – All over Pelion, also to Volos from Athens & Thessaloniki
Train timetables – To Volos from Athens & Thessaloniki. A highly temperamental site, but worth a look if you have a spare hour and a lot of patience
Other more foreigner-friendly transport information:
Ferries – From the Sporades to Volos.
Some personal favourites:
Athens – Hotel Art Gallery – In a quiet residential area just under the Acropolis. A home-from-home for cat-lovers.
Thessaloniki – Hotel Orestias Kasorias – Over-looking the ancient forum, one of the few hotels in Thessaloniki that isn’t on a noisy boulevard.
Vergina – Ktima Kalaitzis. Up-market hotel in its own vineyard about a mile from the World Heritage Site. This place is worth staying in just for the bathrooms!
