We had such a wonderful stay in Amanita! We stayed there 5 nights and only wish we could have stayed longer...
The place is absolutely charming, with its tastefully decorated rooms, the magical garden, and the warm hospitality of Filaretos and Mariana.
Amanita is located in a peaceful spot near the woods, yet a short walk from the main road, and just a few minutes drive from Pelion's most gorgeous beaches. Milopotamos, the nearest beach, is absolutely gorgeous. We also took the old hiking trail from the hotel to Damouchari which was lovely, and from there to Fakistra beach (breath-takingly beautiful), we did some hiking in the woods and visited villages near by.
Breakfast... Well, breakfast was a daily delight! Surprising dishes each morning, lovingly made with fresh products grown locally. We also had dinner in Amanita one evening, which was superb! Try it, you won't regret it. :)
To summarize, we just came back from Amanita recently, and find ourselves planning our next vacation there... Doesn't it say it all? :)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- AMANITA is situated in a truly privileged location between mountain and sea on the eastern slopes of Mt. Pelion in the genteel village of Tsangarada in the Prefecture of Magnesia, Greece. Behind it soars Mt. Pelion, ancient home of the Centaurs; a mountain much sung of; a mountain where the trees cast deep shade and countless springs bubble forth. Gazing outwards from the Guesthouse one sees the blue of the Aegean Sea, spotted with the islands of Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonnissos. All around is the verdant countryside of Tsangarada with its renowned paths, centuries old trees, old stone fountains and bridges.AMANITA is a beautifully restored old mansion of the 19th century. The AMANITA Guesthouse consists of two buildings: the three-storey main house and a two-storey outhouse. We offer 6 accommodation options, 5 of which are located in the main house (2 suites consisting of 2 rooms, 1 three-bed room and 2 double rooms), and a self-contained, fully fitted 2-room apartment with its own kitchenette in the outhouse. The main house has two sitting areas, a breakfast room and a professional kitchen. We attach great importance to local cuisine. That's why our famous breakfast that we serve includes hand-kneaded bread, home-made jam and local specialities such as pies and herby omelettes. ... more less
