About George Maranos

I was born in Athens, lived in Canada while earning my degree, and emigrated to the United States after marrying my Greek-American wife many years ago. Love for my homeland's incomparable water and mountains brings me back to Greece and my summer home every year. I now am ready to spend more time here and share the beauty of this country with others.

George Maranos purchased this house in 1983

Why George Maranos chose South Pelion

I have been in love with the area of Pelion my entire life, as it offers both the wonders of the Pelion Mountains and the beauty of pristine waters. Having traveled extensively on my job, I have seen many areas of the world, but still derive the most enjoyment in this little piece of paradise.

What makes this house unique

I chose this property due to its proximity to both the beach and mountains, and built a comfortable home, I feel, worthy of its beautiful surroundings. The home is surrounded by idyllic villages, lush vegetation and breathtaking beaches. The back door opens to the calm crystal waters of Kalifteri Beach, something very few houses can boast.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Great place, the location is amazing, the house is comfortable and convenient, and the owner is very kind! The village of Afissos is within walking distance where you can find restaurants, shops. The property is located only few steps from the clear sea beach. It was the perfect place to stay and relax. Pelion is a fantastic destination.

We had everything we needed and hope to come back!

Vacances en famille

  • 4 of 5

Très bonnes prestations avec un accueil et une disponibilité parfaite des propriétaires. La maison est très agréable et très bien entretenue. Sur le même terrain d'autres locations sont possibles et plusieurs familles peuvent se réunir. On peut se rendre sur la plage simplement ...en traversant le jardin. Nous espérons y retourner.

An excellent holiday Residence

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay in this beachfront home. We were two families of 5 and 4 people with young children (the oldest is 9 years old). We were comfortably accommodated as the house is very big and the bedrooms are quite large. The residence was spotless. The location of the house and the residence itself were in reality as described and presented in the website. The owner was very frienldy, always keen to help and provide information for the area, for sightseeing, taverns. He was always there to help if we had any problems in the house. The sandy beach is literally 20 steps away from the residence and is well organised. You don't need to bring any beach equipment with you (umbrellas, sunbeds etc). Additionally the location of the house is strategic. If you have a car you can plan excursions to mountain Pelion and explore the forests, visit wonderful villages with excellent food. The city of Volos is not far away by car (20-25 minute drive). There are also other beaches nearby which are worth visiting.

Overall we had a great time, will definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the thorough and complimentary response. It was not difficult being a good host with such ideal guests as all of you. I appreciate your great attitude, willingness to try new experiences, and the care you took to leave my home in perfect condition. I would be thrilled to have you as my guests again! Thank you again George Maranos
