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 1984

Why George Maranos chose Thessaly

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 home where I could enjoy these beautiful surroundings. The home is surrounded by idyllic mountain villages, lush vegetation, and breathtaking beaches. The biggest draw is having the calm waters of the Pagasetic Bay at my back door, something very few homes can boast.

Excellent property - kids will love it!

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is comfortable and cosy, but the best thing is its position - right on the Kalifteri beach. The beach and the water are excellent- and not very crowded at the end of July. The heat is moderate probably due to the mixture of sea and mountains - it is a perfect climate. The courtyard is safe for kids and there is enough space for them to play. There are a lot of vegetation around and it is easy to find some shady spots under the trees. The neighbourhoods are OK and the properly is accessible directly from the paved road. A car is not needed as the bus station is at the front gate, but I recommend getting a car for longer trips. George - the owner - is a nice guy and a very helpful person. He speaks English perfectly, I enjoyed chatting to him. My family enjoyed our stay here and we hope that we can do it again next year.

Owner's Response: Victor and his family were a pleasure to have as visitors. They were adventurous guests who discovered and enjoyed the sites in and around Afissos and provided constructive feedback on their vacation experience. They took excellent care of the premises and greeted me daily with a smile and a great attitude. Ideal guests, would love to have them back!
