At the lower floor there are two separate bedrooms, one with a big double bed and one with three single beds. Two also separate toilets are close by, one smaller with a shower and one big with a bathtub. From the lower floor you can get to the courtyard where you can drink pure water from the private fountain of the house and enjoy dinner at the big stone table.
The house itself has a long and distinguished history. Built in the mid 18th Century, it was the birthplace of two important personalities. The scholar of Enlightenment Daniel Philippidis (1750 – 1832) and the mayor of Milies Argyris Philippidis, who was responsible for extending the famous steam train line to the village of Milies (which still runs today). There is a bust of Argyris situated on the way to the station of Milies. The house was fully restored in the 1980's by the descedant, internationally know architect Konstantinos Stamatis, and the result is truly spectacular. The house is located in the heart of Milies offering high aesthetics together with a feeling of privacy .Milies, has an altitude of 400m offering to you and your beloved a unique combination of mountain and sea.
The entire house is available to you.
Your lovely hostess Eva lives in the same complex. She is the latest descendant of this illustrious family, and she has spent many happy summers since childhood in this house, so you are in good hands.
Milies is a traditional as well as intellectual and the most cosmopolitan village of northern Greece. One can visit interesting sights such as the historical library including books and manuscripts printed in 1500, the local museum presenting the history as well as the folkloric wealth of Milies and the church with its the innovative structure and impressive frescos, while the arrival of the legendary train at the station is a unique experience not to be missed. You will be well served by a choice of 3 great taverns with regional cuisine, coffee shops, and cosy bar, two local supermarkets, and a pharmacy, which operate throughout the year.
Milies has an altitude of 400 m offering a unique combination of mountain and sea. The landscape changes according to every season. Discover in many different trekking trails, magnificent colours in autumn, flowers blossoming in spring time, century-old olive trees and an enormous variety of herbs. Plane trees offer coolness during summer. As Milies straddles the Pelion peninsula, you have a great choice of swimming locations, either in the calm waters of the Pagasetic Gulf to the South, or in the crystal water of the Aegean Sea to the North.
Milies is a traditional village, where you can arrive by car, bus and train, 365 klm from Athens and 28 from the biggest nearby city, Volos. At the same bus station in Volos, local buses can bring you to Milies, while there is also a direct connection with the nearby Airport. From Milies bus routes to many other villages and beaches are accurate but not so frequent. Renting a car will provide you with more independence. There are 2 parking areas entering Milies, one just before the church on your left and another one a bit higher. Descending the cobbled road, from the first parking area, you will reach the house, in 3' walk.
