Built in 1835 and restored by its owners Ioannis Prigkos, civil engineer and Katerina Papanatsiou, architect, Archontiko Prigkou is designed to welcome your most private and relaxing moments, offering you a unique holiday!
Originally designed as a private house for its owners, this traditional villa, built in 1835 and restored by its owners John Prigkos and Katerina Papanatsiou, civil engineer and architect, is located in one of the best locations in East Pelion.
With 5 unique rooms spread over three levels, Archontiko Prigkou combines traditional architecture with contemporary design; a unique combination that will offer an astonishing experience!
The centre of the village is only a five minute walk away, yet the villa is in a quite residential area, towards the back of Zagora and on the road to the next village, Pouri, having magnificent views to the mountain and out to the sea.
A door to the front of the villa opens into the hallway. This leads to the open-plan sitting room/kitchen. The fully fitted kitchen has full oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher and coffee machines. Traditional old windows from the sitting room open onto the terrace, with outdoor dining area. A double bedroom with a spacious bathroom may also be found on this level. In the next two levels of the property you will find another sitting area, and a swimming pool as well.
Stairs lead to the first floor with three further bedrooms, two of them with balcony and sea view, the last one with a nice village view. These rooms can accommodate up to 8 persons.
Archontiko Prigkou is perfect for those wishing to escape completely. Ideal for families or friends, with an accommodation capacity of 12 persons maximum, it is eminently suited to guests looking for more privacy than that provided by a hotel. Its main attraction is, undoubtedly, the wonderful spacious feel it provides.
All three levels of the property will be fully accessible (pool, yards and garden).
Interakcija s gostima
The owner of the house will meet the visitors upon arival, to welcome them, show them around the house and hand them the keys. He also has to visit the house every two days, at a time convenient to both parties, to water the plants and clean the pool. The owner will be reachable at any time on his/her cell phone or his/her profile on the famouse Zuckerberg's site for any questions / tips / advice / help the visitors might need.
The owner will spend part of the day in his office (the small building in front of the pool) where you can reach him in person.
We may organise a sightseeing of the village for you upon request.
Architecture, besides our job, is our passion, so we'd like to introduce our guests to the distinctive traditional architecture of Pelion. Architecture and history tours can be also provided upon request.
Archontiko Prigkou is a fully renovated and restorated old villa almost 200 years old, furnished with both modern and antique pieces, decorated with handmade ornaments that have a high sentimental value for the owner and his family. So, the first thing that someone expects from his guests is to appreciate and respect the history of the house and its equipment. Please note that the carpets shown in the photos are part of the decoration of the house only during winter months.
The garden is full of plants and flowers. The guests are free to collect with attention and affection some of them while in the meantime they have to respect and not to ruin the future production of the plants. The plants have to be watered and the pool filters cleaned, every second day. So the owner has to visit the house every second day after agreeing with the guests the time that is more convenient for both of them.
Cleaning and towel changing is OPTIONAL and is provided upon request with an EXTRA charge. However, you may use by yourself the washing machine and the detergent you will find at the house.
You are asked NOT to use the towels provided in the swimming pool or at the beach, as it is very difficult to get them cleaned afterwards, especially if they have stains from their use in the grass. Please be prepared and bring your own beach towels. Smoking is prohibited in the interior of the villa. Pets are allowed upon request.
CHECK IN TIME HAS TO BE PRECISE and communicated by the guests before the arrival.
CHECK OUT MUST BE MADE BY 11.00, because most of the times we have same day arrivals of guests and the house needs to be prepared and cleaned.

My name is Matina and I have studied Architecture and Urbanism. Having attended several workshops and seminars in Architecture Schools over Europe, I am quite familiar with building relationships from people all over the world and ready to explore new characters and cultures.! I am very fond of recycling and reusing things, so using my imagination in designing crafts and jewelry is another thing I enjoy doing. Photography and travelling are my passions, so, when not working, you will find me wandering in cities over the world with a camera on my hand. My parents are also engineers and are quite the character.
I decided to put my home on Airbnb because I wanted others to get to know the beauty of Pelion and in the meantime help my guests relax and have the best experience during their holidays, while offering them 24/7 service providing advice for all matters during their stay. My parents and sister are usually available and we'll be staying really close if anything happens.
In the meantime, except for my house, I started collecting new places and homes all over Magnesia. Feel free to check my profile for new entries anytime! I will be very happy if any of my properties manage to offer you a relaxing holiday in the Pelion area.
Let me be your personal advisor on your trips in Pelion and let's start organizing your trip in Magnesia together!
