Greek Pelion....Homebase? Nice Accommodation?

Jump to last reply

I would love the benefit of advice from people who know this area. Our large family of 20 (all adults) will have 3 days following our trip to the Zagori Villages and Meteora this June, and we want to maximize the little time we have left at the end of the trip at nice beaches/seaside towns.....which led me to the Pelion area as we will be diving. Am I correct?

We will be visiting Meteora on a Wednesday and most of the family will need to arrive in Athens at some point on Saturday to fly back to the US on Sunday. We can either arrange transportation to drive to Athens or we could fly.....no flights from Volos to Athens though, correct? Just Skiathos?

So my dilemma is whether it is best from a time perspective to stay on the mainland and then drive back to Athens, or should we go to Skiathos or Skopelos via ferry from Volos and then fly to Athens from Skiathos?

The next question would then be where to stay...we prefer to all be in the same *nice* hotel or vacation rental if possible, very close to the ocean.

I appreciate any advice, hotel recommendations and tips!
