Autumn getaway in Pelion
In the summer we can not stop looking at its wonderful beaches. Mylopotamos, Damouchari, Fakistra, Horefto and a whole host of others, both in Pagasitikos and sometimes in the Aegean, reminded us of the charm of Mount Pelion, where the mountain meets the sea in a fascinating combination.
As the autumn slowly approaches, the time comes to climb up villages and settlements of amazing beauty, drowned in nature and scattered in Pelion, one of the most beautiful places in Greece.
Going up from Volos, leave yourself to the feast of nature and the jewels of Pelion architecture, with Pagasitikos at your feet.
Why you should visit Pelion during autumn?
The beginning of autumn has its own beauty. The foliage of the trees sings its swan song into notes of colorful and harmonious. The mountain changes face by abandoning the green and wearing the colors of the arc. It is the season of chestnut and walnut trees. And if one does not notice this, the squirrels will remind him of it as they become busy in the trees above.
For lovers of post-hiking walking holidays the period from mid-September to mid-October is the best season as the temperature is pleasant and the sea clean and cool. All over Pelion is a more peaceful and relaxed atmosphere thanks to the fact that most visitors have already returned to their homes in urban centers, leaving Pelion in the autumn tourists.
The weather at the end of October is usually sweet and the days are sunny and seductive. November is sometimes rainy and relatively cold, but quite often it competes October in sunshine and sweetness. Greek and foreign fanatical friends of Pelion return to the weekends and celebrations for another meeting with the purity and nobility of the mountain and the beauty of the sea as well as the supply of apples, walnuts and chestnuts for the coming winter. The fireplaces are in their glory with the chopsticks and the chestnuts drank in the hill and their friends sitting around to make plans for winter holidays and skiing.
