At the Old Silk Store the accommodation is homely and cosy. On the first floor there are four twin rooms for rent. Ideal for those that are seeking accommodation with culture and character rather than a glitzy hotel. . My place is good for couples and solo adventurers and animal lovers. It is also popular with those that love old buildings and architecture. The price does not include breakfast. Wi-fi only available in shared areas not in the rooms.
The renovation of the Old Silk Store was done sympathetically maintaining as many of the characteristics of the house as was possible. This is a house where one can feel the spirit and craftsmanship of those that built it. A house where the stairs creak and many footsteps have trodden the wooden floor boards. The accommodation and the shower rooms are simple. It is a space for those who love old buildings and appreciate the architecture of days gone by. If you are looking for glitz and glamour this will not be for you.
Guests have two courtyards that are for their use. The main courtyard with flowers and seating area. And another smaller courtyard where there is a very basic outside kitchen area. It is possible to make simple snacks and salads.
Guests have access to a fridge if there is not one in their room.
I am delighted to advise guests on what to do and where to go. There are some things easy to miss on a first visit to Pelion. I can even advise on places a bit further away, like the Meteora Monasteries.
Be prepared to fall in love with Pelion. It is magical and you will want to return time and time again.
- Small children must be accompanied around the steps and in the garden.

I am English and I first fell in love with the lush Pelion Peninsular about 35 years ago. I have lived in Mouresi for 30 years. I am very familiar with the Greek customs, food, mule-tracks and building procedures in old properties. I am helping a friend host her property Persifoni's view as she has not done this before aswell as managing my own.
I describe this area as the magic mountain, the nature is powerful, inspirational and healing. I can give excellent information on Pelion, the best places to visit (all are beautiful) but some more beautiful than others.
Also I have information on the local activities in the area. In Damouchari harbour( of Mama Mia fame) there is kayaking and paddle board. Or join our local Pilates class in Tsgarada (the next village). I lead guided walks or
have maps available for those who like to self guide.
I have a very silly sense of humour once in the mood. With friends we have
just made a video of our version of "Dancing queen" at Damouchari.
In the very hot weather a friend and I made use of all the mulberries dropping from the trees and made delicious ice-lollies and then tested them out on my friends. Always ready for some fun if time allows.
I can also provide a lot of information about some other destinations in Greece.
My choice of food is healthy I am a vegetarian, love salads and the local fruit.
I love animals but because I have my own on the premises I cannot accept dogs.
