The Old Silk Store is a cosy guest house situated in the heart of Mouresi village on the mountain side 350 metres above sea-level facing the Aegean. The village is encompassed by chestnut forests and apple and cherry orchards. The beaches of Papa Nero and Agios Ioannis and Damouhari are app. 4.5 klms away. THE ROOM HAS A PRIVATE BATHROOM BUT IT IS NOT ENSUITE. Village square is within walking distance also bakery/ mini market/4 tavernas.
Please note breakfast not included in the price.
The accommodation is for people who appreciate old houses and the craftsmanship of architecture from another era. The situation is Mouresi is ideal as a base for walking or for exploring the different beaches within a short driving distance or those a bit further afield.
The guests can use the garden in the main courtyard. There is a summer kitchen outside where simple snacks can be prepared this is a shared space for those rooms that do not have a kitchen.
I am able to offer help and information during guests stay.
The room has a private bathroom but it is not ensuite. It has two single beds side by side.
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.
