We booked the ground floor apartment at Tampakeika literally last minute. Themis, the owner, responded within minutes to confirm and his father, Mr. Argyris, guided us patiently on the phone while we were driving to Pelion from Athens for the first time AND in the dark AND under torrential rain. It was a gift to arrive at such a beautiful place and unseen before hospitality. Everything was thought out to make us feel at home: crispy ironed sheets, books, fragrant shower and shampoo gel, homemade jams, apples, orange pie, chestnuts, an overflowing cornucopia for breakfast, olive oil, honey, a private yard overlooking the Aegean... need I write more? Mr. Argyris and crew made our 4-day Pelion adventure a delight even on the coldest rainy day of our stay. We've enjoyed driving around, walking, swimming at beautiful clean waters, sun-bathing, even working a little bit.
At Giasemi Tampakeika, there is privacy, peace, friendliness, generosity, cleaning services every day (including doing the dishes as well as fresh sheets and towels as early as day two!) and amazing views (and orange pie... definitely orange pie!).
We're certainly coming back for a longer stay. We thought it would be perfect to book all apartments for a retreat. Themis, get ready for our return!
Σου ευχόμαστε υγεία, πολλή αγάπη κι επιτυχίες :·)
