In January of 2017, I visited Hotel Aglaída Apartments in Tsagarada in Pelion. I spent a wonderful weekend here to celebrate the two year anniversary of Travel Bloggers Greece, the first professional blogger network organization in Greece. It was a weekend full of hospitality, gastronomy, nature and fun. The destination specialist Spyrou Philoxenia sponsored and organized the trip and represents the hospitable Aglaída Apartments. It was here that we stayed for the weekend and I reviewed the hotel For Family Goes Out. I found this basic but charming accommodation hospitable, value for money ánd family friendly, and therefore it deserves a place on this blog.

Where is Aglaida Apartments?

The 3 * Aglaída Apartments are located in the Agia Kyriaki part of the traditional Tsagarada village. Tsagarada is an excellent starting point for exploring the area. It is near to the beaches of Milopotamos and Fakistra as well as all the important hiking trails. You can find more information on what to do and see in the area my blog post about Pelion. Did you know that Tsagarada means ‘beautiful view’ or another version is ‘royal village’? Well, I will stick with the first version because the views from here are truly amazing!

Besides stunning views, the 33 apartments at Aglaída Apartments offer hospitality, spacious rooms and beautiful surroundings. The apartments look like little cottages that are built against the mountain in traditional Pelion architecture with white walls and wooden ceilings and balconies. The rooms are basic but spacious with traditional sturdy wooden furniture, they have a kitchenette with a stove and a medium size refrigerator, a separate living room with comfortable sitting area, a fireplace and balconies or verandas overlooking the mountains and sea. There is enough cupboard space in the rooms and plenty of daylight due to the many windows. The parking space is directly outside the apartments. I felt that I was staying in someone’s country house instead of in a hotel. For families, I recommend the 2 room apartments but all are spacious and you can even stay in a one-space room with 2 kids. There are 3 junior suites (with bathtub and separate shower) at the hotel, these fit a couple with a baby. There is free Wi-Fi and TV in the rooms but I don’t think you will be looking much at your screens because nothing can beat the views over the green mountains and  Aegean Sea here!

For families

The property is car free and your kids can run around safely. There is a cozy reception/lobby with a bar and a sitting area where you can play some board games or relax. A large outdoor pool with a kids pool and safety fence around it is operated during the summer season.The breakfast area is large and suitable for big families to eat together. Breakfast is included in the room price and there is a good choice of products that your children will like. Traditional Trahanas soup and cheese pie was part of the breakfast during my winter stay. The hotel has baby chairs and baby cots. There is a lot of playful art around created by a local artist. Do you like Greek food? The hotel organizes cooking classes.
