In the old days, there were no roads; no snow-ploughs. During winter, when the snow started, the village of Vyzitsa became impossible to live in, as did many other villages in Pelion. The villagers had their winter homes at a lower altitude and during the winter they generally moved down and spent the winter collecting their olives. Argireika was one of the places the villagers moved to. It had five cafes, a school and a church and all the villagers lived there from October till March.



The house, which has been fully renovated, belonged to the parents of the current owners. Andromachi was the aunt of Vangelis, and the house was named after her.

The house

The property comprises 61 square meters and is set on a plot of 600 square meters, just beside the narrow gauge track of ‘Moutzouris’, the famous little train of Pelion, and on the side of the road linking Vyzitsa and Kala Nera.

Tranquility is guaranteed. However, if you want to join the crowds, you can go to nearby Kala Nera or Vyzitsa, or travel a little bit farther to Agios Giorgis, Pinakates, Milies, Gatzea or Koropi.
