Spyrou Philoxenia recently announced the addition of the Aglaida Hotel & Apartments to its portfolio, bringing the number of affiliate member hotels in Pelion to three. The other affiliate member hotels of Spyrou Philoxenia in Pelion include the Chania Palace and the Chania Hotel.

Agalaida Hotel & Apartments is located 3 km from the center of Tsagarada in Pelion and just 4 km from the Blue Flag Awarded Beach of Mylopotamos.

“Pelion as a destination is of strategic importance for Spyrou Philoxenia as visitors can enjoy both the mountain and the sea, making it truly a year-round destination”, said Dimitrios Schistohilis, Project Manager, Spyrou Philoxenia.

Spyrou Philoxenia aims to strengthen year-round tourism in Greece in order to boost the country’s economic recovery.  “We are keen to further promote the region to international markets who are traditional visitors to the area such as Germany and Austria, to increase the amount of visitors from the U.K., and to spur growth from Asia and the Balkans”, Schistohilis added.

George Michalis, the general director for Spyrou Hotels and Spyrou Philoxenia, underlined that the area is also served during the summer months with the airport in Volos, which offers an additional advantage.

“Pelion has great potential as a holiday destination throughout the year. Being able to fly into Volos makes accessing the area that much more convenient for visitors from Europe. Off season connections to the region include flights into Athens or Thessaloniki followed by land transportation to Pelion”, he said.
