The village of Zagora- panoramic view


Zagora is the biggest among the villages of Pelion, built amphitheatrically in a wooded slope of eastern Mount Pelion, with running waters, lush vegetation and a panoramic view to the Aegean Sea. The name is probably of a Slavic origin and means "behind the mountains". It is a village with rich history and tradition both in the arts and the letters from the Ottoman era. It is the hometown of prominent men who excelled in the past in science and commerce. During the 17th and 18th century, Zagora was a major commercial center, with a remarkable fleet, who was using Horefto as a seaport to transfer the local products of the region to the large ports of Europe.

The main economic activity of the area is related to agricultural products, with the apple "Zagorin" to be among the most famous ones. The last few years, residents have taken advantage of both the stricking natural environment and of the architectural style of the settlement to promote Zagora to one of the most popular tourist destinations of Pelion. Today, the village provides excellent tourist organization and is ideal for a four season-holiday.

Zagora consists of four districts with the respective squares and churches: "Perahora" or "Agia Paraskevi", "Agia Kyriaki", "Agios Georgios" and "Sotira". Our Boutique Hotel, Stamou, is located at the central and largest district of the village, that of "Agios Georgios", just 50 meters away from the main square and between that and the Health Center of Zagora.

The wider area

Numerous villages and beaches stretch along the Eastern Pelion in short distances from Zagora.

During the winter, the ski center of Pelion "Agriolefkes", situated just 25 minutes from our village, Zagora, offers ski lovers (and everyone else) a unique experience combining the mountain and snowy landscape with the sea background of Pagasitikos and Evia on one side and Aegean Sea and Halkidiki on the other.

During the summer, the blue and green water of Pelion beaches of "Horefto", "Ag. Saranta", "Parisaina", "Elitsa", "Analipsi" and "Omvrios", which are very close to Zagora (10-20 minutes, depending on the beach) are hidden ornaments with crystal and clear waters.

Mountain villages


The village of Puri is located 6km North of Zagora and in altitude of 450m, inside a lush forest which combines apple trees and chestnut trees with the wild and impressive vegetation of Pelion. The view to the Aegean Sea, Chalkidiki and Sporades islands is unique from the village and this is the reason that is called the "Balcony of Pelion". The central square is built on three levels and at the highest of them is placed the church of Agios Dimitrios (1743).

Close to the village, in a magnificent location is placed the monastery of Panagia Rasova dating from the 13th century. Meanwhile, between Zagora at Puri, the visitor can admire the stream of "kalokerinos", which forms a spectacular waterfall, the largest in Pelion.


Makrirachi is located 10km south of Zagora and in altitude of 300m. The village took its name from the fact that it is built in the middle of this long ridge, along the eastern side of Pelion. In Makrirachi, the "village of flowers" as it is well known, you will find a wide variety of gardenias, camellias, hydrangeas and more, since the villagers are principally occupied with the production of flowers.

At the center of the village, in the central square, dominates the church of "Agios Ioannis Prodromos", while in short distances outside of the village, there are the chapels of "Agios Konstantinos & Elenis", "Ag. Anargyron" and of "Profitis Ilias".
