On the mountain
In winter you can enjoy the ski resort of Chania, the only ski resort in the world where you can ski or drink your coffee while watching 2 different bodies of water, the Pagasitikos Gulf and the Aegean Sea, from the ski slopes, just 13 km from Melanthi. As for swimming in the sea, just 15km from the hotel, beautiful sunsets on unique beaches await you. There is also the possibility for underwater fishing in magnificent seabeds. In spring, admiring the variety of aromas and colours, you can walk on the cobblestones of the village or go to Portaria which is a 20-minute walk away. In summer you can enjoy your baths just 30 minutes from the hotel and come back to rest and enjoy the coolness and the pleasant mountain breeze. In autumn, in a feast of changing colors, you can taste Pelion in all its glory.
