Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The house is located down a narrow street 50 meters from the beach. It is a very well kept, clean, well designed vacation home. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed for a week long stay. The kitchen is small but good enough for cooking basic meals, if needed. Like other vacation homes, if you want to cook, you'll need to buy everything including salt or oil for example. The owner is very kind and helpful despite her limited English. We thought it was very thoughtful and uncommon that a welcome basket was waiting for us when we arrived with coffee, juice, bread, butter, jam and more. We found nothing lacking in the home. We enjoy quiet places by the beach and Chorto is exactly that. We also enjoyed the more remote beaches south of Chorto. If you're up to it there are a lot of small coves to explore. We would definitely return to Villa Befani.

A lovely villa very near water and tavernas in this small and picturesque village. The owner, Mrs Fotini, was particularly helpful and friendly.
A car is essential in this area as there are lots of wonderful places and beaches to visit.

About the neighbourhood
Horto is a small coastal village located at the foot of southern Pelion, just 46km away from the city of Volos. The name was given to the village by Venetian merchants during the middle ages, and it derives from the word "Hortus", meaning "Garden" or "Paradise" in Latin. The whole village spans alongside the Pagasetic Gulf line, combining all sorts of beach varieties (sand or pebble) on a mild and safe sea, ideal for children and novice swimmers.

Although the village remains beautiful all year long, it really comes to life during the summer months, where it offers ground for a multitude of activities, ranging from hiking along the river and waterfalls on the mountain through diverse flora and the chance to see the indigenous fauna, to sea sports such as saili...

Although there are many ways to get to Horto, the preferable one is by car, as it will allow you to visit other places on Pelion with ease. All transportation goes through the city of Volos, and then following the main Volos-Argalasti road alongside the sea. Horto is the first village 6km away from the town of Argalasti, towards the road going for the villages of Milina, Lafkos and Trikeri. <BR><BR>During the summer months there are frequent bus routes from Volos going through Horto. Specifically, buses depart daily from Volos at: 04:30 (except Sunday), 09:45, 12:15 (except Sunday), 14:30 and 16:30. Additionally there is a bas departing at 20:30 which stops at Argalasti. The return buses depart daily from the neighboring village Milina (and go through Horto) at 07:30 (Saturday... more
