Welcome to Pleiades Hotel, Mt. Pelion
Situated on the top of Mt Pelion at an altitude of 1340m., with unique breathtaking sea views on either side of the mountain, the award-winning Pleiades Hotel is a natural resort for those who seek to combine luxury and adventure all year round.
Its close position to the town of Volos (only 30min by car) and the coastline of both the Aegean Sea and the Gulf of Pagasiticos, ensures an abundance of fun destinations within easy reach as well as facilitated transit to and from the Sporades islands, Athens and Thessaloniki.
The hotel name is inspired by the mythical Pleiads; seven sisters who followed in the train of Artemis, the ancient Greek goddess of the Hunt, and ascended into the skies to form the Pleiades open star cluster in the constellation of Taurus.
These blue stars are the most visible to the naked eye in the Mediterranean night skies and many visitors come to our hotel to observe their brightness away from distracting urban lights.
