Only 40 minutes from Volos, tucked under the lofty ridge of the Pelion Peninsula, Afissos could play the role of a classic Greek village in a film.
Its amphitheatre of traditional tile-roofed houses rises above the orchards and a coast scalloped with beaches. Make a beeline to the pebbly cove of Lagoudi, 1km north. Across the still waters of the Pagasetic Gulf, the towering mountains on the mainland shimmer like a mirage. Bring supplies, bring the kids, and linger to watch the sun sink into the dark sea.
Travel's tip: You can stay within earshot of the waves on Afissos's sandy Kalifteri Beach- Six Keys has six rooms and an award-winning restaurant
