We spent 14 marvellous days at this very special place and enjoyed a really overwhelming breakfast with all kinds of fruits and vegetables and other products out of Filaretos‘ garden and the surroundings. We swam in the seas on both sides of the peninsula and we climbed the mountains between them, always with a taste of Mariannas’ and Filaretos’ handmade delicacies; sometimes having some of them with us for a picnic. Thanks to them ! A highly recommendable place!
Fit for a fairytale, Amanita is the stuff that dreams are made of. Pristinely clean and cared for, the passion Filaretos and his family embody cannot but touch your heart. There is a peace and serenity at Amanita that one cannot quite pinpoint the origin of – is it the exquisitely tended garden with its herbs, or the stillness of the stone building, or is it from its people who simply appear to be keepers of life’s secret to happiness in all its glorious simplicity? Whatever the origin, there is a feeling of exclusivity at Amanita that is renewed every day in a different way: a breakfast that is so much more, a paper map being unfolded over a wooden table in order to guide you to secluded beaches, a mattress that even a Princess would not feel a pea beneath. This is a place where one feels that they are in the hands of a Friend of Good, try it and you’ll understand all the 5 star ratings!
If you are looking for a guesthouse that will satisfy all of your senses, then this is where you will want to stay! A culinary tsunami every breakfast and dinner, with fresh ingredients from the organic garden, local woods, and neighboring farms. The rooms are so clean, beautifully appointed, and the surrounding countryside affords stunning views of the mountains and Aegean sea. The owners are friendly, helpful, and quite comfortable to be around. Prices excellent, atmosphere informal and gracious, and it’s not far from the beaches.
We came to Amanita after a few days in Zagori and Meteora. We experienced all kind of hotels and guest houses, some were good some less but Amanita was by far the best place we visited and actually one of the best hotels we visited ever. It states with location in very nice place in the mountains of Pelion, continues with wonderful rooms where a thought was given to every detail. Breakfast is certainly one of the highlights and most of all the very nice owners and especially Fileretus who was always open and friendly and gave us very good advise.
Unser erster Urlaub ohne Kinder hat uns in dieses Paradies geführt! Ein wunderschönes Zimmer und wahnsinnig nette Gastgeber und ein sehr leckeres kreatives Frühstück zum Start in den Tag!
Ο ξενώνας Amanita στην Τσαγκαράδα είναι καταπληκτικός, το δε πρωινό του από τα καλύτερα που έχω γευτεί σε ξενώνα. Σπιτικό ψωμί, σπιτικές πίτες, βιολογικά προϊόντα από το περιβόλι του ξενώνα. Κάθε μέρα και μία έκπληξη. Το δωμάτιο μας πολύ ωραίο με θέα στον υπέροχο κήπο και θάλασσα. Η τοποθεσία του ξενώνα τέλεια. Πολύ κοντά στην παραλία Μυλοπόταμος.
We had the most enjoyable time at Amanita, Filaretos and his family are outstanding hosts. The breakfast was out of this world and the knowledge about local cuisine we gained from talking about the ingredients was huge.
Le cadre est somptueux, notre logement était superbe, tranquille, bien décoré, confortable, parfaitement propre. Quant aux petits-déjeuners, ils sont tout bonnement exceptionnels. Des produits venant directement du jardin, servis en abondance.
What a wonderful place! The hosts and owners, Marianna and Filaretos, are incredible people. Everything here is amazing, provided you love nature, great food, and supporting local traditions…Amanita should become the future of hospitality!
Amazing place to stay, very quite. Lots of herbs and beautiful garden with fruits and vegetables. Breakfast is very tasty and the owner does above and beyond to make your stay pleasant.
There are no words to describe it! Best accommodation experience, best homemade full organic breakfast, most hardworking and passionate owners! They deserve infinite stars like the ones on the Pelion night sky!
Perfect place to stay. Great breakfast, the appartment is big, very clean and well decorated. My wife and doughter are Gluten Free and got every breakfast a new suprise.
Sandie and I would like to thank you and your family for your hospitality at Amanita Guesthouse. We had an exceptional time and we will always remember our time in Pelion and the oasis which is Amanita Guesthouse. Apart from anything it was a culinary journey we will never forget. You presented the most wonderful, imaginative and authentic food we have ever experienced.
