Karavia Lux Inn
Ranked #1 of 29 Specialty Lodging in Volos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We can only find positive words for Karavia Lux Inn. It looks exactly like the pictures on their website, I could not believe it first but it is true. The hotel is new and opened just a year ago - and this can be seen everywhere: the rooms are really modern with comfortable beds, the public spaces come up with nice furniture and stylish details. The only 10 rooms are set around a big pool and they all have a stunning and breathtaking sea view. There are not many places that offer such a location in a peaceful surrounding in the middle of olive trees above the town of Afissos. The Karavia family takes good care about this small gem and are very good hosts. The breakfast is tasty with many home made items. We ate twice in the evening at the hotel restaurant, the prices are reasonable and the food was excellent, I can not recommend enough to have also dinner there. Afissos town is approx. 5 min by car, a car is a must because the hotel lies really remote. All in all, the perfect place to spend holidays in one of the nicest parts of Greece. Karavia Lux Inn is the perfect small hotel to stay in.

Room Tip: All the rooms have sea view, some have small kitchen inside. The ones by the restaurant are a bit no...

Karavia is an amazing hotel. Situated on top of Afissos, it has a fabulos view over the Pelion Golf. The rooms are elegant and very well decorated. Breakfast is excellent and with a good variety of food. Also the food from the restaurant is excellent.

The staff was very friendly and helpful.

A beautiful view, excellent rooms and most comfortable beds. But... It is more than walking distance from the beach as well as the town and can be quite noisy when families with children spend time around the pool all day.

We booked the Hotel early in 2013, when there was almost no review on it....and what a great choice it was! The hotel has a fantastic location, with an amazing view! I think it is the best hotel in the area as it will be difficult for others to match it. The owners - Karavia family - pays particular attention that you enjoy your stay. The staff is very welcoming, ready to help and to meet your demands. Special remarks for the 'chef' - he prepares amazing 'appetizers' and not only! One advice: rent a car! It will be more conveninent for you to reach the hotel location and once there, you will be 5 min by car from Afissos. You should visit among others Meteora, Mylopotamos, Mikrinitza - amazing places. Things to be improved for the hotel...not much, maybe the morning cofee!

Room Tip: Rooms with sea view are the best!

We stayed mid-July for 4 nights at Karavia-lux-inn and we totally enjoyed their warm hospitality! The buildings are beatiful, new and rooms are perfect, with luxury modern style and dexoration. Beds are excellent (Coco-mat) and offer the perfect sleep and relax. Bathroom nice with amenities, perfect balcony view (with space and prive table, to enjoy your meals, ordering room-service). They have geo-thermal system and for summer it was a pleasant surprise (cool walls and ceiling) Generally, as accomodation is really enjoyable and relaxing... Breakfast is excellent. Freshly made, delicious traditional Pelion pies, of any type, changing every day. Fresh juices, what ever coffee you may like, and cooked as ordered omelletes!
There bar and restaurant stay open till 23:00+ offering service next to the pool. They of course serve visitors, but no annoying sound at all, for quests if they want to sleep...
Personally, i think that it's nice to have a restaurant there, for room-service, although it's just ok and nothing exceptional (tries to follow a gourmet style, but tastes were plain)...
We have nothing to complain about and we totally recommend this place if you go in Afissos, as the place compines mountain and sea, has a lot of green and it's close to Milies Village and many other South Pelion seasides. Trust photos here and in their website, it's just like that!
Just note that you need a car to visit the place (free parking just outside), as it is really up-hill (no way to climb up there by feet from sea) and there is nothing close, as the hotel" is nested around olive fields.

Room Tip: The up-hill 206 corner room was perfect, offering nice balcony with 360 view to the Pagasitic Gulf a...

What a fabulous place! Set up on the hill top surrounded by Olive groves and looking out to sea. The sunsets really were just like on the website - perfect for kicking back on the balcony with a cold glass of vino! The room was stylish, clean and modern. The staff went out of their way to help in any way they could. They spent a lot of time with us helping us to organise where to go and what to see and do along with some great taverna recommendations. They booked horse riding for us and Olga even picked up some trainers for me in Volos as I had no appropriate footwear for horse riding! Pelion is amazing. Tourism is relatively quiet here so it has not been spoilt and it felt very lucky to find such a special place. It was so green with lots of beautiful wild flowers everywhere - not what I expected to find in Greece! The mountain villages are just magic and I'd love to return in the summer to enjoy the beaches.

Mountain and sea together. The hotel has a high position on the hill occasioning wonderful views over the bay, with magnificent sunsets. Comfortable and tastefully decorated rooms, with large private terraces. Nice arrangement of the outdoor space, with all amenities for relaxation. Five minutes by car upto Afissos (small village on the seaside, with very good taverns). Interesting places to visit in the area – beautiful landscapes and traditional villages (Makrinitza is a must). Last but not least, the worm hospitality of the hosts is certainly a plus to make you feel perfect.
