The best thing about Pounda Paou is the amazing views - but that said it is a really relaxing place to stay, so lots of time to admire the views.
We stayed for a week, having transferred from a week at Agios Ioannis. It was a great contrast - the mountains and beaches further north were superb - it took a little while to get used to the gentler scenery of the Gulf. We drove a lot - down to the end of the Pelion and Trikeri Island - and along the Aegean coast with its waves and turquoise sea. We didn't have a boat - and didn't miss it.
We mainly ate out in the evening - eating in was excellent but expensive. This is a place that has a lot of "returners" and we felt the atmosphere was a bit exclusive compared with our first week. We don't speak Greek and found explaining some things to the staff was occasionally difficult. However it has the most beautiful view we have seen anywhere in the world.
