Born to Cronus the Titan but raised by god Apollo, Chiron was considered to excel in medicine, music, hunting, archery and gymnastics with renowned prophetic powers. His heritage combined with his vast knowledge made Chiron the first amongst Centaurs to tutor the greatest of his era; Theseus, Achilles, Patroclus, Jason, Perseus and even Hercules and Asclepius were some of his many pupils, mythology says.
Distinct amongst his kind for being polite, wise and sage, Chiron is also mentioned in the myth of the Argonauts as it was he who welcomed them in his residence in Pelion, during their voyage back to Greece, as many of the participating heroes were his friends and pupils.
Chiron Residence is ideally located in a secluded and peaceful area yet close to a variety of points of interest, offering numerous escapades. Blessed as it has always been since the dawn of time, mount Pelion combines the breathtaking mountain forest views and the vastness of the deep blue Aegean Sea.
The nearby Nea Anchialos Airport serves seasonal direct flights connecting Volos to certain European cities, whereas the port of Volos offers frequent connections to the most famous islands of Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonissos, world known as the natural settings of the “Mamma Mia” film musical, starring Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth.
As you can easily see, Chiron Residence is not only a destination; it is also a starting point to discover even more.
When we created Chiron Residence we did not have just another vacation house in mind. Chiron Residence was made to be your home; a place we would happily live in ourselves. Thus we did not make any compromises in decorating and equipping this 120 sq. m. 3-level semi independent house with only the best.
Chiron Residence features all the amenities you will need in order to transform your stay to an absolute experience you will never forget. Just imagine your own house, in this magical place, waiting for you, any time of the year, available to accommodate your friends and family.
