Chorto at a glance

A quaint seaside village with a population of just 150, Chorto is a tranquil getaway location that really allows you to get into the rhythm of Greek life. Surrounded by olive groves that spill all the way down to the beach, the magical stone and wood homes in Chorto’s meandering streets are surrounded by lush Pelion peninsula nature.

Days in Chorto are all about mesmerising days by the sea, and trying out different meze and ouzo spots that are loved by locals. The village has a long and illustrious history, dating as far back as 8BC. Mixed in with the traditional stone houses are sweeping mansions, one of which is home to the Aggelinis museum, where a swathe of excavated relics can be discovered.

While Chorto is a peaceful and largely untouched part of Greece to spend a holiday, it also has incredible cultural kudos thanks to its indoor and outdoor theatre. Hosting musicians and performers from across the world, this is a place to enjoy one-of-a-kind performances.
