This is a charming, family-owned and family-friendly beach hotel with a warm and welcoming environment which is ideal for relaxation.
Sofokles Hotel is situated at Agios Ioannis, Pelion's oldest and most developed seaside resort on the north-eastern coast. It occupies a superb location right on the promenade overlooking the main beach of Agios Ioannis; an ideal spot for beach-lovers and swimming enthusiasts, who on waking will be faced with the irresistible temptation of an early morning dip under a bright, rising sun. A couple of strides across the road are most assuredly enticement enough for such a great pleasure just before breakfast, which can then be enjoyed on the hotel patio.
The hotel has a pleasant atmosphere and offers a total of 20 twin and double-bedded rooms spread over 3 floors. For guests who prefer to swim in fresh water there is a swimming pool. Sun loungers and parasols are laid out ready for guests on the sun terrace. They can also relax at the poolside snack bar. Guests can use the wireless Internet access free of charge. The bar is at the spacious reception lounge, which is particularly charming and inviting thanks to the use of local stone and various decorative natural objects found on the shore and the surrounding mountain slopes.
For late morning or afternoon swims one can have a choice of two more lovely beaches in the neighbourhood: Plaka, a stunning beach, which can be reached after a 5-minute walk, and Papa Nero, an equally splendid beach in the opposite direction, about 12 minutes away. What's more, for the adventurous there are more treasures waiting a little farther down the coast. A 2-minute walk will bring you to the village centre, where there are plenty of good restaurants and tavernas to choose from. Nearby is also the tiny, sleepy harbour, where one can observe the activities of the local fishermen, and the coming and going of the little craft used by both locals and visitors for their pleasure.
