Don't be afraid: just do it! You will get addicted to it.

I must declare from the beginning that this report might be biased. The reason is that I have been a friend of both artists for many years, I love them and their masterpieces and I am lucky enough to have acquired a number of them over the years. My last visit was in August 2014, but I have also visited it many other tomes in the past. Whenever and wherever you are in this fantastic mountain called Pelion, you should not miss the opportunity to visit Eroterra, set in Tsagarada, one of the most interesting and historic villages of Mount Pelion. The unique paintings, statues and ceramic art pieces, cannot leave you indifferent by ant means. It is quite likely that at the end, you would not like to quit the place. A `must do` visit.

At least 1,000 years old, but the locals say, it is much older and only became important 1,000 years ago. Huge, circumference of trunk, 14 metres and each branch is as thick as a normal tree trunk. Now it's branches are supported by a marble pillar as they are too heavy, but it is a fascinting tree and its roots are at least 4 metres underground.
Lovely area with small cafes and restaurants around about. The Evli at the top of the square is to be recommended. Definitely worth a visit and has a car parking place at the top of the square which is a real plus in The Pelion area.

This is a nice walk down towards the Mylopotamos gorge. You hear the water gurgling in the gorge, as you approach. It is downhill, but the scenery and leafy trees provide good shelter and a romantic setting. There are benches to sit and rest on the way.
At the end you see this ancient stone bridge, with a pointed arch. Very pretty, built in 1728, well worth a visit and photo.

This lovely garden abuts a beautifully restored farmhouse dating from 1731 (ask Doris to show you her cozy kitchen with its original flagstone floor and her quirky, painted toilet!).
While the house is a gem, it’s the garden people come to see. The 3,000 square metres of sloping, terraced Gardens are thick with plants and dotted with works of art, a menagerie of animals, Fountains and ponds, lined with stone walls and crisscrossed with paths. There’s a surprise at every corner, from the toad sunning itself on the edge of the fish pond to the ripening raspberries in the lush vegetable patch (where you can finally see what “xorta” looks like).
Doris is warm and welcoming and has been collecting and receiving plants from all over Europe which thrive in the warm, damp climate of the eastern Pelion. Not surprisingly she is very knowledgeable and delights in showing guests her collection and dispensing local horticultural knowledge. She refuses to use herbicides and pesticides and is constantly seeking ways to attract more wildlife (the latest plan is to hollow out an old tree to attract bees).
Visits are by appointment (indicate time and number of visitors) and an honesty box is provided to cover entrance fees. Jams and preserves were also for sale (all are organic) and maps can be purchased showing the network of local hikes.
Various Exhibitions are held in the Gardens throughout the year, so check the website to see whether your stay coincides with any.
A lovely way to spend a morning, after which you can wander up to Tsangarada and enjoy lunch in the wonderful Agios Taxiarchis square (the yellow Agnanti taverna was recommended to us though we didn’t have time to try it).
Tip: if coming from Tsangarada, it’s much faster and almost easier to walk down to the Gardens than to drive (there’s a map on the website).

Tsagarada and the wider area of East Pelion is the ideal place for hiking the network of traditional kalderimia that connect the old villages. The footpaths take you through chestnut and beech Forests and the bright blue of the Aegean catches your eye through the trees. Come and enjoy the delights of walking in wonderful surroundings, while learning about the history and tradition of the region.
Finding the old bridge, if you arrive by car, is required specified: most can not be seen from the road and there are no signs notice where it is. The only way is to keep track of all the characters (even those intended for vehicles from the opposite direction) and are looking for a sign pointing to the cafe "Old Bridge" (which does not work).
When you finally parked car, find a bridge, skip it and continue walking because the track leading to the main road and you will be 50m away from where you start the tour.
Nature is fascinating simply breathtaking.
