History and Culture in Halkidiki

Legend has it that Halkidiki was the site of a huge battle involving Zeus, Olympian Gods to the Giants, children of Gaea and Uranus. It is said that the leader of the Giants, Enceladus was buried on the peninsula of Kassandra and his unrest and his attempts to flee his tomb are supposedly the sources of any earthquake within the area.

The peninsula of Kassandra takes its name from Cassander the King of Macedonia who ruled Greece after the death of Alexander the Great.

Sithonia, one of the most beautifulk peninsulas is named after Sithon, the son of Poseidon, the god of the sea. The final peninsula, Mount Athos, is named after the giant Athos, who is said to have thrown a huge rock into the sea following a battle with Poseidon. The rock still stands today as the peninsula and Mount Athos or Holy Mountain is now a UNSECO world heritage site.

Family holidays in Halkidiki

When you are not lounging in your villas' private pool, you will find plenty of family filled fun at the various beaches in, and within, a short drive of Halkidiki. All of them are family friendly, providing shallow, warm waters and plenty of facilities and amenities to entertain all ages.

Our villas are located within easy reach to Pefkochori beach which has been awarded blue flag status for cleanliness. The crystal clear waters and the shingle beach are lined with plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars allowing you to spend the whole day there.

Fairytopia is a great amusement park for younger children, with outdoor playgrounds, trampolines, arcade and much more. This is an ideal safe place for children and families to have fun.

Our villas all come with wi-fi, so if the kids want to catch up on their latest shows or games, they can do so from the comfort of your villa holiday.
