Welcome to Halkidiki
The jewel of northern Greece, which measures 500 km of coastline and rich in natural beauty, could not be other than Halkidiki.
It consists of three peninsulas, each of which protrudes into the waters of the Aegean Sea.
The Garden of the Virgin, or Mount Athos, Kassandra and Sithonia invite you to explore.
The land part of Halkidiki is covered by virgin coniferous forests and is crossed by two rivers, the Havria and the Olynthos.
Aristotle’s birthplace, Ancient Stageira, the ancient city of Olynthos, the Cave of Petralona, where the skull of Petralona was discovered, the Sanctuary of Ammon Zeus, the ancient city of Mendi, many beautiful coasts, delicious local products, museums, festivals are only some of the reasons why you should visit Halkidiki.
At the beginning of the last century, Gerakini was a small settlement of the workers of the mine in the area but now, it is an excellent summer holiday destination in Halkidiki.
It is located in the ideal location in Sithonia, so except from the wonderful beach, you can do tours to beautiful places at the peninsula of Sithonia and Kassandra.
Gerakini, praised by the great Greek poet, Nikos Kavvadias, who visited her in one of his boats, is waiting for you mainly for family vacations.
Sithonia, the second peninsula of Halkidiki, is located between the peninsulas Kassandra and Mount Athos. Sithonia is surrounded by the Toronean Gulf at the east side and the Singitic Gulf at the west. From the airport of Thessaloniki it takes approximately one hour to reach the Sithonia peninsula by car.
Sithonia was named after Sithonas, son of Poseidon (Poseidon is in Greek mythology the god of the sea)
Small harbors with fishing boats are added to the endless charm of the Sithonia peninsula. The dense forests alternate with olive groves and picturesque meadows, making Sithonia one of the most beautiful nature reserves in Greece.
Among the most interesting places to visit in Sithonia is the village of Parthenon. It is located on the slopes of Mount Itamos and has stone houses, taverns, a museum, sea views and beautiful sunsets. It is only few km from our complex and access is very easy.
