An overwhelming paradise, full of turquoise waters and pine forests awaits in Halkidiki that gives exotic islands a run for their money! “There is nothing like Halkidiki,” say the northern Greeks and they know what they’re talking about. Get ready to succumb to the charms of its three beautiful peninsulas, namely Kassandra, Sithonia and Athos. The first two don’t discriminate, but the third is off limits to women, as it is home to the famous monastic state, Mount Athos.
Halkidiki has enclosed all the beauty you could possibly ask for in its 2,918 km2 and the approximately 105,900 residents can vouch for that. The residents are spread across its five municipalities, with a density of more or less 36/km2.
There is one general hospital that is also supported by five additional health centers. Halkidiki has no airport of its own but it is fully accessible by plane through the airport of Macedonia of Thessaloniki, while for those who prefer the sea, the closest ports are those of Thessaloniki and Kavala.
It’s almost unbelievable that such a paradise comes with so many affordable options property-wise. While it is noted that Halkidiki attracts many buyers from all around Europe and the rest of the world, its prices remain reasonable and finding the home of your dreams should be no problem.
Its many popular areas, such as Kassandra, Propontida or Kriopigi, all offer options that can appeal to any budget. Still, the prices, as competitive as they are, are definitely following a rising course over the past few years, so if you are indecisive, now it’s probably the best time to trust your instincts and take the step towards your dream home.
Finding a property in Halkidiki is an easy task indeed.
And that’s the beauty of Halkidiki; its diverse lifestyle that can satisfy every need, is reflected on its properties as well, offering a variety of options that can appeal to all ages, likes and budgets.
Halkidiki has more than twenty archaeological sites and the beautiful Mount Athos that has been a big part of the area’s history, even from Byzantine times. The great history doesn’t stop there, since we are talking about the birthplace of Aristotle, one of the most important figures in the world of philosophy and the world in general! Being in Halkidiki is like being in the presence of greatness but, having said that, it’s only fair to mention that in Halkidiki you don’t just get to admire the past, but live a very fulfilling present as well. Kayak, snorkeling, jeep safari and cave exploring are only a few of the options for the more adventurous, while those who just like to relax can enjoy a variety of spas, beautiful cafes, luxurious restaurants and charming boutiques.
