Luxury Halkidiki Holidays

Traditional Grecian charm

Halkidiki holidays offer an exciting Greek holiday nestled on a three point peninsula which stretches out into the Aegean Sea. It’s the ideal place to get away from it all, with goats and mules for company, rather than hordes of tourists. Halkidiki is perfect for couples seeking a romantic getaway and families looking for some fun in the sun. With some of the best beaches in Greece, you will be spoilt for choice as to which golden sands to sample first. There are unspoilt sands, Blue Flag expanses, secret coves, and hidden gems along the 300-miles of coastline edged with warm, azure waters.

Kassandra is at the western-most point, or the authentic Greek town of Ouranoupolis with its quaint central square and evening markets. You could also head to the Sani resort where you will enjoy over 1000-acres of sandy beach. Outside of the towns is a beautiful countryside made up of olive groves and pine forests trailing down to powder soft sands below. There are also traditional Greek tavernas dotted over the island, featuring authentic Meze dishes, as well as freshly caught seafood.

Luxury Holidays in Halkidiki

Up and coming Halkidiki offers a slice of Greek luxury to its holidaymakers, and a true sense of tradition and insight into Greek history. Sithonia presents a rugged and authentic side of Greece, sprinkled with charming fishing villages and picturesque pine forests. A luxury holiday in Halkidiki provides the perfect opportunity to experience Greece’s beautiful nature and wildlife in magnificent surroundings. There are plenty of walking and cycling trails along the coast, zig zagging inland, while beside the sea you will discover secret coves and hidden bays, which are footprint-free.

The sophisticated 1000-acre Sani resort offers deluxe accommodation with excellent facilities and stunning décor. Bordered by a golden Blue Flag beach, and swanky marina filled with priceless yachts, the resort also affords exceptional panoramic views out to Mount Olympus.

When to go

May to September is Halkidiki’s main beach-going season. Temperatures hover in the comfortable early- to mid-20s throughout the shoulder months (May and September), which are often good for fewer crowds and quieter hotels. Things start heating up in July and August, when the temperature can get into the early 30s.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece.


In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers. 

Introduction to languages

The official language of Greece is Greek.  English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
