Luxury Ouranoupolis Holidays

History on the headlands

Ouranoupolis takes you to the quieter, natural side of the Halkidiki peninsula in mainland Greece. The pretty town in surrounded by pine forests and offers a range of pristine beaches perfect for both families and couples. This peaceful area is home to historic buildings and a quiet atmosphere, with little shops, bars and restaurants where you can experience a taste of local life.

Explorers wanting to soak up some of the country’s history and culture will enjoy boat trips, which will take you past Mount Athos and offer the chance to see the glittering coastline from a different angle. The hotels here are upmarket, with excellent restaurants and a choice of 14th Century architecture or a more modern feel. Alternatively, wander around the 14th Century Byzantine Church or visit one of the monasteries where you can see the traditional monks’ way of life and enjoy fantastic views of Mount Athos.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Halkidiki is around 3 hours. 

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Thessaloniki airport to Ouranoupolis is approximately 2 hours.

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.
