We haven't found it opened, but the architecture is something new for us...If you'll look with attention, on the "campanille" you will find the stone dove... is nothing to tell you that the dove is there (excepting this tip of course) so... it will be a nice surprise to find it...You can find here that special colour of Greece... and the calm of...more
This unspoilt, traditional Greek village enjoys a clifftop location with spectacular views. The sandy beach, reached by a steep track, is perfect for wathersports. You could spend few relaxing hours on the beach or enjoy in wild blackberries you could find in bushes around (as I did). Or... you could find a your place in some of tavernas on the...more
In 1858 the church of Agios (Saint) Dimitrios was built, a three-aisle "basilica" with dome, with local porous stone. It is the only "basilica with a dome" in Chalkidiki and has a unique rustic stone reliefs over the windows and the belfry. That is considered as the village's jewel, located in the centre of the main square. It's worthwhile for the...more

We had a very good, large pizza one evening and toasted sandwiches for lunch as they only did pizzas in the evening.Michael was given a bag full of sticky sweets which kept him quiet for the rest of the...more
The main highway across the peninsulas is a good road, motorway standard in places but it is also very dangerous. The Greeks travel either very fast or suddenly make a manouvre without signalling. At the weekends it was horrendously busy and most nerve racking, trying to anticipate drivers' moves.
We encountered a few accidents.
Other roads you would encounter the unexpected like fords. I would then have to get out and gauge how deep the water was; in early season it could be quite deep.
When we have chosen Greece for the summer holiday, we were already dreaming about taking photos with the unspoiled Greece... It was not easy to find such places but we can share with you some nice photos... we hope that you will appreciate them. Stones, blue sea, quiet life, a big discount at a shop in the city centre and that special smoothness...more
Staying at Kivizinis we had a fair few visiting cats. Most were very friendly and came into our room. One very bold ginger and white even slept with us on our beds!! (We would leave the shutters open and he would come in during the night!!)He also liked sleeping in the doorway and next to the fridge so he could have a good nosey when it was...more
