Why we visit Halkidiki every year | #TheFriends
My first visit to Halkidiki was in 1984, it was my first trip to Greece and I just fell in love with the place so much that I have visited every year since!
There are lots of things that make Halkidiki special - the beautiful beaches, the warm blue waters, the amazing views, the delicious food, the many villages and resorts each offering different types of holiday, but most special are the local people - they make you welcome, treat you as a friend and make sure you enjoy your holidays!
We always stay at the same hotel and we are made very welcome - and we are treated like V.I.P.s, we always feel we have come home!
We have made so many happy memories in Halkidiki over the years but the most special one happens around sunset every day - it’s sitting with a glass of wine just watching the last few people on the beach, and as the sun disappears and you look out across at Sithonia everything turns pink - it’s the most beautiful sight!
We can’t wait until we can return to our second home once it’s safe to travel!
