Great natural colours
On my trip to Halkidiki, I was invited to stay at a friend of mine in a village called Vourvourou. It is located at the second peninsula of Halkidiki, called Sithonia. This place combines perfect the mountain above the village with the bushy trees and the blue green, magnificent water of the beach. Between these two... the houses, small, traditional, with red housetops. The beach is one of the best I've ever seen, with great color and clean water. There are 9 tiny isles, visible from the shore. For those who prefer the mountain, you can always walk through the trees and get to the top easily, for an enchanting view of the bay below. In Vourvourou, you will find a small settlement of fishermen. Old houses mostly, that fishermen use to live there still, but you can buy some fresh fish, visiting the area. All in all, beautiful environment, but only for those that like their vacation to be relaxing.

No sights or extra services
The car trip to Halkidiki was pleasant and easy, although border crossing to Greece could be better organized, like a separate lane for EU citizens. The region was lovely, we stayed in Vourvourou in a family hotel and the owner was very kind. Beaches in Halkidikiare good for families with little children, in general the area is nice for families mostly and not for young people. No sightseeing possibilities whatsoever in Halkidiki, except for a boat trip we took to Mount Athos from Ouranoupolis. Athos was a very beautiful region, it is a shame that we can't enter it but I guess otherwise it wouldn't be so beautiful. Food was fine in Vourvourou, but service was a bit low. In two taverns, we waited for 40 minutes to get our dishes and in another we waited for 20 minutes to get the bill! There was a lot of people, yes, but I think waiters should be faster. Don't expect any extra services or sightseeing on Halkidiki, the sea is beautiful but that is the end of it. It is nice only for swimming and visiting villages.

Easy and pleasant place
Easy, wonderful and pleasant Halkidiki... I like Greek villages very much. Although the villages in Halkidiki are mostly resorts-like type, someone can always find places where the authentic athmosphere of the native Greeks grips you and you can feel in white and blue :) One of my favourite villages are placed in the eastern part of Sythonia (Vourvourou) and Athos (Ouranoupolis). As I have a small child, Vourvourou is the ideal place for family holidays: green grass, children playgrounds in front of houses, hospitable hosts and woderful sea close to the houses. Hotels also provide great service in Halkidiki. It is just that you need to do a bit of search. Some hotels actually do not respond to online reservations or respond too late. One actually answered me once I had returned from vacations.

Not crowded at all in April
Vourvourou beach was very nice and very close to the apartment we had rent. In April, there were not many people, so we were almost alone at the beach. The village is pretty small, clear and quiet, in a few words it is a lovely destination! The taverns were good and the service excellent. People were friendly and they cook deliciously. However, not many taverns were open in April, I think they usually open in May or early June when tourists start to come. Halkidiki is generally a great place to see and had many nice beaches. Do not miss to take the boat and go to Mount Athos. You can also take the boat and make the tour of the area.
