One of our favorite places to visit in Halkidiki is definitely Afytos, the village where every architect’s dream comes true.

Built on a cliff with steep slopes, Afytos is one of the most picturesque villages in Halkidiki. Enjoy the incredible view of Toroneos Gulf from the wonderful natural balcony that resembles an island settlement with cobblestone streets and stone mansions. The village has a long history, with indications of settlements dating back to 3000 BC, and it experienced significant growth as a member of the Athenian League.

Take a stroll through the alleys and admire the old cheese presses transformed into artistically painted flowerpots by artists who passionately executed the idea of sculptor Vasilis Pavlis, whose action of painting portraits on cheese presses depicts poets such as Seferis, Elytis, Penelope Delta, and hundreds of other Greek artists.

Vasilis Pavlis’s sculptures can be seen up close in the outdoor spaces of the village.

The Folklore Museum of Afytos is housed in the impressive mansion of Alettrás, where you will see tools and utensils used by the locals in the past.

Visit Monasteries and Churches

Your Halkidiki tours should definitely include monasteries!

Mount Athos is not the only land of monasteries; Halkidiki has a rich religious tradition in Sithonia and Kassandra. Combined with the influence of Mount Athos, it showcases temples and monasteries of unique beauty and architecture.

Discover the religious treasures hidden in Kassandra and the wider area of Halkidiki, just a short distance from Soleado Luxury Villas.

It’s worth visiting the Monastery of Zografou in the Municipality of Nea Propontida near Nea Moudania. According to tradition, the Monastery of Zografou was founded in the 10th century by three monks, Moses, Aaron, and John, brothers from Ohrid. In the 13th century, the Zografou Monastery had Bulgarian monks, so it is also known as Bulgarian. In the early 18th century and for a long time, apart from the Bulgarians, Serbs also lived in it, as well as many Greek monks. But from 1845 until today, the Bulgarian element prevailed, and only Bulgarian monks remained.

Among the Byzantine monuments of Kassandra that have survived and are accessible, are the Cemetery Church of Agios Athanasios in Fourka Halkidiki (1600) and the Early Christian Basilica at the site of Skala Fourkas, which are located in the broader area. Also, the Panagia Faneromeni chapel of the 16th century in Nea Skioni, just 19 km from Soleado Luxury Villas.
