Polichrono holidays are a sneak-peek into Greek village life, with some Blue Flag award-winning beaches and tasty taverna grub thrown in.

Clean and serene

Polichrono's a traditional village on the east coast of Halkidiki, in northern Greece. The whitewashed houses, flowers framing the buildings and classic tavernas provide the perfect setting for relaxation.

Unique days out

For something a little out of the ordinary, hike to Lake Mavrobara to visit the resident turtles. Or, embrace your spiritual side by cruising past the monasteries of Mount Athos – boats leave from Ouranoupolis, about two hours' drive away. If you fancy village-hopping, head over to rustic Afitos – just 15 minutes away by car – for a Greek coffee in the old town square.

White sands, blue skies

A seaside holiday needs a good beach, and Polichrono's got seven kilometres of Blue Flag award-winning finery. Gaze out at the blue-green Aegean Sea, get involved in sailing, scuba diving or kayaking, or just chill out on a sunlounger.
