i was originally looking into kassandra for our trip to halkidiki but my cousin raves about neos marmaras and sai the area has some amazing beaches, also its where all the greeks go. We are greeks ourselves and ill be travelling with my mum and 18th month old daughter in august. Would love anyones help on suggestions of where to stay. Lagomandra seems to be one hotel i have found. i am looking for something within easy reach of the shops and taverns. we would rather not have to hire a car,but if we really need to then we will. also can anyone suggest how to get from thessaloniki airport to these areas?
