Places to visit from Pefkohori

Hi, my wife and I are staying in Pefkohori for a week at the end of September. We have got a hire car and like to get away from the resort we are staying at, two or three times whilst on holiday . Has anyone got any suggestions for places to visit for a day. e.g. secluded coves, pretty villages, markets etc. Thanks

Hi there

Pefkohori is a great choice, but having the flexibility of a car is always an added bonus. My suggestions would be as follows:

Kassandra peninsula: you can drive round a 'loop' round the lower end of the peninsula and stop at any of the villages along the way. If you go south from Pefkohori you will come to Paliouri first (it is all one main road so hard to get lost) then heading up the other side you get Loutra, Nea Skioni, Possidi, Fourka (not sure that is the correct order) plus several other small villages. You then head across the peninsula past Kassandria to Kalithea then back down through Kriopigi, Polichrono & Hanioti before you get back to Pefkohori. You can of course do it the other way round, or keep going straight past Kalithea (without crossing to the other side) and visit Afitos which is a beautiful old village.

Sithonia: it is a long drive to Sithonia, but very beautiful and much less commercialised than Kassandra. Again, there is pretty much one road round the peninsula. To do the whole thing would take all day but I would say Nea Moudania, Vourvourou & Sarti are my highlights.

Caves: Petralona caves are impressive, but quite a long drive, back up towards the airport. www.petralona-cave.gr/index.php?lang=en

Market: there is a market on Tuesdays in Kassandria - it's good for foods & spices etc but the clothing & household stuff is pretty naff! I wouldn't bother if I were you!

Hope that helps - feel free to ask any more questions...
