The apartment was very well located and clean and tidy with everything you need for your stay provided. Nikos and George were very warm and welcoming, and I'd like to thank them for making us feel at home straight away. It was so good to have them at hand for any questions we had about the local area, like having our own guides. We couldn't have asked for more from the service we got and would definitely consider going back again.

Some days it was hard to leave and go exploring because the villa has such a gorgeous environment with spectacular views. It was absolutely sparkling clean and fantastically equipped to a very high standard that really does make you feel spoilt; it really felt like home from home. The location of the villa is superb; it is at close walking distance to all good things Platamonas town has to offer, but also far enough from the noise. There are many lovely beaches, more than we could get to see in a week, some almost empty, and even on the busy ones, you could get a decent patch of sand to yourself. I listened to the sound of the waves and watched the sunset every night and it was probably the most breathtaking sunset I have ever seen! Absolutely unreal. The communication and customer service with Tasos, the owner was excellent. We would totally recommend this home - the memories will last a lifetime! I can't wait to visit again next summer!.

There are two bedrooms with small balconies, spacious living room with kitchen and dining area, bathroom and a very nice and large patio in shade, with beautiful view to the beach. The kitchen is well equipped (large fridge with freezer, oven, with full table and cookware). The apartments are placed in a very nice and well maintained garden only few steps from the beach. The entire property is very clean and well maintained. The owners of the property are very kind and professional providing excellent customer service. Geoponika bay is a 1,5 km long sandy beach with clear turquoise sea. There are several restaurants close to the house, beach facilities but not crowded. The surrounding settlement manly consists of vacation houses of the citizens from Thessaloniki therefore the vibe of the place is different from those commercialized tourism focused places. Thessaloniki is only half an hour drive away offering plenty possibilities for different activities. There are also several very nice villages around to visit and Casandra and Sithonia are less than one hour drive away perfect for daily trips. Alongside the seaside there is a very nice road without traffic for running, biking and walking. The place is perfect for relaxing holiday but also with interesting places to visit and lovely beaches and astonishing sea to enjoy.
