    • Corfu - help with place to stay

      Corfu Island Sep 27, 2016 at 4:51 PM

      Hi there,

      Hoping for your opinions on which area to stay in Corfu!

      We have 4 nights in Corfu (July 9th - July 13th 2017).

      We have 5 adults and 2 children (6 and 8 years old).

      I have done lots of research but can't work which area to stay - it looks like there are many beautiful palces!!

      What we would like:

      - close to a beach

      - close to tavernas

      - 3-4 bedroom villa with private pool

      We would also like to have a little explore of Corfu old town.

      We don't need to be close to night clubs or late night bars.

      Which town / area would be best, in your opinion for a group of 7 with a nice beach and nice village / tavernas?

      I am wondering after a LOT of reading about Kassiopi...?

      Hi, just wandering if there any recommendations for children. We are hoping to stay at Maria Yiannis in Troulos and although this doesnt sound very child friendly the location looks superb. Are there any outdoor play areas / parks for children.

      If not i'm sure we'll be fine building sandcastles ;-)

      Ferry Tickets

      Greece Sep 26, 2016 at 7:10 PM

      I arrive at the Athens airport around 10 am and I see that a lot of the ferries leave at 7 am for the islands. There are others that sail around 2 pm for Santorini but would get into destination port late at night which I would prefer to avoid. I therefore figured that I would stay the first night in Athens and then take the 7 am ferry the next day. My question is, can I purchase ferry tickets at the airport or can they only be purchased at Piraeus? I thought I saw on the website that you may be able to purchase online but you still need to have the tickets printed off at the port. True?

    • Budget camping for single person

      Prefecture of Chalkidiki Jun 29, 2016 at 3:56 AM

      Hello. Ive been looking for a place to camp in sithonia but i am finding it difficult to find something reasonably priced. I have heard you can wild camp in this area but i'd rather support the local economy if i can get something within my budget. I looked at the armenitis campsite but when i filled out the dates on the booking form it came to €80 for a week just for a tent location (nothing else included). When i viewed the price breakdown it seemed like they had charged for two adults when i am just one! Anybody camped here alone for half this price? Or can any other budget campsites be recommended. I would like somewhere preferably quiet, scenic and not too touristic. Thanks :)

      If you have any suggestion, it would be convinient if you enclose links or give me directions to search shops on the internet.

      Chalkidiki - in which town/village to stay, what to do and visit and accommodation-reasonable price

      Prefecture of Chalkidiki Aug 12, 2010 at 2:49 AM

      Hi all VT's

      Please help me with some tips about Chalkidiki. I am going there with friends at the end of September but have absolutely no idea which town might be good to stay. It should be on the beach not inside the penincula. We are looking for reasonable accommodation and are quite flexible - campings, private accommodation, hotels, hostels - everything is all right as far as the price is reasonable.

      What are the biggest attractions except the monasteries. What is Chalkidiki known for and are there green areas?

      Many thanks in advance.

    • Transfer from Thessaloniki to Toroni, Sithonia

      Prefecture of Chalkidiki Mar 10, 2009 at 12:21 PM

      Hey everybody,

      I'm going to spend my holidays in Toroni this year. I'm arriving on Sunday, August 2nd 2009 at the airport in Thessaloniki. I want to go to Toroni by bus, is it right that the bus station of "KTEL Halkidiki" is no longer in the city of Thessaloniki but near the airport now? Does anyone know the address of the bus station? I want to go to the bus station by taxi, how long will it take and how much will it cost? Whether I can find a schedule for the busses to Toroni in summer nor I can find how much this will cost. I guess it will take about 3 hours to get to Toroni, is this right? I hope someone can help me :-)

      Thank you!

      Apartment in Polihrono with AC from May-August

      Im looking to rent a furnished apartment in Polihrono with AC from May 1-August.
      I will have a Medium sized dog with me so it must allow him as I'll be shooting a small film with him while in Halkidiki. My dog is a very well trained show dog from Los Angeles who's appeared in many movies & tv shows so he wont be a problem & he is housebroken. But we must have AC because his breed has issues with heatstroke.

      From Thessaloniki Airport to Chalkidiki, Kassandra

      Prefecture of Chalkidiki Jun 20, 2005 at 1:04 AM

      Hi everyone,

      I have a problem and I hope, someone can give me an advice:
      a friend of mine will go to Greece in July. Her final destination is Chalkidiki, Kassandra, but she will arrive at Thessaloniki Airport. The problem is that she will arrive fairly late (around 11 pm) and the travel agent told her that she will have to hire a car to get into town. I wonder, if that is true, because ususally, airports have their shuttle buses which run until very late.
      Does anyone know, if there are buses going to Chalkidiki around midnight or the early morning hours? Otherwise, my friend would have to hire a car for three days which should cost her around 180 Euro!!! I can't imagine that there is no other option to get into town?!?
