Halkidiki is a region in northern Greece known for its jutting peninsulas, which feature Mediterranean forests that give way to sandy beaches in sheltered bays.
A glorious getaway focused on relaxation, luxury excursions and fine dining in Halkidiki is Eagles Villas, just a short ride from Thessaloniki airport. Arrive to the picturesque crystal clear blue waters of Ouranoupolis at this design-led development consisting of 42 exclusive villas.
With a paramount focus on well-being, all villas here have been created following the faithful, age-old rules of feng shui — expect stylish, light and airy with large central beds and sliding French windows onto private terraces.
I strongly suggest that you embark on Captain Pâvlos’ luxury speed boat, you will be whisked to Drenia island, surrounded by crystal, clear Aegean waters which gently kiss the sandy shore. After some time here, snorkeling, sunbathing and sipping on champagne, you see more of the untouched lands including the private beach of Ammouliani. At this little-known heavenly alcove, tiny fish swim at your feet and the champagne keeps flowing into the sunset.
In terms of cuisine, Eagles Villas boast Michelin star chefs that have been carefully headhunted from around the world to present you with only the freshest, organic ingredients.
