Location

Traveling to Afitis Boutique Hotel is an easy trip from Thessaloniki’s Makedonia Airport. The route is well-signposted to the peninsula of Kassandra. From there, the narrow windy roads will take you past the village of Afitos and then down the beach, where you will discover this little boutique hotel.

A short walk from the hotel and up several steps is the well-preserved village of Afitos. Its unique architecture, rich ancient history, traditional shops, and delightful tavernas are fun and lively in the evenings.

Style & Character

The hotel nestles by a golden sandy beach in the Toroneos Gulf below a backdrop of lush greenery. On the beach, the crystal clear waters lap. On the horizon, distant green fingers of land trail out into the blue Aegean Sea. Welcome to one of the most perfect and unspoiled areas in Greece!

The recently refurbished boutique hotel is both cozy and chic. The modern building spills onto lawned gardens packed with palms and a spectacular decked pool area before dropping down the picture-perfect beach. Superb art and antiques can be found dotted around the property and sit elegantly within the public spaces, a mix of warm creams and natural stonework and tiles.

Rooms

The modern guest rooms are an absolute treat, meticulously decorated with a huge comfy bed, a decent-sized balcony, and all the amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel. Rooms face the beautiful gardens or the sea. Seaview rooms have particularly lovely views of the pool area and across the palm trees. Suites offer “Boconcept” furnishings and marble bathrooms with Jacuzzi cabins.

Service & Facilities

For something different, a short walk from the hotel takes you to several local restaurants, including Sparos, which offers excellent mezes and seafood.

The “Essence” beauty salon offers spa and treatment facilities that are a must for a chilled vacation. Delight in an indulgent, soothing massage either outdoors or in the pampering atmosphere of the Essence suite at the Afitis.

The private beach is lovely, equipped with sun loungers, parasols, and beachside service. As with much of Greece, the beach is rocky in places, but the plus side is that the water is crystal clear and immaculately clean. This private beach is ideal for peaceful days, and there are two glorious outdoor pools for a change of scene – the pictures say it all.

Expect extraordinary hospitality from an impeccable and talented staff. Friendliness is genuine, from top to bottom, from management to cleaning staff.

Other fun excursions in the area are drives through mountains, forests, vineyards, gardens, and fruit fields. A visit to the capital of Halkidiki with its rich cultural and historical heritage and cosmopolitan café life, or you can tour the local wineries.

Food & Drink

Tasty buffet breakfasts and tantalizing evening dining featuring fresh local organic ingredients are available at the poolside Daphne restaurant. Those needing replenishment during the day can visit.

The Bar by the pool for a healthy snack or a full gastronomic experience. For fresh, delightful seafood, the elegant Mesogeios a la carte restaurant by the sea is the perfect setting for romantic candlelit dining, with local food accompanied by piano, violin, and accordion to set the scene. Fiesta nights with Jazz themes take place across the summer, which is the perfect end to an evening.

Conclusion

Let the waves tickle your toes while you relax under a parasol on the beach. Listen to the waves as the warm Aegean breeze ruffles the palms above. Isn’t this what a holiday is all about? After Boutique Hotel is an absolute gem. It is so delightful that you are unlikely to want to share it with your friends for fear of spoiling such a perfect idyll.
