Cool and cozy will offers you a pleasant leisure time among the nature and fresh air with great views to Sithonia peninsula.
You’ll love this place because of the ambiance, the outdoors space, the neighborhood, and the light. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families with kids.
Only 5 km away from Neos Marmaras to an altitude of 350 m, you will find the traditional village Parthenonas..
The name Parthenonas is mentioned in documents from 10th century but there is no much information about the village itself and its role in the past.
In 1970 the site was rediscovered and called
The abandoned village of Sithonia since only abandoned and ruined houses were found in it (some of them still can be seen).
Neos Marmaras is situated on the second leg of Halkidiki, Sithonia, which is just 120 km away from Thessaloniki. Mounted on five hills, N. Marmaras reminds you of an island.
After a two year wandering around Greece, the refugees of the island of Marmara settled in a place which brought back to their minds vivid memories of their once lost homeland; that was the Byzantine settlement “Balabani’ which was renamed N. Marmaras.
In a few decades they managed to turn the inhospitable, yet charming nature into a picturesque outport and, later on, into a top- ranking destination for tourists triggering a strong desire for advancement and development and thus making Marmara one of the highest class resorts in Northern Greece. Up to 1970 the local people of the nearby mountainous village called Parthenonas had settled as well. That was the time when a great dreamer, John Carras, completed his enterprising dream creating one of the most outstanding hotel units in Greece: Porto Carras.
