Evenings of live music and dancing bring an authentic flavour of Greek culture to summer at the Anna Maria Paradise Hotel, in Pefkohori, Halkidiki. Perfect for a Greek island holiday.
Performers in costume entertain guests at the traditional events, with a sizzling barbecue adding to the enjoyment, while more music nights, with a band or DJ, are hosted during the season.
Set amid lush gardens and palm trees, and just a few steps from the glorious beach and the nightlife of Pefkohori, the Anna Maria, renovated and modernised, is truly a Halkidiki holiday paradise for couples and families alike.
There is a bistro serving snacks, and free sun loungers and umbrellas, at the swimming pool, while children have their own pool to play in.
There is a choice for diners enjoying the breakfast and dinner buffets, between the Veranda Restaurant, in a beautiful area with views over the swimming pool and the well-maintained hotel gardens, and the Dolphins Pool Bar.
For those wanting to explore further, the hotel has a boat and motorbike rentals desk, and, as on so many of the Greek islands, the area has plenty to tempt watersports enthusiasts, with chances to waterski, parasail and scuba dive as well as to join in family fun with banana rides, ringos and pedaloes.
The hotel’s helpful staff can also suggest tailor-made excursions to the three peninsulas which make up the Halkidiki region, Kassandra, Sithonia and Athos - along the coast, through forest glades to traditional communities, and to 1165m Mount Holomontas, a wildlife haven with trees traditionally cut for shipbuilding timber.
