The traditional village of Parthenonas is situated at Sithonia of Halkidiki, surrounded by a fantastic “green” scenery of olive and pine trees. Its distance from the major city of Thessaloniki is 122 km, while the distance from Thessalonikis International Airport “Makedonia” is around 107 km. This distance is covered in around an hour and fifteen minutes by car, or in around two hours by bus. Parthenonas is also only 5km away from the cosmopolitan town of Neos Marmaras, 25km from Nikiti (the capital of Sithonia Municipality), and around 30km from the old and beautiful village of Agios Nikolaos and the area of Vourvourou.
Other villages that are situated in a close distance from Parthenonas, and they are worth visiting are: Ormos Panagias, Porto Koufo, Sarti, Sykia, Armenistis, the area of Zografou, as well as tens of other exotic beaches around Sithonia, that we have all at least once dreamt of! After all, the visitor should keep in mind that Halkidiki has had the last years, the most “Blue Flag” awarded beaches from the European Union, than any other area in Greece! Most of the villages that we mentioned earlier are touristic areas, that can offer to the visitor a variety of activities to do, while visiting.
Coming back to Parthenonas now… its altitude is around 350 meters from the sea level, while some of the last houses of the village are situated at 380-390 meters. The specific altitude of Parthenonas is an advantage itself for various reasons, such as the fantastic view that it offers towards Kassandra (the first peninsula of Halkidiki) and Toroneos Gulf, while at the same time, the area enjoys a fantastic climate. Cool nights during the summer, and also snowfalls during the winter time that make the scenery magical, are two of the major characteristics of this area! Parthenonas and the surrounding area is full of olive groves, out of which the well known and multi awarded, virgin olive oil of Halkidiki is being produced, and exported to almost all over the world.
