About This Listing
Lush green pine trees hanging over white sandy beaches is rare. This is heaven on earth. Sani resort in Halkidiki is one of the most sought after destinations, as it combines luxury, incredible food and the best service with a breathtaking landscape. Sani consists of a luxury resort & private villas and is the closest luxury holiday destination to Thessaloniki (Greece's second largest city), only 45mins from the airport with direct flights internationally.
The villa is set in a beautiful pine forest so it is cool under the shade during the hot summer months and very close to the long stretches of white sandy beaches and turquoise waters that surround the area. There are incredible forest trails by the cliffs next to the emerald sea, and even a bird sanctuary to explore. The resort is stunning, with a marina, lots of shops, bars & restaurants (a bit more here (website hidden)_GB/sani-marina/dining-and-bars), sports and even music festivals during the summer months. It is a particularly child friendly place with warm shallow sea waters. I spent my childhood summers here and these memories really are the best! The villa has access to a swimming pool and play area shared by a small group of villas; it is great fun for kids as they can also make friends and play with other kids too, apart from playing in the comfort of your own private garden too of course. There are regular free shuttle buses that take you from the villa to the resort. Here's more about the resort (website hidden)_GB/concept/the-resort
And here is more about this incredible location (website hidden)_GB/concept/location-and-weather
The villa consists of 3 bedrooms, a double bedroom upstairs (stairs leading up to it), and downstairs on the ground level there is another double bedroom and a single bedroom (but can add 1 more single bed in the bedroom if there are 2 guests for example), 1 bathroom (we offer luxury Anne Semonine products, shower gels, shampoos and soaps), an open plan kitchen, a spacious dining and living room area that leads to the garden. There is a large garden, with an outdoor sheltered area with a table & comfy chairs to enjoy your days and evenings. I love to light candles and enjoy those beautiful starry summer nights!
Someone will meet you at an agreed spot and guide you to the villa. We will show you how everything works in the house and there is further information in the villa. There is also a lady on stand-by to assist you with booking anything from restaurants to boats trips and to answer any questions you may have during your entire trip.
It is fantastic during the winter months too, bit more quiet, great for walks and running in pristine nature and for birdwatching. Also great as a writing retreat and to get away from it all.
It is a luxury villa in a lush paradise! I wish I could stay there all year round but I have to work too... Enjoy!
Please leave the keys and the car badge with the housekeeper when you check out.
Do not drink water from the tap. The water is not drinkable at all in the area, but you may have bottled water instead.
To heat the water, like most houses in Greece, you must turn on the Thermosifonas / Hot Water switch on the board behind the door as you come in. Give it about half an hour at least then switch it off before having a shower.
Please treat the villa as your own house, with love and respect, and other than that, you are on holiday so just enjoy it!
This was a fantastic place to stay for our family holiday. The villa is beautifully positioned in the woods so that you are close to other villas but have your own privacy. We only saw one other family around the pool so had the place to ourselves the rest of the time. The brilliance of this villa though is that it right next to the wonderful Sani Resort so you're every need is covered for great restaurants, cinema, evening entertainment and beautiful beaches. We couldn't have asked for more, especially from our host Athena and the Sani housekeeper, they both made our stay a joy. Great place!!
It was wonderful time for all our family - we enjoyed the beautiful villa inside the green lush forest, birds singing and the clean sea. There is very quite in the area, the garden is shadowy and cosy, perfect for children. You need to rent a car to reach beaches and shops, but you can make it nearby, in Marina. Thank you Sani for great holidays!
I highly recommend Athena's place. Great location, great house, great hostess. We booked the villa for 8 days for a family vacation. The house offers privacy in a beautiful setting, surrounded by pine trees yet it sits very close to Sani resort and benefits from everything the resort has to offer. Athena was a superb hostess, even though we didn't have the chance to meet in person. She was very responsive to any request and really went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. We're definitely coming back.
Hello everybody! We were there in august and it was very nice! For children is great and for adults it's relaxing. The house was amazing. We liked it very much. The area is also great. Atena is very friendly. You can go there and it will be a great holiday!
