Nikiti is located at the entrance of Sithonia peninsula and is one of the major tourist destinations in the area. The place has a history of continuous inhabitation for more than three thousand years. (website hidden), mentions the city of Galepsus in between Torone and Sermyle. Modern archaeological evidence suggests that Galepsus was probably located in between Castri cape and Agios Ioannis (Ai-Yiannis) beach, about 2.5 km from Nikiti. Later, during the Roman and early Byzantine periods, there was a lively settlement in Agios Georgios area on Nikiti beach. an early christian basilica, one of the oldest and most important found in Northern Greece, is what is left from this settlement.
The first written evidence about the name “Nikiti” is found in the archives of Xenophon monastery in Mt. Athos, early 14th century AD. The archives mention the land of “Neakitou” from which “Nikiti” is believed to have derived. After the fall of the Byzantine Empire in 1453, the area was conquered by the Ottomans until 1912 when Halkidiki joined the Greek state after a successful war against the Turks.
Today, Nikiti is a thriving town and local economy is mainly based on tourism and beekeeping, a traditional activity that dates back to the Byzantine times. The main attractions are the traditional village, the ancient Basilica of Sofronios, the church of Agios Nikitas and of course the beautiful beaches around Nikiti.
The town of Nikiti offers a variety of restaurants, tavernas, gyros places, large supermarkets (Masoutis & Lidl) or local grocery and butcher stores, banks, ATMs, pharmacies-drug stores, and numerous other shops for beach apparel and accessories, souvenirs, bicycle rental etc. The main health centre of this peninsula is in Agios Nikolaos, only 11km away.
Enjoy your stay at our house and in Halkidiki in general.

Welcome to our summer house in Nikiti, Sithonia.
These are some common sense rules and in general please make sure you leave the place as you found it.
I will kindly ask you to:
- take out your rubbish (there is a rubbish bin further down on the main street),
- wash your dishes, glasses, cutlery etc.
- leave all used towels and linens on the floor by your check-out
- there is broom, brush, hoover and a bucket available for you to clean up (this is the reason we do not charge cleaning fees yet)
- refrain from smoking indoors, particularly in bedrooms. As smokers cannot always respect this, at least make sure you air very well the room after smoking. Following guests will appreciate this too!
- respect my neighbours and not make a party after midnight.
That's it more or less. Enjoy your stay in Halkidiki and you may contact us logical hours for tips! Feel free for inquiries regarding your travel arrangements.

We loved the Nikolas house, he was very hospitable. Would still go back to Nikiti and certainly the Nikolas house. Thank you very much for the warm welcome!
Hi Katy and thank you for reviewing your stay at Tina's maisonette in Nikiti.
It's nice that you all enjoyed it here, the two mothers with children and your parents as well. Nikiti is indeed the ideal family destination all over Halkidiki.
We would gladly host you next year again and you are always welcome at our apartments in Thessaloniki as well.
Best wishes for a nice winter season!
We had a great three weeks in the house Nikolas very caring and helpful owner, organized a Shuttle from the airport and aeropostal us water and some food on the first day of stay in a house story of what beaches and restaurants is better to visit.
The house is just wonderful is located near the sea in a picturesque part Nikiti the evening it is quiet and calm, which is very important when traveling with children.
We plan next year to come to this house again with their grandparents.
Nikolas and his sister Ina were great hosts, very communicative and positive.
They provided us with a baby cod fre of service and even bought for us a baby eating chair so that was a nice touch.
The house was great, clean, amazing location, quiet and filled with all the amenities necessary.
Would recommend it to anyone.
Great place and great hosts! the house is really wonderful. it is very tastefully furnished. you can look at the breakfast to the sea and tina & nicolas have provided fresh bread and something to eat for the first days. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need. We had wonderful days in nikiti and can only recommend it
Everything OK. The host left some food for the first days and the house is completely equipped (everything you need is there). Internet was not working at the time, but they offered the WLAN of the neighbours (I did not needed it but he offered it).
The house is in a good place, very near to the beach and in a quiet place (not bars or restaurants near, 5 min walk) so no annoying noise in the evenings.
The beach in front of the house is good, a family beach ideal for children (you have to walk a lot to let the water cover you) and the water crystal clear. Because Nikiti is at the end of the bay between Kassandra and Sithonia the sea water is very salty (in case someone has problem with this this), we had no problem with that.
Nikolas summer house in Nikiti is good equipped, comfortable, and well located. Own garden with shower and a grill is something we used with the kids every day, and made us lots of pleasure. Best is if you are with a car, than you can access other beaches on the peninsula.
Hosts are very gentle, house in Nikiti nicely decorated, and very clean. Nicolas left food and drink for couple of days which is very nice. A beach is just across the street which can be useful but it's not the most beautiful beach on Sithonia. We were using our car a lot to discover Sithonia and it's hidden beaches...

About the Host, Nikolas
Being an engineer of urban planning and regional development, as well as a graduate of real estate management & economics, academically I was intrigued in interfering with the property market. However, the virus came in after many years of travelling and experiencing hospitality from every possible angle, guest, host, couch surfer, hotel booker, hostel crasher, guide etc.
The past few years, I have been managing along with my sister a plethora of properties, from city apartment and beachfront house in Halkidiki, to a luxurious pool villa in Mykonos. Still though our main aim is to make guests feel like home and this is the reason we try to provide a friendly approach with custom tips for every single location of our properties. Efficient customer service & supreme guests' satisfaction is the ultimate objective, particularly when it's your holidays time.
I love adopting practices, services and methods experienced in person, while travelling around the world and you are always welcome to provide us with your feedback.
Enjoy your stay in our hometown Thessaloniki, in infamous Mykonos or in Halkidiki (the hidden treasure of Northern Greece) or in magical 4-season mountain of Pelion.
Relax and live your myth in magical Greece!!!
Nikolas & Tina
