The Enchanting Beauty of Athitos

The stone-paved alleys in Athitos will steal your heart
Athitos (or Afitos) is a small village in Kassandra and dates back to the 1st c. AD. What visitors see today is a traditional Greek village with a long historical heritage and great architecture sprinkled with the luring convenience of modernity.
The small alleys are swamped with restaurants, ranging from traditional to luxurious, cafes & bars, but also lead to the focal point of the village, the church of Agios Dimitrios.
What makes Athitos unique is the way it is built. It spreads on a rock, stands out for its steep slopes, and its main road leads to the seaside. The waters are clear, the beach is kid-friendly, the presence of beach bars makes the life of the visitors easier, and the distinguished aroma of the flowers which grow by the sea will stay with you forever.
The panoramic view of Toroneos Bay is breathtaking
There’s a large number of shops and places where you can eat, drink, or just sit and enjoy the incredible view over the cliff. It’s no wonder why Athitos is swamped with people. Visitors like to walk the stone-paved streets, enjoy the great Greek food, visit the church with the basilica that dates back to 1858, admire the houses of musician Mandakas & painter Paralis, or go to the folklore museum.
If you are staying at Hotel Kriopigi, it will only take you minutes to get to Athitos by car. Who wouldn’t relax just by gazing at the Toroneos Bay in a natural environment beyond belief!
