If you want to escape from everything and everybody, if you want to hide from the world, Elatochori – very appropriate place for this! This village is located in Northern Greece, on Paralia near Katerini, among Pierian mountains, where according to legend were frolicking all muse.There are great hotels, most of them – finished with a stone, with sauna, Jacuzzi and fireplace. We just could not believe that among the forests and mountains can be a luxury! From Thessaloniki you can get here in 2 hours by car, rent it (if you want) at the airport, but do not look for road signs with the words “Elatochori” better get a pre-detailed instructions from the owners of the hotel where you decide to stay, and use your card.
It turned out Elatochori – quite an attractive place not only in autumn and winter, but also in the summer. Especially if the summer is unbearably hot, and you decide to go on vacation at the last moment, when almost all the hotels near the coast have already been sold.
The beauty is that you can live in the mountains, enjoying outdoor activities; also you can go on the sea. And then to the sauna and then fall apart in the Jacuzzi!
