Overlooking the Aegean Sea from a lush hillside, the Alexandros Palace, in Halkidiki, is close to the huge, Blue Flag Tripiti Beach, where the sands lead to child-friendly, shallow waves, also popular for snorkelling.
The setting makes it ideal for lovers of nature and heritage, as well as a relaxing getaway for couples, and for a traditional, family seaside holiday.
The rejuvenating spa has a Thai theme, and there are plenty of activities to entertain children, in addition to swimming pools, bars, restaurants, a gym and sports facilities.
Accommodation, featuring flat-screen TVs and mini fridges, ranges from standard, contemporary rooms, sleeping up to five, to luxury suites with living rooms, while some have whirlpool tubs.
The five-star resort is close to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the monasteries of Mount Athos, the ‘Holy Mountain’ of the Orthodox church, best viewed on a boat excursion as access is limited and women are excluded.
