Pefkohori (Pine Village)

 

Pefkohori is the penultimate village of the first peninsula (100 kilometers from Thessaloniki). You may hear it also as "Kapsochora" since it was burnt down by pirates several times in the past (Kapsochora means <burn land>). At Pefkohori you will be able to have a very pleasant vacation, since it has all comforts that one may need, and almost all requirement stores so you will want for nothing. During you coastal walk you will find bars and cafes, restaurants, ouzo selling bars "ouzeri" and supermarkets. 
Something that distinguishes Pefkohori from all other villages is that is has a very long coastal street, which has the sea and the beautiful sandy beach on one side and all stores on the other. Due to this fact you can walk around, swim and have a coffee at the same time, or eat in one of the many taverns. In the sea road you can find the "MEMORIES" shop that worth to buy from there your Greek souvenirs.
It's worthwhile having a walk at the old center of the village, where you can see the main square with the fountain, and find the traditional "kafenes" (coffee shop) of the village and an English style pub for a drink.
We have to suggest you several places for entertainment, food, and swim. Read carefully our instructions and you will be compensated:

For delicious food we suggest:
- Very tasty "souvlakia", fresh meat dishes and salads, you will find at a restaurant called "COSTA GRILL".
Fresh fish and delicious meals fish based you can find at "TSAPARIS"

For a great swim we suggest:
Straight under the bridge where the ravine passed by, once you reach the beach you will go left if you want to swim with less people around you.
If you have a car we suggest to take the road from Pefkohori to Paliouri and in about 4 khm, you will find a small harbor. Near there you will find a long beach for swimming and sunbathing.
Further down and before Paliouri there are many beaches such as <Kanapitsa> or <Chrusso>, which you can discover by yourselves, following the signs "To the Beach". Drive carefully because most of them are reachable only via dirt roads.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE
It would be advisable not to use a car in the center of the village during weekends, since traffic is heavy. If you want you can rent a bike or motorbike from one of the existent stores.
