The fishing harbour of Olympiada, Halkidiki, Macedonia, Greece at My Favourite Planet

Accommodation in Olympiada
Olympiada has two small, excellent family-run hotels, as well as rented rooms and apartments, a handful of cafes, restaurants and shops.

We have personally visited both the hotels and can recommend them whole-heartedly.

Hotel Germany is on the main street in the centre of the village, and has its own restaurant with a beachside terrace. There are rooms with balconies facing the sea with excellent views across the Strymonic Gulf, to the island of Kafkanas (Kapros) and the Liotopi peninsula, site of Aristotle's hometown Stageira. The en-suite rooms are clean and simply furnished. The staff are very friendly. As you can guess from the name, German is spoken here as well as English.

Hotel Liotopi is 150 metres further south, on the right side of the main street. The large old house, set in its own garden, also has rooms with balconies facing the sea. The decor in Liotopi is more creative, with each room designed in a different style and colour theme. Charming and romantic. It is also clean, comfortable and friendly. It even has a reading corner, where guests are free to take or leave books as they wish.

In the lobby of Hotel Liotopi you can also buy a range of local natural products, such as wine and preserves.

Both hotels offer breakfast in the price. Half-board rates (bed, breakfast and evening meal) are also available. All rooms have a balcony, bathroom with shower, fridge, TV and wi-fi.

Be sure to ask for the booklet guide to Ancient Stageira.

One of the owners, Dimitris Sarris, who is also an architect and speaks German and English, is a fund of information about the area and the site of Ancient Stageira.
 
Don't go to the wrong Stageira!
Ancient Stageira at Olympiada should not be confused with the modern village of Stageira, which is 25 km further south, and has no historical connection with Aristotle.

Many travel guides confuse the two places, a confusion made worse by the fact that the modern Stageira has an "Aristotle Park" with a modern statue of the ancient philosopher similar to that in Olympiada.

Modern Stageira, near Stratoniki and Stratoni, may be a nice place, but if you are travelling by bus and end up there, you may find it difficult to get from there to Olympiada. There is no bus connection between Stratoni and Olympiada.
