Afitos Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 40 photos

Afitos is the best perserved typical macedonian-greek village on Kassandra peninsula of Chalkidiki. At the second half of the 19th century it developed its characteristics building style which is seen in the houses of the village. Most houses are made of stone and show the zeal of the builders. If you are on vacation anywhere on Kassandra... don't miss to visit this village and feel real Greek charm. Greece is not only blue sea, great beaches, sun, ouzo and ancient history... it's much more than that!

You are urged to walk through the village and to see the architectural details of the old houses that still remain.

We spent only one day there but would like to get there again. We really had great day,... collecting shells on the beach, enjoying in warm september sea and sun, drinking Greek coffie in tavern... njoying in life!
