Nea Skioni Real Estate | Nea Skioni Villas
Nea Skioni is situated at the southwest end of Kassandra’s peninsula at a distance of almost 110km from Thessaloniki. It forms a traditional Greek village, built at an enchanting landscape of rare natural beauty, where the visitor has the chance to combine both swimming and taking a walk in a pine clad forest.
According to Thucydides, Skioni was built by the Pelleneans from Peloponnese on their way back from the war of Troy. Later on the Athenians brought the Plataeans to live here. The mountainous village of Tsaprani forms the forerunner of today’s village of Skioni. The residents of Tsaprani gradually populated the sea area during the second decade of our century. From the old village of Tsaprani, we have today the Church of the Holy Trinity, in which a feast with impressive attendance and dedication to the tradition takes place annually. Apart from the impressive natural beauty of this village, the Church of Virgin Mary Phaneromeni is worth visiting. The Church is built at a distance of 2km from the village, decorated with wall paintings, dating back to the 16th century. In 1881, this church was allotted by the monastery of Flamourio of Thessaly to the Patriarchate and celebrates each year on the 23rd of August with excessive solemnity and the attendance of a large number of people.
The village’s harbour is one of the largest in the Peninsula, where loads of fishing boats from the Gulf of Thermaikos, even from North Sporades, moor here. A walk at the port will surely end up with a nice meal in one of the village’s fish houses, undoubtedly a tempting proposal to every guest. In Nea Skioni there are numerous hotel units and rooms to let, taverns with fresh fishes, stores with all kinds of souvenirs, super markets and taxis. There is also a drug store and harbour service (customs). A unique place for you to enjoy vacations of recreation and relaxation.
