Under Olympus by beautiful, blue sea

Updated on October 3, 2017

Beautiful Greek sea-Nei Pori

Olympian Riviera in Greece

Under Mountain Olympus , a magic mountain which is the home of Twelve Olympian Gods, according to Greek mythology, by beautiful, blue sea, there is an amazing Olympian Riviera in the North of Greece. It is unique for many reasons: beautiful, romantic beaches and places, clear transparent sea, legendary mountain Olympus, great nature, agreable climate, comfortable hotels and apartments, restaurants with national specialities and amazing air.

The combination of pure air and chrystal-clear sea is exceptional for health, especially for respiratory system.

Nowhere, I didn't see and feel this amazing combination. Walking by the clear sea and breathing fresh air, which comes from magic Mountain Olympus and at the same time, breathing drops of sea aerosol is an unforgettable experience and a great benefit for the health. Because of these facts this region is convenient for doing sports, fitness and training.

Greek Olympian Riviera has a very good climate. Obviously, this climate was created in the will of Gods.

Olympus was not shaken by wind, nor ever wet with rain, nor did snow fall upon it, but the air is incredible, pure as a tear,outspread and cloudless.

Olympian Riviera is a right choice for anybody who wants to take a break from the busy, stressful town life.

It is a place for a total recovery of the organism, for " charging the batteries".

Places of Olympian Riviera


There are a lot of nice places, villages and cities of Olympian Riviera.

In my opinion, the most beautiful places are Nei Pori, Platamonas, Olympic Beach and Paralia, where there is a big choice for accommodation. You can choose cheaper variant if you hire nice suites-apartments in Greek villas or you can choose luxurious hotels.

Each apartment in Greek villas is equipped with its kitchen, bath, wardrobe, table, chairs, TV, air conditioning, suitable dishes and terrace with amazing views. After you have all conditions for cooking and your creativity, you can prepare your meals in well-equipped kitchens with fridges where you can put your food. These villas have their own solar system of heating and you always have warm water in your apartment. To my mind, this fact is very important and you can have shower when you want it.

The places of Olympian Riviera are peaceful and romantic, with romantic restaurants with traditional Greek music and beautiful gardens full of flowers. Also, there are a lot of open markets , where you can buy fresh healthy vegetables and fruit without GMO FOOD,with the flavour capturing from the Sun of the South and beautiful Mediterranean.
