Beautiful, restored, traditional village on the slopes of Lower Olympus, at an altitude of 700m., With magnificent views of the Thermaikos Gulf and the coasts of southern Pieria.

Maintains uniform architecture of the buildings, which is perceived by the first look and distinguishes it from other settlements.

Standard guesthouses and traditional rooms with breathtaking views are waiting to entertain you. Traditional tavernas serving local food and typical dishes of the region, spicy dishes, local wine and traditional raki from cranberries Olympus.
The path to the village and the surrounding area invites you to enjoy up close the rich forest of chestnut and beech trees, and the rich flora and fauna of the Lower Mt. Ideal location, ideal for nature walks, paragliding, hang gliding, mountain biking and 4x4 routes. In summer worth watching cultural events Olympus International Festival in Castle Platamonas.

In central paved square with plane trees is the old church of St. Panteleimon, the old school which has been restored and traditional taverns. Just outside the village is the only school in the environmental area. In the narrow cobbled streets you can admire the restored stone houses and quaint shops selling local products and handicrafts

It is just 6 km from the village and the beach of Neos Panteleimon where there are also many possibilities for accommodation, dining, entertainment and tourist information. Located 43 km from Katerini.

It has easy access via the National Motorway E75 (node ​​Panteleimonas and Platamonas) and Rail (Station Platamonas).

  6. Dear Olympia - what lovely photos of Mount Olympus, I love being in the mountains and visiting them. Tell me, is your name derived from Olympus? may be that is way you adore the mountains too.

    1. No ,my friend
      Is from Ancient Olympia , the place where the Olympics games done .The Mountain Olympus is the place where the 12 Gods lived .You gave me an idea ! Soon I'll post about these places .

    2. Dearest Olympia - I shall look forward to that - you do have a beautiful name

  7. Eξαιρετική ανάρτηση και όμορφες φωτογραφίες, από ένα πολύ όμορφο και παραδοσιακό χωριό!Προσωπικά δεν το έχω επισκεφθεί, η κόρη μου, όμως έμεινε ενθουσιασμένη και μας έφερε πολύ όμορφες φωτογραφίες.Μήπως θα πρέπει κι εμείς να σχολιάζουμε στα αγγλικά?...αν υπάρχει κάποιος συγκεκριμμένος λόγος γι΄αυτό, να μου πεις.Φιλιά.

  8. Χρόνια που περνάμε απο την εθνική οδό, θέλουμε να σταματήσουμε στον Π.Παντελεήμονα αλλά πάντα είμαστε βιαστικοί. Το φθινόπωρο πρέπει να πάμε μιά βόλτα γιατί είναι όπως είδα στις φωτογραφίες σου ωραίο χωριό.

    πολλά φιλιά

  9. I love this beautiful village in the mountains. The climbing plants over such old buildings are lovely. Your son is a great photographer!

  10. What a lovely village! I really like those terracotta? tiled roofs x Thanks for sharing!

  11. Dearest Olympia,

    That is very informative!
    Lovely area and I'm surprised to read here that Raki is made from cranberries. Always thought it is from the skins of grapes... So do you have cranberries in that region?
    Thanks for your comforting words!
    Hugs to you,

  12. Calling by today from the Green Day meme, what a lovely area, I enjoyed my virtual visit today.

  13. Looks like a wonderful place to visit. I enjoyed my trip to Greece many years ago (except the heat wave we experienced) -- was nice to visit local winemakers in their homes and make a purchase rather than going to the store. Have a good weekend. Tammy

  17. I am happy to have find your blog. I have had a long time dream and wish to visit your country. At least now I can visit here and get my "fix". I adore the land and the food, too. Thanks so much for stopping by. I am now following you. xo

  18. Lovely images and thanks for the tour. It looks like a beautiful place to visit. Greece is one my wish list of places to visit. Have a wonderful weekend.

  19. Καλησπέρα Ολυμπία! Επί τρία χρόνια έκανα διακοπές στην Σκοτίνα! Νέος Παντελεήμων και Πλαταμώνας ήταν τα μέρη για τις μικρές αποδράσεις μας...Απορώ πως μας ξέφυγε ο Παλιός! Φαίνεται πολύ όμορφος τόπος!
    Σε ευχαριστώ για την επίσκεψη και τα όμορφα λόγια.
    Τα μαρτυρικά είναι από πηλό πορσελάνης!
    Καλό βράδυ και ένα ακόμα καλύτερο Σαββατοκύριακο!!

  20. Hello Olympia: I am a new follower. I saw my friend Val's post about the beautiful gift you had sent to her. It was so beautiful and she talked of you so fondly, that I wanted to meet you. I haven't had time to go too far into your blog yet but I'm looking forward to it. I would be honored if you would visit the Cottage. I would love to hear from you..Happy Weekend..Judy

  21. Que lugar maravilhoso! e as imagens são lindas!
    beijos e bom fim de semana

  22. Wow, Olympia! These photos look amazing (talented son as I told you!) and the area seems to be interesting and beautiful! I am always amazed when the sea is so close to the mountains. I still do not understand what "Green Days" means. Can you explain? I might take part too as you have suggested... Happy weekend! Christa

  23. Εκτός από τη σημερινή υπέροχη ανάρτηση..
    χαίρομαι που σε γνωρίζω!
    Καλή σου μέρα!
