In the southern part of the Kassandra peninsula, half-way between Pefkochori on the East and Loutra on the West, lies the small but charming village of Agia Paraskevi. Surrounded by pine woods, rich with thermal springs and an exceptionally healthy climate. It gets its name after the Agia Paraskevi church which is located in the village. The church was torn down by the Turks three times, the last time being in 1821. Honey, ouzo and tsipouro are all produced here. White houses, garden beds, narrow streets, a village square and a feeling of peace that the entire village radiates with - these are things which will definitely take you back to some different times. In order to reach this village from Pefkochori, you have to follow a winding road which offers a fantastic sea view in some of its parts.
In the centre of the village, there is a small square where the locals often spend their time eating some snacks and drinking ouzo.
When we visit Agia Paraskevi, we usually pay a visit to the local tavern Arhontiki which serves some very delicious food. During the evening hours, this tavern is full of guests, and after 6 p.m. it also offers skewer specialties.
