Metagkitsi is a nice quiet village with a few restaurants, local mini supermarket and pharmacy. The nearest cash point is 15min drive at Agios Nikolaos so best to bring Euros with you.
Its a 5 minute drive to a pebble beach called Assa Maris Bomo Club on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps. Nice place for a quick swim. We also drove to a sandy beach at Neos Marmaras. Good place to try out snorkelling with a few very little fish to look at in the shallow water. Lots of very fresh and tasy grilled fish in the local restaurants. You can buy flippers, flip flops, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)s etc pretty cheaply at most places. There is a small shop near to the apartment at Pyrgadikia.
The apartment is very clean, easy to use and comfortable. There is a nice small garden at the back and terrace. Wifi worked well and we could catch up on the UK Election news.
Eleni's parents are next door and were very helpful with anything we asked for. I used the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translator, English to Greek and it got me a long way in the town, making short conversations.
If you want somewhere quiet, romantic and not too far from the rest of Halkidiki this is the place for you.
