The central and northern parts of Halkidiki are dominated by the mountain range of Mt. Holomontas, an area of incredible beauty, with breathtaking views in all directions. In ancient times Holomontas was known for the quality of its timber, much prized by shipbuilders. Imposing trees grow high up on its slopes, with oaks on the lower reaches, and chestnut, pine, fir and beech higher up. Every so often the trees make way for a clearing, blossoming later on with wild flowers. Mushrooms are found here, growing alongside wild herbs, mountain tea and oregano. There are also many species of wild animals and birds. (Highest peak: 1165 m). Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.
