“OLYMPUS THEA” hotel is built on the National Road Thessaloniki-Athens, just before Tempi, outside the coastal village of Platamon, below the homonym castle, in amphitheatric layout, with a panoramic view to the Aegean Sea.
Its near long beach with the clear sea is awarded a blue flag every year. The hotel offers a regular minibus service to the beach during the day (in the summer months).
Beside the hotel, there is the castle of Crusaders, known as the castle of Platamon, with a unique view to the Aegean Sea and the surrounding area, where many cultural events are held.
Above the point where it is built, legendary Olympus rises, the highest and most imposing mountain of Greece. Its name indicates that the mountain touches the bright sky. The ancient Greek mythology was born there, with the 12 Gods and the demigods, while the nine mythical Muses, the ambassadresses of arts, lived on its outskirts. Olympus is the favourite mountain of climbers from all over the world, and it often has snow on its peaks, even in July.
Ancient Dion and the picturesque village of Litochoro are two very notable stations, on the roots of the mountain. At the point where Olympus is separated from its adjacent mountain, Kisavos, where Pinios flows and forms the Tempi valley, many beautiful villages, coastal and mountainous, stone-built and traditional, have the mission of faithful observance of the rules of excellent hospitality, which the father of the Olympian Gods, Xenios Dias (Zeus), bequeathed.
