Cavo Olympo is a quiet and relaxing adults-only retreat on the Aegean Sea. A private cove in Litochoro is the it spot for guests wanting a private escape.
Surrounded by the deep blue Aegean Sea and the white snowy peaks of Mount Olympus, the Cavo Olympo feels like something the ancient Greek gods would have thought up.
The contemporary 49-room boutique hotel is nestled within centuries-old olive trees and immerses guests into the natural serenity of Greece’s Macedonian region. Neutral rooms are bright and airy with spectacular views of the water. Private terraces and balconies are the perfect place to sip on a glass of Greek wine. Swanky marble en-suite bathrooms with relaxing rain showers add to the posh interior.
Private pool suites are luxurious little havens with sunbeds, parasols, and outdoor furnishings tucked away for a romantic experience.
Through the lobby, an inviting walkway flanked by manicured green hedges, manicured lawns, and white umbrellas beckons you toward the sea like a mermaid’s call. Guests can choose from three pools that seamlessly meet the Aegean. A few steps beyond, a pebble beach meets the soft surf.
Lounging is your only agenda item at Cavo Olympo. Chill on the outdoor deck of Nero restaurant and take a taste of their contemporary Greek and Mediterranean dishes. Tantalize taste buds with local specialties like truffles, mushrooms, and pork, all paired with wine brought in from nearby vineyards.
Fresh ingredients can be found in the spa too, refreshing bodies and spirits. Greek olive oils, grains, and herbs plucked from Mount Olympus remove dull skill with a scrub.
An hour away from buzzing Thessaloniki, the Cavo Olympo offers a relaxing alternative. From here, explore the nearby Dion archaeological site and the museum housing amazing mosaics and marble statutes dug up after being hidden in the ground for centuries. Hike through the shaded forests of Mount Olympus, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, mentioned in Homer’s Iliad. Pieria is attractive to travelers interested in the mythical charm of Mount Olympus, the seat of the ancient Greek gods, local delicacies, a traditional way of life, and deep-rooted history.
