Chalkida: the town of “mad waters”

There is a reference point, a place of attraction for Athenians and people from Central Greece, none other than beautiful Chalkida, the capital town of Evia, aka the “weekend island”! It could very well be seen as a suburb in the outskirts of Athens as a 45 minute drive – past the impressive High Bridge – will get you there. Have a coffee break by the seafront – a favourite place among the young – and enjoy the view of Evripos straits.

Adopt Aristotle’s motto: “The energy of the mind is the essence of life”.

Thermal and mineral natural therapeutic springs are appearing at 850 places all over Greece. Their beneficial action offers you the opportunity to receive treatment for chronic conditions in a natural way; whereas the healing properties of seawater, seaweed, or sea mud help you conquer stress and anxiety, and improve your mental performance.

Evia or sometimes found as “Euboia”, is the second largest island of Greece and the third in the eastern Mediterranean, is located close to Athens, the Prefecture of Attica.
