Ah yes, but if you were here longer like us you would have had super hot dry weather with no rain right from end of May til then ! Whereas in England you would probably have got drowned most of the time. You never can tell..... October may yet be very nice, shame we are leaving early Oct.

I'm a regular on this site and I have always found your tips great!

I'm arriving on Monday, does the weather look like its improving? it seems to be from what I can tell on various weather sites but I thought that seeing as you are there you would be a good person to ask!

Hi Lisa. Well the weather forecast for Kassandra says it is improving from Monday, but to be honest they seem to change it every few hours ! I must say in the many years we have been in Halkidiki, and talking to some locals in Skioni today, this is the first time that the weather has been continuously cloudy cold and raining. Usually at this time of year you can expect a day or so sometimes where it rains or is slightly cooler.

We have had a great summer here, no rain (apart from the odd overnight shower) since end May til mid Sept. Early September was really nice and we had high hopes as we leave on 4 October.
Hopefully this is just a blip and after just over two weeks it should start to improve.

When the sun comes out although it is only around 22 deg C it is still very warm and nice as it has not been too windy. The sea is quite cold though, I know as I have to at least paddle each day with my dog ! I have given up thoughts of having a swim before we leave, whereas last year we were in the sea 5 Oct for the last time and it was nice.

So all I can say is good luck, and I am crossing my fingers too for a good week.

It would have been brilliant!. Loved the apartments and Sakis his sister and mother and their beautiful baby girl.
We may be going to Thessoniki(Is that how its spelt?) For a wedding next year. But thats the end of Sept.
Hope the people this week has had a few rays of sunshine!

Thanks holey,

I'm off there tomorrow, and if the weather forecast is right we will at least get to see some sun!

Its such a beautiful area that I would hate to think that the bad weather had put you off, it certainly doesn't usually rain like it has for you!
