If you're looking for the perfect combination of luxury, relaxation and gastronomic delights, then look no further – we have the answer – the upcoming Sani Gourmet Festival from 8th to 17th May.
Sani Resort is a gorgeous eco-friendly cluster of hotels, apartments and villages spanning over 1000 acres, set around a central marina and fringed with golden beaches. Located on the Halkidiki peninsula, one hour from Thessaloniki airport, Sani has all the best Greece has to offer on one's own doorstep. 5 star service and every convenience, means you never need to leave.
There are four main types of accommodation from the Beach Hotel to boutique suites and an array of indoor and outdoor pools, beaches, a wonderful spa, a crèche, kids’ and teenagers’ clubs, an outdoor cinema and ample sports facilities. Add to this 16 restaurants (yep, you read that right) – from classic beachside tavernas under stripey blue awnings to Byblos Caviar, Greece’s only caviar restaurant – Sani offer a half board dine around programme meaning you can eat at a different restaurant every night. Then blow away the hangover with a day trip on Sani’s glamourous speedboat, the Sani Queen, where you can tuck into a prepared picnic and watch dolphins frolic around the bays.
For real foodies May will see Sani’s 10th Gourmet Festival, where the finest chefs and rising stars from Greece and from around the globe descend on Sani for a celebration of food and wine based on the Silk Road – the journey from Beijing to Rome. Expect dishes from Iran, China, India through Georgia and Azerbaijan, to more local menus from Greece, Turkey and Italy.
Last year we sampled cod tiramisu, truffled carbonara, curried sea bass and black tsatskiki, washed down with delicious wines and the occasional cocktail. Not only can you can sample lavish menus, presentations and wine tastings, but you can also meet the chefs making it a once in a lifetie experience. And with it all on your doorstep, what more could you ask for?
