When visiting Thessaloniki, my fiance and I were invited to stay with some friends of the family in their beautiful home. It's high-rise of condos, but theirs was on the ground floor with access to this gorgeous yard and garden. Every day it was our private getaway to relax in between touring Thessaloniki.
I hope one day to own a home with a yard that I can build my own garden like this one.
Kalamaria by the way is interesting as it is a suburb of Thessaloniki, but it doesn't feel like any suburb as we know in the US. It felt like a major city, but it also has a beautiful waterfront of places to go. You might want to think about getting a hotel here as opposed to Thessaloniki if you visit the region.
