Porto Carras’s New Owners Renovate And Expand Unit
Plans for an extensive renovation of the Porto Carras complex in Halkidiki, northern Greece, will proceed despite an outstanding legal decision concerning management of the unit’s casino. One of the new owners of the complex, Greek construction company Techniki Olympiaki, recently announced their business plan, which it hopes to be completed by March 2002.
The company said its main aim is to attract clientele of eclectic tastes and to lengthen the tourist season in the area from the present four months to eight months. Porto Carras’ business plan covers a 1,800-hectare property in the Marmara area of Halkidiki and will include the renovation of existing accommodation, the winery, golf course and marina. A total of 3,500 bungalows will be built while a conference center that caters to 2,000 and a thalassotherapy facility have been planned.
