Greek Hotel Readies to Host Oscar-Nominated Celebrities



A luxury hotel in Halkidiki, northern Greece, has been selected to host Oscar nominees for an unforgettable weeklong holiday next to the Aegean blue sea.

A stay at Greece’s Avaton Luxury Villas Resort is included in this year’s swag bags for Academy Award presenters and performers. Items in the famous bags, which are given out to Oscar nominees and presenters, include ultra-luxe accommodations packages as well as personal training sessions and jewelry.

Apart from the Halkidiki stay, celebrities also have a choice of a trip to the Amazon, the Galapagos Islands, Iceland or Costa Rica.

Overlooking Komitsa Bay on the Athos Peninsula, the award-winning “Avaton Luxury Villas Resort – Relais & Chateaux” offers seafront accommodations with Mediterranean gardens. A private beach area is also available. The nearest town, Ouranoupoli, is 5 km (three miles) away.

All sixteen units of the Avaton are air conditioned and have a flat-screen TV with satellite channels. Most units include a dining area and/or terrace, while some come with their own private pools.
