“Some people were born to drive, while others were born to be driven” – this used to be my well-worn mantra until I passed my driving test after three painful attempts. I still subscribe to this theory and have always fantasised about being chauffeur driven. If you are anything like me and foster delusions of grandeur, you will appreciate Sani Resort’s complimentary two-hour chauffeur driven private tour of Greece’s beautiful Kassandra Peninsula.

The award-winning Sani Resort in Halkidiki has formed a collaboration with Volvo to offer guests at its newest, luxury hotel, Sani Dunes, an off the beaten track adventure which will take in the beautiful scenery of the striking aforementioned Kassandra Peninsula.

Guests will be met at Sani Dunes by their chauffeur driven luxury Volvo saloon before being whisked down forest tracks, through olive groves and along dramatic cliff top routes. A highlight of the trip is a stop at the tip of Cape Posidi where guests are treated to magnificent views of the Aegean and Mount Olympus accompanied by a chilled glass of sparkling wine.

Sani Dunes is scheduled to open at the end of June and will boast a luxurious spa; private beach; three restaurants; bar; and both indoor and outdoor heated pools. The 136-room hotel is synonymous with comfort and luxury; furthermore, guests can easily access the buzzing boutiques and restaurants of Sani Marina all in close proximity.Sani Marina - Couple dining at Waterfront Restaurant, Kassandra Peninsula.

Five –star luxury, fabulous views and a chauffeur driven private tour – roll on the end of June.
