Venue of the WYCC 2010

The luxury Porto Carras Grand Resort is situated in an enchantingly verdant landscape in Halkidiki, Northern Greece. Set like a gem in 1763(!) hectares (17 million sq. m.) of incredibly beautiful grounds, it is a paradise of green, fringed by seemingly endless sandy beaches, in fact 9 kilometres of them, punctuated by more than 25 little coves where the pine trees sweep right down to the water’s edge.

Located 110 km (75 minutes drive) south of the international airport of Thessaloniki, the Porto Carras Grand Resort includes in its 1763 hectares three hotel divisions, each in a different style, a casino, an ultra-modern thalassotherapy centre and spa, an international-standard 18-hole golf course, a private 315-berth marina, a 5000 seat convention centre and Greece’s largest organic vineyard.
