Nea Artaki is a suburban town, within a distance of 8 kilometers north of Chalkida and 88 kilometers away from Athens. It is located in a plain surrounded by mountains and enumerates more than 10.000 residents. In 1924 refugees from Artaki in Propontida of Asia Minor arrived and settled in the area. From this point onwards the development of the town began and reached its peak in the 60s. However in the years that followed the development pace slowed down, mostly because of the unorganized development of the poultry industry. The efforts for further development of the area began again in the early 90s with the establishment of tourist facilities and the highlighting of the natural beauties of the area, making Nea Artaki a modern tourist resort.
