The foundation of the village starts before 650 BC by the Eretrians who had settled at that time on the peninsula of Kassandra. and gave it the name “Neapolis”. This name remained until 540 A.D. when it was completely destroyed by the Hun raids. In the 11th century, farmers gathered in this area and in time the village was given the name ‘Polychrono’ because of the many flowers that were there. A few centuries later, during the Greek revolution against Turkish rule in 1821, the area was burnt and completely destroyed for the second time in its history. A few years later some of the few survivors rebuilt the village, which over the years took the name that is still used today “Polychrono”.

Hanioti, or Haniotis as it is still called, got its name according to tradition from the first inhabitant of the village, who came from Chania in Crete. Most probably the foundation of the village took place at the end of the 1st century.
