Starting just before the village of Sirikari in the lush, green hills, we follow the small dirt road up through olive groves. The path then leads us up through chestnut and wild strawberry (arbutus) trees and offers us beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.
Up and over the hill, we then head down into the lush green valley and Milia Eco Retreat, in a unique tranquil setting, where we can sample local mountain tea. After a short break, we follow the path that leads us past the little chapel of St. George and through the valley towards the picturesque village of Kalathenes, where our walk ends and the local taverna awaits us for lunch! Venetian architecture is dominant in this village and numerous houses of that era are still standing, inviting us to take a closer look!
