deserted village-walkable from Livadia and can be combined into a round trip to Lethra beach. Interesting- no signaposts etc in village and could not find high-level path marked on map down to Elephant cave area

We never got around to seeing the village during the day, but ended up going twice at night for drinks. The setting with the lit up houses at night is eerie and the view of the night sky is amazing. It's worth going just for...More

We felt a magical attraction to this place, could almost feel the souls who lived here and abandoned this place. We visited at day time but also at night when the unique bar lightens the deserted houses and music comes to you like an echo...More
