Hiking on the paths of history and myth
Drakospita (Dragon Houses)
Hike in the world’s unique megalithic monuments of Evia, the Drakospita. They consist of huge stones from Dryopes, the first Greek tribe that passed through the island of Evia. What draws awe and admiration is the huge construction and roofing of the houses which is unique for that period of time. How can you not be surprised seeing the Cyclopean stones floating over your head! They date back to 1100 BC. The findings of the excavations at Drakospita are found in the Archaeological Museum of Karystos.
Armenon Castle is built over the village of Styra at an altitude of 630 m. It was constructed during the 6th century BC and then inhabited throughout history up to the Byzantine period. Giant rocks are a natural fortification and part of the construction of the walls is preserved. Inside, you will find the chapel of the Virgin Mary of 1879 and the rocky cave of Saint Nicholas. The gate is constructed of huge monoliths inspiring admiration. From this point, the view of the Evoikos Gulf is unique.
The area is ideal for walks to natural beauty spots
Likorema – Megali Ammos (Chrisi Ammos) – Marmari
Starting from your villa on foot or by mountain bike, follow the dirt road to Marmari. From above you can see the bay of Likorema, its beaches and the islands of Petalioi. Continuing you can see Marmari in the background, while Megali Ammos lies at your feet, a special beach whose morphology changes shapes depending on winds and currents making it an ideal destination for windsurfing and kitesurfing.
The Gorge of Dimosari
The eastern side of Mount Ochi in Evia hides a green treasure, a real museum of Nature, Dimosari’s gorge, which is one of the most imposing trekking trails in Greece. The place is reminiscent of a painter’s palette, with touches of red and yellow wildflowers mingling with the green of the fern that covers the banks and slopes of the Dimosari river. Water, a catalyst of life, dispenses its life-giving flow into the gorge, forms little waterfalls and rock pools before it ends in the beach of kallianou.
We can arrange for an experienced mountain guide to accompany you on your excursions.
