Locals successfully managed to preserved its beauty and charm through the years and you are really going to be amazed by the architecture of the stoned built mansions and houses, that look like a piece of art hanging on the mountain.

One of the village’s most popular places is the main square. The panoramic views towards the Pagasitic Gulf are just impressive day or night. It is the ideal place to treat yourself with a nice meal or coffee.  Tip: The guesthouses in the village have kept the traditional architecture inside out. Most of them have rooms with fireplaces, and offer breakfast made of local products to make your stay unforgettable.

The Oldest Traditional Greek Cafe, in Pelio

Traditional Greek cafes, mainly found in the small villages of Greece’ s mainland, are a meeting place for local people. You rarely see women in these cafes though, unless they are visitors.    Men meet up, drink their coffees or ouzo and tsipouro, eat mezes, play cards games, talk and argue about politics and football while smoking and laughing.
