Area Attractions

The location of «Golden Nefeli» guest houses, in the village of Agios Georgios Nilias, could not be more ideal. From here, the options for side tours are endless. Just a few minutes away we reach Pinakates (5 km), the beautiful mountain village Hania (7 km) and Milies. Trikeri looks beautiful from the rooms of our traditional homes. The sea is actually «on our plate». The most beautiful beaches of the gulf of Pagasitikos (Afissos, Kala Nera - a beautiful tourist resort- and Lower Gatzea -a picturesque village which has organized campsite), are just 8 km away. From the other side of the peninsula, the Aegean Sea is within short distance and you can enjoy some of the most beautiful beaches in the prefecture, like the ones in Mylopotamos, Lambinou -with the beautiful clear blue waters- and Fakistra.

 

Afissos

The picturesque fishing village on the beach that is washed by Pagasitikos, is amphitheatrically built among three beautiful beaches of Kallifteri, Lagoudi and Abovos. The beaches are golden, with crystal clear waters. The area is picturesque, dominated by the cobbled streets, flowering courtyards and picturesque squares lined with trees and two bridges. In the square of Afissos we can drink water from the same spring where the Argonauts drank just before starting the trip to the distant Colchis.

 

Lefokastro

The beaches of Pau (5 km), of Kalamos (6 km) and Lefokastro ( 9 km) on the gulf of Pagasitikos and on the side of the Aegean, the beautiful sandy beaches of Potistikon (15 km) and Paltsi (13 km) are ideal choices.

It has a unique beauty each season, with lush green foliage in the summer, covered with dense layer of leaves in autumn or white with snow in winter. You will visit many major attractions including the Church of the Archangels with the steeple and the Library. There is also the cave of the Centaur Ηeron, which, according to many local sayings, is the cave under the rock where we find the chapel of Taxiarchis.

Of unique beauty are the old stone chapels and churches and the square with its beautiful domed fountain.
