KAPETANIANA

The few inhabitants of the village primarily make a living from breeding sheep and goats. There are a few apiarists, whose bees find ample nourishment to produce the delicious local honey amongst the low maquis shrubs which grow around Mount Kofinas and down to the coast. Here, sea salt production is undertaken by some people, using traditional methods.


Two Byzantine churches dating back to 1403 bear witness to the importance of the village in times gone by.

Our guests can enjoy the beautiful view of the Libyan Sea and the peace and quiet of this unspoilt village.

From here you can hike around Mount Kofinas, go climbing as well as biking, or relax on beautiful beaches on the South Coast.

Beautiful, remote beaches can be reached via several off-road tracks. The nearest beach (Agios Ioannis) is approximately 25 minutes' drive away-an adventurous route through breathtaking countryside.
