Following the northwest route around the island, passing the pine
monastery with its panoramic view of the Ionian
Sea, one comes to the village of Tsoukalades. A village which has harmoniously
interwoven tradition with modernity and offers peace and quiet as well as comfort.
In the area Tsoukalades is the marvelous beach of Pefkoulia where
the verdant pine trees literally touch the crystal clear sea and create a charming
picture; a picture, which liberates all the senses. An invitation to all those
who love exploration is the until now unexplored cave of Ai-Yiannis in the area.
It is also worth paying a visit to the area of the Primary School where the sunset
will charm even the most difficult visitor. In addition, a walk through the pine
wood of the village, alone or accompanied, is sure to leave all nature lovers
