One of the three mastiha villages of Chios and probably the most charming and authentic, with narrow streets, arches, cats and even donkeys. A lot of colors, of flowers and grass plants. And since 2018, very nice paintings in a naive style of people -...More

Olympi still retains its basic defensive design of mesmerising side streets and central tower. beautiful stone built houses and alleyways that draw you into the centre. lovely tavernas in the tower offering fantasic trditional dishes at old fashioned prices.

It's very beautiful town and it's more interesting than Mesta. There is also very good restaurant in the center. Narrow streets which were built against pirates are very attractive.

Along with Vessa this is my favored little medieval little town in the island. Not as majestic, and restored, as the nearby Mesta but jet unspoiled from mass tourism. The village is fortified, with a single original door, built in the 12th century. It has...More
