Surroundings

Chalkida [halki`-tha]

Chalkida is the capital as well as the administrative, cultural, commercial and industrial center of the island of Evia. It is located 29 km southwest of Alilea Villas.
Chalkida’s old bridge connects the mainland to the island over the Evripous Channel where the current changes direction about every 6 hours! This tidal phenomenon, the sacred churches, the fortress of Kanithos and the fountain of Arethousa are among the things worth taking a look at. The town also has an Archeological and Folk Arts museum.

Nerotrivia [ne-ro-tri-via`]

A mountain village with beautiful views of the area, 7km north-east of Alilea. Thanks to its high altitude Nerotrivia has a cool breeze which makes it an ideal location for warm summer days. It is a good location for walks and dining.

Dafni

12km North of Alilea Villas, past Nerotrivia village, is the lovely area of Dafni. An area with a white pebble beach, with crystal clear waters and springs that flow straight into the saltwater. A location where pine trees meet the sea and create a unique beauty.

Other Places of Interest on Evia

Apart from the near by attractions the visitor of Alilea Villas can go on day trips and explore various other spots.

The natural sites of Eretria and Limni Evias. The picturesque villages of Agia Anna, Vassilika, Rovies and Steni Dirfis shall definitely enchant you.

Areas of Interest on the mainland

Delphi with its famous ancient monuments, although on the mainland, is just over 2 hours drive by car. In Delphi one walks amongst ancient Greek monuments dating as far back as the 4th century BC. Near by is Arahova, a beautiful mountain village well worth a visit.
Finally, Athens is close. You can get there by driving or taking the train. Once in Athens use the metro (underground) to get around. This way you avoid driving around a busy city and getting lost. Athens has lots for the tourist to see and most points of interest are at the very centre and can be seen within a day trip from Alilea Villas.
