You will be able to buy local products in Koiliomenos and you will find good restaurants, cafes and a mini market.
It is 20 minutes drive to Limni Keri which is lovely. Keri is the village in the mountain and Limni Keri is the beach and port. You will see lush olive groves and vineyards on the way to Keri. The village is enchanting with old, stone houses and narrow streets. The lighthouse of Keri offers lovely sea views on top of a 300m cliff. The lighthouse has guided ships for more than a century. The rocky landscape and the steep cliff make for some wonderful sunset photographs. Limni Keri means Keri's lake in Greek. It is 4km from the village itself and boasts a small port where you can rent boats or take a trip.
It is a lovely day out if you rent a boat and visit Marathonissi Island, otherwise known as Turtle Island. The island has lush vegetation, beautiful sea caves and amazing sandy beaches. If you are lucky you may see the endangered Caretta turtles that swim around the island as they lay their eggs on the sandy beach on the island.
There is a lovely beach at Marathia, located close to Limni Keri, which is quiet and peaceful. Fabulous natural arches have been sculpted into the sea. Some of the small beaches in this area can only be accessed by boat.
Agios Sostis is a charming village surrounded by beautiful countryside and with a stunning backdrop of the mountains. It can be reached within 15-20 minutes from the villa. It was named after a 16th century church dedicated to Saint Sostis. There are some charismatic bars and restaurants on the waterfront and a lovely beach. You can hire a boat from Agios Sostis to visit the remote beaches and Marathonissi Island.
