-WALKS - HIKING
Some suggestions from our visitor :
…..I've been looking at our diary and at maps, in order to suggest some walks that visitors could do from your cottages;
the best map is the Anavasi 8.7 Mt Parnon, with a scale of 1:50,000 described as a "hiking map"
However, there are now an increasing number of walks on WikiLoc and other websites. The walks we enjoyed from Amygdalia were the one above Vlisidia (Neochori) it continues to Kosmas and the one in the Sunflower Southern Peloponnese book (now sadly out of print) from Pigadhi down to Poulithra via Longari.
In the past we've walked from Kremasti to Kyparissi (in two halves!)--this is on an adjoining map published by Anavasi online but not in printed form. Other walks, marked on maps but which we didn't try because of the hot/rainy weather, are from Pera Melana to Leonidio, from Poulithra to Phokianos and from Pyrgoudhi to Poulithra. None of the walks is waymarked (the only waymarked paths on Parnon are around Polydrosso).
Hope this helps!
We are missing our stay in your very special part of Greece……
