Leaving the place and heading towards Gastouni, stop by the seaside village, called “Loutra Kyllinis”, with its thermal spa known from ancient times. The installations are isolated but there is a wonderful beach full of hills made of golden sand. Do not be confused with Kyllini, which is the main port to disembark to Zakynthos.
6 km away from Kyllini, at the top of a hill which towers above the sea, stands Chelmoutsi castle, at Kastro village, which is considered to be the most beautiful and the biggest West European castle of Peloponnesus.
Feel revitalized in the thermal spa waters of the Kaifas Lake. Kaiafas region has a unique character as it combines water areas, forests and sandy hills.

The Apollonian temple in Vasses and the villages of Andritsaina, Karitaina, Stemnitsa and Dimitsana are some of the region’s spots which are worth visiting.
