Region: Ionian Islands Area: Kythira, Diakofti
Kythira, at the south part of the Peloponnese, just 20 km away from that mainland, across Laconia, is a beautiful authentic island of 278 m2 size whose nature is excellently preserved and whose hospitality is exquisite.
In Kythira, you will see huge beaches, undiscovered caves and wild gorges as well as villages all in white of the Cycladic style in stark contrast with the beige of the Venetian architecture of the island.

The refreshing Fonissa waterfall
Mylopotamos, a green oasis
The medieval villages of the island
The magnificent beaches with the crystal clear water
It is worthwhile to stroll in Chora, the islandĒs capital that is calm in the morning, but vibrant as soon as the night sets in.
The Venetian Acropolis, built in the 16th century, offers a panoramic view to the city and to the Kapsalis bay.
A very interesting archaeological museum is situated there and it is worth a visit.
Mylopotamos is a green oasis with its abundant running water and the beautiful neoclassical houses with balconies full of flowers in bloom.
Leaving Diakofto, a road leads to the deserted monastery of Aghia Moni at a magnificent location.
The Venetian castle of Kato Chora, whose entrance is decorated with the Saint Marc lion has some churches. On their walls you can admire byzantine frescoes.
The biggest village of the island is Potamos, 19 km north of the Chora, with its typical houses and unique churches.
