Vacation in Nymfaio
One of the ten most picturesque villages in Europe (according to UNESCO), it is located at an altitude of 1,350 m on Mount Vitsi, and is a mountain revelation.
The preserved traditional settlement is surrounded by beech forest, while the cobbled paths and the stone houses refer to other eras.
