The village of Orthonies is much as it was fifty years ago with a slow pace of life. The road through Orthonies has marvellous views. As you drive down from the highest point you see the roof of an old monastery, which is currently being refurbished under a programme to restore all monasteries in the Ionian Islands.

The resident monk is often available to show you around. Of particular interest is the Abbots Old House, which is behind the church in the monastery. Accommodation, once used by the monks, reveals nothing more than bare cells. This is a beautiful place to explore taking you back in time to a remote and removed location.
