Omodos is a beautiful village located in a valley just before Kato Platres.  It is rich in history, has beautiful back streets, craft shops, side alleys and stone-built monastery – one of our favourite villages which is well worth a visit.  Pop into the house of Socrates if you get the chance, he’s a real character!  Googlemap Link.

Mount Olympos is the highest point of the mountains – pop to the top for some beautiful views, walks and even skiing in the winter season!  Googlemap Link.
