Nearby Village Excursions

 

 

Not having to travel too far to enjoy a unique village experience, we visit nearby towns and their historic, and religious sights. The village of Bartholomio is one of the closest villages to Ionian Village. This trip gives us an intimate experience with the village lifestyle as we walk through the cobblestone streets and visit the Dormition of the Theotokos church. In Gastouni, we visit the Miraculous Icon of the Theotokos in the remaining Byzantine style church, whose frescoes and iconography was constructed back around the 16th century. Campers explore what both villages have to offer in their shops and restaurants. On our shortest stroll through the scenic roads outside of Ionian Village, we are lead to the village of Glyfa, where we visit the church of St. Marina and attend an evening vespers service there.
