one&only Kalavryta

Kalavrita is a place full of history and no such natural beauty that attract visitors throughout  the year. For many years Vouraikos river starts its journey from Kalavrita, runs through the homonymous gorge and  ends up in Diakopto, on the coast of the Corinthian Bay.

Kalavrita is a well known historical town in the Western Pelloponese (Achaia), built on the foothills of mount Helmos, at an altitude of 720 to 840 m. The population rises to about 1.700 permanent residents. You will see the municipality of Kalavrita, which is also called «the town of the sufferers" because of  what the suffering Greeks went through from the Germans, therefore, it is the central location of towns and villages that have been impaired in Greece.

In recent years, Kalavrita has become a major tourist attraction with excellent facilities for all tastes. Undoubtedly, an important part of its attraction is the ski operation. A Courthouse, a local hospital and a railway station are situated. New restaurants, a variety of accommodation properties, several coffee bars, and patisseries, shops selling traditional products, retailers and rental skis have been created. The municipal authority has also recently completed a walkway around the shops, using cobblestones and in some points even made a tasteful imitation of railway lines.
