Keri : Holiday Accommodation
Famous on the island for being a real beauty spot, this cute village attracts the getaway-from-it-all crowd with its stunning scenery, sun-kissed shores and friendly laid-back atmosphere. Keri village although developed has maintained its olde-world Greek character with its old stone built houses. Wander through the village where you’re more than likely to meet the locals. The local villagers to this day are still producing wonderful olive oil and wine that is a must to be experienced along with freshly caught fish that is served in the local taverns. The pretty part-sandy part-pebble beaches are the perfect setting to relax on, or if you prefer to explore the beaches around the area why not rent a canoe or a sea-bicycle? You won’t find any powerboats in Keri as the beautiful "Caretta Caretta" sea turtles use the beaches for egg laying. Holidays to Keri are all about getting away from it all, so make sure you dedicate some time to exploring. Away from the sea and beach, you’ll find some quaint little shops to pop your head in and out of, all selling various everyday essentials as well as traditional locally made sweets, gifts and souvenirs. Pack a picnic for long country walks through fields and pine forests to gorgeous green valleys or hire a bike and cycle off into the hills. Don’t miss a trip to Keri’s lighthouse to enjoy the breathtaking views. It’s well worth it for the dazzling views over the island and the twinkling waters. Keri caves with its fascinating rock formations is also worth exploring. However you spend your days, wind down after dark in one of Keri’s authentic restaurants. They serve Greek favourites like mezes consisting of juicy olives and crumbly feta cheese, and good hearty beef stews and stifado. A delicious meal to the sound of the waves is a temptation that’s hard to resist. It’s also the perfect end to a perfect day. There’s also the chance to experience traditional music and dancing. Add a glass of Ouzo, the local tipple and gorgeous sunsets and you’ve got all that you need for a relaxing break.
