The traditional settlement of Peleta lies on a beautiful plateau on the southeast side of Parnon at an altitude of 660 meters. We reach Peleta following an uphill road from the village of Poulithra, where we can enjoy a landscape of wild beauty and a magnificent view of the Myrtoon Sea. Close to Peleta, to the east and after village Pigadi, is the beautiful beach of Fokianos.
The stone was the first raw material with which the inhabitants of the village were able to build their houses. The harmony of the houses with the natural environment resulted in the creation of an idyllic traditional settlement. Thus, stone-built imposing houses dominate all over the village, highlighting the traditional character of the community, which the residents take care to maintain over the years with a great care. This elaborate architecture is, until today, a source of inspiration, admiration and an unparalleled sign of the rich history of our village.
The cheerfulness and the good mood of the inhabitants guarantee your pleasant stay and a break from daily worries. The coolness and the climate of the village will fascinate you on a fascinating journey of images and performances in nature, while the fountain in the central square of the village will quench you with the crystal clear water. In the evenings you will be acquainted with the mystery of the village by drinking a glass of red wine.
In the summer and every year between the two celebrations on August 6 and on August 15 the annual Wine Festival takes place in order to highlight and promote the most important product of the village, the famous Peleta wine.
Wonderful natural landscapes as well as architecture make a picturesque and at the same time idyllic space, in which lies the village of Peleta.
The high-rise stone-built mansions renowned by local community give a distinct character to the landscape, while buildings such as the Elementary School and the imposing Church of the Holy Apostles are signs of eminent architecture which used the stone as a raw material for construction. Subsequently, the stone mill that stands barefoot, despite the obvious signs of time above it, refers to an older era of difficulties and also carelessness, when agricultural occupations dominated the daily lives of people.
Undoubtedly, the famous “Fountains” of the Peleta is the most striking natural creation.
The geomorphology of the area offers both exploitation and sporting opportunities for both the villagers and their visitors. Activities such as cycling, walking distances and hunting help residents and visitors fill their daily leisure time.
