Kamatriades: Escape in this Hidden Gem on Evia Island

The picturesque village of Kamatriades on the north side of the Greek island of Evia lies on the slopes of mount Telethrion at an altitude of 350 meters.

The village, offering spectacular views all over Evia, was covered in snow when Greek Reporter arrived on Saturday.

A small traditional café is the focal point of the village of only 75 souls. Some decades ago, the village was boasting a population of 400, but many of the younger population left for the bigger towns of Evia and the rest of Greece.

The residents are mainly engaged in agriculture, livestock farming and logging.

In recent years, many have been involved in tourism, since the village is a favorite destination for hiking, horseback riding and mountaineering.

In the village there is also a horse riding center belonging to Mr. Tassos Katsikogiannis.
