Information

Athani is the nearest village to the famed beach of Porto Katsiki. It has recently been discovered by Europeans and its dwindling population is gradually being fortified by new "blow ins". These new residents make Athani their temporary home during the summer months, leaving the cold and harsh seasons to the local diehards.

Athani is highly regarded for honey as well as its views over the Ionian Sea.
