Vlachokerasia is a village in Arcadia, Peloponnese, Greece. It is located 22 km from Tripoli and at an altitude of 960 meters, in a region with cherry trees, holly, chestnuts and apple trees, walnuts and plane trees. Many water mills and water jets served not only Vlachokerasia but also the villages to Tegea. The place has always been inhabited. The ancient inhabitants, the Skyrites, were famous warriors. The rich finds of the archaeological excavation from the area are housed in the Tegea Museum. It was the territory of Demeter, apparently because of the very fertile land.Some testimonials from past generations over time confirm that the ancient name of the village was Ion (Greek: Ιών )
