Perithia is a deserted village. It is located high up, off the main road between Kassiopi and Acharavi. It's about 5 km from Kasssiopi and then follow the road up to new Perithia, this is not far, turn left at the fork in the road, you will see the signs, go through the new village. Perithia was built in Byzantine times around the 14th century when people fled their coastal homes in fear of the pirates raiding there coastal villages. Over 1,500 people lived in Perithia. As tourism developed, down on the coast, more of the village inhabitants and families moved down to the 'new' coastal resorts Today there are six people who live in the old village throughout the whole year.
Once upon a time, there was a little village
We stayed in Kassiopi for two weeks in 1979. It was just a small village with rooms to let, and a few tavernas. It was very, hot, there were (stony) beaches close by, and we had a relaxing break from working in London. I bet it's been overdeveloped and spoilt by now.
