  • Paleros is still a fishing town.

    Palairos Local Customs

    Paleros is still a working fishing town even if the vessles are not very big.It ads a lot to the charm of the town that you have the fishing boats in the harbour with the local fishermen working with their net and bringing the days catch in, so let us hope that it will stay like this in the future too.

  • Nice coffee place by the sea.

    Palairos Restaurants

    Cafe Kolymbos in Paleros is one of the nicer cafes in town and it´s not particular pricey.It´s located right by the sea next to the harbour and has both indoor and outdoor seating.I have just gone there for coffee so I can not talk about their food, but the service i got there was good and the place has a very pleasant atmosphere.

  • Paleros is rural Greece.

    Palairos Favorites

    Paleros is out of the way and still retains a lot of village charm in todays bustling international world and the pace of life is slow.So you better get used to that when you go there and take it with a smile when you have to wait for a few minutes to let a shepherd pass with his sheeps on the main road for instance.
