Mylopotamos is an attractive neat and well-maintained village on the island of Kythera. It is one of the oldest and most beautiful villages on the island with numerous of natural and cultural attractions spread all around. This little village is considered to be a traditional settlement and has so much to offer. It is full of old historical houses, old springs where many years ago we did see village women washing clothes, mills and a waterfall in the gorge, but the top-rated attraction is the deserted medieval village behind the castle walls of Kato Chora. Outside the village, you will find the spectacular cave of Agia Sofia on a steep rockface, moreover the small monastery of Panagia Orfani and the church of Agios Petros.
Go down the path to visit the watermills and the waterfall and have a swim with the nymphs. The watermills walk starts from the village and is definitely worth it, if the water is flowing. Along the way, you will come across 23 watermills, remnants of the past. Return to the village and visit some of the quaint shops selling good quality artisan items, before sitting in the town square under the old plane trees and eating delicious Greek food at one of the many tavernas. For a refreshing swim, visit the beaches of Limnionas and Kalami, around 15 min away. You will probably find yourself crossing Mylopotamos a number of times during your holiday, so do make a stop to cool off in the shade of the trees and stroll around the picturesque village. In Mylopotamos, you can find small hotels, and traditional hostels to stay as well as nice cafes and tavernas to dine.
