Great setting. Lovely walk up from the old town to small church with great surrounding views. Well marked path continues into gorge or up into village of exochorio.

Many reviews already and mine will just confirm what has already been said. If you stay around Kardamili and want to do a short hike of 1 h (back and forth), just go for that one. Nice nature, flowers, sceneries, ... an enjoyable hike 'affordable'...More

After visiting the old Kardamyli complex you should walk up the nice kalderimi (old traditional stone path) to the small church of Agia Sophia. What you will enjoy is the very beautiful views, almost all the way, of Kardamyli. Taking your camera is a must....More
