Walk from the Antelikos fountain

A walk of 1,045m, taking 18 minutes and graded 1.5 for difficulty. We proceed along the provincial road from Vasiliki to Syvros and when we get to the Antelikos stone fountain we take a path to the right. All along it the walker can enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the unspoiled natural landscape. This is a relatively easy walk for lovers of nature, and can also be a pleasant ride for cyclists. The visitor mustn’t forget to take a walk around the Dafni park, just 200m from the entrance to the village.

00:00 The walk begins at the intersection 10m before the Antelikos stone fountain (GPS: N38 39 680, E20 38 392, H=85m)  Access map. Walk from the Antelikos fountain (Start). Just a few metres from the start of the path we see to our right the first tall reeds and hear the sound of the little river on the same side. As we continue the gurgling of the river becomes louder and to our left we see two natural springs, with running
00:05 water, safe to drink. We can pause here for a moment and admire the harmony of the landscape, with the musical accompaniment of the running water. To the right, in the background, we can see the remains of an old stone watermill, while all along the path there are plane trees and all sorts of aquatic vegetation. Everything is covered in green - even the trunks of the plane trees are embraced by tendrils of ivy. In the past there were 20 working watermills in Syvros, exploiting the many water sources in the area. We are now proceeding across natural terrain and walking is a great pleasure, the landscape verdant in spring, with wild flowers dotted here and there, and in winter coated in a layer of plane and oak leaves.
00:06 A few metres farther on we come to a fork in the path and it is a good idea to take the right-hand path for a while, crossing the makeshift wooden bridge with great care to the other side of the river, where there is an orchard o fruit trees. In front of the bridge there are natural waterfalls, adding an extra dimension to the landscape. We now go back over the bridge and return to the fork, turning right and following the main line of the path. We are now moving more steeply uphill. To the right and left of us are trees with tall trunks. On the first curve to the left there is a large laurel tree and many myrtles. A few metres farther on, on the left, there are two small meadows studded with daisies.
00:09 A few metres farther on we come to the end of the walk, as we reach the provincial road to Syvros (GPS: N38 34 832, E20 38 348, H=115m)  Access map. Walk from the Antelikos fountain (End). To return to the starting point we can take the provincial road going downhill to the left. On each side of the road are small meadows, at the start, and then olive
00:18  groves. At the two sharp bends in the road there are wonderful views of the Vasiliki Bay.
