AGIOS NIKOLAOS (Village) ALEA
  Agios Nikolaos is situated upon the high mountainside of Mountain Farmakas.
  The village’s characteristics are the same as Alea and Exochi. They have exactly the same climate, with harsh winters and cool summers.
  The most impressive spot of Agios Nikolaos are the ruins of the houses that the Germans had destroyed during the Second World War. They still stand proud and firm, as if they expect to be reconstructed.
  It is a pleasant small village with white houses among gigantic oaks and cedar trees.

ALEA (Village) ARGOLIS
  Alea is a beautiful and amphitheatrical village, 74km from Argos. The locals have dried up the village’s lake, so that its fertile soil offers crops much earlier. They also cultivate lentils, chickpeas, beans, maize, potatoes, tomatoes, other produce, grain, barley and other cereals. There are many apple, walnut and almond trees.
  As most Argolida villages, Alea is constantly developing. It is a village with traditional renovated houses, new roads and newly built buildings. The church of the Virgin Mary is the village’s main church and locals believe that it dates back to the 13th century. In general, the picturesque narrow streets and the traditional houses bolster up the beauty of the village.

FROUSSIOUNA (Village) ALEA
  After Kefalovriso is Frousiouna, a small village among trees and green, 6km from Kefalovriso and 45km from Argos. Frousiouna is ‘protected’ by the gigantic mountains of Lyrkeio, Trachi, Armenia and Karoumpalos.
  During winter it is inhabited by few people. On summer though, it is frequently visited by people who own houses and want to enjoy nature. At the center there is a nice stony fountain, while on Armenia Mountain there is the chapel of Santa Paraskevi.
  Frousiouna was once keeping the spirit of tradition alive. Marriage was celebrated in a special way.
