High in the hills overlooking the villages of Skala and Milos is Metochi. The village has some of the oldest houses found on Agistri.

Metochi is an entirely residential area with the pretty, traditional houses nestled snugly into the hills and home to both local and overseas visitors with holiday houses.

The well patronised Parnassos taverna can be found on the tiny winding streets which weave upwards from the only the road to run through its centre.

Agistri is famous for its pine forest which fragrance the whole island with not only a fresh pine scent but also with the scent of wild herbs and flowers which can be found among the trees. Metochi is the perfect place to reach some of the main tracks which are clearly marked and make great walking and exploring excursions.

Even if hiking is not your holiday style, visiting Metochi is well worth it, to experience the quiet of a traditional Greek village and to wonder at the truly stunning views of the villages below and the Saronic Gulf. It is a panoramic vista of Aegina, the Peleponnese and neighbouring island both inhabited and uninhabited.
