The Village of Gialova
Gialova with it’s long sandy beach, is a small village with it’s scattered houses spread out between the farms, embedded in greenery of sweet smelling lemon and orange trees and large olive groves.
From Eleonas walking to the little centre of the village near the beach the church of Agios Konstantinos will attract your attention along with the old disused factory hidden behind high eucalyptus.
In the picturesque stone paved street leading to the beach and the pier you will find a couple of cafeterias and a few characteristic restaurants and taverns.
This tiny street has always been the heart of the village as the pier was used in the past for transportation of agricultural produce and the farmers from the surrounding villages used to come here to meet with the traders and deliver their harvest. This has built up a culture of warm hospitality and the local inhabitants are renowned for being the best hosts. You can feel this strongly as you meet people.
The lagoon of Gialova is a fine example of a productive ecosystem and one of 10 major lagoons in Greece. It is one of the most important migratory stop over points in Europe and its brackish waters are a refuge for rare birds and the reeds and other water plants that grow in fresh water marshes full of fish.
The lagoon of Gialova is an excellent area for walking and bird watching.
On the outskirts of the lagoon the sand dunes provide the perfect habitat for reptile populations such as the African Chameleon.
There could not be a more interesting and enjoyable holiday than one you spend exploring the wonderful landscape, visiting the unique ancient sites, meeting rare wild life in the wet lands and discovering a “paradise on earth”
Yes, Eleonas is an ideal base for walks and short expeditions.
Think of strolling along the paths that wind between the fields and wander through the quaint picturesque villages exploring some of the most magnificent places in Greece. Gentle hillsides with extensive olive groves that constantly change colour in the light of the sun and the ever-present radiant blue of the sea in the background make every trip a unique experience.
