Ampeliona is a very small mountain village in the Peloponnese on the borders of the three prefectures, Messinia - Arcadia - Ileia, just a breath away from the chestnut forest of the area, which offers the perfect place for walks amidst a lush landscape and the starting point for excursions to places of historical interest.
From here you can visit the Neda ravine and the Vyros Gorge, the water spring of Tritseli (which can be found in a green ravine), the church of Agia Theodora (which has 17 large, grown trees on its roof), , you can walk along unique paths and also visit archaeological sites such as the Temple of Epicureius Apollo in Vasses and picturesque villages such as Karytaina and Andritsaina.
Ampeliona is also known as the homeland of the award-winning Greek director Theodoros Aggelopoulos.
The well-preserved stone school of Ampeliona at the central Papagiannis square that has been converted into a hostel, as well as "Trani Vrisi" which has been designated as a preserved monument by the Ministry of Culture will impress you. At Ampeliona, there is also a traditional stone guesthouse-hotel, where you can stay and dine at its restaurant.
