SOME INFO ABOUT LAKE PLASTIRAS THAT I FOUND IN "www.plastiras-net.gr" :

"The region of Plastira Lake is a pole of attraction for thousands of visitors. It has a considerable infrastructure, such as: Environmental Education Centre, Educational Forest, Ecological Paths, Botanical Garden, Hydro-biological Station, Observatory, Alpine Shelters, and Outdoor Activity Centres. You can rent bikes, canoes, water bicycles for a ride in the lake etc.

There are important monuments and places of interest in the wider region (Sacred Monastery of Korona, Sacred Monastery of Pelekiti, Sacred Monastery of Petra, Gaki cave, Kaimakia cave etc).

The circumferential stretch of the Lake (approximately 60 km) is pleasant and comfortable all year round. During the stretch there are many hotels, pensions and rooms to let. There are also many taverns and restaurants with tasty appetizers and well-cooked food, trout, game, grilled meats, wine and local raki. The visitors can buy local products from the producers of the region, spoon sweets, frumenty, garden products, wine, raki etc.

The area around the Lake belongs to the Municipalities: Nevropoli, Plastira and Itamos. The following villages and settlements are located at an altitude higher than the plateau and with a view over the Lake: Kryoneri, Pezoula, Kalivia Pezoulas, Fylakti, Neraida, Kalivia Fylaktis, Neochori, Belokomytis, Plakoto, Karitsa, Karvasaras, Moucha, Kastania, Lampero and Ag. Athanasios Laberou.
