We have been coming to Greece for more than 35 years, but never experienced a place like Mirtos until five years ago, when we first visited.
Now we hope to be able to keep coming here for many years more. The village is small but with a nice mixture of locals and people from various countries. People are friendly and you feel welcome from the first moment. In the winter time Mirtos is still alive, which is rather unusual for a seaside village. There are two super markets, a butcher´s, a bakery, a newsagent´s, a couple of places to eat and four cafés open all the year around. The day nursery and the primary school contribute to keeping the
village going, of course. In high season there are many more small shops open, where you will find local products such as olive oil, handicraft etc.
There are also many more restaurants and cafés open in high season and you can eat in a different place every night for at least a week. The small museum in Mirtos is also worth a visit.
