Kalamitsi Alexandrou is one of the two villages with similar names (the other being Kalamitsi Amigdali
), located above Georgioupoli
, Apokoronas area. Both Kalamitsi villages are next to each other and have the same outlook with old houses, mini square with a kafenion (cafeteria) and scattered private villas to rent. The area is very quiet, for a really peaceful accommodation and yet close to the large sandy beach of Georgioupoli
(7 km). The traditional villages of Gavalochori
are also nearby, as well as Cape Drapanos
, and just a kilometer south of the village you can visit the almost unknown church of Agios Antionios dug up in rock. In front of the church you will be welcomed by a piece of art - a stone head of a dragon which was probably carved by a hermit.
