'Hidden', 'remote', 'neglected', 'traditional', 'from another era' are all descriptions of the postcard-beautiful villages nestling in the olive groves of pARKadia.
     Unlike seaside villages which mainly rely on tourism, these mountain villages still make their living from agriculture and livestock and are home to the disappearing traditions of a centuries-old life. Most do not have hotels and usually the only foreigners besides itinerant migrant labourers are somehow connected to the village through blood or marriage. A few villages do have some kind of tourist infrastructure, a caféneon and maybe a "xenon" ('guest house').
