We went up and up and up into the mountains to Elafos Hotel before heading back to the south coast to our hotel.
There was a traditional tavern Elafaki (The young Deer) alongside the hotel’s main building and a church next door. You will notice the architecture is nothing like Greek buildings, it seemed very much out of place. The surrounding forest is home to a rare and unique kind of Dama Dama deer. Brought over to deal with the poisonous snakes that used to be on the island. If a Deer saw one, instead of running away they would stomp on it’s head.
On the drive back down the mountains to the coast, we passed this final little gem.
