  • We stopped on the way to another nature park and donated: was peak heat (1:00 pm), but in the shade of pine trees was cool. Great place to take a walk among the trees, breathe clean air, filled with fragrance of pine needles and aromatic mountain herbs. Struck by the abundance of peacocks: there are just a huge number, some were with chickens (very similar to chicken), large males and females good-looking. The kids were more excited about the kittens and cats, where there is hardly more than a peacocks. There is a small pond with water turtles (some went down to the water and touch them). You can drive from two directions: from the Kefalos and by Anmahii. By Kefalos leaves a narrow dirt road on the left, just before a steep right turn, there is a small bent plate "Plaka Forest". On inspection of 1.5 hours is enough, but you can wander around and enjoy the place. Be sure to pick up a treat for kittens and peacocks (can feed almost with they all manual). Admission is free (as such, there is no rope fence only from machines on the side of the road).

  • Unique place in a hidden valley. This is a nice wood where there are free roaming peacocks all around as well as some turtles and cats. Perfect place to make a rest on the way from one end of the island to the other. Always shady and if you bring some bread the peacocks will happily come to be fed.
  • Lovely place with nice scenery. Peacocks & cats wandering around. Saw turtles to. A good family place to have picnic to
  • Lovely! Walk among the peacocks, peahens and their chicks who co-exist with the friendly yet semi feral cats in this tranquil woodland area.
  • Must visit. Nice to See The peacocks and Cats. Try to finf some feathers 😉
  • Nice small forest with a lot of peacocks and cats. They are taken care of as there is food and water around. If you walk into the forest you'll also find frogs and small turtles in the water.
