Attractions
Information about Neohori and Lake Plastira in Karditsa...

The famed Lake Plastira region, the lake for all seasons, is situated in the Prefecture of Karditsa. The lake is named after Nikolaos Plastiras, a former Prime Minister of Greece, and lies some 30 km west of Karditsa town. To be precise the lake is actually artificial, a reservoir created after the building of an immense arch-shaped dam which stands some 83 m high and measures some 200 m in length.

Lake Plastira is situated in the Agrafa Mountains and is a jewel in the crown, not only of the Prefecture of Karditsa, but also all of Greece. All villages surrounding the lake, such as Mesenikolas, Morfovouni, Kerasia, Kalyvia Pezoula, Neraida, Belokomitis, Kastania, Lambero, and many others, are truly charming.
And it is in one of these, Neohori -which covers a wide area and has the best vistas over the lake- that one can find the PANDION RESORT HOTEL.

Lush vegetation comprised of oak, plane and chestnut trees, combined with abundant running water, surround this fairytale-like lake which is ideal for romantic holidays, action holidays with friends or for simply getting away from it all. Lake Plastira is beautiful all year round and is the ideal choice for nature lovers, people in search of alternative tourism, athletes, ramblers, etc. due to the numerous, diverse activities available such as horse riding, mounting biking, rambling, rafting, etc. which are referred to in more detail below. The area was also the official cycling training centre for the 2004 Olympic Games.

Numerous cultural events and activities are also organised by many villages in the Agrafa Mountains over the course of the year, each of which has its own charm. Some examples are:
The Lake Plastira Festival organised by the Municipality of Itamos during August.
The Wine Festival in Mesenikolas from 10 to 15 August.
The Plastiria Festival in Morfovouni from 1 to 15 August.
The traditional Agrafa Mountains celebration at Morfovouni on Carnival Saturday.
Cultural Events in Kerasia from 20 to 24 August.
Lake Plastira is also ideal for religious tourism since there are numerous churches and monasteries in the region such as The Zoodochou Pigis (Life-Giving Spring) Chapel dating from 1647 in the village of Mesenikolas, the Kimiseos Theotokou (Dormition of the Virgin) Monastery dating from 1770 at the crossroads on the road to Kerasia, the Church of Ag. Panteleimonas in Pezoula, the Monastery of Ag. Triada in Fylakti, the Church of Ag. Nikoloas in Neohori, the Panagia Pelekiti Monastery in Karitsa, the Korona Monastery in Kastania, and numerous others besides.
