The tiny village of Agia Paraskevi, stands high on the hillside looking out over the Lybian Sea .The village provides the location for unique holiday experience. The past decade the village has been slowly restored back to life. Agia Paraskevi has two churches and a score of houses which are located over a wide area of hillside with rocky ground and olive groves. All the houses are built in traditional style from local stone and wood, with terracotta tiled roofs, each one with its own particular character. The village of Agia Paraskevi is an amazingly peaceful place with no large villages and towns nearby. The sky at night is a revelation of vast and dazzling carpet of stars
