On your way from Drapanos to Kefalas if you don’t take the left turn to Ombrogialos, then within a hundred metres or so, you will enter the small village of Paleloni. The main street – down which you are now driving- is lined with large Ecalyptus trees and contains some fine old traditional houses. the actual village is off to the right.
An 'alóni' in Greek is the stone circle previously used by the old farmers to thresh wheat / corn using donkeys etc. 'Paleó' in Greek means old. Hence, Palelóni is named after the old stone threshing circle for which the area was renowned.
Paleloni has about 60 permanent residents. It is within the municipality of Vamos and is part of the community of Kefalas which it effectively adjoins.
There are fine mountain views from everywhere in the village and some of the houses also boast panoramic sea views. There are some lovely renovated and well cared for older houses inside the village with some fine newer houses on the edges of Palleloni.
