Situated in an area lush with olive, plane and oak trees, it is well-known for its pretty houses and especially for the rare flowers in their courtyards.
Old traditional whitewashed houses with small yards filled with various colorful flowers, arches and graphic walkways compose an incredibly beautiful setting.
The little cute village has preserved the traditional Cycladic architecture and has been listed as a traditional settlement since 1988.
The entrance to the village is dominated by the big church of Agia Triada (Holy Trinity), with the carved marble iconostasis and the Byzantine icons.
Nearby is a disused olive mill that has been renovated and can be visited. The verdant hills around the village, dotted with chapels –notably Panagia Damniotissa and Agios Ioannis Theologos- are ideal for walks and trekking.
The village Kaloxylos is considered the ideal place for those who love a relaxing vacation in a naturally magical environment and with easy access to all the other destinations of the island.
