Rovies - Evia Greece

Rovies is a seaside resort in North West coast of Evia and is located 88km from Chalkida. The area is a small natural paradise surrounded in rich vegetation as the village is built within an huge olive grove, between the mountains and Kavalaris and Telethrion surrounded by pine clad hills and numerous fruit trees.

The beautiful natural landscape of the area along with the combination of mountain and sea with the endless long sandy beach with crystal clear waters attracts large number of tourists throughout the year.

Rovies identified with the ancient city Oroviai, where, according to mythology, was a place of worship of Hercules and Apollo. Through time, destructive earthquakes razed the ancient city resulting the transfer of the settlement as proven by archaeological discoveries to the place of “Paleochori and Hercules”.

Rovies was reconstituted in its present position during the Byzantine period and the Frank domination era, a sample of which is the "Venetian Pyrgokastelo" which dominates the middle of the village.

The area offers modern accommodations with all the amenities, cafeterias and restaurants to serve the visitors. The houses are very well presented and they all have gardens full of flowers and fruit trees.

The village of Rovies also covers the small settlements of Paliochori, Kalamouri, Drimonas as well as the famous monastery of Osios David the Elder.

It is well worth visiting the convent of Agia Irine Chrysovallantou which is located in a beautiful setting on the road “Limni – Rovies – Edipsos”.
Among other attractions in the area is the Monastery Galataki, the waterfalls of Mount Drimonas, the monument for Lieutenant Dimitrios Agiasofitis and many more.

For swimming we recommend the sandy beaches of Ampouria, Agioi Apostoloi, Cochyli, Vrysoula and Limni.
