Pertouli

 

Pertouli is one of the most beautiful places in Trikala prefecture. The beautiful forests and green fields on Koziakas mountain, along with the ski resort on the site Livadia constitute an idyllic place, ideal for summer and winter excursions.

The ski resort on the site Livadia, 1,200 m high, has a cableway and a ski lift whereas its runs are ideal for the skiers who lack experience.

The ski resort is between the villages of Elati (its old name was Tyrna)  and Pertouli.

Elati (situated in an altitude of 900 m) is one of the most developed tourists centers of the area and the visitor has plenty of choices.

Pertouli (1,100 m high) has been built amphitheatrically on the slopes of the mountain, and has traditional stone houses and high quality tourist accommodation.
