Voies - Neapoli (434)
(Municipal District)

Voies is a Municipal Unit in the Municipality of Monemvasia, with its seat in Neapoli, a town in the area where ancient Voies was located, with a history that begins in the second millennium BC. The Municipal Unit covers the southeastern part of Lakonia, down to Cape Maleas. It is a beautiful place, although relatively unknown, with picturesque villages, natural and cultural attractions, and many delightful solitary sandy beaches. The area of Vatika (another name for Voies) also has a well developed network of trails. The transitions between mountainous, semi-mountainous, and marine areas, as well as the relatively short distances between the villages and the many points of interest in the area, create an ideal hiking network for exploration.
