The village of Atheras is located in Palliki, north of Lixouri. It is a mountain village but has a seaside resort on the beach, at a distance of about three kilometers.
Porto Atheras is sandy and is located in the center of a small, narrow bay, which protects it and keeps the waters calm and sheltered. The waters are shallow and blue and ideal for swimming but also for young children - it is one of the favorite beaches of families, as children here can play without fear of the sea. Opposite, a small island, Atheronisi completes the landscape.
At one end of the beach there is the beautiful church of Agios Spyridon which is the property of the Sakkatos - Kokotos family. It belongs to a complex with an old olive mill and a house, which has been considered preserved in its entirety since 1985. In the church in Porto Atheras there is a festival every year on August 11, when the miracles of St. Spyridon are celebrated, but also on December 12, the day of his feast.
