The Villas of Qeparo are located in the old village of Qeparo, perched on the mountain, 10 minutes from the seaside. It is reached by a small concrete road, winding and steep which can be impressive the first time.

This atmosphere surrounds the village.
About thirty residents and ten children live in the village actually.
Some inhabitants are starting to rehabilitate certain houses, including a few foreigners.
The village still remains isolated, but it is a beautiful, authentic experience.
