A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE KUTSOMILIA REGION

The stories handed down from our grandparents tell the tale of an old village built at the foot of the hill which disappeared during an earthquake, at the beginning of the last century. At the top of the village there was a row of seven watermills which brought water to the village and valley. The area still has many of the springs, while the valley is transected by a river. This is where our Kutsomilia groves are located.
