A bit outside Halandritsa, there is a road going to Mirali and Thomeika. From this road we can reach the mountain peak Zoubata and Rakita, a beautiful resort, ‘drowned’ in fir trees. Lets’ keep on straight to the Road of Patras – Halandritsa – Kalavryta. At 13.5 km we enter the mountainous village called Katarraktis and at 18 km there is a second bypass. If we keep on straight we soon reach Kalanistra and Kalanos and a bit forther, there is Chrysopodaritissa Monastery.

At 73 km, if we turn right the label shows us that we are heading to Aytokinitodromio, Industrial Zone (VIPE), Valmantoura, Elliniko, Kalousi. We pass by Halandritsa, where the label informs us that:

  • If we keep on straight we will reach VI.PE

We turn left, passing by cultivated fields full of grapevines and cereals. At 3 km of the route, you are in Rentes, where Aytokinitofdromio will be constructed one day. You might also meet Schumacher here one day!

As you keep on straight the scenery turns to semi-mountainous with lots of plane trees and bushes. At 5 km we reach Valmantoura with its nice taverns. At 8.9 km we enter Elliniko. After 3.5 km, the road splits in two:
