Gökçeada Tepeköy

The locals of this village have left for mainly economic reasons to developed countries but they come back every year in fancy cars and fell the nostalgic moments. Most of the houses on this village have been repaired. In summer around 15 August is the big party time. There is religious celebration. Food is cooked collectively, people dance. If you came on another time no problem, the place of Barba Yorgo will give you an idea about how it is like.

Beware that this village is located on a terribly high hill and therefore may be challenging to reach by car. In the mornings local people are very active with cleaning their houses, cooking, doing some construction work. During the lunchtime everyone is indoors and it is rather more silent until evening breeze arrives. The central plain and the coffee house will be confusing to remind yourself whether you are in Greece or in Turkey.
