Kini is a village at an altitude of 200m, with characteristic local architecture. It’s part of the famous Mastic villages; a series of fortified villages built in the 14th century. Some are very impressive with their intricately painted houses. This so-called ‘Mastichochoria’ is an area well known for the production of mastic. This is the hardened resin of the mastic tree which is only harvested on Chios. It is a major part of the local economy and to protect this throughout history, the villages were built out of sight from the sea and surrounded by high walls. The central tower had no door at street level, but was entered by ladders which were used as bridges from the rooftops and then pulled up. It’s an impressive sight to see and mastic is a product widely used in cooking, also providing certain health benefits. Also, tasty liqueur and sweets are produced from this resin, also referred to as ‘tears of the gods’.
It’s only a 10-minute drive from the home to the beach and no more than 25 minutes from Chios Airport.
