Madouri island

Madouri island. Madouri is a tiny island situated 500 meters from Nidri. This green island is owned by the Valaoritis family. Aristotelis Valaoritis was in the second half of the 19th century, a prominent Greek poet, lawyer and politician. He was grandfather of Nanos Valaoritis, lawyer and classicist and one of the most famous modern Greek writers. From Nidri you can see the big house on the island. Beside the house, the family has built a temple in Gothic style.

The island has also a miniature forest, because hundreds of pine trees and bushes are living here. The entire area, except the lonely building is covered by lush vegetation.
