The bordering village of Ipati, 22km west of Lamia and 8km south of the Karpenisi–Lamia road, has the remains of a fortress and is (along with Pavliani to the south) a starting point for hikes on Mt Iti. The hub of the village is the tree-shaded central square, Plateia Ainianon, flanked by a few traditional kafeneia (coffee houses).

Loutra Ipatis, a sweet and low-key village on the approach to Ipati, is home to a year-round thermal spa, a few hotels and tavernas.
