Zeytinli

Village in Gökçeada

Zeytinli is surrounded by green-grey scree-covered hills, with spectacular views over the countryside. It's an idyllic base for an island stay. Once in disrepair, the village is revitalising; in 2013, the Aya Todori Greek Primary School reopened after a 50-year closure. Be sure to sample a cup of the island's famous dibek coffee (Turkish-style coffee that is ground on a dibek stone) in one of Zeytinli's traditional Greek cafes.
