Kattavia is an attractive farming village with a few old houses and a picturesque village square. It is popular with surfers since it is the village closest to Prasonisi so it is small wonder that the few rooms available for rent are usually occupied by them. The village boasts of a couple of taverns as well, a mini market and a cafe-restaurant for snacks and light meals.
The few country houses scattered around the village, the old airport (on the left as you drive towards Prasonisi) and the impressive road lined with cypress trees opposite the derelict Italian church with its clock tower on the main road from Gennadi to Kattavia show that the area was first developed during the time of Italian rule.
