Mariou is situated north west of Plakias, just 1,5km east of Myrhtios on the slopes of Mount Kouroupa. The village is still very authentic and the views from 190 meters above sea level towards Plakias Bay are fabulous. At the east end of the village, along the main road, is a picturesque little church built against the rocks.
Walk 13 passes Mariou.
