Flatsia is a small village next to Nenita and its few inhabitants are mostly farmers. They cultivate lentisks and olive trees. Agios Georgios Stoupion is the pride of the village and used to be a lepers’ hospital. Locals have done great efforts to preserve it. The Saint’s memory is honoured every Easter Monday. At the southeastern end of the village, we come across the deserted monastery of Agios Nikolaos. The most likely version as to the origin of the name "Flatsia" holds that the Genoans had once built watch-towers there, in order to protect the old village of Vouno. As time went by, the watch-towers (=filakia in Greek) remained permanently on that area and were rephrased by local dialect into filatsia and then into Flatsia.
