It still remains pretty much a traditional village, with narrow streets and traditional properties while on the outskirts of the village some more modern style homes have been built in recent years. Kalithies is a village steeped in history and there are many monuments to confirm its existence dating back thousands of years in time. One such monument is the Kalamonas cave where archaeologists found the oldest known Neolithic human remains, dating between 5000 and 3700 BC. The village church called Timios Stavros (Honorable Cross) is celebrated each year in the middle of September with a three day long festival.

The village square is a constant hive of activity with young and old alike enjoying a coffee or an ouzo. There are many bars and tavernas offering good home-style food at reasonable prices. The locals are known for their hospitality and the village is home to a number of foreigners who were drawn in by the friendly atmosphere and decided to stay!
