I'm looking for a small village to visit and get a taste of true authentic Greek culture, kind of like the one in the picture below. Where can I find something untouched by tourists?

If you're looking for untouched islands I would recommend Hydra and Milos!! They're smaller islands that don't have too much hustle and bustle

It is not easy to find villages untouched by tourists; one has to go to remote places. However, Pilio while it is known, its unique as it has beautiful mountain villages that are also a short drive from beautiful beaches.

Koroni (Peloponnese, Messinia) is quite untouched and close to there is a truly authentic village named Vassilitsi.

The mountain villages above Volos were so fun to see and visit. You would need a car but it was and experience I wont forget and well worth it. Did some hiking up there as well. At one point we even visited a ski village which surprised me, that was after visiting Delphi. Driving the mainland was stunning!

I second the request above recommending Hyrda. Automobiles aren't allowed, and the island seems relatively untouched by time. It's the way Greece was roughly 100 years ago.

Having lived in Mykonos Greece, worked in Tourism industry and travelled extensively all over there are so many choices....Crete.... but go Inland across off the main roads which all lead to off touristy places..... You will be surprised at the hospitality.... Pretty little restaurants with oven cooking, quant seaside towns(Panormos Beach my favourite)....I love Syros, the mother island of the Cyclades, easy to navigate and plenty of seaside like the image with tavernas on the beach and nice atmosphere.... island hopping would be another experience.... Just plan carefully, plenty of connections, they are just getting organised with interisland travel protocols as I write...... Enjoy your time..

Syros is a great option! You don't hear much about the island so I'm assuming its less popular. Where in the island did you stay?
