The settlement is located southwest of the Pagasitic Gulf and at the entrance of the homonymous bay of the Nies. The greenery of the area is characterized by extensive olive cultivation. Nies is located seven kilometers from Amaliapolis (formerly Mitzela) and within walking distance of the town of Almyros.
The ruins of the Byzantine church of the Holy Trinity are preserved there. In the area there are also the church of Agios Ioannis and Agia Anna. Two olive mills, the first owned by Dana-Alexopoulou-Tsigrinou-Anagnostopoulou and the second by Georgios Triantos, have been designated as historical monuments since 1995.
