In a document from 1467, it was stated that the Fields of Kandila, (the Kandyliotikos Kampos) were farmed and had ample supply of water.
In 1777, following the Orlov events, many inhabitants of Kandila bearing the name "Sakkakos" (Greek: Σακκάκος) migrated to Koldere, near Magnesia (ad Sipylum).
In 1997, Kandila and all the surrounding communities were combined under the Kapodistrias law into one jurisdiction, to form the Municipality of Levidi.
