Administrative Region : Central Macedonia
Regional unit : Pella

Notia (Greek: Νότια, formerly Νώτια) is a village in the Exaplatanos municipality of the Pella Prefecture, Central Macedonia, Greece. Lying at an altitude of 595 metres in the Upper Karadjova Plain, it was for centuries the largest Meglen Vlach village, and the only one with a regular market.

Much of Notia's Meglen Vlach population converted to Islam in the 18th century. With the 1923 population exchange between Greece and Turkey, the Muslims of the village were deported to Eastern Thrace in Turkey. They were known as "Karadjovalides" ("Karacaovalılar" in Latinized Greek) after the name of the vicinity.
