The name of the village Klodorobi was forcibly changed by the Greek government to Kladorahi. It is a part of the Lerin region about 6 kilometres north of the town. It is on the Lerin plain on the southwest part of the Pelagonija plain at 21 degrees 24 minutes longitude and 40 degrees 50 minutes latitude. The village is 642 metres above sea level and about 10 square kilometres in area.

Klodorobi borders to the north the villages Gorno and Dolno Kleshtino and to the south with the village Kabasnitsa.
