|On the hills around Messonghi there are beautiful traditional villages, maintaining local architectural features, with nice old buildings and the traditional “kantounia”, the narrow stone paved streets. The most picturesque of them are Aghios Dimitrios and Chlomos (3 and 4 kilometers, southern to Messonghi, respectively) and Chlomatiana, at a distance of 4 kilometers at the South.
All of them offer a marvelous view, both of the land and of the sea and are ideal for an afternoon coffee. At Chlomatiana you may also visit the church of Panaghia and at Vrangianiotica (3 kilometers southern to Messonghi) you will see the old church of Aghia Paraskevi, dated to the 17th century.
Accommodation is available within the settlement and in the broader area.
Food is abundant and good in the taverns of the area, where you may taste the local dishes, as well as fresh fish and sea food, but also typical dishes of Greek cooking.
You will enjoy swimming at the beautiful beach in front of the settlement, or you may choose any of the beaches of the area, some of them crowded and cosmopolitan and others more peaceful.
A series of cultural activities are organised by the Municipality in summer. In case of health problems, a local Medical Center is available at Argyrades (some 11 kilometers southern to Messonghi). Access from the capital (Corfu, 22 kilometers) is easy by taxi and rented or private car and motorbikes.
