Messonghi and Moraitika

Messonghi is a small peaceful resort situated about 1Km. south of the resort of Moraitika. It is quiet and peaceful with the majority of facilities all within 100mtrs. of the beach. The terrain is relatively flat with no steep hills to climb on those hot summer days. Olive groves populate almost every scrap of unused land. The roads in and around the village are not major through roads and therefore traffic is relatively infrequent.
 - Corfu Travel Guide

Boukari

The village of Boukari is a old fisherman's place. Not much has changed for the last decades. Boukari just has a small harbour and an excellent fish taverna. Boukari is the ideal place to stop for lunch or dinner whether you are by car or boat.

I was told by Steve Ford (Corfu Villages) when I saw him last month that you can hire a 50cc automatic scooter with only a full driving licence and do not need a CBT? Can someone please confirm! I'm due in Petriti/Messonghi 15th August for 7 days.
Thanks

Hi Sue I only reserved a seat out 2A left side and not one back just priority boarding. I always try to get a left hand/side seat out as I know the flight path (nearly always) so I can look out the window and see Petriti (sometimes) but always Messonghi/Moraitika/Benitses going into the airport . On the way back any seat will do (sad)

Jackie, have you been to Petriti at all? If not and you want "laid back" Greek time then visit Petriti or come again when I'm in Petriti, I'll be in Messonghi a few times as I have many Greek friends there as well. Have a great time.

I've booked Ryanair this year due to cost and not the "normal" Friday/Monday slots actually Tuesday 15/08/17, question is it worth paying for the extras such as seat priority etc. This is a bit of additional cost 
Many thanks

I second everything Gerry said. There is another lovely place called Notos Beach further on from Petriti, the beach on the right has lovely gardens with hammocks spread around, a taverna and the sea is shallow and calm with canoes, body boards etc use for free. The kids would love it, you can get Christos boat there from the Messonghi river for a lovely boat trip day out that isnt too long.

Where do I start? Tavernas Bacchus/Minories are very good as are the others! If you drive down the coast road to Boukari/Petriti you will find a host of places to stop for a dip and many taverna's along the road. So first stop would be the Fisherman's Haunt Psara then on to Boukari and finally Petriti with its fish restaurants along the harbour. But it's "fun" finding out for yourself when exploring a "new" area of Corfu

Hi Corfusun58 I/we used to stay above the Bacchus taverna, but now my dad can't walk up the stairs we go to the Christina Hotel and have a room on the beach. My very favourite village is Petriti and that has changed a lot! but believe me it still retains the "old" atmosphere. I've hired a wheelchair for my dad in case he needs one! so you may see us? My father always like to have an evening meal at the Bacchus at the far end (you get a nice breeze). Hope to see you, have a good holiday?

[QUOTE=janmanessi] I would actually prefer to base myself in Corfu Town and bus out than be in a purpose built resort, it is magical in the evening- except for July and August when it is so hot, so then I would stay somewhere like Petriti...and chill![/QUOTE]

Yes, I love being in Town in the evenings - pre-dinner drinks on the Liston or in the Town Hall square, followed by a meal at any one of the huge choice of wonderful restaurants - things that can't really be fully appreciated by just taking the odd daytrip there - but I don't think I'd fancy spending two weeks in Town if my primary aim was going for a relaxing sun-and-sand-type holiday. What puzzles me though are all the people who regularly go to Corfu for that sort of holiday, but who also like to have the occasional city break in between and to whom it would never occur that Corfu Town offers a fantastic location for such a break - either as a separate long weekend or even for a few nights tagged on to the beginning or end of their beach holiday.

Edit to add: Maybe I should offer my services to the Corfu Tourist Board if there is such a thing!

The trouble is there are just to many beautiful resorts in Corfu, I think people "gravitate" to the one that they visited first time? It happened to me Messonghi/Petriti, but which ever one you chose I just know you will have a great time and when back home great memories!!

Well being a "southerner" I believe they may be "cheaper" than the N.E. resorts? Try the Christina Hotel in Messonghi I'm staying there in September.
There are a lot of tavernas in both but for a good day out try Petriti?
Hope this helps?

Hi to real Corfu lovers

Does anyone with real local knowledge know whether it would be possible to bring a fishing boat and moor it in the Petriti or Boukari fishermen's harbour.

I was hoping to spend a year there! 
Not necessarily on the boat but do 4 or 5 trips a year there.

Or do you think this would be completely out of order?

Charles

Many places open all over the island- north and south - do try the best selection of fish tavernas on Corfu- Boukari and Petriti.
Also if May 1st is a Friday it should be pretty busy as this is a holiday in Greece many may take a long weekend, so may be 'local' visitors on the island too.

You will also be able to refuel in Paleokastritsa (I can't recall excess to a pump though) Beyond that, on the west coast you may be struggling on the west coast as refuges are few and far between.

You will be able to get fuel in Lakka (Paxos) and I think that there are fuel facilities in Petriti. After that, I think your next refuge is Benitses.

A useful guide would Rod Heikell's Sailing Guide to the Ionion; this gives the location of all harbours and facilities in the area. (Sorry, don't have one to hand at the moment.)

August Blog: Books complete, Pelekas guests & a time to reflect.

For this holiday I decided to catch the train to Manchester airport and arrived via Crewe with 3 hours to spare. I had a couple of drinks in the bar and talked at length with a 75 year old English lady who was going out to South Africa to do charity work with orphaned children. There are some dedicated people out there...

I had 5 days on my own first so potted about the apartment during the day cleaning and trying to organise the cutting of the grass. In the afternoons I drove up to the village and had a frappe, some fruit, couple of beers and a meze at the Hawaii pool bar while listening to chill out music. Night times were spent in the various bars in Pelekas where old acquaintances were made and new ones too.

Ann and Bobby were the first to arrive and the next 2 days were spent around the apartment as a family. Day 8 saw 4 of Ann's best friends arrive and we placed them at Jimmy's taverna and apartments in the top of the village.

The following day Ann and I decided to head south to visit the last few villages to take photographs and reach the finish line at the fishing village of Petriti which I had purposely left until last. We headed down on the Lefkimmi road through Argyrades and Marathias and took the road to the coast from Perivoli. First stop was Kaliviotes where we stopped for some lunch and thirst quencher. We then cruised up the coast road stopping at Notos beach, which was very busy, and on to Petriti. We weren't disappointed. The busy harbour, the selection of fish tavernas and the old village on the hill were worth waiting 3 years for.

Day 9 a friend of mine and our niece came over for the weekend. Bob we placed in Alexandros taverna and apartments and Lisa stayed with us. Now there were 9 of us from Wolverhampton in the village! We all did what we wanted during the daytime and met up for some very late nights over the weekend. Monday they all travelled back which left us a few days to wind down and spend some time with our Greek neighbours.

In the last few days of the holiday I reflected on the on last 3 years it has taken me to write the 3 Corfu villages eBooks. I have visited over 100 villages and have driven over 3,000 kilometres on my scooter. Not bad going when you think that the Island is only 64 kilometres long!

So, part 3 Corfu villages South will be out shortly and I hope you will all enjoy it as much as I have in writing it. Don't forget that every penny goes to Corfu charities and especially to the poorer families of Corfu.

Steve Ford... NOT coming to a village near you! Well not for a while anyway...www.corfuvillages.eu

I normally go in August for the festival in Petriti 15th, but some years ago went last week September first week October some days rain if not just for part of the day and the rest good sunshine. Have been going for over 30 years so I can always fined a bar/taverna open especially in Petriti as it is not really a "tourist" destination! Messongi/Moritika will I think still be open!

July Blog. Final trip, Last village visits and a holiday!

August will be my final visit to Corfu this year as my wife and I will not be taking our usual last holiday of the year to Pelekas in October. Our daughter is going to France for 6 months as she has a job teaching English to French business students as part of her French language degree at Bristol university. Once she has settled in we will visit her in Pau, southern France and take a weeks holiday there.

When I get to Corfu next week I will have 5 days on my own where I plan to go back to the villages of Marathias and Argirades to take a few more photos and to ask some final questions about the history of these areas. That will leave just one village to visit which I am saving for when my wife Ann arrives with my son Bobby. I want to take them down to the fishing village of Petriti where we will have a fresh fish lunch followed by a walk around the village above.

The next 10 days will be spent having my first proper holiday with the family for the last 3 years, the time it has taken me to write the 3 Corfu villages eBooks. It’s going to be very strange not packing my rucksack with a flask of coffee, a jotting pad, a camera and a Corfu map in the early morning and setting off to visit unknown villages all day and returning as the sun goes down.

I will now have a chance to visit some of the places on the tourist trail that I have not yet been to. Vidos Island for lunch, Anemomilos for morning coffee and a walk to the top of Angelocastro. The places I have been saving so that I can visit with Ann. Or, shall I sunbathe by the pool all day and eat Greek salad with fresh Calamari and listen to the Cicadas in the olive groves of Pelekas?

Steve Ford, coming to a village near you!

If you want unspoilt Greece then look south- Boukari, Petriti, Issos, Alonaki, Kalavioti, Paramonas etc.  If wanting something a bit more sophisticated or international then go north.

On east coast any of the beachfront tavernas in Boukari- or Stamatis in Petriti.

On west coast Alonaki.

For a complete contrast to Acharavi I would say Boukari or Petriti- good accommodation, one of the most beautiful coastlines on the island- as long as you like fish or shellfish you will have a wonderful meal right by the sea- and you can visit Corfu Town on the way south too.

Head south from Ag. Gordios to Kato Garouna and Ag. Mattheos.  From there join main road south. 

If you go left off this road you can visit Petriti and Boukari, both unspoilt, places to swim and eat the freshest fish possible.

If you go right off the main road you can go to Vitalades, Marathias, and Issos (avoiding a large resort like Ag. Georgios)

Or just go to Agios Mattheos, down to the beach past Gardiki castle beyond the lake (Halikounas), or at the castle bear right to Prasoudi beach, on to Paramonas and then the narrow coast road that winds through Pentati and ends up back at Ag. Gordios.

If you are heading towards the Fisherman's Haunt you are going in the wrong direction, you are on the coastal road to Boukari/Petriti. Get yourself back to Messonghi village and take the road that runs parallel to that (ie the road that runs from the roundabout). It takes you to Spileo, up the mountain.
Think they are open for lunch, but not sure of opening times. We normally go in the car, but if you are fit I am sure you will get there OK.
 
Have a lovely time!Smile

Hi Cairocuz1 , there are lots of boat trips to choose from, just pop in one of the offices in Moraitika, or have a wander down the river. The boats usually have boards up, to show which trips are on offer, on certain days. If you are not too good on a boat yourself, you could just go on a short trip down the coast towards Boukari & Petriti, which would include going over to the salt flats..but not too far for you, stopping off for a swim & some food along the way. 
There are lots of other trips available, but maybe too far..
Wherever you choose, have a great time  Big smile

Hello, have you booked yet? We were also sailing around at Easter. It was a lovely time of year to visit...can't wait for this years celebrations. Corfu town is where all the fireworks & pot smashing happens but all over Corfu you will see celebrations going on. We were in Paxos on the Friday in Lakka bay...there was a wonderful procession of church goers with candles came down past Harbour Lights bar at midnight. We were in a small fishing village on Sunday Petriti & even there there was a big procession where all the fishing boats were blessed. Everyone made us feel so welcome and the smell of lamb all day was just amazing!

I went on that boat trip in the summer and it was the best boat trip I have ever been on (and I've been on a lot) Nouris and his English wife were the best hosts, the lunch was all fresh from their garden, even homemade taramasalata, their own olive oil as well. When we arrived at the Panorama it was unbelievable, like a tropical paradise island as you said, but what I couldn't believe was I have cycled to Notos and had lunch at the other taverna which has the beach to the left and didn't even realise what was at the other side!
We stopped at Petriti and two other swimming stops as well, definitely do it again next year as I go to Messonghi every summer.
Stayed At Evridiki Apartments this year, if you wanted to stay nearer to Messonghi but in a lovely quiet location these apartments are great by the way.

You could try the walk to Boukari end of road turn left and keep going! past Eleana's all along the coast road are quite a few taverna's and if you are really keen carry on to Petriti a lovely fishing village with 7/8 tavernas on the beach/port then get a taxi back. I've stayed at Kerkyra on a number of time and always great.

Hello, may I suggest that the taxi will take you to Kouspades (no tavernas there), and if you want you can either walk down the hill to Petriti lots of tavernas there on the beach/port, then taxi back to Messonghi, or just walk back down the hill to Boukari, either way I'm sure you will enjoy! Petriti is my favourite village been going there for 25+ years

Hi all if you go up the hill to Kouspades there are 2/3 mini markets, 1 behind the church with a small square there is only one church. As you get to the top of the hill turn left to Petriti and at the X roads right hand side is a small market, you can also have a beer and sit outside.

If you walk up the hill from Boukari you will get to Kouspades a very quiet hill vilage the shop at the cross roads sells beer you can sit outside and just watch.Also if you go down the hill it will lead you to Petriti 7/8 tavernas in the harbour/beach area, then walk along the coast road back to Boukari.

The walk from Boukari is about 1/2 hours depending on how fast you walk and also how many bars you might stop at? It is a nice walk on the sea road, I've done it many times, sometimes all day walk! Especially if  I carry on to Petriti then a taxi back.

Thanks for the advice - approximately how far is the walk and how long would it take on average?  It is the sort of thing we are hoping to be able to do, also to Petriti and possibly up to the hillside villages.  Do you know it this is reasonable or too amibitious?

Petriti will suit you if you want somewhere quiet, and really Greek.  It is also flat.
It is a genuine fishing village with enough good seaside tavernas (hope you like fish) and some very pleasant bars too.  You will be quite safe- noone here will even have heard of the tradition of meat and 2 veg. for Sunday lunch, more likely a freshly caught sole and salad! 
re the airport, nowhere on Corfu is that far from the airport- longest drive (direct) would be the north coast- Roda, Acharavi etc. but as this is the more commercialised part I don't think you would want that anyway.

Just back from a week down South (near Petriti). Temp's were lower than we would have liked (didn't need the air con in our villa) but we were on the beach or round the pool or at Aqualand every day and got a bit pink doing it so it wasn't too bad.
 
However, the rain on Sunday morning was quite something. The Lefkimmi road was as a river for most of the way and the water on the road into the airport was almost over the wheels of the hire car!

The hill to Kouspades is rather steep and in the midday sun it can be sometimes exhausting? That's why I stop at the little shop on the top for a cold Amstel. When you get to the top turn left and walk to the x roads and you will find it then down to Petriti.

I totally agree Corfusun, for those who haven't been to Messonghi they should give it a visit. This summer will be our 5th time. Although I am a bit cheeky and go to San Stefanos for a week then Arillas another week this year then 8 days in Messonghi.
I like to sample all that Corfu has to offer! But always end up in Messonghi for the last bit, it's my favourite beach for swimming at and I love the coast road right round to Petriti and Notos by bycicle.

KaznDave I've walked from Messonghi to Petriti along the coast road about 1-2 hours depending on how many tavernas/bars you will stop at, too many to name! Also at the corner Boukari I turn right and sometimes walk up the hill to Kouspades, it is a great hill village with a small square and church, there is a shop where you can get a drink, but I always stop at a shop for a quiet drink on the right hand side at the top of the "hill" the tranquility is just something! Before you walk/drive down the hill to Petriti, just enjoy every minute.

Yassas!

Thank you all for your excellent suggestions, we can't wait to get there.

I think, until I'm sitting on the balcony of our room, eating olives and drinking ouzo/wine/retsina, looking out over the fabulous view, I won't believe it. The place just looks too good to be true.

We are definitely planning on walking along the beach into Petriti, I'm not sure how far it is or whether it's a good idea in the hot sun (Hot sun? What's that?) but we will just take it easy and see what happens.

Hope life is being kind to you all xx

I would head south and have lunch at Boukari before going onto Petriti for the evening (a diversion up to Chlomos for a drink in one of the most beautiful villages with stunning views might be a good idea. Stay 2 nights in Petriti and from there you can explore the fantastic beach of the south west coast and the wetlands area at Lefkimi.
Then leave Petriti and drive via Agios Mattheos to Agios Gordios, and Pelekas and on to Paleocastritsa.
I would only stay one night there, but visit the monastery in the evening.
Next day go north stopping to visit Angelocastro and then stay on Agios Georgios Pagi for a couple of nights so you can explore the north west (Afionas area). 
I would then head across to the  north east, visit Perithia, and stay three nights in Kassiopi to explore Perithia and the Pantocrator villages, also hire a boat one day and go down the coast finding one of the beautiful little coves to have to yourselves!

Amen to the Petriti tip, Gerry. Can't wait to get back to Apaggio's, he took us out in his boat last time we were there (as a thank you for eating at his restaurant more-than-once, I think!). And, whilst I prefer swimming in the Ionian (either at Notos or on the west coast at Santa Barbara or Gardenos), my kids love using the swimming pool at the Egrypos.
 
We often venture to Boukari for at least one of our evening meals and are particularly keen on The Fisherman's Haunt right at the Messonghi end, great place to watch the sun setting.
 
I would also recommend going up the hill to Chlomos (having said that it is pretty steep and I've never walked it, only driven!) - spectacular views, and Balis is one of my favourite eateries in the area.

Just a thought you could/should visit (if time prevails) Petriti for me my "spiritual home" It has 7 or so tavernas all around the harbour. Been going there 25 + years.
Enjoy you holiday down south.

Yes, maybe a bit more than 15 years, although I did say 'about'  I stand corrected. 
But I suggested Petriti because it is not a 'resort' as such and I got the impression from the original post that they wanted a Greek village with facilities, rather than a resort as such.

I would not recommend any of the above after looking at your list of likes and dislikes- I would look south- maybe Petriti- easy access to other places, delightful unspoilt fishing village- flat, excellent tavernas- no karaoke or similar bars- a real Greek paradise

Hi,
I think Lefkimi is a pretty good choice as it is a real town with plenty going on year round.  It is easy to get into Corfu Town from Lefkimi, there is a good bus service, and there are a few good bars and restaurants open in both summer and winter.  It's easy to get to both coasts from that part of the island and there are regular ferries to Igoumenitsa on the mainland.

Direct flights to Corfu start in March this year.  Ryanair and Easyjet usually start pretty early and finish quite late (November last year and the year before).
The rest of the year, you can fly either via Athens or Thessaloniki.  

South Corfu has some really beautiful places to visit, some often overlooked.  Boukari and Petriti have lovely fish restaurants and are easy to visit from Lefkimi.  Lots of great beaches too.

David1 I am also a little "dissapointed" as it is not only/all "Kensington-On-Sea", but I hope it will focus on the small hill villages and places like Petriti, Lefkimi and the ex-pats living there and why people like me keep going back! Still I will be watching the other episodes.

Hi Carolox & Gerry P
 
The first place I went to in Corfu was Kassiopi 23 years ago when my children were small, it was a tiny quiet little place then. We then went to other Greek islands and 3 years ago decided to go back to Corfu and booked Messonghi. From the moment we arrived we just loved the place. We go to Petriti usually and have some lunch etc it is lovely. Always walk to Psaras for lunch & would love to do Chlomos but unfortunately my knee wont allow it. I did see a difference in Messonghi this year on the beach there was a lot more sunbeds but it was very clean and still peaceful. We like Dyonisos & Minores Taverna, also Korali just off the beach but have tried most of them and never had a bad meal yet. Any suggestions & tips welcome...
 
Cheers

Messonghi is also my "favorite" place, I stayed in rooms upstairs Bacchus October this year as have done in the past I've also stayed at KIH twice and will do so in 2014. But my real preference is Petriti as have been going/stayed for 25+ years I know most of the villagers and Stamitis what a character he is! I suppose it is the "first" place you visit in Corfu and nearly always gravitate to, all the time, so it becomes your favorite place? But hey I like the whole island anyway.

Messonghi is my favorite place too, we always stay ay Kerkyra Island just outside on the road to Boukari, 2013 will be my 5th time. I love the walk along the coast into the village and cycling the other direction to Petriti and Notos, then there is the hill walks up to Chlomos and the boat trips from the river, easy bus ride to Corfu Town...perfect really.
What is the contact number for the bungalows by the way?
Another good website to look for accommodation is Next Travel Messonghi, they have an office just up the road on the way out near Galini Apartments.

(at) Alecko, you do not know what you are missing by not visiting the south of the Island. There are some lovely villages, and marvelous beaches, including Marathia/Santa Barbara which merge into each other. 2 kms of sandy beach with about 6 tavernas on and lovely sea to swim in.
 
Benitses, which is also close to the Achilleon Palace, has a lot to offer and has thankfully lost it's reputation for hooliganism which it had in the 80's. It is a lovely fishing village with a marina, and a walk into the old village to soak up the atmosphere is a must.
 
Further south there is also Petriti, Boukari, Vitalades, Lefkimi which are all worth a visit and not one bit commercialised.
 
PLEASE, please, please, have a look to the south. So many people say they have seen all of Corfu, but we have been visiting for 37 years, and make a point of finding somewhere different each year.
 
I can assure you that there is life south of Corfu town.

Mirador, I have driven from Mesoghi to Halikounas and would think it would be too far to hike in the heat. Biking should be possible, the territory is pretty flat. Or you could get a taxi. I second the recommendation to go to Petriti, it's a pleasant beach with good restaurants. 

I would also strongly urge you to take the bus up to Corfu town if you've never been. Even if you just spend your time wandering in the old town and having a coffee in a Liston cafe, and don't get to any of the museums or churches, it's charming and well worth the trouble it takes to get there.

A number of boats do various trips from the Messonghi river, the one I've been on many times is Nick the Greek (blue boat) one of the "larger ones" but they all do various trips so you take your choice? There are too many places/taverna's to mention here, but if you hire a car you could drive down the coast road to Boukari, Petriti etc. again they have good tavernas. Petriti is a small quiet fishing village and worth the trip. As I said too many places/taverna's to mention, but you will have a great time I'm sure

[QUOTE=Barrie]Where would you go in the south of Corfu [/QUOTE]
 
Boukari and Petriti are both very laid back, we found the prices cheaper than the North of the island. Smile

Hi TinaB, yes my flight ex B'ham was originally 09.00 but now 18.10!! I hope this not going to be a Sky Wings debacle? I'll lose a day's holiday from my allocation at the office and also half a day in Petriti!! With two boys 10 and 4, it's going to be a long night arriving at 23.30 Corfu time then the usual wait for cases and transfers! I can handle it but the boys and Sue? I wish there was better legislation "sale of goods act" this 12 hour thing is no good!!!
