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.

Gerry, think we called in there one year on a trip out with "Nick the Greek " from Messonghi, but not sure. Will make the effort to have a look there sometime!

Ah I remember "Nick the Greek (blue boat) that was a long time ago 30+ years when I went with him. Great days. If you do not have any transport then a taxi won't be to expensive? Also along the coast road there are a number of tavernas/bars where you can stop and have a drink and admire the view!

Just back from Messonghi yesterday, originally booked for June but had to cancel unfortunately, but managed to grab a week. One of the lovely things about Messonghi is that nothing ever changes too much. Same lovely people with a few new additions. Amazingly, after 6 years they all remembered me. In fact, I was well and truly told off by Victor's daughter Angela, demanding to know where I had been all this time! They have made a good job of the new Barino Bar, was pleasantly surprised. George looks well, and I do like the new look Timeout. Seaside Bar still popular, new faces running it for me but still so friendly, and I never get tired of that view! Stayed at the Aquarius which has a lovely pool area, so handy for everything and the staff are lovely. They seem to have sorted out the sunbed issues on the beach, and there were plenty available down by Seaside and To Meraki without feeling too overcrowded. The only thing about the beach though is the very poor state of the boardwalk after Seaside up to Christina, it was a bit hazardous in places and would be better taken away altogether rather than left as it is. I have read a lot about the rubbish issues on Corfu lately, was pleasantly surprised to find the village itself was spotless. Weather was very " hit & miss ", but mostly good. Clouds and cooler in the morning, but that gave me the chance to have a few pleasant walks without the heat of the afternoon, perfect!
All in all, a nice relaxing week and so glad I went.

Jackie
