yeh! someone who agrees with me, i have always gone to the south stayed in benitsis and moraitika before settling on the legend that is messonghi i love it and its a great base to vist places like st georges(gorg beach) or issos beach, the fab restaurants in boukari and the beautiful lefkimmi. The beach isn't oo busy and the restaurants and bars are brilliant all are different with something for everyone
I work in travel and all the tour ops concentrate on the north however the mayor of messonghi and moraitika is really trying to get more british ops in and is meeting a number of them in the winter. i have to book flights and then accom (the christina) which i know for me works out more expensive as i could go to the north with an operator for so much cheaper but i don't want to, although the north is lovely and some great resorts i prefer to go for day trips up there.
come on people give the south a try its the best!
on the airport - i spoke to a few people and there is no way they want it and i doubt it will happen as its no more than an hour to all resorts in the south anyway from corfu airport they just need to extend it!
