General information

Spotted amidst the mountainsides in southern Corfu, Chlomos is a small-sized traditional village worthy of a visit! Built during the 13th century, the name Chlomos is said to have originated from either a fish-catching plant or a plethora of sick, pale-faced village residents during the early 19th century. Its altitude is between 270 and 320 meters above sea level, meaning that anyone can enjoy panoramic views over the nearby villages and the Ionian Sea from a wide variety of spots!

All traditional house designs are centered around Venetian-style architecture, whereas the old, paved alleyways also feature plenty of beautiful flowers and plants! Spot the 15th-century mansion that used to be a residence of Thomas Paleologos, a brother of the legendary Byzantine emperor Constantine Paleologos, or an array of old temples and emblematic church buildings, such as the church of Archangels and the church of Pantokrator!

Furthermore, visitors will pass by a handful of cafeterias and taverns, all of which offer meals accompanied by fantastic inland views. On top of that, a good time to visit Chlomos is during its annual fest, which takes place on August 23rd!
