Explore the beautiful Kambos area south of Chios town. Best way is to rent a bike to do so and depart early in the morning. When you do, you should definitely visit the Citrus Estate where you could see an original Kambos villa, a small operational citrus fruit plantation, a small museum where you will lear a lot about the...

For a Greek living abroad, walking through the Citrus Estate was a mixed experience. Here, one can see what Greeks were able to achieve in the past, before decades of easy money from the EU turned us into the personified crisis. The estate has been restored to its old glory with love and attention to the details. The small but... More

i was impressed with Kampos area- high walls of colourful red and gold stones. i took a blue bus the long way round to the airport, and as we negotiated the narrow main road through Kampos i was able to see a little of what was behind the walls- huge homes and lots of citrus trees. there are numerous winding...

This is an amazing place. You can buy high quality citrus jams, sweets and gum mastic from the shop.( we went back twice) The museum gives a clear understanding of the importance of this area over 100 years ago. The garden is cool and shady- lovely for a short stroll. The coffee shop has wonderful delicacies such as orange pie.... More

Charming little Kampos estate and and a very informative museum describing the Kampos area and the families that built it. We were there when the oranges were ripe and the fresh juice was exceptional!

It is an old mansion situated in Kampos area. It is from one side a nice museum indoors and outdoors that describes the commerce of citrus species. The museum also has a very cosy café with a beautiful garden. Finally, the shop of the museum has many original greek fruit sweets("spoon sweets") and marmelades perfect for presents.

our landlady recommended a visit to this unusual "shrine" for the citrus industry on Chios. It may sound a bit quirky but the Citrus "museum" is a fascinating place. It is a peaceful haven which traces the history of the important citrus industry on the island. It has a shop/ café where you can purchase/ sample their products. Well worth... More
