Slow down and smell the citrus gardens! Featured

Citrus Estate Chios Tourism Department Citrus Estate

Kampos is one of the most distinctive areas in Chios. It is a unique residential complex, where the natural environment is in total harmony with the local architecture. Touring by bicycle is an ideal way to explore this hidden paradise.

Bike through narrow quiet streets, sweet-smelling citrus groves, high stone walls and beautiful historical mansions. Discover picturesque chapels and huge garden doors. Slow down and enjoy the surrounding landscape and have in mind that some of the estates are open to the public, giving the visitor the chance to experience first hand the beauties that are hidden by the high stone walls: imposing mansions, patterned pebbled yards, elaborate wells and cisterns.

Stop at the Citrus estate (9-11 Argenti Str. Kampos,), a stunning expanse that dates from 1742, that is also home to a museum dedicated to the area’s history and learn about the fascinating past and exciting future of Kampos’ citrus tradition. Have a rest at the estate’s café where you can try citrus juices and traditional sweets. Kampos area is flat so beginners can also enjoy the ride. You can organise the tour yourself (be sure you have a map on you - plus there are signs with maps to help you) or you can take part at a biking tour of a local agency.If you need any help just get in touch with us.
