AGROTOURISM IN CHIOS ISLAND

1. The Agrotourism Co-operative
.
The Women's Agricultural Tourism Co-operative of Southern Chios was established in 1985, on four of the Mastic villages in the southern part of the island.
.
On the villages Armolia, Pyrgi, Olympoi, and Mesta, the co-operative has today 63 rooms with 135 beds. The houses of the members have been converted to comfortably accommodate visitors and they have separate (or common for two rooms) bathroom. Most of the rooms are traditional and  they are all equipped with living-room, kitchen, and balcony or small yard.
.
Breakfast and meals are served to the visitors who wish to try the local cuisine and the home-made food.
.
The women farmers give the alternative solution against the mass tourism, by offering to the visitor the chance to spend a few days in a quiet and idyllic environment; the opportunity to rest next to the openhearted people of the villages and enjoy their hospitality.
