food and drink are a tradition and local tastes and recipes have remained undiluted in the passage of time. You must bear in mind that Messolonghi is renowned for the exquisite taste of the fish from its Lagoon (they are considered the most tasteful fish in Greece), the unique in the world “Fish Roe of Messolonghi
” and its high quality natural salt
We offer our guests a basket with fresh organic fruits when they arrive as a welcome gift and wish them to spend beautiful and carefree holidays at Socrates Organic Village Αgrilia! All bungalows have the necessary utensils and equipment for preparing meals. You can make breakfast and other delicious meals in the fully equipped and cosy kitchen of “your home” at your leisure and as to your taste.
We provide some of the key ingredients for the meals and snacks you will prepare “at home”, such as tea, coffee, sugar, potable water, organic oil from our own olive trees and natural salt from Messolonghi Lagoon. You can also use the organic seasonal fruits and vegetables growing in the communal organic garden of the farm as well as fresh eggs from the organically grown chicken of the farm, at no extra charge!
You must procure all other foodstuff yourselves. There are many shops, bakeries and supermarkets at a distance of 2-4 km. from the farm, where you can buy all necessary ingredients to prepare your meals. If you are interested, we can also inform you on where to buy local organic products.
You may also explore the culinary microcosm of the area. Messolonghi has its fair number of picturesque fish-tavernas, traditional small restaurants serving appetizers with ouzo (“ouzopolia”) as well as classy restaurants for that special night out, all filled with patrons lending a special aura to the area. You will get the chance to experience unique tastes, such as fish roe, eel, grilled “petalia” (a dish prepared from sun-dried and salted sea-bream), dry salt fish and many others.
- Seafood meal in a traditional “pelada” (fisherman's house) floating over the water in the Lagoon of Messolonghi.
- “BBQ” with grilled fish on the beach just after fishing or canoeing
The choice is yours!
