This circular walk is led by Brian and Carolyn Pattenden and is followed by the AGM and Buffet Meze at the Galini Taverna, Pyrgos.

 

The start and finish point of the ramble is in Moni Village. We will then leave in convoy to the Galini Taverna in Pyrgos following the walk.

 

Meet: 09.15 for a 09.30 start.

 

The walk, which is mostly new, is mainly on quiet country gravel/dirt roads and has a couple of gentle ascents.

 

We start by walking through Moni village up a short steep hill into open country side. We pass a smelly chicken farm and continue on a fairly flat dirt road. We have added a nice loop here on the north side of Monagrouli village. There are nice views from here. We pass another farm, this one being a pig farm.

The dirt road leads us to Monagrouli Village where we will stop to look at the Church. There is a public toilet here. As we make our way back to Moni there are some nice views of the sea in the distance.

 

We will drive the 2 miles in convoy to the Galini, Pyrgos for well-earned refreshments and the AGM which will start at approximately 1200

 

Buffet Mezze 13. Please book the Meze when booking the walk walks.coord@gmail.com; would you kindly bring the correct change which will be collected at the Ghalini .
