Halkios

 
Halkios, ChiosHalkios is on the Southeast part of central Chios island and in the middle of Kampochora. It’s the center of the Municipality after the joining of seven villages. It is located about 8.5 kilometers away form the town of Chios. From the East it is near Vassileoniko, from the West it is adjacent to Ververato, from the North to the mountain Korakari, from the South to Vavili and Neohori and from the Southwest with Zifia. On your way up to the mountain where Aghios Georgios village is located, your sight lies beyond Halkios to Kampochora, Thimiana and Tholopotami.
The village Halkios is the biggest of all the villages of the Municipality. It has a population of 906 citizens (1991 census) and the cultivating land covers 3,9 square kilometers, without the big extents of pasture-ground of Korakari, Misovouno and Mili.
 
Town Hall of Halkios, ChiosHalkios was always characterized as "Kefalochori" (=rich and big village), with a rich agricultural production of cereals, crops, gardening products, citrus trees, olive oil, almonds, and the famous beans from Halkios. There was a production of wine and tobacco in the past, but not anymore.
The Town Hall is located on the main external road of Halkios, since it is in the center of the Municipality of Kampochora. The Municipal School Center, on the main external road of Halkios which is at the place of the old Fliskion School for Girls, is a five-teacher-school. Students from other villages of the Municipality also study in this school, except for the ones from Ververato and Vavili that have their own single-teacher schools. The Nursery School of Kampochora is also located in Halkios, and it is housed under the rooms of the Town Hall.
