Was in Curfu with hubby and our 2 boys (16 and 12) from 28th Aug to 5th Sep 2017.
Accommodation: we stayed at La Corfiota apartments. Very clean, obviously well-looked after apartments, and very comfortable. The owner, Kostas, is very friendly, gave us tips on where to go, to eat etc, and made us feel at home. The apartment has the basics needed for light cooking, and we like that it's very close to the beach (about 50meters), and yet somewhat secluded/private. Very close to shops and restaurants, the location was perfect for us.
Wi-fi did not work when we arrived but that was quickly sorted. Will definitely stay here again if we visit Corfu again (which is likely!).
Corfu: Ag. Gordios-
What a beautiful island!!! Lovely beach Ag. Gordios. Pretty flowers all around the narrow windy roads leading to the beach, and at night the fragrance of the night flower (Queen of the Night), filled the air. Simply lovely.
Be sure to eat at Alobar, which is right on the beach; Kostas suggested this place to us, we ate there on our last evening and wished we had tried this place sooner - very very good food, the best we had over there. Funky land restaurant also makes lovely club sandwiches.
Also, do visit Corfu town (hourly bus is €2.40 each way); lovely little town, nice shops, and the place really comes alive at night.
Weather was fab, a bit to warm on some afternoons, but altogether fabulous.
We've stayed at the resort of Adios Gordios before, so we knew the accommodation was in a superb location, close by the beach and right in the heart of the village. The apartment was first class, exactly as described, with beautiful terrace, where we ate breakfast and had drinks before heading off in an evening to the many restaurants in the village. You get fantastic sunsets from the tavernas along the beach! Kostas the owner is a great guy who can speak impeccable english and knows how to look after all his guests. If there is anything you need, he's on hand and will happily point out various places to visit on the island, as well as suggesting some lovely restaurants with wonderful views. Must mention his lovely dog Milo who wanders through the grounds and makes friends with all the guests. This is an excellent place to stay!
This place is a piece of delight, calm and fantastic enerdy of Corfu. We spend here two weeks and would like to come again and again. I can't forget the wonderful atmosphere of this place. It stands behind the restoran Posedonio and produces a comfortable space out of the views. It consists of a large garden on two levels. Each apparment has it's own private zone for the dinner where g can enjoy spending warm evenings with charming sounds of the sea. It took us 3 minutes to reach the well equipped beach, 5 minutes to the markets and several minutes to couple restorants. The host Kostas oganized everything for us with great attention and kindness. He put a part of his heart in this place. He gave us important recommends where to eat and what to see. Great Thanks for a wonderful special holidays!!!! We will come back!!!!!!
