Before I start, this was a cheap holiday (14 nights) and flying from Norwich suited us fine. From start to finish I cannot complain as the Thomson reps were very helpful and the staff at the Olive Grove were very welcoming. Our apartment was simple and very spacious and a stones throw from the pool etc. The staff were all very friendly and always treated you as a regular soon remembering what drinks you preferred and always on hand for advice on where to go.
I will list a few tips for where to eat etc.
Olive Grove bar. No need to go far as the food at Olive Grove is very good and always freshly cooked.
Tex Mex. halfway down the main high street very good Mexican food in nice roof garden.
Churchill's. British pub grub excellent fish and chips short walk from Olive Grove towards main beach.
going the other way the Orchard Taverna does excellent Greek food and salads.
If you go to Kassiopi on day trip eat at the 3 brothers Taverna where the main street meets the harbour. Greek food at its best. and very lively staff.
Finally go and see Napoleon at the "1 for the road bar" in the high street best night out we found, this place is mad.
Places to see:
Kassiopi (on coach 5 euros for day),
Sunset beach and Drastis Cove, Long walk but if you hire a moped for 20 euros takes 10 minutes. Eat watching the sunset from the Panorama Restaurant, Be warned the staff here are grumpy at best but the view is worth it.
Go for a boat trip to 3 caves well worth it.
I loved our 14 day holiday and will be back next year there is so much to see and do. I love the Greek way of life the total lack of rules and regulations you get in the UK was a refreshing change. Due to the euro crisis at the moment things are dearer in Corfu than the UK so be careful with your spending money.
