Corfu off the beaten track turned out to be extremely relaxing. Who would have thought that there wouldn’t be any signal at our apartment? Other people pay for that and we had it included at Angeliki apartment. The south of Corfu is still mostly devoid of mass tourism, the beaches are wonderful (some more than others), and the food delicious. Really, it can’t get much better than a vacation on Corfu with its mix of culture and nature.
Quite quickly we decided that this is an island which needs to be explored in full. And that cannot be done within a week , if you want to have some beach time as well. So here we go: Corfu, you will see us again! We had a great vacation! Yours, Pollybert
On the way to the Achilleion palace we passed through Benitsai. We stopped because this small village had some old aqueduct, which was not worth seeing. But Benitsai itself looked very nice and is for sure a pleasant vacation spot.
After the disappointment of the closed Achilleion, we got coffee and juice at a nearby place. A pair of swallows sat inside and kept watch.
While we sat and drank coffee we enjoyed the view over Corfu. Basically this is what Sisi was seeing more than a century ago, minus a couple of houses.
Greece equals summer vacation equals sun downer. What’s better than ouzo while in Greece?
The beach near Lake Korission was completely natural. Unfortunately also no shade. So even though the sand looked nice, I prefer some shade and a place nearby for drinks.
