This place used to be the richest village on the entire island on the entire island, but today there are only empty houses and churches left with no inhabitants. Super eery but great for a visit to see how people once lived. check it out!

When we last visited there was a taverna and a small gift shop/museum. It was such a beautiful village.

Wow...I can't imagine such a small village that it only has those who things. So you recommend visiting?

As the OP said, nothing remains but the remnants of houses, church, and maybe the school? It’s been many years since we’ve been there - but yes! If you are renting a car, exploration of the island’s villages is a must.

Yes, you will definitely need a car to get there

As much as I love spending the night and walking around beautiful Corfu Town, you would really be missing something if you didn’t explore the rest of the island - quite easy to do on day trips with a rental car. Otherwise you can take the buses to various beaches, but the car gives you more freedom. Try a local company (not the big names) so you csn negotiate a better rate.

Greek "ghost towns" are very eerie but cool to visit! Do we know what happened to all the people?
 

Beautiful Easter ceremonies on the island of Corfu

For Greeks all over the country, Easter is a very special time to be with family and celebrate with your entire community. There are so many special traditions in all of the unique pockets and areas of Greece...these are some traditions that you will see on the island of Corfu. They are so beautiful, and I would love the opportunity to visit the island during the holidays. Are there any other islands that are a must visit during easter?


Visit the best restaurants in Corfu, Greece

These are for sure some of the best restaurants in Corfu, in no particular order of course!

Oinos kai Geuseis
Anthos
The Venetian Well
La Tavolda Calda
Taverna Diporto

You must try sofrito when visiting Corfu

Sofrito is one of Greece's best regional dishes! The recipe consists of a sauce made from parsley and spices that are used to marinade veal. The dish is a stew, which is super popular in Greece although most stews are called "kokinista" which are stews with tomato sauce. This stew is one of the few in Greece that is not made from a red sauce which is why you should really try it when you're visiting Corfu!!

Check out Casa Parlente in Corfu

This is one of the best places to visit when in Corfu! I highly recommend visiting this 19th century mansion that shows you history in a super unique way. The museum has animatronic figures inside, so it can be a little creepy lol. I don't recommend taking small children to visit, they might get spooked. The museum is right by the water so its great for a short visit and then a stroll

Horseback riding in Corfu!

This is from a trip we took a while back!! We got to take the horses up and round the mountain. I miss vacations like these
