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?
 

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!!

Corfus strange yet fun tradition of smashing pots on Holy Saturday

Greeks seem to have an obsession with smashing pots! Opa! In Corfu, there is an old tradition that is near and dear to my hear called Botides. This is when people smash pots filled with water from their windows and balconies on Holy Saturday. In the Greek Orthodox religion, Holy Saturday is when the first resurrection, when Christ brought salvation to the dead. The tradition of Botides is most popular in Corfu, but can also be seen in other parts of Greece.


Nissaki beach is a must visit in Corfu!

Nissaki beach is amazing! It is a small secluded beach that has very clear blue water and white smooth sand with small pebbles. I really recommend it for anyone that is interested in a quieter beach. I do recommend going earlier in the morning to reserve a beach chair, as you can see there aren't many chairs so they fill up quickly. There is also parking right above the beach, but it will also fill up pretty quickly.

Corfu is getting a new marina

Im so happy to hear this news! The island announced that it will be building a much needed new marina. The tourism minister said that "the number of arrivals to Corfu in July increased by 19.7 percent over the same month in 2019 despite the global challenges" which is great. The marina will help manage the increasing flow of tourism and any other imports. If you want to learn more, check out this article.

What is the weather like in Corfu during the winter?

I am thinking of visiting some friends for New Year's in Corfu this winter, but I have no experience with travelling to Greece outside of the summertime. What is it like in Corfu during December and January? I know that lately there have been a lot of changes to the weather and Greece has seen a lot more snow. What hasn't been like so far this year? And does anyone have any predictions for the rest of the season? I would really appreciate hearing a first hand account, thanks!
