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!!

I have never eaten or had this dish in Greece. I thought this was a Spanish origin dish? Or Italian? I guess since it is Corfu, that makes sense, since I believe the island had some Italy ties?
 

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.

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

Are there any hiking trails in Corfu?

Hiking while traveling is something that I am starting to do more and more, especially hiking to catch the sunset and sunrise. If anyone has any good recommendations on where I can go in Corfu to go hiking, I would really appreciate it. I have found that in traveling and hiking, there are many trails that are unmarked and can be a bit dangerous to hike. I personally prefer walking on trails that are marked and have clear pathways so that I don't get lost, especially in a foreign country. Thanks!

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!

Check out Agios Gordios beach in Corfu

Agios Gordios Beach is an award winning blue flag beach that is located on the western part of Corfu. It is very popular amongst families and all different types of tourists, and there are many different options for you to visit. Personally, I like to visit the organized beaches where there are beach lounge chairs and the option to order food and drinks. The water is pretty shallow so it's great for bringing small kids.
