    Historic Vido Island near Corfu

    by apekovic Written Jan 1, 2008

    Favorite thing: During the First World War, the island served as a refuge for the Serbian army that retreated there on allied forces' ships from a homeland occupied by the Austrians and Bulgarians. During their stay, a large portion of Serbian soldiers died from exhaustion, food shortage, and different diseases. Most of their remains were buried at sea near the island of Vido, a small island at the mouth of Corfu port, and a monument of thanks to the Greek Nation has been erected at Vido by the grateful Serbs; consequently, the waters around Vido island are known by the Serbian people as the Blue Graveyard (in Serbian, Plava Grobnica), after a poem written by Milutin Bojic after World War I.

    Fondest memory: For Serbian people, even after all this years, Vido Island and Corfu are very close to us and great Corfiots are like brothers. Together they wrote some of the most important pages of our history.

    Arillas

    by zizkov Updated Jun 6, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Arillas was the small village/resort I stayed at, situated in NW Corfu, at almost the extreme point. It would not suit party animals, but if you want somewhere a lot more Greek than the main resorts, friendly, relaxed, but still with a range of facilities, and places to eat and drink (and not hilly!), then it is an ideal choice.

    Intend to post a bit more about Arillas itself in time: meanwhile, some pictures ;-)

    See this website for info, accommodation, more picture, and a forum: www.arillas.com

    The old town

    by JulesH Updated Jul 24, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Visit the old towns of any town or village. Beyond the tourist accomodation areas, there will always be a residential area hidden away like another world.

    Fondest memory: The old town in the village of Moratika where we stayed on Corfu had a tiny port surrounded by little picturesque shacks serving seafood. It was free from tourist trinkets for sale and, in fact, from tourists!! I remember walking through the village and smelling the Jasmine wafting through the summer night.

    The Durrell's heritage

    by SirRichard Written Sep 13, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you have read some of Gerald Durrell's books (My family and other animals, Birds, Beasts and Relatives and The Garden of the Gods ), you can follow his steps and identify some of the landscapes he superbly describes in those books, though is not an easy task, as there is not much info about that in the island.

    You can find some info about those places in the Internet, though most of the villas are privatly owned, so they can't be visited. But the landscapes, specially around Perama are mostly intact.

    The Corfu bay

    by SirRichard Written Sep 13, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Corfu bay is the first sight you have of the capital when you arrive by ferry. If you come from the south (I arrived in the hydrofoil from Kefallonia) you will see the silhouette of the Fortress and the skyline of the tall venetian houses, a very typical view of the place.

    An island in the Ionian Sea

    by SirRichard Written Sep 13, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Corfu island is the northernmost of the big Ionian Islands, and is on the way the ferries do from Italy to Greece, so is the first part of Greece you see coming from Italy. In fact is a kind of transition between the 2 countries, as it's got some visible influences of its venetian past.
    I first visited it as a stop of the ferry in an InterRail trip around Europe, but stayed just 1 day at the capital. In 2004 I stayed a little longer and was able to visit the island and even cross to Albania, which is so close that can be seen from the north of the island.

    AHOY THERE CAPTAIN SLOG

    by BerniShand Written Sep 7, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: We sometimes call my husband Captain Slog (as in Star Trek, `captain`s log,`) because he has a thing about boats, and when we hired a little cruiser for the day he was in his element as you can see from the photograph. Hiring a boat is cheap and a great day out.

    Fondest memory: I didnt have much luck getting him to let me drive, so I sat with my feet over the side and the waves gave me the best foot massage I have ever had, of course when hubby heard my moans of bliss he wanted a go too, and at last I was given the chance of a turn behind the wheel

    AVOIDING THE NIGHTCLUBS

    by BerniShand Written Sep 7, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I was a little worried before we went that we would end up in a clubbers paradise, but we wandered around on our scooter and avoided the places we didnt like..... and Corfu was so beautiful, the roads inland were very quiet, the sun shone and we found small out of the way peaceful places

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory is of just getting on the scooter and riding around, tiny villages and friendly people made our holiday perfect..... and we never went near a nightclub

    not exactly rush hour here...
