NEW :Wi-Fi and Walking in Central Corfu
I have flats to rent just restructured in a traditional house, at Corfù (Kerkyra), green and full of flowers island, located in the historical centre of one of the hundred most beautiful village of Greece: Sinarades. The area is also central for walking in the nature and in small villages.
A two floor-storey flat with an indoor staircase
Upper floor: double room with ceiling fan plus a small living room with two comfortable armchairs and a wonderful view on the roofs (for 2 people only)
First floor: bathroom with shower/hot water ; fully equipped kitchen with table for 4 people
To our guests we deliver a full list of facilities in and around Sinarades and how to get them (wild and equipped beaches ,swimming-pools, restaurants, amusements…) and for people who like walking we give information for a lot of walks in central Corfu (Sinarades area).
Sinarades has totally maintained its traditions, safeguarding its charm as regards its natural environment, too. A Greek corner untouched by tourist groups where it is still possible to live at old time rhythms, bathed in natural sounds. Not a village transformed into a tourist-commercial centre. A place of peace and relax, but you have some nice Greek bars and tabernas (restaurants) where a beer costs 1,5/2,5 €, a Greek salad 6/7€ and a normal meal 12/15€including drink , an internet cafè, a motorbike rent point where you can rent a motorbike for 2 from 100€ per week or a quad for 2 from 190€ per week. Quad is a very popular way for tourists for moving around the island. Generally speaking prices are a lot lower than in most Europe.
For people that like hiking, beautiful pathways offer unique experiences with astonishing panoramic views. We have also a guide-book for walks in central Corfu (Sinarades area) easy to medium walks.
In Sinarades there are food shops , a pharmacy and an ambulatory where they understand English and Italian, a public phone and a bus stop to the beach or to Corfù town. At Corfù island you do not have the Melteni wind and the climate in summer is dry.
Sinarades is located 200 meter high ; a little wind blows at sunset and at night it is a little cooler and dry. Sinarades is 300 metres in a bee line from the sea but by road is 2.5 km away. You can easily walk to the beach and come back by bus (to avoid the slope!). The beach is called Agios Gordis and it is 3/4 km long and mostly sandy. The first 400 meters have bars , restaurants and beach-umbrella but further it is completely free and wild. At Agios Gordis beach some bars have a swimming pool free for guests.
5/8/10 km from the village you can find other beaches and small bays with crystal-clear waters.
Corfù town (40.000 inhabitants) and the airport are 12 km away; here you can find elegant shops open at night, restaurants , pubs ,dancing clubs ,concert halls and nightlife, almost in an “old Venice ambience”.
At 6 km from our village you also have the 18 hole Corfù Golf Club and a horse riding club.
