WHERE TO GO
as alternatives very close to the apartments,at a distance of 3 km is the Moraitika area in which all residents can find super market, restaurants and bar- clubs ,butcher (in the house garden barbecue is available for cooking, etc.)
At Moraitika there is a also a health center as exists in Lefkimi area which is a little further and particularly 15 minutes distance.
Hikers come around the time because there are designated paths over the house that lead to two small chapels where the view is spectacular because you see the sea in combination with the mountain.
The location is near some of the best beaches in Corfu and easily accessible to Kerkyra (Corfu Town) and well away from the package resorts.

Ferries arrive daily from mainland Greece and from several ports in Italy.
Once you arrive to the island, there are several ways to get to stroggili.
I can offer airport or port pick up upon request.
We recommend to rent a car or motorbike.
You can rent a car (about 160 € a week) and have it delivered to you at the airport. The drive from the Airport to stroggili takes about 25-30 minutes.
There are regular buses to the island capital, Corfu Town, which is about 20 kilometres away,with very low cost.
Getting lost in the labyrinthine Campiello, or old town, is all part of the fun here. And this is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, complete with museums, churches and a 16th-century fortress.
Sooner or later you’ll end up at the Liston, an Italian-style colonnade lined with fancy cafés
the area that the bus is coming is 5 minutes walk from the house.
