About the neighbourhood
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 (having been 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. WALKING-BICYCLING 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. BEACHES The location is near some of the best beaches in Corfu and easily accessible to Kerkyra (Corfu Town) and well away from the pack
Getting around
TRANSPOTATION 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. By Car We recommend to rent a car or motorbike.
