Has anybody been out this season yet and can give up to date info on eating places, and is there a village bakery. I am just back from Halki, it was even quieter this year I felt. Now in 11 weeks head to Liapades for three weeks. My legs picturing  the hills but they will get used to it (I hope)

I got back from Liapades on 3rd of June, the day before the heavy rain. We had mixed weather for that time of year but very enjoyable for all the walking in that area.
I tried all the  eating places apart from The Cricketers, but did go to their Thursday Greek dancing night which was brilliant.
There was the little grill place on the way down towards the beach, Michales, Aparos fish taverna and the snacky type cafe all in the centre near the 2 supermarkets. Didn't have a favorite, they were all good, excellent value and really friendly people.
Also the Village taverna on the corner by the bus stop, and there is a bakery near there as well.
I think I spotted another bakery just going up the hill to the old village.
Kaytee will probably give you more information when she gets back and can log on as she was also there at the same time but for much longer.

Thanks Carol for that info, I was thinking for first visit I was rather silly booking 3 weeks, should have done two for a taster but all sounds good. I just want to get someplace I like without having to use a ferry and this resort looks ideal. I have had to use ferries every May and September for a few years, makes it a long day then the stress of hoping flight on time to catch ferry. We are looking forward to it, just hope now hills are not too bad, still I hear Metaxa helps for hills or was it ouzo? Gee I will take both to be on safe sideLOL

We love Liapades and have stayed at The Cricketers four times in eighteen months. Just back after four weeks. Yes it is very hilly but taken slowly it's not too much of a problem. It is very laid back, Don,t expect riotous night life, all the Tavernas have their own charm and as Carol says excellent value. Do try the Greek night on Thursday and Spiros has a great barbecue on a Monday night with music by the pool. Rovinia beach is worth the walk, no tavernas but a Butty boat calls with refreshments. Do go for coffee at the kafenion in the square funny Sharon and her Greek husband then walk up through the village into the olive groves, so peaceful just the sound of the birds and views across to Dukades. The local bus goes from the village taverns, just two euros into town, the timetable is on the bus shelter. Have coffee on the Liston and watch the world go by. Some great places to eat too many to mention in lovely squares and alleyways. If you need an M and S it's there on the road from the  bus park Rouvas taverna is just around the corner but get there early as it's well used by locals. I could go on for ever about the delights of Corfu but discover them for yourself but it's always great to get back to the peace of Liapades. We always come back fitter than when we went. Not perfect for everyone but it is for us.

Thanks Lili or Kaytee lol, sounds just what we are looking for, I have printed of all walks to beaches so will do them all. We are staying at Akis apartments they look very nice. It does sound laid back but I doubt if it is as quiet as Halki where we just returned from. I expect we will go to Greek night, there is nothing like that on Halki  but been to a few on other islands, yes even finished up in pool when dancing geez. Really I am just looking for nice quiet resort on an island thats easy to get too and this seems to tick all the boxes (walking poles definitely in the cases though)

Yes poles would be useful. I took my Leki stick but didn't use it this time. Limni beach path is a bit hard to find. Go more or less to the bottom of the concrete road, then take a path through the bushes, not waymarked on the right. Good luck. I looked at Halki but the journey put me off but definitely looks our sort of place. One day maybe. It was lovely to meet up with Carol and family and so glad she liked it on my recommendation, it's always a risk. It's one of those undiscovered places as most people probably want more action.

Definitely not looking for action, just quiet resort, beaches and walks and good food. I have been to Corfu a few times in different resorts including Paleo so think I can pictures the hills.Yes thats the problem with Halki the journey and thats why I am trying to find a place thats easy to get too, our trip to Halki in May was a bit rough at sea. We have been going there for two weeks at end Of May for last 8 years, do not think we have seen rain.We have booked Halki for next year already and hope that our stay in Liapades this year makes us want to return in the September, and follow up with more visits, we aint getting any younger so Liapades easier trip. lol
