The Sunset taverna, best views on Corfu. Book an excursion through Cosmic excursions and tell them what you are doing and they may be abel to organize a little something special as well.

Maybe for the proposal you need somewhere for just the two of you, then go to one of the restaurants mentioned to celebrate.

Another romantic location is the rooftop bar of the Cavalieri Hotel in Corfu Town.  Heart
Fabulous 360 degree views over the town and coast.

Agree that the rooftop bar in the Cavalieri is fabulous. How about the early evening boat taxi from Kassiopi to Corfu town - presuming the response is 'yes' the boat back late evening would be very romantic.

Maybe yes, Corfu is so romantic and enchanting place by itself and I think there would be no lack of suitable places! And dozens of tavernas and bars with fabulous atmosphere and views... mmm. The choice is really stunning. Looking forward to landing on the island Wink

Reading Gerald Durrell now and falling in love with Corfu HeartAnd my girl loved it much more earlier — "My Family and Other Animals" is her favourite book. This travel is her dream coming true.

Boat trip is also a must I think because we both adore the seaSmile

If you love Gerald Durrell what about the White House at Kalami. Been a few years sine I went but it used to do lovely food and seen as that is where he lived would that not be the perfect setting looking over the sea at Kalami

Kmiddlemiss, the White House is also a lovely place, thanks!) Point is that we are limited a little in our movement around the island as we won't rent a car and local buses will be the only option Embarrassed

If you like the idea of a boat into corfu town for the evening suggest you email Iakis on info(at)dailycruisescorfu.com. He operates an evening service on Tueday and Thursday evenings and if you tell him of your intentions am sure he could arrange for champagne for the return journey which would be wonderful. He leaves Kassiopi at 5ish and returns around 10 oclock. Good luck xx

Also meant to say that am sure Daria and Tassos at The White House could arrange for a boat for you if you mail them and explain the reasons. Whichever option you choose please let us know the outcome.

THE ANSWER WAS "YES"!!!

I'm really happy!!!Heart And here is a little report of this day as was promised Wink

I tried to create romantic atmosphere all day long. The morning started with a bunch of flowers.

N.B. I had no idea that it's such a problem to get fresh flowers in Kassiopi! The hotel manager Andreas helped me to order a delivery from Sidari (!) where the nearest flower shop is.

Then we hopped on the bus and went to Canal d'Amour in Sidari. We were a little bit disappointed first when we saw it, but it turned up to be the "old" big Canal ruined by sea. Locals showed that very Canal d'Amour and we loved its turquoise waters, marvelous sandstone rocks and caves. So we spend a nice time swimming, tanning, sitting on the juts above the water and climbing uphill to enjoy breathtaking panoramas from there. So after a light snack got the bus back to Kassiopi.

That Very Place was chosen at the ruins of the Fortress on the hill. We walked there day before and a sunset view was stunning and so romantic indeed! Besides it was not long climb (though little bit steep) as our hotel stands right by the wall of the Fortress. So we decided to go there once more and this fitted my plans)

Need to say that She had no idea about anything until the moment when we were standing on the stones of the wall and I kneeled saying "Would you marry me?" and putting ring on her finger. That was a moment of real happiness and joy and it's hard to depict by words! She said "Da, da, da!!!" ("Yes, yes, yes!!!") She dreamed of this so long indeed and now dream came true.

Then we walked down the hill to the restaurant to celebrate the engagement. Choosing from dozen places recommended in this thread I finally stopped at the very first variant. Manager Andreas was helpful to reserve the table in To Kyma restaurant. And though some mess with the dates happened (they waited us a day before) nevertheless the romantic dinner was great: delicate dishes and fine Greek wine.

It was an unforgettable day and I'm so thankful to all of you who helped with advices and supported me in this undertaking!!!Hug

Corfu and particularly Kassiopi stays in our loving hearts as the most beautiful and romantic place in the world where dreams come true!Heart

Alex

SusieH, can't say anything exactly yet. Wedding is such a difficult and expensive event to organize, you know! Embarrassed

But we've already found the hotel on Corfu suitable for a honeymoonWink
