    Posted: 30 Sep 2012 at 12:34am
Hi All,
 
I have been going to Corfu for 25 years now and I can't believe the lack of information about the Corfu Villages.
 
So, Last year I decided to research and write an ebook about Corfu's beautiful villages.
 
All the villages in the book I have visited myself and all the photographs I have taken myself.
 
It has took a lot of time and effort but I feel it will all be worth it when the book is released.
 
In a couple of weeks time I will release a "taster" from my own village of Pelekas to give you and idea of how it will look. This will probably be a free pdf download.
 
I hope to complete the book in November and this will be available on Amazon to buy at a small charge. I hope to donate most of the profit to a Corfu Charity.
 
Kind Regards, Stevie. Smile

Looking forward to reading the sample, especially as we have been visiting for 37 years and each year we visit we try to find somewhere new to visit. We haven't failed yet, and are sure there will be more places.
 
Well done regarding the charity too.

Thanks Lymmbo,
 
37 years! You beat me by 12!
 
Yes, everytime I go to Corfu I find something new, I call it the little big Island there is so much there.

There certainly is Steve and far more than the coastal villages too. Loads of hidden places. Hope the book comes out soon, then I can digest it before our next visit so that we will have loads of new places to investigate.
 
Corfu has seen some changes since 1976, but the people don't change and they are the most important charm of Corfu I believe.

That is the beauty of the inland villages, they are virtually unchanged unlike the resorts which have seen many changes over the years.
 
I thought I knew a bit about the villages but every time I visit I learn something new.
 
The beauty of an Ebook is it can be updated at anytime.

Hi All,

I have just seen a proof for the Cover of my Ebook and the first Village to be sampled.

I must say I think the design is fantastic! It should be ready to download next week just before I come out to Corfu for the last of my holidays.

Will keep you posted!

Really looking forward to it. Hope places like Chlomos and Perivola are in. People visiting Corfu tend to stick to the north and yet there are some lovely places in the south too.

Wonderful and Chlomos has as you say, got fabulous views. I just wish that more people from the north ventured south.

This is what the book is all about, giving people a glimpse of what Corfu is really like from the inside.
 
Hopefully it will encourage tourists and residents to venture inland and give some much needed revenue to the mostly poor villages.

Hi Lymmbo, this is a sample to the forthcoming release of the eBook out in a couple of weeks.

The first edition will contain around 20 villages and will be available to buy on Amazon for £2.99.

It will contain around 50 pages.

Profits will go to Corfu charities and villages.
