Hello all and I am Linda and new to this site so please forgive any mishaps. We need a Greek island to go to after holidaying in Kefalonia for 10 years!!!
Someone reliable said Corfu, now, if if you can tell me where to go and why I would be more than grateful. We choose Kefalonia for the following reasons, no discos, beautiful clean scenery, no "get your English Sunday roasts here" signs, a nice clean hotel, no lager louts, I think you get my picture. Lol!   We did venture to Zante-goodness they know how to drink there!!! We went to Thassos, but Kefalonia came out tops again.
So my friends we love Greece and her islands but where in Corfu and why? If you want to go to Kefalonia I could let you know the names of the roads!!!
It looks as though the airport is a long way from the resorts, is this true? I am disabled but I flippin well do my best, so if you could help I'd be so happy and love you forever

I think you would like Kalami or San Stephanos (NE) area of Corfu. Avoid Sidari and  Kassiopi as they will possibly be too busy. The only problem is that there are no hotels as most of the accomodation is owned by locals and is self-catering. Kalami has one hotel complex (Adonis Asonitis) which I believe may have apartments for disabled but it is built into the hillside so I am not sure how ideal it would be. Would you consider a self-catering apartment within the village (maybe on the sea-front) as there are 4 good tavernas within easy distance and the adjoining bays are also accessable by regular boat service for dinner.

Well, if you managed Kefalonia (and that can be a bit steep) then you shouldn't have too many problems in Corfu.  How mobile are you?

The most level parts of Corfu are the north coast, but they tend to be spread out (Rhoda, Acharavi) or Anglicised (Sidari).  The north-east is posh and expensive and all on steep hillsides.  Most of the east coast, near the capital, is urban and big hotels.  The very pretty bits (e.g. Paleokastritsa, to the west) can suffer from steps, though that's pretty flat near the beach end, so you need to check the maps before booking.

Messonghi is another spot that would meet your check list. I've been going here since 2001 for the very same reasons.

Regardless what has been said Kassiopi is reasonably flat with no larger louts and the locals will do anything to help you. If you want suggestions about accommodation why not e-mail Mike and Vera at Cosmic travel, Im sure they will be able to advise you better as they have been there for years, but what ever you do on Corfu Im sure you will enjoy

Alehouse no offence intended. It seemed that Lefkki was seeking somewhere smaller and quieter. I like Kassiopi  but find it a little busy in July and August. We all have our preferences and life would be very boring if we all wanted the same. Cool I love Kalami for its peace, quiet and lack of shops and bars but it is not for everyone.

Petriti will suit you if you want somewhere quiet, and really Greek.  It is also flat.
It is a genuine fishing village with enough good seaside tavernas (hope you like fish) and some very pleasant bars too.  You will be quite safe- noone here will even have heard of the tradition of meat and 2 veg. for Sunday lunch, more likely a freshly caught sole and salad! 
re the airport, nowhere on Corfu is that far from the airport- longest drive (direct) would be the north coast- Roda, Acharavi etc. but as this is the more commercialised part I don't think you would want that anyway.
