Hi have been going to Corfu since 1991 and would like to say there is more to Corfu than Kassiopi. Yes lovely place but every time log on that is all that is mentioned, there are many of nice places to stay and would be nice to hear them mentioned. Have been to Ipsos, San Stef, Paleo, Glyfada, St George, Sidari, Roda, Ropa valley, Corfu town and yes even Kavos and many more.

Hi Sedgi, you are right.. what about.. Moraitika, Messonghi, Boukari, St George South, Benitses etc. I think it's probably because Kassiopi is pushed onto holidaymakers in the travel agents. I know it's a lovely place, but as you say.. there is a lot more to see on this beautiful Island!! 
Keep calm and think of Corfu!

There are many resorts on the island that appeal to regular visitors. Even if we feel very much at home in the resort of our choice, we should take time to explore other parts of the island. Each resort will appeal to a type of person who is looking for a certain style of holiday. Explore the island during your visit, you could find a gem of a resort which ticks all of your boxes.

Agree Weststekker. I love Kalami - like Kassiopi out of high season but have now discovered Arrillas and also the coastline beyond Corfu Town towards Kavos.

Looking  forward to a week's golf near Ermones, then a week at the beach in Kalami...punctuated by trips inland to some of the beautiful villages for lunch. So much to do and see.
and Charlie, Nia and Daniel's Gran too

Thanks guys thought I was being a bit of a killjoy, thank you for mentioning those other places brought back more fab memories and like you say think Kassiopi is being pushed. To be honest it is lovely but couple of days there enough for me, some amazing places, beaches, people, tavenas and sites else where on corfu.

Thanks Olympus, Westsetkker, Sue Avrio and Lily's Gran, need Kassiopi free weekend.

Moraitika is lovely. great resort and Kalami mentioned in a lot of books well worth a visit. What about Perithea new and old. Arillas and San Stef lovely. Come on guys explore and lets make the site interesting again.

We are addicted to Kassiopi, but hire a car for the duration and visit other villages/resorts which we enjoy. We have also stayed in Roda and a couple of other places before we discovered it. I do think Kassiopi is popular on its own merits. Very little accommodation is available via travel agents - they have largely moved their interests to Roda, Sidari and others so I don't think they are pushing it. For us it is a compromise between too much going on and not enough going on, it is also so friendly. Wonderful that Corfu offers such diversity to fulfil different tastes, long may that last.

The only reason Kassiopi appears in post is because posters ask about it, or Kassiopiyts (if there is such a word) respond to a query, and mention their favourite place.
Its up to other posters to plug their particular fave.
Personally we no longer visit Kassiopi if we can avoid it. (Our accountant's office is there as it happens) can't stand the parking restrictions etc; etc; we remember when the harbour front was cleared of vehicles every week and a show of some sort was performed, everything from international dance festivals to classical recitals then traditional Greek puppet shows. Not for the tourists but the locals. Once in a while we now meet friends in Jasmins for a quick sherbert before going off elsewhere.
I'm always puzzled at some of the descriptions people use for their particular bit of heaven, quiet and peaceful in one persons eyes is a nightclub lunatic asylum to others,
I think that what I'm trying to say is that, you take everyone's opinion with reservations, do as much research as possible, then go for it, choose CORFU, all these enthusiasts that love Corfu can't all be wrong.

I also have my favourite resort which I tend to visit at the beginning or end of the season. At that time staff are not so busy and have more time to talk to you and give lots of useful information. I no longer drive so rather than pay for expensive T.O. tours I use the local bus services. They are great and offer a very reliable service. There used to be a joke that they ran on GMT (Greek Maybe Time) but I can assure you this is no longer the case. They are very good value for money and by using them you often go through villages and see things that you would miss by using a car.

The KTEL bus service has a website where you are able to see the latest timetable which changes month by month dependant on passanger numbers. This site can be found at 


Just click on the link for the latest information. The buses are split into 2 groups, the Blue service covers the areas around Corfu Town and the Green service covers the rural areas and destinations on the mainland. Use the service and you may well find a location which could well suit your personal tastes. Regardless you will learn a lot about the island and it's various local character.

Corfu is known as the "Green Island" due to the amount of rain it gets each year, similar to the U.K. So far this year the weather station in Corfu Town has registered over 300 mm of rain in the first 6 weeks of 2014. This is a third of the total registered last year. I have had reports from friends on the island that rainfall amounts in central Corfu and on the west coast have been nearer normal levels. This is why the character of the island changes from area to area. Who wants to visit and stay in a area where everything is always the same, day in, day out?

Hey Peeps this could get silly - respect everyones choices. If we all liked the same life would be very boring and Kassiopi very crowded. Roll on the summer and the chance for us all to spend time in our own personal favourites.

I love Kassiopi and wouldn't stay anywhere else, but also love the freedom of a hire car while we are there, and do lots of exploring. Especially off the beaten track. Maybe, just maybe, another place will 'grab' us, but till that unlikely day, it is Kassiopi for us. I agree wholeheartedly that it is not everyone's cup of tea, but it suits us. Each to their own - Kassiopi couldn't cope if EVERYONE loved it!!! Wink
