Agree with Janmanessi, the Argo would seem to be ideal, and I know that Spiro and Anne who own it would make you most welcome. Also you need to consider that wherever you chose, you may need heating at night. We went in 1982 on the 26th April and the heating was on in the hotel.
www.argobenitses.gr is the website for the Argo.
Please do not let the cooler weather put you off. It is a wonderful time to visit, the locals have more time to spend with you and are fresh from having a good rest in the wintertime.
Corfu is a wonderful island, but it is the people who make it even better and help to draw back returning visitors for many years.

Looked at Kassiopi as suggested, but somehow doesn't really appeal. Browsing again and came across a little place further south called Boukari and around that area. Both of us are looking for a place with a local feel to it. Not looking for busy resorts not that it would be in April I know.

Think Petriti would have more local feel to it than Boukari as it is a real village, but at that time of year I would like to be within the more frequent local bus route area to Corfu, so would look again at Benitses- suggested Argo as in the old village, also the B and B I mentioned is full of local character

Petriti will definitely be open-I'll be here in my house! You will definitely need a bit of warmth though in the accommodation at night if it's holiday accommodation.
Petriti will have at least 4 tavernas and 2 bars and all the shops open.
And Spiro Karides taverna and Kalami taverna in Boukari will also be open- only 20 minute walk along he coast - if you want any more info please feel free to pm me
