I went there on behalf of a tour company specialising in disabled groups assessing suitability of hotels for their clients= of course nothing at all wrong with that, and indeed essential (width of lifts etc for wheelchairs), stairs etc. so I was indeed TRYING to find hotels with these facilities.
No, I was just so sad to see the totally tasteless development at Faliraki architecturewise which had ruined a beautiful beach- I know development has to happen but Faliraki's was done at a time when there was no sense of fitting in with the environment, and was only interested in providing the maximum number of beds, rather than quality

Off message and apologies but so Lavinia is Vinny - I often wondered! Remember the one-eyed Pekinese we looked after for you when we lived in Potamos! A long, long, time ago! George and Jenn living in your house in Benitses. Wallpapering your sitting room. I could go on but!!! Peter Cookson

Our first visit to Corfu was in June 1985 when we brought our 7 year old nephew with us. It was the first time Michael had travelled on an aeroplane and as we took off he asked us quite seriously how would we know which stop to get off because "Dan Air - London" was printed on the front of the plane! We still laugh about his question even now almost 27 years later.
Well that was the start of the week that all three of us fell in love with Corfu, it's people, its beaches, its countryside, the food, the different smells, the changing weather... Michael still comes on holiday with us but he now comes with his partner and their two children as well as his mother, sister, brother, other aunt and their families) What more can we say??

About 25 years ago a friend of mine missed his flight to Spain and they offered him a holiday to Dassia instead. He raved so much about it that my then wife, my son and daughter and myself went to Tsaki near Benitses the following year. We were welcomed to the apartment by the owner of the bar below it when we arrived. During the holiday he brought round his son and daughter who were the same ages as my children. We are still good friends as are my children and his children. I have been there many times since. I currently visit twice a year and stay in his own apartments next door to his house. I think of him, his children and mother as family. It always feels like home when I am there.
