The house prices around Roda, vary greatly. It depends if you want a newer villa or a traditional village house. Whether you want to live in Roda itself, or would consider a village house a few kilometers inland. Also, if you want a house with a garden.
We bought a house through Corfu Estate Agents in Acharavi two years ago, that we are delighted with. A village house about 5 minutes drive from Roda.

As for work, there are quite a few Brits, who have been over in Roda for a number of years, and they seem to make a living. You should call in to the Roda Tavern next time you are in Corfu, as a lot of the 'ex-pats' drink in there after they have finished work, and pick their brains.
