If you go into Corfu Town, visit Bosketto, which is a play area between the Old Fort and the Palace of St.Michael and St. George. This is where my husband used to play as a child and later on, our own children. Wherever you go in Corfu, the Corfiots will make a tremendous fuss of your child as they just love children. Hope you have a great holiday.

Thanks again...the donkey sanctuary is a great idea and so is the Boscetto...as for the fuss...we are from Malta, and people do the same with kids here, and my son just loves it so we hope he will have his first time abroad

Marlene, that is fascinating about the donkeys coming from Malta. Did they come over with the Maltese stone masons who built so many of Corfu's beautiful buildings when the British were in control? I know there are quite a lot of Corfiot families whose origins are Maltese. Sorry to go off the topic! My Corfiot grandmother-in-law had a donkey who was spoilt to bits, to such an extent that "Nona" wouldn't ride him in case she hurt him!

If you go to town go to Canoni and see the tiny Skyros ponies- about the size of a large dog, which Sylvia Steen breeds. She is the only person off the island allowed to breed them, and they are fascinating, as are all her other animals

This is the Silva Project and riding school - and yes it's a lovely place to visit, although it's probably better to call first to make sure that it's convenient. Their website is here.
I believe they are moving premises imminently, to a location which will be more visitor friendly, so that's another good reason to call them first.

Reading the posts aboput Toddlers my neice is visiting us from 15th August for 2 weeks and has sent me a long list of requirements for her 10 month baby girl. Now most things I can find but I am stumped on her request 'Does Bottles Water have salt in it'? I checked a bottle and it does have potasium which is salt, isn't it? Any ideas on this one please.? Not something I considered before as we use our village tap water but understand she needs salt free bottled water?

It's sodium that is salt not potassium. You're looking for αlάτι (salt) on the bottle. Zagori water says low salt on the label. You would probably be better trying to find spring water. If they don't have it in the local supermarkets, maybe you are near one of the UK shops who may sell it.
