Hi,
Could everyone keep in mind what the original poster Linzechris asked advise for.

"We are in our early fifties, like to relax, maybe sightsee a little and eat and drink in typically Greek tavernas as well as relax on the beach.
We do NOT like very touristy places with lots of drunk people that have no respect for the local culture.
Also, my husband is awaiting a knee replacement at the moment so struggles with walking too much or very hilly areas if there are no lifts etc."

This may help with any further advise than you may give.

So you did Elliemay.
Great minds as they say.
Do you go to Acharavi every year?

WE do, its our base town, as we are just up the mountain from it. I'll let Elliemay speak for herself.
We also frequent the North East area a lot, our little boat is moored there.

Hi,
Have our own house, but the bank and accountant are there so we visit very regularly. Also have very good friends who live just up the mountain from there. Wink

We aspire to own our own place there one day. At the moment we rent our own apartment behind the Tassos wood yard.

No matter where you go in Corfu you will find tourists. But if I did not want to share the place with too many tourists I would be looking round the Chalikounas Beach area.
Keep taking your, take a holiday in kassiopi pills.

But you won't find many locals there either....at least you will find them on the beach, but you'd have to go inland to find a cafeneion (for example)

On the road in to Chalikounas you will find restaurants & tavernas 5 minutes from the beach.

After reading all these posts and 20 plus years of going to Corfu, Acharavi not for us too, built up, reminds me of home, so no no no. x Sorry if I offend not usual for me but not keen at all.

Davyboy- do you mean the road by the lake or the road through St George's south?  If the latter I would still say you would not see a person who actually lived there relaxing, only on the main road at Linia...if the lake- possibly, if either of the tavernas are open which is highly unlikely at the moment sadly!

Sedgi no worries. Everyone has different opinions but Acharavi built up? Not for me.

Even though I live in a fishing village that became a resort I do not like anywhere that is called that, especially if it has been purpose built for tourism- as GJJW says, horses for courses thankfully!
I was beginning to think I was alone until I had friends over last Easter who were amazed by Corfu as they said although they holiday several times a year in various places they had never been to a place where there seemed to be nothing but tourism- and although they were polite I don't think they liked that, although they found the island very beautiful.

I agree Jan, I love Corfu, but would not like to stay in a pure tourist resort, prefer to stay in a village where local people live and work, we always stay in Benitses, which thankfully has returned to just that (Ii do remember the sad days of too much tourism there!) It is a great base to explore the island too.

Tourists seem to becoming a dirty word in this thread, where would Corfu be without them?
