Reasons for trip


We have just returned from a holiday in Corfu. We had never visited the island before, but found the Corfiots to be very friendly and helpful. Our hotel, the Corfu Mare situated in Corfu Town, was for adults only, but was one of the best we have stayed in. The staff were professional and friendly. The rooms had clean bedding and towels every other day. We also had tea and coffee facilities. The outdoor pool and surrounding area was a bonus as well as the gymnasium.

We would recommend visits to the Old Venetian Fort and also Mon Repos – where Prince Philip was born (Entrance fees only 2 euros for over 65s). The British Cemetery is a tranquil spot steeped in history, just off San Rocco Square where the blue buses stop. The caretaker George Psailas came out and chatted to us. He was awarded the British Empire Medal in 1988 for his dedication towards the service of British Cemetery, which was opened during the British Protectorate of the Ionian Islands, 1814-1864.

We ran out of time during our seven days as there was such a choice of places to visit. Sadly Vidos Island was not visited or the Archaelogical Museum – both closed down for the duration.

Buses – blue for town services and green for country services were convenient to the hotel into town or to coastal resorts. There was a good choice of restaurants nearby at incredibly reasonable prices. It was good to browse around the maze of shops in Corfu Old Town. We had no need to hire a car.
