Vintage Corfu......


Vintage Corfu in the villages.....

Another fine sunny day here on the island so we were out and about in Yellow Peril visiting a few local villages - I just love the signs around resort. So today not a lot of text its more about the photos that just took my interest.  I call it Vintage Corfu as I just embrace (it just gives me a tingle of old Corfu) the mostly hand made signs and the originality of it encapsulating the village life as you sup your Ouzo (well as did ole man Aris) and me as is normal with a little white wine or a retsina....meze and chill out....

If you do and I would recommend you do venture up into Avliotes then try the local Kafeneion here, many moons ago it was our original Post Office. The post was literally left there and we all went to reclaim our letters in the big brown cardboard box.



So today we sat on the roadside and really and literally watched the world and the cars pass us by..... order a drink they bring you olives, cheese and salami........


Venturing over to Arillas stop by another Kafenion Nikolletas with views over towards Arillas in a lovely garden area and stock up on fresh bread and other supplies.......






And just at the junction going into the village of Avliotes are the signs taking you up-to the church of Taxichon ( we were married there a few years back)








Venturing up from this junction another lovely stop would be at Havianias for mezes and wine - do pop inside as this traditional little ouzeria will amaze you as you will find some original examples of Vintage Corfu, hanging there and displayed on their walls including old olive oil utensils, coffee grinding machines etc.......open lunchtimes and evening.......order a jug of wine they bring you a tempting meze too which is a fine example of their menu.......



The signs for me just say it all ....Life in a Corfu Village....... Put it on your to do list this summer........
