The village of old Perithia is located at around 450 meters height below the mountain of Pantokrator, the highest mountain on the island. In the 1960s the village was almost completely abandoned as its inhabitants moved to locations closer to the coastline. Over the last few years interest in the preservation of the beauty of this village has increased, a lot of houses have been traditionally renovated and some taverns have opened. If you want to try typical Corfiot dishes and enjoy the atmosphere of a remote village located in the mountains then old Perithia is certainly worth a visit.
Acharavi is a typical tourist destination located at the north of the island of Corfu. The northern part of the island has a lot to offer and is certainly worth a visit. Almiros, located between Acharavi and St. Spyridon, is a sandy beach over 7 kilometers long, where even at high-season you can find less crowded spots. It is possible to walk all the way from Roda to St. Spyridon along the beach and you will encounter a lot of typical Greek taverns that offer fish and other various seafood.
