San Stefano, Corfu a Gardeners voyage to Eden. - Notice: Undefined index: lh_archive_post_status-title_label in /var/www/clients/client1/web15/web/wp-content/plugins/lh-archived-post-status/partials/option-settings.php on line 16

Take a small fishing village with a winter population of no more than a few hundred hardy residents, add a little winter rain some high spring temperatures and extra portions of Sunshine and a sleepy community is suddenly transformed into a lively if not somewhat, exclusive resort.

 

The idyllic harbour on the North East region of Corfu is renowned for its high-class villa’s, wealthy clientele and stylish tavernas. Not that you would recognise it out of season as for many months of the year the village shops are closed the streets are deserted and only the stray cats walk the pebble beach in a hope of a few tit-bits.

Such is a tale of many a shoreline resort where tourism is an industry that provides a buoyant economy well let’s say while the sunshines out of season is another story. Take a stroll off the beaten track and walk the many costal footpaths that connect many of these remote fishing villages and you let (often alone) to discover a dust path with rocky outcrops.
