For centuries, Corfu's magnetic beauty has attracted travellers, who have sung the praises of the peacock-hued bays, the hillsides drenched in silvery-green olive trees, and the emerald greenness of the countryside. And when you leave Corfu, these will be your impressions too. While time brings change, the pristine Corfu so beloved of Lear and the Durrell brothers can still be found - this book tells you where. It turns the island inside-out and helps you find a Corfu unknown to most tourists. The book focuses on walking, but it is not intended only for walkers. The car touring section will show you the best of the island, and the picnic suggestions make an excellent introduction to the countryside. There are walks for all ages and abilities on this island, from strolls to beaches to challenging day-long hikes - in the mountains or criss-crossing the plains.

Review Text

  • By Jillybean on 10 June 2012

    An excellent guide to walking, car touring and picnic sites for all of Corfu. I had only time to do 3 of the 4 car tours, as I was based at Acharavi in the mountainous North of the island, so I didn't go to the South. However the 3 drives were very detailed, with clear directions, and took me to places I would not have otherwise gone to. Equally, the walks were clearly detailed, and gave me a warning about snakes in May and June, which I saw on the walk. (Harmless variety)Many of the walks coincide with the Corfu Trail, which has given me an idea for a future holiday.

    I went to Corfu twice, each time I took this book with me. The first time I did all the car tours described in the book and combined some short walks. The second time I did the longer walks and used local transport to get to the start of the walks. In all cases the description was precise. Both walks and car tours take you in remote villages where it seems that time stood still, and very beautiful coastline. I can't immagine haven gone to Corfu without this book

    This book is really helpful if you like hiking and enjoy seeing some less touristy parts of the island. It gives good description of interesting hikes and scenery and the maps are helpfull. Most routes are quite long (20 km or more) and most routes are one-way routes(so you can use busses). However if you have a car and prefer to do some shorter hikes (2-4 hrs) it is possible to plan your own routes based on the information in this book.

    Imagine our dismay when following the walk listed on Page 71, starting at Spartiles then following the directions avidly and turning the page to find that Page 72 is a whole page written in German and we had no idea how to continue as the next words in English were on Page 73. There are several pages in the book that are in German and as our family can speak a smattering of French whereas, unfortunately, German is beyond us.I look forward to receiving a full refund.

    Full of very detailed walks all over the island. We are testing the book out for a week on 19/10, so shall have more to say then.Easy to read and not too big to be a pain to carry on a walk. Also has good clear maps.

    Good book which connects the walks to the Car Tours, and has good information on the tours. Also a handy size - not too big. The map is useful but is difficult to fold appropriately when using the book at the same time.
