Petriti bay is in the midst of lush green olive groves, with numerous interesting walks.

Scattered around the hillsides there are many small villages to experience, old house's .. how people used to, and still live the same way of life, there are quirky gifts and crafts on sale in some of the little narrow village streets.

The very old villages of Argerades, Korakades, Vasilatika and Kouspades, St.Nicholas, Notos, Neoraki & Perivoli can all be enjoyed and incorporated into one of our many interesting walks.

All are well worth a visit with an abundance of Churches, Fantastic Views .and Breathtaking scenery

One of the main fishing ports on the island with fresh fish available daily, it retains all its charm, beauty and naivety.

Also very Close to the conservation area of old Chlomos, with breathtaking views of Lake Korrisson and both sides of the south of Corfu to the Greek mainland, Lefkimi and Paxos.

If I were to compare this area, I would compare it to the surroundings which Durrell first found on Corfu....In the old villages along the hillsides, locals still enjoy their traditional way of life - working the land with donkeys wearing traditional wooden saddles for carrying their load, the ladies hold the bulk on their heads as they carry the fruits of their work home, tending their sheep and Goats as they work the land. there is no competition or greed - just a way of life before supermarkets, cars, fashion and status.

The Ionian Islands region

Located on the south east coast, 8 km south of Moraitika and Messongi on the slender heel of Corfu with its sandy beach and crisp Ionian Seaside, hosting traditional family Tavernas' along its waters edge.

The Villa sits on the upper ridge overlooking the village and the Bay, a short walk to the beach, shops, tavernas' and pool.

The Port of Petriti is a popular sailing destination for ' Top Deck Sailing Holidays ' from the Greek mainland and is home to the local Fishing boats which bring fresh fish daily.

An unspoiled area of outstanding natural beauty and Ionian history - As yet, unsupported by mass tourism and crowds.

Nearby is The beautiful Korrission lake, Chalikounas & Gardiki beaches and Byzantine Castle ruins, Lefkimi. Marathias, Argarades and St. Georges South - Miles of Golden beaches and unspoiled natural beauty.

It's hard not to fall in love with the Ionian Islands, an archipelago that sweeps down the west coast of mainland Greece and includes Corfu, Paxi, Lefkada, Ithaki, Kefallonia and Zakynthos. Discovering these islands is a fantastic experience. Their natural beauty embraces the visitor – the vast olive groves, intriguing mountainscapes and iridescent waters of the Ionian Sea offer something for adventure seekers, culture vultures and beach bums alike.

Petriti

In the summer there are local regattas and village fiestas - Panigyri - an insight into the traditional ways of Corfu

The second-largest and the greenest Ionian island. It is also the best known.

There are numerous walks including extensions of the famous 'Corfu Trail'

Good cycle routes are very popular in this flatter area of Corfu.

..... There is an abundance of ruins to explore throughout Corfu, such as the Venetian boatyard at Gouvia, the Ruins at San Rapos' and the Byzentine Gardiki castle, when travelling around Corfu look out for unstatemented ruins left to natures' intents .....just by the roadside.

The Durrell brothers – among others – extolled its virtues.

Corfu was Homer's 'beautiful and rich land', and Odysseus' last stop on his journey home to Ithaki.

Shakespeare reputedly used it as a background for The Tempest. In the 20th century,

The area is especially child friendly.

The following activities are within 10 Km but Not in the immediate area

water sports,

coach to water Park,

Pony trekking,

day trips

Boat Trips,

karaoke,

sky sports

live entertainment and night clubs during the evenings.

"Friendly,"

First of all Blue Harbour owners David and Susan are great hosts, responded in no time on all our requests in a very friendly manner. In addition they are endless source of Corfu knowledge, which turned to be very helpful during our vacation. The house is located on a small hill, 5-10 minutes away from the nearest beach in the small fishermen village Petriti, 11.5 km away from the nearest ferry harbor (Lefkimi). We rented the bottom floor of the house, consisting of 2 kitchen areas with everything you'll ever need, 2 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms (beds are good!) in a nicely renovated Greek style house with a small garden with bbq area. Be aware of the neighbors small dog, it is stealing sea shoes at night time; however, the old lady was nice enough to return them :) Overall we are completely satisfied from our stay and I would recommend the place to everybody looking for a quiet vacation in south Corfu, where imho you can still feel the real Corfu spirit.

"NIce appartment shame about the hills"

As advertised the Villa sits on the ridge overlooking the bay. The beach is a short walk from the Villa approx 400 meters - there are two slopes to walk down to the beach and village centre, they are not classed as hills - we are not on a hillside nor a mountain miles from anywhere.
The road to the front of the property is a cul-de-sac access for local traffic to other villas

"Absolutely lovely place to stay. Owners great company and so helpful!"

We so enjoyed our stay at Blue Harbour, the accommodation was absolutely lovely and very comfortable with everything we needed. A home from home!

The "resort" is a pretty little fishing village and perfect for getting away from it all. A handful of good restaurants served really tasty traditional food..

The owners Sue and David were really helpful and even took us out for two days showing us around the area which was very much appreciated.

Thank you very much indeed, would love to return to Corfu again and would definitively stay at the Blue Harbour.

Anne and Alan ( Newcastle)

It is a pleasure to hear the lovely reviews and realise we have great guests who appreciate the authenticity of the island. We try to promote a positive and truthful advert, and enjoy hearing your response.

"delightful studio /apt. in Petriti"

what a lovely find, studio with separate bedroom and pretty ensuite shower room, fully equipped lounge/kitchen,patio area with b.b.q. there,s a small beach in Petriti, nice restaurants, lots of yachts, not far to long sandy beaches on west coast. Spent five days exploring the area with help from owners Sue and David who gave us loads of info.and fresh tomatoes,melon and pears . Real Greek hospitality. would go again. It is an uphill walk from beach etc. ok if you,re fit, otherwise you need transport.

Thanks for the lovely comments, there is a short walk from the beach.
It is an elevation, taking you to the upper level of the village. I would like to confirm it is a pleasant uphill walk, and not a mountainous climb.

"Good"

Good stay, value for money. Quiet place, nice people.
The walk back home after visited taverna or beach was not so pleasent than to the beach. You must visti "paradise" beach. Fantastic. The best thing is to rent a scooter. Mr Robinson was helpful and took us the the rental office.

Thank you for your review
