We really enjoyed our stay. The roof garden was a very special feature, overloooking the village pantile roofs and with long views over to Corfu town and the sea. You do need to be reasonably nimble to get to it: the access is via steep stairs and crawling through a window. The apartment is beautifully cool and comfortably furnished. We slept well. It had all we needed without over-provision of kitchen utensils etc. It's open plan so is really only suitable for a couple. Mother-in-law provided a very friendly welcome with a bottle of wine, fruit and flowers. The local tarvernas were also very friendly and welcoming. Excellent local bakery and useful mini-market in the village.
