Because it’s again summer we are planning the holiday and I had a nice feeling remembering the last year holiday in Corfu, in Paleokastritsa, at Marilena Studio. And I can say, IT WAS GREAT!!! For the first time that we had a vacation in Greece it was super to have such a nice accommodation and a very nice owner, Eleni. Great studio for the money paid, very clean, comfortable, well equipped with all you need and more you will need in a vacation. We combined the eating at restaurants with eating breakfast and a late night meal in the room. It is sooo nice to make your own coffee, just the way you like it, and have some cereals, or fried egs on the balcony, early in the morning with the sun and the beautiful view in the front of your yes. The room was lovely, with all that you need: comfortable bed, nice kitchen, nice and clean bathroom and what I loved the most, the balcony with big doors ( glass and also wood for sun protection) and a table with two chairs.
To have a conclusion about Marilena studio, it was a very good report between price and quality .
Tips for Corfu and Paleokastritsa:
- Eleni it’s a tour guide , so ask her from the start what it’s nice to see in Corfu, where to eat and what to do;
- At a nice restaurant - Nausica, they have a greek night , or two on the week, go there and ask because you will have a nice night with greek music, dance and the custom with fire and plaits that will be smashed ( and they have a nice orange and lemon pie );
- If you will go in Corfu by car or if you wish to rent a car, do a tour of Corfu, on the shore, you will see other beaches and nice views ( as you know Corfu it’s like a mountain that ends in the see on every shore ); go and visit Kerkira / Corfu town, visit Canal d’amour , eat in the village on the top of Palekastritsa, look for family taverns to eat, they are much nicer than restaurants;
- And if you have a car or go by bus or as you wish, you have to eat at Shark tavern in Gouvia – it’s a family tavern and you will eat what fish they have in that day, they go you in the kitchen and you can pick what fish you want to eat, try calamari on the grill – most certainly you will find family taverns wherever you will go, we didn’t had patient to find another one.
So , Corfu it’s lovely place to be in summer time but also in September when we went, Paleokatritsa it’s lovely, the most beautiful place from Corfu because of the turquoise water and such nice views, and Eleni with Marilena Studios, LOVELY accommodation for you.
Have a nice holiday!
