One of the island's oldest villages, and unquestionably it's best preserved. Visitors can get the best out of their visit with the Guide to Old Perithia which includes a self-guided 1 mile (2.5km) circular walk around the village (available at all...more
I loved this place we travelled from Agios Stefanos on the north west of the island it took about an hour on a quad bike.
The village is peaceful and beautiful and the journey up through the hills was stunning
We had spinach pie and...More
Old perithia was lovely - worth going to. Picturesque and the taverna’s were pleasant and cheap. Bit of a long and windy road up but worth it. The caves however are not do not bother going to the Perithia cave, difficult drive as all overgrown...More
Good parking once at the site with taverna opportunities. The route by car up from the main Kassiopi Acharavi road was good with some narrow passing places. We visit both locations when in Corfu and the village continues to charm. Some new building has occurred...More
We found this place surreal, to see all the derelict houses. After walking we tried the old taverna for lunch and it did not disappoint. I had a pasta and beef dish that was a traditional plate. It was lovely. Add the home made ginger...More
We go up to Old Perithia every year and it has become a staple of our itinerary. Enjoy a rarer view into the inland/mountainous areas of Corfu, soak up a bit of history and enjoy a refreshing home made ginger beer and walnut cake, maybe...More
Visited Old Perithia and Loutses Cave during a day driving in the hills. Old Perithia is like stepping back in time to simpler times in Corfu’s history. Very much worth even an uninformed wander round its collection of ruined, part ruined and restored buildings. There...More
I went up to Old Perithia twice, twice in the evenings, because like most drives on this island, the one up to this gem is a hairy ride (You do get used to it after a while!).
As you travel up, any passengers (Anyone not...More
Our lovely Sunvil rep, Katie, suggested we visit Old Perithia during our day in Kalami. We were a bit surprised at how long it took us to get there but, as always happens, it seemed really quick getting back. The road is narrow and windy...More

As a predominantly farming community, when tourism took off there was more, or easier, money to be made by the sea. Villagers generally owned 2 homes, New Perithia and in Old Perithia so the transission was easy... the village was never totally abandoned and it certainly isn't a 'ghost village!'... myths of time :-)

Hi, it's absolutely not possible to walk - it's a good distance away and up a very steep road. There's no buses in low season but the best place to ask is at your resort front desk as they will know what is happening much more accurately than any website. Although coaches do go up there, it's easiest with your own hire car and go in the evening.
