What a wonderful week! The apartment was clean but basic but had all that we needed. waking up to a wonderful sight every morning was so lovely. The cats were always around (lucky we like cats). The shop keepers were more than friendly and always welcomed us. The beaches were pebbly but really nice to go down to and relax for the day. We always ended up having a whole section of a beach to ourselves! The weather turned out really nice considering we were expecting rain all week. The lady in the internet cafe who is english made our holiday comfortable by assisting us in any hassle we had. The kids scored a few freebies by being polite and friendly with the locals but overall a fantastic trip.
Now the downside: The apartment is on a hill and boy did it tire us walking up and down it everyday (sometimes up to 3 times a day) This place is not ideal for the elderly or young children even though my two (aged 9 and 11) managed the hill better than us adults!
We went out of season time so alot of places/shops were not open therefore there was not much to do but we found our own entertainment.
There is no entertainment in the apartment so it can get mighty boring if you haven't taken your electronics with you.
When it rains, it pours and boy did it pour for two days - to a point of depression because you couldnt do anything else!
It got very chilly of an evening so we had to get the heating/ac by the second day. the cleaners only came to our apartment twice so we had to buy our own toilet rolls and use our own towels whilst waiting.
As we went out of season, we had alot of problems cashing up money at the bank as they are in corfu town so you either pay 60 euros to go there or wait all day for a bus that may show up! I recommend hiring a car or scooter to get around else it can get very expensive. There are a few local shops that worked out cheaper for groceries and souveniers than corfu town so other than sight seeing, going to corfu town was a wasted journey - more of a case of 'been there, done that'.
Overall we enjoyed a relaxing week in Kassiopi but will move on to other countries now.
