This was our first visit to Corfu, and The Paleo Inn lived up (and down) to expectations. The staff are extremely friendly, and the number of return visitors was impressive. It gave the feeling that we were joining a close group of friends for the duration of our stay. The pool area was very clean with an ample number of sunbeds. Although it is close to the road, traffic noise was not intrusive. The reference to 'living down' to expectations refers to the small room and lack of aircon on the first floor. However, we knew this before we went and we accept that Greek hotels with this rating are basic. Eating out is a great experience in Paleokastritsa. There is a large choice of restaurants offering mainly Greek food. Our favourite was Nausika, which is within 100 yards of Paleo Inn. Apollon and Smurfs are about 20 minutes walk away in the harbour area and offer stunning views of the bays and the monastery. A walk up to Lakones & Bella Vista is recommended. Most people take an old goat track, but we walked by road as we did not have 'walking' shoes. It was 6 kilometres each way and took all morning, but the views were well worth it. Corfu Town by bus is a 'must do'. It is fun to get lost in the maze of narrow shopping streets and alleys, but as others have said, be prepared for a scrum when trying to board the bus back to Paleo. A trip to Albania was a 12 hour excursion, including a 1 hour ferry from Corfu Town to Sarande. Boarding the ferry involved a passport check and paying 10 euros per person. It took 90 minutes for the process to be completed before the boat departed. Most of the time was taken up by a visit to Roman excavations at Butrint. The area is very wooded/grassy and there are plenty of insects that are ready to bite, so go prepared. Lunch provided was much better that we expected, but the last hour or so spent in Sarande was a bit dissapointing as most of the shops were closed.
