Upon arriving late into the hair-raising Corfu airport (3am) we took a taxi to the apartments, we were tired when we arrived the place seem basic but clean my friend had no fan in her room but double doors onto a large patio. Upon waking we found a fan had been delivered and we had a gorgeous sea view.
The apartment was only 5 minutes walk from the pebble beach which was quiet and had beautiful blue seas (watch out for the sea urchins). Situated in the mountains near the lovely Benitses, the location was ideal, great for getting around in a car (watch out ,driving can be a bit of a knee trembling experiance) or you can take the blue bus for 1 euro into corfu town.
What really made our holiday was the welcome we recieved from the delightful owner Fedon. We looked forward to going to the pool and bar every day to sit and chat with Fedon and Teddy (who worked for Fedon) No problem was too big for Fedon he gave us a map and marked out the good places to go to, he told us of small villages with festivals, consequently we spent lovely evenings sitting eating sardines and drinking barrelled wine with the locals. Fedon even called the airport to change my car booking and have the car delivered to the apartments. Fedon advised us of good places to eat, sights to see and beaches to visit, every day was interesting and yet relaxing thanks to Fedon's helpful advice.
Corfu town is a must see, we spent some wonderful evenings in this beautiful old city, the bars were cosmopolitan and lively, the people welcoming. The 'Venetian Well' restaurant was a fairly expensive but absolutely delicious treat.
When leaving the apartments Fedon, Teddy the dog clefty and the kitten stood on the roadside to wave us off, Teddy even drew us all a picture, we really felt like we were leaving friends. I would advise anyone to visit this beautiful and friendly island (perhaps avoiding Kavos). And the Adromaches Apartments is a place I would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a friendly and totally authentic Corfiot experiance
