Local Walks
« on: June 13, 2014, 12:12:03 AM »
I'm going in July and wondered if there are any good walks around San Stef which I could do. I know there is one past Nafsika but I want to know if there are any others. I've done the one where you end up at the Havana Beach Bar and that was good.. Thanks..  :D

I know of a few, If your a light night trekker then I would Highly suggest heading to the little church on the very top of Arillas hill, Just before sunrise, If you get there at the right time you can see the moon set into the ocean one side and the sun come over the hills the next. great walk, I am also heading out from June the 23rd to July the 14th :) only major expedition I have pre planned is snorkelling at porto Timony near Afionas. Thats worth a look too!

I've just ordered this book:

http://www.corfuwalks.com/northwest.html

I'll let you know.

We've done a lot of walks, including to Afionas and back. I will say, though, that July-August is not really the time to be doing a lot of steep walking. But it is great in September/October.

Thank you everyone for the information. You have all been very helpful. I am there for 11 days so I will have a lot of time to do the walks!  :D

I think it is the little Chapel on the top of the hill between SS and Arillas :)

If you look at our San Stefano Travel 'Trip' page we are running the alternative walking trips. The rural monastery one however is not currently available. Keith & Sue once again are happy to lead the way !  ;)

Yes I meant the little chapel :) such a great view and really nice to walk in the early morning as during the day can be far too warm! Well worth taking the camera up. Such a peaceful place. I will be going in 10 days. If I can I will get some paneramic shots for all to enjoy and see if you fancy getting some pictures for yourself!

We went up to the little church in June,lots of little stones outside it, with messages left on them to absent friends and family.It is a beautiful place,so calm and peaceful.
If its not one thing,its your mother.
