About this listing

I like the place here especially because there are no cars at all.
The alleys are simply to narrow. And of course I do like very much the romantic atmosphere of the old Town. Just magnificent and admirable.

Description

The Space

The Apartment is located in the historic Old Town of Corfu, on the 3rd floor. The house was build about 200 years ago not far from the old harbour (150 meters).
Here in the Old Town there are no cars, because of the really narrow streets. I do live here for 25 years now, so I can give you plenty of Informations about the Town and the Island, Attractions and Excursions, the History of Corfu and how it is to live among the Corfiots.
In case you are not going to rent a Bike or a Car, it is easy to go by public Bus nearly to any point of the Island.
There are countless swimming areas, most of them are sandy beaches and just a few are pepple beaches.
The most and best are on the west coast towards the open sea.
In the evening there are multiple entertainment options in Corfu Town. You can just walk through the charming labyrinth of Corfu
and sooner or later you will probably stop at one of the many Cafes. And while you're drinking an iced coffee you also may enjoy the causual lifestil of the Greeks.
And of course there are plenty of Tavernas, restaurants and bars, where everyone can enjoy him self and the local specialties.

Interaction with Guests

Most of the time I will be also living in the same house because I will have lessons with my studends.

The Neighbourhood

The Neighborhood is in did very charming. Right in the heart of Corfus Old Town. No cars at all. But humans from all over the world.
The Town is realy cosmopolitan and build for human.

Getting Around

There a plenty of Buses going in all directions.
And of course it is easy to rent a car or a bike.

Ursprünglich stamme ich aus Berlin, doch seit 25 Jahren bin ich hier auf der Insel zu Hause und verdiene mich hauptsächlich als Deutschlehrer und Reiseleiter.
Was mich hier begeistert, ist nebst dem mediteranen Klima und dem historischen Charme der reizvollen Altstadt, die Kombination von Meer und Bergen,
sowie eine wirklich guttuenden Gastfreundlichkeit und Menschlichkeit der Korfioten.
Darüber hinaus genieße ich es natürlich sehr, dass hier in der Altstadt keine Autos verkehren.
Die Finanzkrise ist selbstverständlich für die Menschen, die hier leben, nicht leicht
zu ertragen. Die positive Seite ist, dass die Leute wieder enger zusammenrücken um ihr gemeinsam besser die Stirn bieten zu können.
Außerdem werden die Menschen in ihrer Not wieder einfallsreicher und vielfältiger.
Diesbezüglich ist meine Lieblingsdevise: CARPE DIEM.
Pflücke bzw. lebe den Tag und mach das Beste aus dem, was das Leben dir bietet.
