A tour of Corfu’s traditional villages is an excellent option if you want a different private tour in Corfu, far from the crowds, and in a comfortable and luxurious vehicle. Get a full experience of Corfu’s countryside and its traditional life, history, and agriculture; discover how the island’s inhabitants lived centuries ago and what they usually did, and still do, for a living.
This picturesque tour of the traditional villages of Corfu starts with visiting the village of Sinarades, 13km away from Corfu Town and above the famous beach of Agios Gordios. The village cannot be seen from the beach, since it was strategically built to prevent attacks from pirates, Ottomans, and Vikings.
Our next destination is the village of Kato Garouna, surrounded by olive groves and very close to Agios Gordios Beach too. The traditional houses of Kato Garouna and the alleyways are narrow and picturesque, painted in Corfu’s traditional colors and full of flowers and lovely corners.
The tour continues with a visit to Vouniatades, a charming village set on a hill in the center-south of Corfu. The Church of Saint Ioannis and its bell tower dominate the view of the settlement, with less than 200 inhabitants.
Agios Mattheos and Chlomos are also interesting locations in the area. Agios Mattheos offers postcard images of the surrounding landscape. It’s a colorful and lively village with ancient stone mansions, where churches, small cafes, and taverns keep people busy. Don’t miss their centenary olive groves, one of the island’s olive oil production centers.
Chlomos is one of the oldest villages in Corfu, with amazing views to the East and the West, and houses also built in Venetian style hidden in small and narrow alleys. A visit to the top of the hill will give the visitors a relaxing view of both sides of the island, and the Greek mainland too!
During this tour, you will also have the chance to swim in the quiet and blue waters of Agios Georgios. This is one of the best sandy beaches in Corfu, and here you will be able to relax, have a refreshment, or take an easy walk along the seaside to feel the Ionian Sea breeze!
