"All over the place in Corfu,..." Greece Off The Beaten Path Tip by teflon1961

Greece Off The Beaten Path: 249 reviews and 282 photos


All over the place in Corfu, away from the coastal resorts, small villages can be found in the hills. The quaintest part of these to me, were sometimes, on the way in or out, you might find a wine maker and his wife, or a wood carver. ALl they will have is a smallish shop from where to sell there crafts, the funny bit is that they practically jump out in front of the car to get you to stop, give you directions that they think you need, then try to drag you out of the car so you can 'sample' their goods...often leading to an obligatory sale. Wonderful stuff.

The picture is of George, he 'sold' us some of his own 'self-trampled' wine, the pictures at the side of him are his pride and joy. Click on the piccie to make it big and have a better look. We bought the bottle of sweet red wine in his hand, for 2 Euros, that's about £1.40 !!
