Peroulades - The Village That Time Forgot
For almost ten years we have been going to Corfu. In September 2004 we
took our 20th holiday there. That's a lot of miles, about four times around
the world. Thirty nine flights and not once had we passed over Peroulades,

tourist would pick up let alone drink. One is then reminded to push the
scooter home This only applies to George and the Seventh Heaven Cafe,
the restaurant is quite different, far more humane.
Panorama is a restaurant and a cafe and not a taverna, it's stile is modern
and quite unique. You can either have a snack or a full meal. There is a
wide variety to choose from and there are many Greek dishes both common
