Peroulades - The Village That Time Forgot

Perouladess Dawn

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, but the 40th was perfect.
Except that we were going home.

I think I should give credit to my Cannon A70 here. Through 3 layers of glass and plastic and set on auto it did a pretty good job.

Spot the pedaloes.

We started in Sidari, moved to the Canal De Amour (Melitsa) and then to Peroulades. As far as my wife and I are concerned we started at the wrong end, or perhaps we wanted the best of both worlds. It does depend what you want from a holiday of course. If it's England in the sun then Sidari is fine and ideal for a family. There is plenty to do and now that prices are dropping, after the Euro fiasco, much better value. There are a few of the older tavernas like The Rock that have not forgotten they are supposed to be Greek.

To be honest Peroulades is quiet. There is basically only one to eat and enjoy the company. Panorama is like no other place on earth. Rather a sweeping statement but you can tell when you are no longer classed as a tourist, you get served last and strange drinks appear late at night that no sane 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 ones like mousaka and stifado and some we had never heard of, but good.
