Our home

We live in a small but lovely apartment in the heart of the historic centre of the city of Corfu("Kerkyra" in greek), the famous Ionian island. The apartment is on the third floor of a 18th century building, one of the highest in the neighbourhood, what makes it extremely sunny. As you enter the apartment you see the living room on your left hand side and our cute little kitchen on the right hand side. The kitchen is equipped with all utensils and gadgets that you might need. On the same floor there is a small WC. In order to get to the bedroom you must go up the indoor wooden staircase that leads to our attic. The attic-bedroom is very sunny too, since it has two attic-windows. Upstairs there is also the bathroom.

Who we are

  1. We are a young couple, Kostas (31) and Nadia (27). We are interpreters and we follow a post graduate programme on interpreting in the Ionian University (Corfu). We love travelling, exploring new places and meeting new cultures and people. This summer we thought we should do something adventurous. It's the first time that we try home exchange, but we are sure we won't regret it!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The apartment is on the 3rd floor of a 18th century building, on the main street of the city, just opposite the city hall and 50m away from the renowed Esplanade, the Liston Square and the old medieval fortress. In walking distance from the house there are supermarkets, bakeries, greengroceries, newsstands, banks, restaurants, cafeterias and any other shop and service (car rental, tourist office, tourist police, hospital) that you might need. The airport, the bus station and port are 5 minutes away (by taxi) or 20 minutes on foot. The taxi station is only 50m away from home. The Achilleion Palace, where Princess Sissy lived is 9 km away.

The house is actually in the heart of the city! Yet it is very close to the sea. It is possible to swim even in the centre (5 minutes on foot)! Of course the best beaches are in villages in northern or southern Corfu, not far from the city (08-25km). From the port of Corfu you can board ships to the nearby islands (cruises are organised daily).

The island is full of sights and antiquities. For the sea and sports lovers there are beautiful beaches to go swimming or exercise any water sport that you can imagine. For the party animals, it is needless to advertise the famous nightlife of the greek islands. The island is waiting for you to explore it!
