Corfu's Oldest Village – Guide and Where to Stay

Welcome to Old Perithia, Corfu’s oldest village.

with one comment

For the first time in more than a 100 years, visitors will now be able to stay in Old Perithia, the oldest village on the island of Corfu, just below its highest mountain, Mount Pantokrator.

First recorded in the 14th century, Old Perithia is a protected heritage site –

“An historic settlement consisting of 130 houses of Venetian architecture together with a significant number of important churches decorated with frescoes, all being surrounded by a landscape of outstanding natural beauty.”

The Merchant’s House is being carefully restored as six unique Bed & Breakfast Suites providing traditional hospitality with a contemporary standard of comfort.

Old Perithia’s unique history makes the village a popular spot for locals and visitors alike, as well as walkers, painters and those seeking a unique and individual place to stay and enjoy the tranquility, fresh mountain air and local Corfiot food at any of the four taverna’s along the cobbled streets, and access to the beautiful beaches along the north east coast… just 15 minutes away.

“Old Perithia – A wonderful marriage between history, architecture and nature.”
“Παλιά Περίθεια – Ένα Θαυμαστό Πάντρεμα Ιστορίας, Αρχιτεκτονικής και Φύσης.”

The Guide to Old Perithia is available at all good bookshops in Corfu, online and at Stanfords in Covent Garden, London UK http://www.old-perithia.com
