The long-lasting love of a British couple for Old Perithia
Mark and Saskia, a young British|Dutch couple, ordered a tasteful place-name sign of wood, which was placed at the entrance of the Heritage Protected Village of Old Perithia. The wooden sign has a detailed map of the settlement with information about the sightseeing of this peaceful mountain village in Greek and in English. The young couple, who are almost permanent residents of the Perithia, have invested their life dreams here and prove their love for this island every day by their actions.

In the last years, the abandoned village of Old Perithia has come to life again and enjoys a lot of traffic daily.

Two young British people never stop confirming their love for Old Perithia .
In the last years, the abandoned village of Old Perithia has come to life again and enjoys many visitors each day.

Now, there are five traditional tavernas in Perithia and last year “The Merchant’s House” an accommodation of the highest quality, boutique bed and breakfast suites, opened in three old renovated houses, located at the entrance of the heritage protected village. The investors are Mark and Saskia – a British|Dutch couple – who have almost become permanent residents of Perithia and enthusiastically love the island, its history, its beauty, its people, its tastes, its smell and sounds.

They are excellent promoters of Perithia, using every available method of promotion, and mostly the internet. And they keep on at it. They care about Old Perithia’s being kept clean, its accessibility to locals and visitors alike, its traffic control and parking places away from the buildings, its lighting and, as happened recently, about its visitors’ information.

They have even ordered and placed a tasteful place-name sign of wood at the entrance of the village (see photo above), and last Sunday they placed a detailed map of the area and information for the visitors in both Greek and English languages. They have also placed at the entrance, a bilingual sign, ‘Welcome to the Heritage Village of Old Perithia’, made in accordance with the standards of the signs of the Greek Ministry of Culture for Heritage sites (picture on the left).

The love for this land, as you see, is not just about talk. It has to be proven and confirmed by our daily acts.

This is exactly what we learn from Mark and Saskia’s love for Old Perithia …

Party of 10? Instead of a villa, why not have a village to yourselves… in Corfu’s oldest village. There are also 5 tavernas (and it’s just 15mins drive to the beach.) For more details…
