There is a corner in the Ionian island of Corfu known as the Blue Lake, its name is Porto Timoni, a double bay with turquoise waters that is attached to the island by a narrow piece of land. Corfu, better-known for its unique historic town of Venetian flair, elegant buildings, and stunning colors, has also some of the most beautiful beaches of Greece, where the green exuberance of the vegetation combines with the unique color of the waters of the Ionian, giving birth to many beautiful beaches.

Some of them are really famous, attracting thousands of visitors every year, making Corfu one of the most visited Greek islands. Others, however, remain relatively unknown as it is rather difficult to access these areas. Among these hidden paradises, Corfu boasts the beauty of Porto Timoni, one of the most gorgeous beaches on the island.

A pristine double bay that has long remained a secret to tourists thanks to the fact that access by land is not easy.

Porto Timoni can be found near the village of Afiona, located in the Northwest area of Corfu.

The waters are blue and the two beaches created on the same small isthmus are covered with white pebble and lush trees and bushes. To reach Porto Timoni, visitors need to leave their vehicle and walk for about twenty-five minutes through a path that offers stunning views of the area.

Following this path, it is possible to reach the two beaches of Porto Timoni. Along the way, tourists will discover the unexplored magic of the amazing island of Corfu. Look at this video to learn more.

Laura and Luciano from Italy, preferred to visit northern Corfu, during their vacation, in late May, unlike most compatriots who prefer August. As good friends and colleagues of altercorfu.com, they had prepared us, since last winter, about their high gastronomic requirements. Being a cook in a hotel in Verona, Luciano, and a tourist journalist for a magazine in the same city, Laura, were certainly travelers and not tourists. Early in the evening they arrived in Acharavi and of course the first question after settling in their room was "Christina, what shall we eat?".

The Italian restaurant "Compass" in Roda was my first thought. I knew from the outset that the owner and cook Salvatore would satisfy the demanding tastes of our guests. We arrived at the "Compass" at 09:00 in the evening and we found easily a parking spot. "So far so good," I thought as we went into the restaurant.

Salvatore welcomed us with a smile and before leading us to our table, he guided us to his crystal clear kitchen. "We keep going very well," was my satisfied thought.

Laura and Luciano, clearly pleased with the reception of Salvatore and as related to the subject, began a familiar conversation with Salvatore about the gastronomy and preferences of tourists in northern Corfu. I did not understand much of Salvatore's gourmet creations, as my culinary knowledge is limited, but from the shining eyes of our guests I immediately realized they were impressed and satisfied.

The environment of the restaurant as well as the immediacy of Salvatore, gave us an idea about what would follow at the table.

Laura and Luciano did not ask for a menu. They asked Salvartore to bring whatever he considered. In just 10 minutes, Salvatore began to bring to the table a feast of colors, images and fragrances that made us craving them.

At the beginning, the table was decorated with Tagliere misto (wood board of various kinds of cheese, cold cuts, fried mozzarella, mix bruschetta, arancini & caprese salad), Feta al Forno (baked feta cheese with tomato & herbs), straccetti di Pollo (chicken with veg & tomato sauce - spicy) and salad caprese (with rocket, tomato & mozzarella).

What if they were only appetizers. We immediately made them disappeared and we were filled with the big portions of Salvatore, but our mind was stuck in the impressive pizzas served to the rest of the satisfied customers of the restaurant.

For Luciano, Salvatore brought a Greca pizza (with sausage, olives, feta cheese, tomato & oregano). Laura took a Capricciosa pizza (with tomato, mozzarella, ham, mushrooms, aubergines & olives). And I took a Quattro Formaggi (with tomato and 4 kinds of cheese).

Incredible pizzas, we were left with a stunning taste of flavors tied together.

The Salvatore's gastronomic journey did not stop there. Stuffed by the large quantities of appetizers and amazing pizzas, we asked the Salvatore, the next dishes to have smaller quantities as we wanted to taste a dish from each menu category.

The seafood was next. 3 dishes that left us with spechless. Salmon alla Grigla (grilled salmon fillet), Salmon al Cartoccio (with seafood sauce in foil) and Gamberoni al limone (kings prawns in lemon sauce).

One step before we burst out of the great food, Salvatore kept shooting us with their gastronomic creations. Next in line was the meat. Fillet Steak (served with balsamic vinegar sauce), Beef Fillet (in green pepper sauce), and Chicken Fillet (with cheese, ham & tomato sauce).

The silence that prevailed at the table made me feel content, seeing our guests finding exactly what they were looking for.

And along with the wonderful Cabernet wine, there were 3 great sweets. Cheese Cake, Brownies (ice cream) and Pannacotta (light fresh desserts served with the fruit of the forest coulis).

Laura and Luciano were ecstatic and began to search for their bags. "What are they doing?" I wondered, and before I finished my thought, Luciano pulled out his notebook and noted recipes given to him by Salvatore so he could apply them to the hotel where he was working in Verona. Laura, took off her camera, and photographed Salvatore's dishes, writing at that moment the tribute she would do for him, within the tourist magazine where she works in Verona

At that moment I realized that the first day of our guests went extremely well. It goes without saying that after so much food, there was no other program to go out at night. We remained at Compass until the early hours, drinking the wonderful wine and talking to Salvatore about his experiences on the island.

The three of them immediately showed that they had chemistry and switched telephone and social media profiles. A great friendship had just been born. A friendship with common passions as the love for gastronomy, northern Corfu and tourism.

And what else would someone ask for, in order to see his guests satisfied? Grazie Salvatore ...

Following the huge success of the previous three series, ITV has re-commissioned popular Corfu-based drama The Durrells for a fourth instalment.

Produced by thriving drama indie Sid Gentle Films Ltd. the new series will see acclaimed actress Keeley Hawes (The Missing, Line Of Duty) reprise her role as matriarch Louisa Durrell for a brand new six-part series.

Based on conservationist and author Gerald Durrell’s trilogy of books about his family’s time in Corfu during the 1930s, the fourth series will be once again written by BAFTA award nominee Simon Nye (Men Behaving Badly, Reggie Perrin) and filmed on the idyllic Greek island.

Josh O’Connor (God’s Own Country), Callum Woodhouse (Cold Feet), Daisy Waterstone (And Then There Were None) and Milo Parker (Mr Holmes) will also reprise their roles as Louisa’s spirited and slightly wayward children, Larry, Leslie, Margo and Gerry; whilst Greek actor Alexis Georgoulis (My Life In Ruins) will return as chauffeur and love interest, Spiros.

Described as “pitch-perfect period escapism” by The Guardian and “a warm-hearted creation with a steely core and mischievous twinkle” by The Times, The Durrells has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2016. It continues to be one of ITV’s highest rating dramas, with the first episode of the latest series consolidating at 6.7m with a 26% share.

Founder of Sid Gentle Films Ltd. Sally Woodward Gentle (SS-GB, Any Human Heart) said: “We couldn’t be more delighted to be making more of The Durrells with our exceptional team and on the magical island of Corfu – it is a dream come true.”

ITV’s Senior Drama Commissioner, Victoria Fea, added: “The Durrells has proven immensely popular with viewers and critics alike, so we’re thrilled to have commissioned another series. Simon Nye’s writing is witty, big-hearted and hugely engaging, so we’re looking forward to seeing what the fourth series has in store.”

Fans were rooting for romance between Louisa and Spiros during the finale of the third series, which aired earlier this month. With the pair finally declaring their feelings for one another, it seemed that love was on the cards until the return of Spiros’ wife made for a teary ending. Will the couple be able to overcome the obstacles to rekindle their relationship in the new series?

The fourth series of The Durrells will be executive produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd.’s CEO Sally Woodward Gentle and Managing Director Lee Morris (SS-GB, Da Vinci’s Demons), together with Simon Nye and Keeley Hawes. Filming is set to take place in Corfu later this year and Christopher Hall (Critical, Dracula) will return as the series producer.

It commemorates the incident when the Saint saved his people from starvation, by redirecting ships loaded with wheat to Corfu after his apparition appeared to the captain. The long procession moves to the funereal tunes of the three philharmonic bands. The ‘Old’ Band play the funeral march from Faccio’s Opera ‘Amleto’, the ‘Blue’ band play de Michelis’ funeral march ‘Calde Lacrimae’ (Hot tears) and the Capodistrias Band play from Beethoven’s funeral march from the Eroica Symphony. After the end of the Litany, the Saint’s holy relics lie in repose outside the door of the crypt in Saint Spyridon Church until Easter Tuesday.

11.00 – The first Resurrection. After the end of the morning service at the Orthodox Cathedral, church bells around town signal what we call the “First Resurrection” and according to custom, people all over the island hurl clay pots ("botides" in the Corfiot dialect) from windows and balconies which crash noisily on the streets below. Another old custom of Corfu Town residents is the “mastella”, a great half barrel placed at the heart of the town, Pinia. The barrel is filled with water and decorated with myrtle and palm leaves. Passers-by throw coins in it and make a wish. When the church bells ring at 11 a.m. the person standing closest to the barrel is pushed into it. As compensation for getting soaked to the bone on a day like this, he gets all the money in the barrel. (Organized by Corfu Events Organization)

Early holiday bookings to Greece for the 2018 season are up 25 to 30 percent from the German market, compared to 2017, Greek Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura said on the first day of the ITB Berlin 2018 trade show on Wednesday.

Speaking to GTP Headlines on the sidelines of the exhibition, Minister Kountoura said that some tour operators are even seeing early bookings for Greece rising over 30 percent this year.

“Germany is following Greek tourism’s growth trend of the last three years, which showed records in both arrivals and revenue… This year started very well from all our traditional markets – we are first or second in their travel preferences – and this can also be confirmed here at ITB, which is a leading tourism exhibition… I think that Greece is now a world leader in global preferences,” she said.

More flights to Greece
Moreover, the minister said that more airline companies are including additional flights to Greece in their schedules this year. “This is extremely important as in 2017 we had more than 2,000 additional flights added for Greece and this year we are seeing a 10 percent rise,” she said.

While in Berlin, Minister Kountoura will attend scheduled meetings with Germany’s major tour operators, airline companies, journalists and Greek media correspondents.

Întinsă pe o suprafață de peste 580 km pătrați, Corfu cuprinde atracții naturale și numeroase construcții istorice – de la Palatul lui Sissi, cele două fortărețe din Kerkyra și pană la Blue Lagoon, Peșterile Albastre sau Paleokastritsa, simbolurile locului te vor ține ocupat un sejur întreg odată ce ai poposit aici.

Croaziere de lux pe vasul cu podea din sticlă
Corfu îți rezervă numeroase surprize pe parcursul sejurului tău. În funcție de preferințe te poți bucura de relaxare sau de nopți pline, ori le poți combina pe ambele într-o escapadă de neuitat. Alege o croazieră spre Diapontia Island – un grup de mici insulițe răsfirate în apele Mării Ionice, aflate la o distanță de numai 6 km de Corfu și la 40 km depărtare de coasta Italiei.

Poți opri pe plajele sălbatice din Othonoi și Mathraki și să practici scufundări în golful insuliței Ereikoussa. La fel de relaxantă poate fi și o croazieră în vaporul piraților spre Peșterile Albastre, așa numitul Palat de cleștar al nimfei Nausika. Cu un iaht VIP cu podea din sticlă ai șansa să admiri spectacolul subacvatic în timp ce te îndrepți spre cel mai popular loc din Corfu – Laguna Albastră, locul unde s-au filmat și câteva cadre din celebrul blockbuster Blue Lagoon cu Brooke Shields și Christopher Atkins, în roluri principale.

Dacă îți plac plimbările pe mare ceva mai lungi poposește pe insulițele Paxos și Antipaxos, unde plajele virgine cu nisip alb te așteaptă să te răsfeți la soare. Bucură-te de o plimbare boemă în Gaios, orașul principal din Paxi, cu un centru istoric fabulos în stil venețian, mici bisericuțe bizantine și terase pescărești unde poți încerca cea mai bună dorada în stil local.

Irene Pouliassi, Gardenia White, Wei-Chung Lu, Yi-Chung Huang
Curated by: Sotheby’s:
Angela Kim & Sam Roknivand

"An Elephant in the Room" exhibits the works of four artists exploring Fear, War, Death and Freedom approaching these matters from different perspective, dealing with the desensitized world around them.

The exhibition title refers to the metaphorical idiom for an obvious problem that no one wants to discuss or challenge. Irene Pouliassi’s abstract installation titled “Deathnaut’sTrail” takes a critical view to the philosophical discourse of abjection. She portrays human flesh, bones, and human hair as symbol of the existential vulnerability of being and the process of the aesthetics evolution of the human form in Post-mortem state. For her, ‘An Elephant in the Room’ means others thinking they are safe and immortal. Similarly, Gardenia White’s work deals with the issues of violence and the aftermath of wars. For example, in her installation she questions whether artwork can depict the impact of the war, the injustice and the human suffering that it causes. She examines the invasion of Iraq war and its impact on her work using materials such as rust, copper and iron powder.

In contrast, Wei-Chung Lu interprets the title in a more direct way. Her work represents an ‘Elephant’ itself in order to show that the society should neither try to hide things that are sensitive or controversial nor express it in an obscure way. Moreover, Yi-Chung Huang’s “Disappearing Border” shows a World Map with nail pushpins around the countries, such as Kosovo, Abkhazia, Somaliland and Taiwan. He invites viewers to mark the countries that they think should have a right to be independent with the extra nail push pins provided at the exhibition. His practice on the map is an attempt to express the political realism in the international society.

"An Elephant in the Room" addresses our attempt to tackle conflicts in our contemporary world. They all hope to create engagement and a place for reflection of what makes us human.

Exhibition duration: 15-17 Φεβρουαριου 2018
Thu. 15/2. 17:00-21:00
Fri. 16/2, 9:00-21:00

Pantokratoras, the most astonishing view in Corfu. Pantokratoras is the highest mountain in Corfu with its height at 906m. It covers the NE edge of the island and ends E of Corfu strait. From its peak you have an outstanding view as you can see the entire island and a large part of nearby Albanian coast. During ancient Ages it was called Istoni. Its modern name is owed to the holy monastery of Pantokratoras, built almost on the top of the mountain in 14th century. Next to the monastery there is a coffee shop, and not far from it are placed few telecommunications towers.

In order to visit the traditional villages around Pantokratoras, where the time seems to have stopped, and where the mass tourism didn’t arrived yet, we advise you to follow the panoramic road. Following the coastal road from Corfu town toward northern Corfu, when you’ll arrive in Ypsos you must turn left toward Spartylas, so you’ll start ascending the mountain and after the first village you must turn right, towards Strinylas, a small village with 3 taverns, where you can stop for lunch. From Stinylas you’ll simply follow the road till its end, and you’ll reach the top of the mountain where you certainly shall by impressed by the superb panoramic view.

If you already arrived on the Northern side of the island, the road from the centre of Acharavi will drive you to the Pantokratoras through all its beautiful villages. Pantokratoras has an outstanding beauty and is well known for its beautiful pathways. From Strinylas there is an excellent path leading to the top, with an admirable view. The same path is used also by Mountain bikers, but is suitable for jeep if you prefer off road adventures.
