a Corfiote friend who has come to UK for a week told me today that she had come to get some good weather as it had been raining and cold in Corfu all week and is beautiful in England.......hope for all the visitors sakes that it cheers up soon.

I don't use any mozzie repellent,. luckily they aren't too fond of me- but I always keep a fan on at night- blowing across the open window- the breeze from the fan blows them back out- nothing worse than that infuriating buzzing- and then it stops and you know it has landed, but where?????

Hi Susie. As in the case with most species, it is only the female that bites (in this case, the Mosquito), :grin: :dup: :grin: . Unlike some species of Mosquito which do only interfere with the human form at dusk, in the case of the Corfu (Greek) Mosquito, this I am afraid is not the case. I find, including the remedies I have mentioned earlier, to be close to the sea water and beaches. They seem to be less of them, if not none.

Have you ever visited Zakynthos (Zante) Susie. I would recommend it, specially at the northern end such as Alykes, or Agios Nikolas. (you can see Kefalonia from there). We loved it. Beautiful long narrow beach with lots of beach tavernas and restaurants, one long street with more tavernas, and a few bars. Most of the hotels are on the outskirts of the village/town, but in walking distance. No taxes, and only two buses a day into Zakynthos Town. However, to get back to the hotels rather than walking, or if you want to go to the next villages for nights out, you can use the many horse and carriages. A novelty in itself.

As I said, we loved it. Plenty to do, lots of excursions and tours, boat trips etc. A very very slow relaxing pace. We did the same one year, went there for a change from Corfu. And it was worth it.

Did not explain myself really. They are not big hotels. Small but nice. Lots of private accommodation, villas and such like. It is a nice place, lots of history about the place. Go in August for St Dionosys Day, what a day out that is.
