I like the place here especially because there are no cars at all.
The alleys are simply to narrow. And of course I do like very much the romantic atmosphere of the old Town. Just magnificent and admirable.

The space

The Apartment is located in the historic Old Town of Corfu, on the 3rd floor. The house was build about 200 years ago not far from the old harbour (150 meters).
Here in the Old Town there are no cars, because of the really narrow streets. I do live here for 25 years now, so I can give you plenty of Informations about the Town and the Island, Attractions and Excursions, the History of Corfu and how it is to live among the Corfiots.
In case you are not going to rent a Bike or a Car, it is easy to go by public Bus nearly to any point of the Island.
There are countless swimming areas, most of them are sandy beaches and just a few are pepple beaches.
The most and best are on the west coast towards the open sea.
In the evening there are multiple entertainment options in Corfu Town. You can just walk through the charming labyrinth of Corfu
and sooner or later you will probably stop at one of the many Cafes. And while you're drinking an iced coffee you also may enjoy the causual lifestil of the Greeks.
And of course there are plenty of Tavernas, restaurants and bars, where everyone can enjoy him self and the local specialties.

Interaction with guests

Most of the time I will be also living in the same house because I will have lessons with my studends.

I arrived late at night and Michael was kind enough to meet me at the Metropolis church and show me the way up to the flat. The room was simple but good, the bed very comfortable. I loved the view out of the shutters and the sounds of life and laughter floating up from the laneways below. Michael was very helpful with places to go, suggestions for places the locals swim in Corfu town etc. The location of the flat was just fabulous.

Michael was a awesome host. He has a quaint apartment at the top of an old building in the middle of the Old Town of Corfu. He had something to eat for me when I arrived. He was very welcoming. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Michael's place in for 2 nights in June/ July. We were a little confused about the location originally as it doesn't show up on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps, but if you follow Michael's directions and the address he gives you, you will find it quite easily, there's also maps around the city which you can find his street on. We walked from the ferry to the apartment in about 15 minutes and on leaving the main bus station was about a 10 minute walk away. Michael was excellent with his communication and always responded quickly, we were a little later than we first estimated, but Michael was still waiting for us at the apartment. He gave us lots of information and maps, showed us around the apartment and even left us some drinking water & bread for breakfast, which was lovely. The apartment has lots of character, everything you need and for a couple it was just right, we crossed paths with Michael only on a few occasions, so it was almost like we had an apartment to ourselves. The location is excellent, very central but very quite, it was perfect for our stay in Corfu.

We had a fantastic stay at Michaels cozy space in Corfu town. It is excellently situated, right where everything is and close to the main road. The apartment was immaculately clean and organized. Our host gave us a lot of information about the place and we had a good evening getting to know him over some bread and cheese. We recommend this host and this apartment to all, especially those who want to live and experience the real corfu in a real Greek home. :)

Response from Michael:
I am glad to hear that you felt like home at my place, Olesia. That is what I wanted to achieve. Thank you for this really nice comment! How are you doing? I suppose you are back to normal by now. Are you?

Ursprünglich stamme ich aus Berlin, doch seit 25 Jahren bin ich hier auf der Insel zu Hause und verdiene mich hauptsächlich als Deutschlehrer und Reiseleiter.
Was mich hier begeistert, ist nebst dem mediteranen Klima und dem historischen Charme der reizvollen Altstadt, die Kombination von Meer und Bergen,
sowie eine wirklich guttuenden Gastfreundlichkeit und Menschlichkeit der Korfioten.
Darüber hinaus genieße ich es natürlich sehr, dass hier in der Altstadt keine Autos verkehren.
Die Finanzkrise ist selbstverständlich für die Menschen, die hier leben, nicht leicht
zu ertragen. Die positive Seite ist, dass die Leute wieder enger zusammenrücken um ihr gemeinsam besser die Stirn bieten zu können.
Außerdem werden die Menschen in ihrer Not wieder einfallsreicher und vielfältiger.
Diesbezüglich ist meine Lieblingsdevise: CARPE DIEM.
Pflücke bzw. lebe den Tag und mach das Beste aus dem, was das Leben dir bietet.
