It's all Greek to me

Hubby and I returned from a great week in Corfu yesterday, so I thought I'd share a few of our holiday photos with you.

We stayed at the Tria Adelphia in a basic, but lovely, apartment about 3/4 mile from the beach in the resort of Arillas.

The pool area was really pretty and quite quiet with it being near the end of the season. The owners were friendly and chatty, and there was a great bar that served lovely meals as well as drinks by the pool.

Arillas itself is surrounded by a beautiful, hilly green landscape.

Spring is supposed to be one of the best times to visit as the countryside is full of wild flowers, but late summer was really pretty too with the grasses and seed heads adding lots of texture and interest to the scenery.

At this time of year the gently shelving beach was fairly narrow - but it's about a mile in length so there was still plenty of opportunity to find a lovely quiet spot.

We were blessed with lovely blue skies, with the odd cloud that provided a welcome cool respite for a couple of minutes.

In amongst the different apartments and tavernas the locals still utilised the land - growing lemons, limes, tomatoes and grapes, and beautifully atmospheric olive groves.

The locals were really friendly.

The landscape of Corfu is really green even in the height of summer (due to its higher rainfall than other Greek islands).

And there were some gorgeous views from the clifftops.

Blue skies and crystal clear waters... friendly people... fantastic food... what more could you want?

We had a great holiday!
