Walking in Central (South) Corfu
Central Corfu (South) is dominated by the island's second highest mountain range, the Agii Deka Massif, which peaks at 570 metres. Topped by a distinctive radar installation, Mount Agii Deka and its outlying spurs provide some of the most taxing walking terrain in Corfu. To the south east, the spur comprises a ridge which stretches as far as Moraitika. To the south west, another spur terminates in the bulk of Mount Agios Mattheos; and between these two ridges extends the great bowl of the Messongi River. North of the Agii Deka Massif, rolling olive-clad hills are dotted with some of Corfu's prettiest villages, and mazed with tracks and footpaths. Underfoot, the terrain of the walks varies from gentle olive grove tracks to rough and stony footpaths which hug mountainous slopes.

Central (South) Corfu
The Central Corfu (South) walking region has as its northern border the National Pelekas Highway, and stretches southwards to the traditional boundary of Corfu's Deep South, the Messongi River. It also takes in Corfu Town. Some of the resorts and villages close to the area covered by this guide are Pelekas, Sinarades, Agios Gordis, Paramonas, Pentati, Ano and Kato Garouna, Agios Mattheos, Moraitika, Messongi, Strongili, Stavros, Agii Deka, Benitses, Gastouri, Perama and Kastellani. Should you be considering a walking holiday in this area, the mountain community of Stavros is an ideal location to stay. The Corfu Trail passes through the settlement, and it also has direct access to many of the region's best hikes, including ones on and around the Agii Deka Massif, and several routes down to the coast at Benitses. Accommodation is available in the Dafnata neighbourhood of the village.

Links to other Corfu Walks areas
The Corfu Trail between Pelekas and Vatos connects the Central Corfu (South) region with the Central Corfu (North) walking area, and in the other direction to Deep South Corfu.

As a buyer of the book, your name and email address will be kept on record, and you will be sent FREE UPDATES upon request.

Unfortunately, graphics greatly increase the size of a pdf file in this format, and their inclusion would prevent dispatch by email of the document. As a result, this book does not contain maps. The best map of Corfu is Freytag and Berndt's 1:50,000 edition, though it is not 100% accurate, and it does not depict most footpaths.
