Potamos is one of the oldest villages of Corfu. It has taken its name of the river that crosses the houses. It has rich flora and fauna and consists of several churches and old mansions.
If there was not the river the name would probably be ‘’the village of Virgin Mary’’ and the reason is the numerous dedications of the churches.
The river flows from the West Coast of Pelekas village and ends up in the sea of East Coast and the wide area of Potamos. Potamos is a vivid suburb of Corfu Town.
It has restaurants, hotels and some traditional houses.
Old and new architecture buildings are totally harmonized and can be a permanent residence for a family as it is close to public schools and access to the sea is only 15 minute drive.
