Properties for Sale in Roda
North Corfu has a rugged charm which has made it a favourite spot for Corfiots and visitors for many years.
Its luxuriantly leafy hillsides, flawless beaches and pastel painted villages are a joy to behold and the topography also features craggy cliffs and thick forests.
Popular resorts here include Agios Spyridon, Agios Georgios, Sidari, Almyros and Thinalio, but if you’re considering purchasing property here, overlook Roda at your peril ̶ this sleepy fishing village 38km northwest of Corfu Town has a sweeping 4km shingle beach which has been awarded a Blue Flag for cleanliness and amenities, and its natural scenery is a real treat to any aesthete.
Roda isn’t an overdeveloped resort, with many of the buildings are constructed in the authentic local style, and when you look across the azure waters in the bay you’ll see the coastal mountains of the Albanian coast, while the village backdrop is the majestic Mount Pantokrator, the island’s highest peak. Locations don’t get more dramatic than Roda, so if you get the chance to purchase a property here, grab it with both hands.
Things to do in Roda
If you’re interested in history, the 17th Century Saint George’s church in the village centre is certainly worth exploring, as is the 5th Century Temple of Apollo.
Meanwhile, you can shop for essentials at a choice of supermarkets and a clutch of cafes, restaurants and tavernas provide a diverse choice of dining and socialising options.
As you might expect, many of the activities are focused around the beach here, where there’s a water sports school and boat cruise companies which allow you to charter your own vessel or join organised trips to neighbouring islands and secluded coves.
If you’re feeling fit, the lush countryside around Roda is peppered with hiking trails and horse riding is also available, but if you appreciate the freedom of independent travel and want to strike out slightly further afield, hire a car from one of the may reliable outlets and neighbouring resorts of Kassiopi, Acharavi and Sidari are very close.
Finally, taking a relaxed stroll around Rhoda is a treat in itself ̶ you’ll see friendly locals tending to olive groves in the same way they’ve done for generations, pass churches hidden in the undergrowth and discover stunning views around every corner.
