On The Corfu Trail

At The Olive Press we offer bed and breakfast for two people. We are conveniently situated nearly half way along The Corfu Trail, which passes our doorstep. Stay with us for one night as you walk the Corfu Trail or stay with us for your entire walk. We will make sure that you reach your start point each morning, and can collect you at the end of your walking day. We can even provide you with a (human) guide if you wish.

Comfortable twin room, en suite

Rest in our spacious twin room, which boasts very comfortable beds, and enjoy the tranquility of a mountain village. In the morning unfurl with the sun as you breakfast in the courtyard and relish the riotous bird song.
(Ralph is optional)!
