Once a quiet fishing village, Roda has become a favourite holiday resort with families who delight in the long sandy beach and safe shallow water. Roda is on a fertile plain at the base of olive-clad hills & surrounded by the verdant hills and valleys of Pantokratoras, Corfu’s highest peak. The area is blessed with a perfect climate, with long hot summer days tempered by cooling breezes from the sea. Being a resort for all ages, Roda’s streets and waterfront are far more likely to be thronged with families enjoying themselves than late night revellers. Roda has clean beaches, a good cross-section of accommodation, fine tavernas and restaurants, bars with entertain-ment and a good choice of shops.
There are plenty of delightful walks, watersports, pony treks and excursions available for those wanting a degree of activity. With so many places of interest to visit on the Island, there is a plethora of trips and tours that can be enjoyed using Roda as a base. There is any number of ways of exploring Corfu, whether you want to sit back and let somebody else do the driving or find your own way around. Roda has a wide range of
vehicles for hire if you prefer to go it alone. If you just want to be lazy, then that’s perfect. With sunbeds and parasols for rent just a step or two from the seafront and over twenty-five free pools within a few minutes of each other, relaxation is assured. If it’s history that you are interested in then in & around the village there are the fascinating archaeological remains of earlier civilisations, testament to the long reputation of Corfu being the ‘emerald isle’ of the Ionian. Take a stroll through the famous olive groves and into the hills. Wander through age-old villages with the sun glinting on pan-tiled roofs where life goes on much as it has for hundreds of years. Meet the local people who are renowned for being naturally resilient, innately hospitable and imaginative and, like many before you, you will never want to leave. From the moment you arrive in Roda, you will know that you are no longer a visitor but a lifelong friend of this wonderful, traditional Greek village.
