Map

  Velonades is a village in the northwest of Corfu, 31 kilometres from Corfu Town. It is located in verdant surroundings, near several lovely beaches, among them Peroulades, Saint George and Sidari.
  The prime occupation of the 1860 inhabitants of the community is olive cultivation and other agricultural activities, but during the summer they provide services for visiting tourists. Rooms and houses are available for rent in this traditional village, which also offers amenities such as bars and tavernas serving local specialities.
  The local people have preserved the traditions of the area, fro example the famous festival of the Church of the Prophet Elias, which is held on the 20th of July. The celebrations begin the evening before, and thousands of people, both Corfiots from all over the island and foreigners, gather for the event.
  Visitors who stay in Velonades are sure to enjoy the sheer tranquility of the area, coupled with the warm hospitality of the local people.
