Lakones Corfu: This is a lovely, picturesque village with one road running through the middle of it. The road is so thin that traffic lights at either end are used to avoid car accidents. The houses are sometimes a bit ramshackle but have a charm. You may even see women wearing the traditional Greek dress here. The village also offers some of the best views on the island with Palekatritsa well below and the boats in the harbour just mere dots.
