Sunday at Old Perithia
Lucky me few weeks ago at Sunday I went to one of the most unique places in Corfu - Old Perithia. It's famous village which was built in the 14th century while our island was under Byzantine rule. It's located on the northern flanks of Mount Pantokrator at about 400m above the sea - pretty high and deep in mountains. Our way to the village was extreme and is not for the faint of heart. So this land was ideal for sheep farming and the cultivation of olives and vines, and Old Perithia was soon relatively prosperous. But times were harder by the 20th century, however, and as tourism began to bring wealth and jobs to Corfu’s coastal areas, the village’s residents were drawn back down the mountain in search of work. Today, the village is a protected heritage site whose 130 houses lie abandoned in varying states of dereliction.
I find this place as a ghost village but very charming and neat one. It has few tavernas, about 2 places to have a drink, little bee-garden and a lot of place to walk. My dog Dominikos was really excited about so much greenery, cool places to explore and no other people to disturb. We have found only one German family but they directly felt in love with Dominik. Only there in Old Perithia I have felt Fall this year. Since the place is high and has other temperature, the trees already turned yellow and the air is a bit colder. By the way, speaking about air - what a treat! It's so clean and fresh. Such a burst of energy.
So let's talk about fashion! Lately I'm deeply obsessed with white color. I am wearing it pretty often and it makes me feel really nice. This season I've got some new comfortable pieces as White Denim Jeans from Pull&Bear, Long-sleeve t-shirt from Zara (only 10euro) and Pull& Bear Platform Sneakers (on sale with 20 euro now). Everything of it is simple to style and difficult to part with. It's my absolute Basic this fall.
Even Corfu is an absolute paradise, everyday it's getting colder and colder here. So little by little I'm wearing more sweaters, hats and scarves. I love to feel cozy and warm during FW season and my collection of sweaters helps me with it a lot. Well my new White Casual Sweater is from Just Fashion Now and is just perfect for a walk in nature. First of all it's oversize and I like how simple it's to hang it on my shoulders and of course also wear it as it should be worn. At the second it has a nice knit with elegant front pattern and chic cuts on the sides.
So if you guys will ever be in Corfu make sure to visit Old Perithia village. It's truly an amazing place to see how greeeks were living centuries ago.
