With a laid-back atmosphere and a sandy beach on its doorstep, the Afrodite covers all the bases for a peaceful getaway.
Design-wise, the hotel is typically Greek. Think whitewashed walls, terracotta-tiled roofs and arched balconies. Inside, there are traditional tiled floors and dark-wood furnishings.
The hotel’s rectangular pool comes with a built-in hot tub and a section for kids, and the restaurant boasts a modern yet rustic decor. The menu is mainly classic Greek dishes, but there are some British favourites. You can also grab a light meal or snack at the cocktail bar, which has a sea-facing terrace.
Overview of Roda
Roda is a picturesque village built at the foot of Mount Pantokrator. It’s a real something-for-everyone destination, so it’s equally popular with families, couples and individuals looking for relaxing holidays to Corfu. With a stay at the Afrodite Hotel, you’re well away from Corfu’s major tourist destinations, so you can enjoy an idyllic and peaceful break in the sunshine.
The Blue Flag beach is the star of the show in Roda. Stays in the village aren’t all about lazy beach days, however – there’s a traditional centre to explore and mile after mile of scenic countryside to wander through. With some of the most picturesque views on the whole island, all you’ll need to do is remember your camera!
Things to do in Roda
The Afrodite Hotel is just across the street from Roda Beach, a long ribbon of sand that’s a great spot for swimming and sunbathing. The centre of Roda is just a couple of minutes’ walk away, too.
The shoreline is the place to be throughout your stay. Off the beach, there are tavernas and bars where you can grab a bite to eat or enjoy an ice-cold drink, and when you’re looking for a bit more action, it’s easy to reach Corfu Town. You can also head to the Old Fortress to learn more about the island’s history
