Lakones is definitely a village that deserves to be explored.
It is found on the way to one of the most frequently visited spots in Corfu, that of “Bella Vista”. So to get to Bella Vista everyone crosses this beautiful village but not many stop.
It will not take you long since it is not a huge place, but walking around it is going to be just a pleasing experience.
A visit to Lakones can be combined with a day at the beach in Paleokastritsa and an early evening coffee in Bella Vista. Or for those that wish to do more things in a day then why not explore the mountainous region of Corfu. Entering into the small roads from Troumpeta and following the signs for Angelokastro, Lakones, Paleokastritsa and further on Corfu Town.
