About Corfu

Sun-drenched white beaches, lush vegetation inland and some of the most beautiful luxury holiday villas in Europe, Corfu is fast shaking off its clubbing and fried food past and becoming a very elite place to holiday again.

The north-east of the island around Kassiopi is a particularly lovely place to stay, and that bit further away from the more heavily populated resorts, but the great thing about this island is that you can hire a private luxury villa with a pool, stunning views and that’s quiet and secluded and still only be 10 minutes from Corfu Town and the airport.

You can happily spend a day or more just wandering around the pretty old town, with its mansions and palaces, left over from Corfu’s colonial days. The town’s colourful houses and tranquil squares have given it UNESCO world heritage site status. A good handful of museums as well as two forts will give you plenty to do should you tire of the people-watching.

Walkers and nature lovers could spend a week on a luxury villa holiday here happily, without even setting foot into a town. The island has some truly stunning countryside, just made for hiking, where you can get to know the heart of the island – the ‘real’ Corfu – passing by lagoons home to hundreds of native birds, as well as conquering the island’s highest summits, and wandering through fields of wildflowers and old Corfu villages, where elderly ladies in traditional black dresses and knee-high socks will give you a nod as you pass by.

And as if that weren’t enough, the beaches are, literally, awesome - probably the most beautiful in the whole of Greece.

Getting there:

Corfu International Airport is located in the middle of the island on the western coast, so it’s not far from the airport to anywhere on the island.

Best places to eat and drink in Corfu

Food is fresh and enjoyed slowly in Corfu and you’ll find great meze and seafood at most of the tavernas should you wish to eat out of you luxury villa, It’s hard to go wrong. But there are lots of eating establishments that are just a bit different, too.

You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to places to eat with sea views, but among the best is the family-run Boukari beach restaurant in the tiny fishing village of Boukari. Excellent seafood and great views.

Gourmands should make time for at least one meal at Etrusco in Kato Korakiana whilst on a luxury villa holiday in Corfu. This multi-award winning restaurant has been listed in the ‘top 100 restaurants in the world’. All the vegetables, flowers and fruits on the quirky menu are grown in the restaurant’s own garden.

The winner for ‘best atmosphere’ must go to the Corfu Sailing Club restaurant inside the old fortress where the boats are moored alongside the tables.

Best time to visit Corfu

Festival season begins with Greek Orthodox Easter and goes on until early autumn. The hottest months are July and August, approx. 31°C, but they’re also the busiest. May and June are very pleasant 23-28°C and the sea is usually warm enough to swim in by June, however, it is worth noting the average rainfall drops off a fair bit at the end of May. Equally, September and October are a great time to go, though you might have a few showers to contend with then.

What we love about Corfu

The views, the views, the views! This well know Ionian island is blessed with stunning sea views and quaint tavernas along the waters edge in the many villages dotting the coastline.

We love spending the morning at the Ambelonas estate where you can take part in cookery classes or wine tastings, or simply wander through the pretty vineyard and veg garden and buy some of the fabulous produce on offer to take home for lunch.
