Welcome to Corfu

Corfu

Corfu – the adaptable destination

Corfu can offer you the ultimate sun soaked holiday. The beaches here really are spectacular and there are pretty little towns and cities dotted all over the island too. This island has always been one of the most popular with tourists and with its beautiful beaches, spectacular landscape and laid back atmosphere, it’s easy to see why.

Corfu is a Greek island which is located in the Ionian Sea. But what makes it really stand out from other Greek islands is the fact that is boasts a lot of greenery. And of course, the main source of this greenery is the abundance of olive trees that carpet the island.

Corfu may have been the first Greek island to attract package tourists, but there are still unspoilt villages and beaches to be found, and this delightful island remains popular with independent travellers and package tourists alike. In fact, no other Greek island attracts more British holidaymakers. History lovers will be fascinated by the ancient sites dotted around the island, and the place is steeped in Greek mythology. You’ll find every kind of landscape here – farmland and green countryside, rugged mountain scenery and jaw-droppingly gorgeous beaches. The most popular are the stretches of sand around Corfu Town, the island’s capital and a destination in itself with its narrow, cobbled streets. Greeks are famously friendly, but, even by their standards; the welcome that awaits you on Corfu is a warm one.

Whether you’re looking for the party atmosphere of Kavos or the relaxed and peaceful location of Glyfada, there is plenty here to keep people of all ages entertained. Holidays to Corfu are all about the outdoors. So if you are a lover of sun, sea and spectacular views, then this is the holiday destination for you.

Information & Facts

Temperatures during the summer months in Corfu can really soar. Although they normally stick in the mid twenties, temperatures can reach up to 31 degrees in July and August, offering sizzling heat for the sun worshipers. During the winter months, they usually stay at around ten degrees.

Eating Out

As with all Greek islands, the food and wine in Corfu play a massive part in the lives of the locals. So during your holiday you will discover a range of tavernas offering some delicious fresh food to try. Food here is fresh and exciting but the main thing about eating in Corfu is that it is a time to socialise. People on the Greek islands don’t like to rush their meal times. In fact, they draw them out and use them as a time to socialise with their families.

Sightseeing

The beautiful Paleokastritsa is a spot set around three bays. This is one of Corfu’s most famous beauty spots and is really popular with tourists. In fact, even luxury yachts will sail into Paleokastritsa just to admire the views from this town. In Paleokastitsa, you can find some lovely beaches and simply lie back and make the most of the surroundings. Or you can head to the monastery, Moni Theotokou and view the fascinating ceiling carving of the Tree of Life.

Corfu town is a charming place with a strong European atmosphere. Its narrow little streets add elegance to the place which is highlighted by the 16th century fortress there. The town is crammed full of chapels, old mansions and secret gardens just waiting to be explored.

If you’re after a real escape then you won’t find a more peaceful spot than Ropa Valley. Here, you will find absolute peace and quiet and some pretty forests to surround you. For a traditional destination, go no further than Glyfada. Here, you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to traditional tavernas and quiet, deserted beaches. Here, you can really get stuck into the local way of living. The pace is slow which gives you the perfect chance to lie back and enjoy the soft white beaches and rolling hills around you.

If a quiet and peaceful holiday is not on the agenda, then Kavos is the place to be. This is the party capital of Corfu and it is sure not to disappoint. This resort is completely packed full of bars and clubs and for the daytime, there are long white beaches complete with water sports. This destination is always a hit with young travellers looking for quick and cheap getaways.

 

Things not to miss

1. Achillion Palace is an interesting spot. This building was built in 1890 and from here there is a spectacular view of the sea and of Corfu Town. This building attracts a lot of tourists and with so many photo opportunities with the picturesque building and gardens; it’s easy to see why.

2. If you are on a family holiday to Corfu, then you may be looking for ways in which to keep the children entertained. Sometimes, the beach just isn’t enough for them. But Aqua Land provides a whole day of fun for all the family. This water park is one of Europe’s largest and there’s plenty to do here for children of all ages.

3. With such lush surroundings, a lot of visitors like to make the most of the outdoors. There is horse riding, hiking, water sports and golf to keep you entertained.

4. For anyone interested in Corfu’s wealth of archaeological finds, then the Corfu Archaeological Museum is the place to visit. This museum is well worth a visit and boasts the pediment from the Temple of Artemis as well as plenty of other interesting sculptures too.

5. We all like to get a little snap happy with our cameras while we are on holiday and if you pay a visit to Kanoni, you will certainly be pushing that camera button more than usual. And that is because it is here where you will find two small islands. One of the islands houses the Monastery of Vlakhema and the other, which is known as Mouse Island, is home to a 13th century chapel. Mouse Island has a myth behind it and legend has it that this island is actually a ship turned to stone.
