Discover Corfu this Summer

27th April 22

Ready to discover Greece’s emerald isle? Effortlessly cool and easily charming, Corfu is the ultimate luxury villa holiday destination, with something for everyone. Whether it’s the style, sun, or sumptuous food, Corfu is a firm favourite for our clients and it is clear why.

It is the second largest of the idyllic Ionians, and boasts an impressive Roman and medieval history, unique culture, stunning natural beauty and a wonderfully slow pace of life. Evidence of Corfu’s fascinating history can be seen all over the island, and to help preserve the architecture and historic monuments, including the two forts, Corfu town is on the UNESCO world heritage list. 

We recommend spending some time away from your luxury villa rental to discover The Old Fortress. Stroll through tunnels, past abandoned barracks to bastions and look-out points, and at the top of the fortress, you will be greeted with an incredible panoramic view overlooking Corfu Town. Then head into Corfu Town and admire the Venetian architecture before stopping in the main square and watch the world go by from one of the local cafes. Corfu truly is a unique Mediterranean paradise.

For those who love to be at sea, then Corfu is a fantastic destination for you. Corfu during the day is all about boats. There is nothing better than heading out to a nearby bay for the perfect lazy taverna lunch, and then stopping to swim in the crystal-clear sea on the way back in the afternoon.

Looking for a day trip? Then visit the Canal d’Amour or Love Canal. The rock formations around this area are colourful, crumbly and very unique. There’s a canal here, which leads under the cliff. It’s said that if you swim through, you’ll get married soon. Whether or not that’s true, it’s still one of the most popular things to do in Corfu.

It’s a foodie paradise too! There are over 4 million olive trees on Corfu Island and olive oil has always been a big part of their diet, traditions and history. Try the tasting experience at The Governor –  it is a 5th generation, family-run establishment on the island of Corfu. It’s one of the most awarded premium olive oils out there. Or head to Etrusco Restaurant, which has been included in the list of the 100 best restaurants in the world. Etrusco is full of creative taste combinations by the chef, Ettore Botrini, and should not be missed.

No visit to Corfu is complete without spending time at the beach. We love Agios Georgios.  This beach has been rated one of Corfu’s top sandy beaches, and is a horseshoe-shaped bay surrounded by lush landscapes. For younger children, nearby Afionas Beach is rated as the cleanest on the island. It has fine golden sand and calmer waters that are perfect for families.
