The island of Corfu in the northwestern corner of Greece it is very lush and green and many would argue it is among the most beautiful islands in the country. With more rainfall than any other Greek island, there is a variety and abundance of plant life like few other places in Greece. Corfu is a few hours by ferry from Brindisi or Bari in Italy. Corfu (also called Kérkyra) isa good choice with some of the most amazing beaches in the Mediterranean being on Corfu, and while tourism has completely taken over most of the coastal areas, many inland villages are surprisingly unspoiled. On the eastern side of the island the land slopes gently to the sea where most coves and beaches are short and pebbly. But a holiday rental on the western side is much steeper and more dramatic, with many coastal cliffs ending in secluded bays or more open, sandy stretches washed by the Ionian Sea. Off the far northwest tip there are three inhabited satellite islets, again all with excellent sandy beaches.Villa rentals on the Ionian island of Corfu offers a memorable holiday experience for all ages. For the cultural enthusiast, the historical old town is fascinating to explore. There are fortresses, museums, churches and ancient cobbled streets full of artisan shops. Families are well catered for with a good choice of wide sandy beaches or small pebble coves. Water sports and boat hire are readily available. The coastline is picturesque. Rocky promontories covered in rich green vegetation and olive groves jut out into the turquoise sea. Further inland there are unspoilt traditional villages to explore. Visitors are warmly welcomed and the experience of greek hospitality will be memorable.
A meal in a traditional taverna is a must and will often be accompanied by dancing and singing.
Corfu has a magic that draws people back. Whether you prefer the heat of summer or the flowers of spring and Autumn, Corfu is a perfect location for a wonderful holiday.
