ABOUT CORFU ISLAND
Part of the Ionian Islands, where the Venetians, the French and the British used to live.
With the passage of time the island may have changed, but we can still feel the spirit of a distant glorious past . Its rich multi-cultural heritage, its historic monuments, its stunning natural landscape, its crystal clear seas, and its excellent weather all year round explain why Corfu is one of the most cosmopolitan Mediterranean destinations weaving a powerful spell on its visitors.
In the beautifully preserved Old Town of Corfu, a UNESCO world heritage site, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical “repertoire” came to be successfully applied to local artistic traditions. Palaces, fortresses, austere public buildings of the Venetian rule uniquely blend with lines of drying washing in tiny alleyways and small secluded squares. Strolling through a complex of narrow cobbled streets with stairways and vaulted passages, the so-called “kantoúnia”, will make you feel as if you’ve travelled to Genoa or Naples.
Villa holidays in the paradisical Greek Islands are unrivalled. Think quintessential villages, white, sandy beaches and crystal clear waters - the idyllic setting of the film 'Mamma Mia' may spring to mind...For a holiday in Greece full of traditional culture visit Corfu, one of the greenest of the islands, carpeted with quentessential olive groves. Wander the Venetian streets of Corfu Old Town or get off the beaten track and discover the laid-back lifestyle of its sleepy inland villages.
